    The author would write it like this for suspense. It gets the readers to wonder where he's going, will he make it, why he is going across the world. It leaves the reader with so many questions about what will happen next that they will want to read on.

    Yet again every story is a mystery? For example we need to look at the little details that will help us figure it out.
