Evaluating Literature —viewpoint

Whoever
tells the story determines its point of view. A narrator shapes a story by controlling how much information readers are given and when.

The son narrates the events of the story; we see what he wants us to see, through his perspective.
He provides insight into his parents' differing personalities and their clash of values.
He is frank about his own fears and anxieties; later, he tells us about his epiphany—a new found respect for his father and new perspective on life.
