J. is the first person narrator, His anecdotes are humorous, particularly when told in flashback. Consider, for instance, when J. recollects his visit to the British Museum to research a treatment for his hay fever, and after reading about diseases, convinced himself that he was suffering from every illness known to man except for housemaid’s knee. J.’s doctor, clearly recognizing the man's paranoia, prescribed him beefsteak, beer, walking, and good sleep habits, and urged him not to “stuff up your head with things you don’t understand” Storytelling, accompanied by humorous anecdotals. This is a pattern used throughout the novel.
