In the last section of the text how is the reader prepared for the discovery that the treasure has gone?
There are many different ways in which the reader is prepared for the discovery that the treasure has gone.
At the beginning the writer writes about the way the men approach the hidden treasure.
I think that the men are running fast because it says “it was hard for me to keep up with the rapid pace of the treasure hunters”. This is good because it grips the reader and makes them want to read on.
I also think that the treasure hunters are running fast because it also says
“Now and again I stumbled” to me this sounds like the men are going so fast that it’s hard for the person behind to keep up and that he must be tired because of the running. I think that this would make the reader feel a bit sorry for the person because they are trying to keep up with the men that they are stumbling because of it.
I also think that this shows that the person is determined to keep up with the men so much that they would stumble for it.
I also think that the gradual revelation that something is wrong is good.
In the text I think that the writer is trying to make the fact that something has happened or that something is going to happen. I think this because it says in the text “A low cry arose”.
I think that this would make the reader think that something has happened and that whatever it is its most likely not good this is another example of making the reader become gripped and want to read on.
I also think that it’s good the way that the reader has got the idea across that the there is a sudden stop and that everyone has stopped. The reader has done this by saying in the text “He and I had come to a complete halt”.
This probably makes the reader concerned for the men because there’s a chance that what it is that has made the people come to a complete halt is bad.
Lastly I think that the way that the text ends is good.
The last paragraph is very...
