The story is told from the pint of view of the first
person narrator. We know it from sentences like...(I,me)
The narrator can only see what Mr.X sees, not more.
He is not the Mr.X himself because he uses the third
person and keeps his distance to him. So it must be a
narrator outside the story who sees through the boys eyes.
He is outside the story and does not look into the
mind of any person.
The narrator is outside the story. he is informed about
