Character analyses

  Nobody Owens is the main character in this story. Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bob, is perfectly normal boy. Nobody Owens is a typical boy except for the fact that he calls a graveyard his home.  His family was murdered when he was a toddler and Nobody only saves himself from a similar fate by being innately curious.

   The overall story of Nobody Owens is captivating and endearing.  Nobody is an easy to love character and at the end of the book, i almost wish i could follow the boy to see where he might end up.

 I really like what he said at the end ” I want to see life. I want to hold it in my hands. Iwant to leave a footprint on the sand of desert island. I want to play football with people. I want everything.”  I think the world has a lot of people just want same like him and I am one of them.
