The following excerpt from “The Thrill of the Chase” consists of a series of short sentences.

Read this excerpt from “The Thrill of the Chase.”Fenn decided he would hide the chest with a copy of his book in the desert, maybe even as he walked out into the wilderness to die. That could trigger a hunt of its own, spark some excitement; one day an intrepid searcher would find his bones and his treasure and learn who he was, think kindly of him. What is most clearly the effect of these longer sentences on the reader?

They are direct and to the point, so they add to the drama of the lines.

It creates mystery by presenting many ideas quickly.

It presents ideas in a direct, rapid, to-the-point manner.

It produces drama and substance by focusing intently on just one or two ideas.
