Characterization

In A Thousand Pieces of You, the main character is Marguerite Caine. So far the way the author has revealed the character is by what she says. She’s really determined to find and kill Paul Markov to avenge her father. When Theo tells her that he’s gonna go after Paul with one of the Firebird prototypes Marguerite immediately tells him that she’s going with him. Then when she gets to the new dimension she writes down really big on a brick wall, KILL PAUL MARKOV.  Marguerite tells the reader about how she’s different from the rest of her family. She likes to paint and is into art while her parents are physicists and are making inventions that are changing the world. She knows somethings about science and traveling to other dimensions because she was home-schooled by her parents. I feel like I haven’t actually learned that much about any of the characters. Another character in the book is named Theo. The author reveals his character with the things he does and what Marguerite says about him. Marguerite mostly talks about how much of a flirt Theo is and how he flirts with every girl he sees. Theo is the person that starts this mission. He’s the one who said he was going to go the Paul first. Which shows how much loyalty he has to Marguerite’s parents. Also, when Theo and Marguerite find out they are in the same dimension, but Theo is in America and Marguerite is in England. So, Theo buys a ticket to the next flight to England. Then, Marguerite has to go to a bar and drink a lot because she has to act like the Marguerite from that dimension and Theo finds her and takes her home. Then the next morning he makes Marguerite’s aunt and her blueberry pancakes. Which shows how kind he is and that he’s a good friend. To be honest, the author hasn’t revealed much about the characters. I even looked up reviews of the book and thing that most of the people complained about was the characterization. I hope that I will at least learn a little bit more about the characters.
