He is humorous, yet somehow finds a way to connect to his audience and engage them in the story. Barry talks directly to his audience when writing. He goes into and out of ‘academic’ style and uses informal language to make a connection to the readers. Barry makes his readers feel like they are reading a book written by a good friend, not someone they have never met before. He does this to embrace his story telling for the differences between guys and men.
In paragraph six of Guys vs Men Berry says “although I can’t define exactly what it means to be a guy I can describe certain guy characteristics.” Berry goes on to define the characteristics that make up a guy as, liking neat stuff, liking neat challenges, and not having a well-defined moral code. Berry organizes his essay by listing each characteristic and describing them with stories and examples to support his claims. One example Berry used to define “guys like neat stuff” is with an example of his interest in overly powerful computers. Berry also uses a story about a time where several of his guy journalist coworkers decided to see how fast they could run the forty yard dash to define “guys like a really pointless challenge.” Finally Berry
When he gets like this his face lights up and I feel bad for not wanting to hear the latest news on software upgrades, e-mail programs, and, hardware improvements. I feel guilty, but I know that I am the normal one. I even pointed his problem out to him by asking, “You can’t control yourself can you?” He just grinned and kept trying to fix my computer. Kip always solves my problem so I should be grateful.
The fact that he can make a non fictional informative story so intriguing and addicting is a large feat. It was effective in many aspects as well. To Be able to inform the reader of a dangerous and cruel being while making the book hard to put down makes this one of my favorite books of all time. I'd recommend this to a vast bracket of bookworms. Those absorbed in the world of science all the way to book junkies looking for an engrossing fix.
Amir would do this so that Hassan wouldn’t ever learn the correct meaning of words and that would make Amir smarter than Hassan. As long as Amir was better than Hassan at anything it made Amir happy. "Read it again please, Amir agha," “Hassan would say. Sometimes tears pooled in Hassan's eyes as I read him this passage (Hosseini 29).” This shows just how serious Hassan felt about the books that Amir would read to him. How he deeply enjoyed learning from what Amir would teach him, just be listening to him
Some people are filled with an insatiable desire to learn. In “Anthem” by Ayn Rand, the main character, Equality 7-2521, wants nothing more than to study the Science of Things and become a Scholar. Although this is forbidden for a Street Sweeper like him, he does research in isolation. He wants to join the Scholars because he is intelligent, inquisitive, and always driven to learn about the way things around him work. Equality knows he is smart, because he was constantly reminded of his transgression of having a quicker mind than his brothers growing up.
This has nothing to do with the last page we ended on and it frustrated me throughout the book that this happened continuously. Overall,“The Hot Zone” is a very good book and I would recommend others to read it. I loved the detail that Richard Preston put into the book and how he made his point across very clearly about Ebola. He is a very good write and I am glad that I got a chance to read this book because it taught me about Ebola and other viruses as well. This is a very good novel and I am looking forward to seeing more of his writing or maybe even looking at others that he has already
He liked interesting topics to write about for his job. Mr. Pritchard was anything but boring. The old man was a civil rights lawyer in the 19502 and ‘60s and told Janie and her father of threats he received during their interviews. During the interviews, Mr. Pritchard mentioned his wife, Hazel. She was a teacher that taught people how to read and write so they could vote.
“My final reducing advice can be summed up into two words: think small. Don’t rummage around in your past…” (Zinsser, paragraph 30) He says he likes to write vivid memories that are in his mind in his memoir. Walter does this by putting important and vivid memories of his past. “But I had… deserved the award for Outstanding Boy.” (Walter, page 68) Walter thinks this is an important memory even thought it might not look like it. In school Walter wasn't a very good student when it came to behavior so something like “outstanding boy” was a big achievement.
Heard of the cook who liked a particular guest? He was always currying favour with him.
