Wanted wider world view from I'm Not Scared

I'm Not Scared - Niccolò Ammaniti, Jonathan Hunt


As I began reading, I realized that I'd read this before. And I had the same impression of it this time as the first time. I liked it. It's a very evocative depiction of this moment in 9 yr old Michele's life. But ultimately, I wanted more than the narrow focus it provided. I really wished the scope of the world - and the story had been widened to answer more questions and provide greater insight into what prompted these events in the first place. For example 
I couldn't understand why the rich lawyer was involved when his family had such disdain for the others.
(show spoiler)
 I just wanted more.
