Writing style

The novel is written from a first-person perspective, in a conversational tone. The author uses humor and abrupt confrontation. For example, in Chapter Seven the narrator says, "I don't mean to be disrespectful, but it smells like the Devil dropped a shit right here in the middle of the camp" (61).
