Line of Fire is particularly effective in conveying meaning through powerful imagery -- powerful imagery to establish connections in the minds of readers with the story's characters and plot. Imagery is the picture we form in our minds of the story we read. It can involve, visual, auditory, olfactory, gustatory, tactile, kinetic, and kinesthetic. Griffin uses these imagery to translate words into a visual story that we can see and participate in within our minds. Describe the use of imagery in this novel.
