The father acts more as a realist, living in constant fear. The father’s decisions: leaving the bunker, continuing with life, and telling the boy the robber was going to die anyways, comes from more of the realistic point-of-view; whereas, the boy views everyone as genuinely good, like wanting to give the thief his clothes back. The father’s choices reflect his love towards his son, and even though he suffers immensely throughout the novel, his relationship with his son remains unbreakable.

This made the chills run through me as he came at the time I didn't expected. This brought the sudden climax in the story making me even more anxious that even though Duncan has found the serial killer, how will he ever stop this killing machine. And finally at the end when the serial killer was chasing Duncan down on the subway tracks, they both get hit by the train creating more anxiety in my mind that how will Duncan ever survive this kind of blow. But in the ending he survives and the serial killer dies, thus creating a happy mental picture in the end.
