    The Dead Paper of Gilman's Yellow Wallpaper This passage from The Yellow Wallpaper clarifies the position of the reader in the story. It brings into question, right on the first page, who the woman (and Gilman herself) is addressing and why.

    In the pages 384-386, Zusak describes to the reader the mood after the air raid. On page 385, the author breaks the sentences down from the usual rich and descriptive type, into short sentences with the bare minimal word count needed to convey the information to the reader.
