When I finished, I felt very happy and proud of him because I knew he made it through. The reader clearly receives the message that even though the situation is tough, it will eventually pass. Angela’s Ashes gave me and surely other readers a feeling of hope. The way Frank McCourt presented his story and what the story told reaches its readers a significant message. He did it in such an engaging way that the themes the story provides gets McCourt’s purpose through.
At the end, going through rehab, yes, he was miserable, didn’t want to recover, but just wanted to be a part of violence again, he was able to bounce back to the person he was before. Then he started telling people his story because it inspired some and people were able to reflect on themselves. Just one cause can’t be a bad effect, because that cause can explain why you are the person today. Also during that cause, whatever you did doesn’t define you, the effect is the results of how you are that
In the book, “No Great Mischief,” the structure helps to shape the book content by putting everything together piece by piece. The author, Alistair MacLeod, puts the story together by telling memories. With these memories, you slowly have the whole picture put together for you like fitting puzzle pieces together. You get these memories and pieces of the story from the narrator, Alexander MacDonald and his older brother Calum. The story plays out like a puzzle because the events are not given to you in order, they are spread out throughout the story for you to pick up on and put them in their proper place.
The way that peoples collective rights worked in the past wasn’t always through a fair system. In multiple cases, rights were given based off of appearance or status rather than one’s position. An important example of this is the First Nations history of Treaties and the Indian Act. When Europeans came to Canada, not only did they find land but a civilization with it. Multiple treaties were created between the FN’s and Europeans to help both groups so they can live in harmony.
This text appeals to ethos because we know that Ayn is a novelist and also partially created a publication called the Objectivist. She also builds ethos when she explained that she viewed the launch in person. It appeals to pathos a lot because the audience and Ayn herself believe in individualism, freedom, and reason. They both will appreciate how the launch was such a great accomplishment for man. Ayn in detail explains why the launch was so great.
Even Peter Guber thinks storytellers, in this case Atul Gawande, “infuse their stories with meaning because they really believe in the mission” (Guber). This means that storytellers care enough about their topic to make it meaningful to their audiences. In summary, people are attracted to stories, and stories full of meaning are important in getting one’s main points across to the
It made for a good story but if in real life circumstances I wouldn't agree with the act of unwinding. I think the author did a good job with making it realistic but also drama filled. The more you read this story the more you got hooked to it. I would recommend this book to anyone because it makes everyone think about everything. Just the thought of being shipped off to be dismantled scares anyone.
In the end, what Swofford did grow up thinking was a great plan for him, he left with a bit of disappointment, but he clearly learned a lot about himself to proceed to write this story. He wrote this informative novel to provide an actual combat experience for readers that doesn’t transfer watching it on TV. As history will always repeat itself, and we will always have the USMC I think this book is beneficial for everybody to read to get a full understanding of the oppression, identity, privilege, and sexuality issues that the military had brought to the light for Swofford and the struggle that comes of this in ones
Ben was very important in the story, as he was the main character and I liked him as a character. The same can be said for most of the other characters. The stories theme is that it is important to pick your friends wisely and to not hang out with the wrong crowd. This is shown and supported throughout the book, and I would mention this but it is a review and not a report. The book deals with many issues throughout the story.
The individuals mentioned in this book are fantastic and their stories of courage are interesting to read and should inspire anyone who reads them. Having the courage to stand up for what is right and the people we care about is a very important quality for humans to have, and the stories in this book are good examples of why that statement in true. On the back of the book, there is a quote that I now love: “We’re all afraid of something. Some have more fears than others. The one we must all guard against is the fear of ourselves.
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel This Side of Paradise was his first book that he published that sparked his stardom in the world of authorship. Thomas Jefferson once said, “If you find yourself constantly trying to prove your worth to someone, you have already forgotten your value.” Life is quite a journey. There are numerous things that will forgo in life that will cause people to change their thinking or beliefs. The friends’ people hang out with, their hobbies, interests, schools and universities they attend. They are all part of the equation in finding your identity and your purpose in life.
