When the author creates the scene when Link arrives in London for the very first time

When the author creates the scene when Link arrives in London for the very first time, Link is displayed as naive and making a few crucial mistakes that can’t be fixed. Swindells further creates this when his character Link quotes this metaphor “You’re on the old downward spiral,” When Link says the words old and spiral in the metaphor, it makes it seem as if Link has had more mistakes before he was homeless, as a result it causes the readers to sympathise. The important matter that link uses a metaphor, adds to the fact that once you make at least one mistake. There will be no turning back.
