Character Role Analysis


It's pretty easy to identify the protagonist when a book is written in the first person. And when the title of the book is Marcelo in the Real World, it's safe to assume you're about to hear Marcelo's story. He's the one with whom we take the journey, whether we're reading about his quest to understand human speech or to find justice for Ixtel.
