The story is written in first person by death (the grim reaper). Two different types of font are used to differentiate between the narration, and death’s personal comments. This made it difficult to read, since it broke the reader’s concentration.
The writing style is very clunky. It is written for a young adult audience, so this could have been the reason for that this style was used. The author’s use of suspense, foreshadowing was disappointing. He bluntly informs the reader of what the next event will be, and then 3 pages later, at the most, the event occurs.
This book would be good for introducing World War II, foreshadowing, and suspense to a young audience.
