Here's where the narrator's attitude toward his subject comes in. Call the narrator Will #2, who narrates the story from a distant point in time, and Will #1 who is Will at the time of the telling.
On p. 15, we have the following:
My father-in-law and one of the great living cellists is asking me to help him? Ordinary me? And I'm supposed to say no? Not a chance in hell.Here's where Harrier's Watson differs from Holmes' Watson. Holmes' Watson never felt intimidated by Holmes. He felt curious, intrigued, perplexed, bewildered, impressed, but never intimidated.
But here's the thing. Was Will#1 really intimidated, or did he have some other motive? What do you think? I'd like to know. Post a comment.
