You will not be able to put it down. S.A Bodeen was really good at creating tension, conflict, and foreshadowing. The events that create tension, conflict, and foreshadowing are when Mason goes into his mom's filing cabinet, when mason is with the girl, and when he returns the girl back to TroDyn. One way the author used tension in the book was when Mason went digging in his mother's belongings, which led to increasing the complications between them. Mason's teacher Mr. Hogan gave him an application toTroDyn, but Mason’s mom wouldn’t let him go and won’t tell him why.
Once Sammy has quit his job, he leaves the store and goes outside hoping for companionship by finding Queenie outside waiting for him, or at least seeing her in the distance. However, once again pushed back into isolation, all he finds is a older mother arguing with her children about some candy in a window, making him feel isolated. At the ending of “The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty”, the differences between isolation and companionship are show to us once again. It is shown when we think he has given in to isolation by letting his wife once again pull Walter Mitty around, but he then starts day dreaming once again, showing us that he thinks everyone knows him and that he is “undefeatable” by lining up and thinking that he is standing in front of a firing squad, hoping that he has found companionship in

Dade was very excited to catch the woman, he planned and waited for weeks to catch the woman Dade only stayed in the store just to see if the woman would come in.

In “House,” Lorraine’s mother deserts her family and, in “Alchemy,” Paula disappears. In “House” the mother abandons her daughters and creates in them a desperate longing to be reunited with her. The impact of her actions, particularly for Lorraine’s sister, Kathleen, is heart-wrenching. One morning Lorraine’s sister Kathleen awakens “choking and wheezing, her eyes wet with tears” (121). One of the most profoundly moving scenes in “House” is Thien’s depiction of two young girls waiting outside their former home on their mother’s birthday, hoping that she will return to them.
Following Harry short departure, Janice is left to cope with her issues, as Updike says, “For some reason watching this makes her so nervous that just out of television-watching habit she goes to the kitchen and makes herself a little drink, mostly ice cubes, just to keep sealed shut the great hole that is threatening to pull open inside of her again. She takes just a sip and it’s like a swallow of a light that makes everything clear. She must just arch over this one little gap and at the end of the day after work Harry will be back and no one will ever know, no one will laugh at Mother. She feels like a rainbow arching protectively over Harry, who seems infinitely small under her, like some children’s toy” (271-272). Near the beginning of the passage, Updike uses a metaphor of a ‘great hole that is threatening to pull open inside of her’, to convey the amount of stress that destroys her.
Disobedience is defined as the refusal or neglect to obey. Disobedience is everywhere. Let's say you are in line at Walmart and you see a little kid crying and crying over a toy that his mother will not buy for him. His mother is upset and is trying to straighten up her kid. A year later you might see the exact same kid behaving extremely well and polite to every person he meets, this new attitude that he has was all led up to because his mother fixed the problem of him being disobedience.
The first essay I chose to read was called I Am in Dementia Prison with My Mom, Janet had no prior knowledge or understanding as to why her mother’s health, mind, and thought process was deteriorating. She couldn’t come to terms with her mom being mental sick and when she did she had help and support from her entire family. The second was titled Transferring Mom was New, But Restlessness and Inactivity Kindled her Agitation. Against her and he husband better judgment she took her mom to the store. I believe she did this because she did not want to tell her mom no, as a caregiver, especially to a loved one sometime following your intuition and saying no can be difficult being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person.
