This books point of view is third person. If the story was first person point of view all the objects that he saw we would have more detail, but because it is in third person point of view we don’t have much detail on what he saw.
A symbol for this book would be a maze with many twists and turn and dead ends. It affected the story by all the choices he made it ended up with him winning a tournament but it cost him a way to meet the one and only person that had tried to kill him.
The book is worth reading because if you like fiction, myth, and mystery it is the perfect book for you. If you don’t want to read this book you could always read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone book one.
