Long Way Gone Chapters 5-8
By Ishmael Beah
Throughout these chapters, Ishmael is very intelligent and he shows it by getting himself and his friends out of all these situations. He's very hungry, and it makes him steal corn from a little kid because he's so hungry and desperate. He's also very brave because he tries to not act scared in front of his friends or when he's alone in the woods, when he's really terrified.
The setting changes throughout these chapters very much. Here's a list of some of the settings in these 4 chapters.
- They're in many villages, and twice they're almost killed.
- When they are split up, Ishamael spends a lot of time in a forest until he finds some old friends.
- After him and the boys start traveling, they come to a village where there's just an old man and he tells them how to get to Yele.
