Historical Connection to past or present event

This book "A long way gone" has a connection to a past event in history when people had to work against there will with little to no pay and had to work very long and hard for mental and physical strength. The past event I am making a connection is when there were slaves. Also children worked as slaves a lot like adults and in Long Way Gone the children worked very hard so that is a similarity

Self vs Self

Well Ishmael for a lot of the book is alone and he has to see so many terrible thinks and it effects him a lot, for example. "His loneliness is overwhelming, but he finds solace in the sounds of nature, which gratefully help to drown out his terrifying memories. He begins fearing sleep and where his thoughts might take him". this quote is showing how bad the struggle in being alone.
