Meaning Behind the Cover
Alright, lets first notice the book in boy's hand. This book is titled 'Pygmy'. He joined the army, as displayed by the uniform, because it is insane to join the army and he wants to kill himself. This book drove him to insanity and suicide. Oh, and did I mention it made him tear off his arm so he didn't have to read the book any more?
Yeah, this'll get me bashed. I don't really believe all that, but... I thought of it and it's partly true. Hopefully my opinion on this book will be changed by the end. But seriously, what's up with this? I can only understand about three sentence a page.
