A Long Way Gone

Does Ishmael receive news about his family?

A. Yes

B. No

C. I don't know

Also, does Junior and his friends die? Why do they get separated?

How many people died in the beginning?

In Chapter 2, Ishmael is pushing a rusty wheelbarrow with a dead body wrapped inside it. He unwraps it. He mentions this entry, "Starting at the feet, I unwrap it all the way to the head, and neck. There are bullet holes. One bullet has crushed the Adam's Apple and sent the remains of it to the back of the throat. I lift the cloth from the body's face. I am looking at my own." Based on this passage, what can you tell by Ishmael's reaction as he lay sweating on the cool wooden floor of his house?

Hey, you need to split up your questions. Submit each one separately. There are too many for one space.

OK, thank you!
