I also had the same reaction. I had to re-read the three sentences a couple of time to convince myself it was the hero who said them all.

The convention also seemed weird when I started reading English — my native language uses different conventions for dialogue, not involving quotes — but now I find it “non-standard” uses (like yours) confusing.

Oh, well, the author gets to pick :-)
