But, they are wrong, just as Max knows. In addition to this quote, there is another, which reads, “That’s how he talked, right out of a dictionary. So smart you can hardly believe it.”(13).Again, this quote shows Max’s realization of Kevin’s intellect. Max refers to Freak speaking with advanced vocabulary, and just being highly intelligent on many topics throughout the book, so it is obvious that Max notices this regularly. Max notices this more than Freak’s size, which is a lesson that he learns.Not presuming something about another is a very significant life lesson, but friendship being an important relationship in someone’s life is just as
In “Bones”, the forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan, also known as Bones, has many similarities to the famous detective Sherlock Holmes. Sherlock Holmes is an intelligent human machine who is detached from society with the exception of his occupation. Although Sherlock Holmes does have a family, he isolates himself from them.

The character Sherlock Holmes in the TV series “Sherlock” (2010-17) based off of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Detective stories depicts Holmes as a highly functioning sociopath. The true definition of a sociopath is a person with a personality disorder expressing itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior and a lack of conscience. A highly functioning sociopath is someone with identical traits, however tends to be more intelligent, and better at integrating with society. Although Sherlock Holmes displays many of these traits he nevertheless represents the central theme of friendship throughout the series. The friendship or partnership between himself and John Watson goes beyond just working together to solve cases and stop Sherlock’s villainous
Voting Is An Important American Issue During my personal experience during an election, I believe that each arguement is a very compelling and potentially problematic concern. Each method of voting has a potential flaw, such as , paper ballots can be tampered with, stolen, or even hard to read in some cases. On the more positive side the paper method can be very easy to use for all people including those who are disabled, the instructions are clear, the choosing of candidates are simple, and for the elderly it 's easy as well, because not everyone is a computer whiz and would rather choose a method to which they are more comfortable like paper and pen, because evryone in our nation at one point or another have been to school and used old fashion paper and pen; Computer Technology wasn 't always around. The paper method is a great choice and I personally found
It is almost like he is numb inside. Ironically, when Charlie realizes his beloved Aunt Helen had sexually abused him, he has a nervous breakdown, but his friends are there for him. “The best thing about Patrick is that even when you’re in a hospital, he doesn’t change” (Chbosky 209). Still, his immense love for her led him to suppress the memories of these events, even though subconsciously it was impacting his life and who he had become. Charlie concludes that he no longer needs to write his letters as a release for his emotions.
The ghost represents both Kafka’s descent into the supernatural and serves as his ultimate ordeal. Kafka is split between whether or not to love the ghost as he realizes the ghost is a younger version of Miss Saeki, the head librarian at Komura Memorial Library. The current Miss Saeki also agrees to this relationship as she makes love to Kafka later in the novel. This internal struggle is reminiscent of when the Greek hero Oedipus married his mother by accident or the concept of forbidden love in stories like Romeo and Juliet in which the lovers realize that their love for each other is strong but would be viewed negatively in

Released in 1958, Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo was not very popular, but as time went on, the film gained acclaim and became noted as the quintessential Hitchcock movie. After being released from his job as a detective because of his vertigo, John “Scottie” Ferguson is asked to follow his friend’s wife, Madeleine. As he investigates her, he begins to become obsessed with her, being drawn to her mystery. After she commits suicide by throwing herself off a bell tower, Scottie later sees a woman who looks exactly like Madeleine. His obsession pushes him to remake the woman, Judy, into another version of his dead lover.
They do not develop a strong relationship with him before he ultimately dies, though, because they saved his life, a small relationship does develop. In Sparks’ novel, when he knows he will die soon, Ira calls his lawyer and sets up an art auction, inviting not only art critics and collectors from around the world, but also Luke and Sophia. This surprised me, as a reader, because Sparks does not show much of a relationship between the pair and Ira after they rescue him; although it may be assumed he invited them because they saved his life and learned his story through the letter they found in the destroyed car. In the movie, Luke and Sophia find Ira as they return from their first date, at the beginning of the movie. After Luke pulls Ira out of his burning truck, he mumbles one word: “box”, leading Sophia into the burning car to retrieve what she learns is a box of letters.
