A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier Narrator Point of View

By Ishmael Beah

Narrator Point of View

First Person, Central Narrator

A Long Way Gone is Ishmael Beah's memoir, so that means it's told by him and from his point of view. Since the author can't possibly know what any other characters are thinking (he's not psychic after all), we only get to focus on what's going on in Ishmael's life.

Hey, one boy soldier is enough to worry about.
