Once reading through this chapter, I noticed that the climax was the end of the chapter and I wondered why the author would end on this note. The main character of the story arrives in a rather small town where he has something to take care of hinted by the “suitcase”. The author never explains to us the importance of the suitcase. The main character is also never fully described which also leaves the reader in question of his persona while on the other hand, the author describes the other main characters. Before beginning the main story, the author wants us to feel comfortable in preparation to read the story. A little strange because i have never had a reading experience such as the way Calvino introduces his novel.
