The message Alice Sebold is trying to convey is to listen to yourself The Lovely Bones is a meaningful yet depressing story about how people move on from tragic things that can happen in their life. The novel is based upon the Authors personal experience. Which we can see clearly throughout the novel. There is a sense of reality that it could be anyone because Susie was just a normal girl like all of us but yet she has this disastrous thing happen to her. Alice Sebold makes the reader really think about the story and how it could happen to you.
Hazel says this about her favorite book, because the book ends in the middle of a sentence. This shows her negative outlook on life because she had no hope for the future of the book she just assumed that it was over. Eventually, while Hazel and Augustus’ relationship grows, she realizes that Augustus shows her the meaning in her life, “It seemed to me that I had already seen everything pure and good in the world, and I was beginning to suspect that even if death didn’t get in the way, the kind of love that Augustus and I share could never last” (Green 278). She realized that Augustus showed her her meaning and happiness and while she was with him she lived life to the fullest extent that she could, which ties into the theme of living life to the
I think it was a bit strange that Léonce and the kids were gone for such a long time while Edna was messing around with Alcée and falling for Robert. That part could have been a bit more clear I think, but otherwise it has a good storyline. I like the statement that Edna made about giving anything to her children, even her life, but not herself. At first I did not get it and thought it to be strange, but the author explained the meaning very well by the end of the novel. This can relate to real life in the way of suicide.
In the book there was a very well-known event in the book that I’ll never forget. This event was when John Barton suicides and when Josie found out about she turned hot-blooded and over dramatic in second and then she realised that these things happen she must keep moving forward, this was mostly taught by Michael Andretti. And Josie’s best friends, Lee, Sera and Taylor played an important part in the novel because Josie’s friends helped her in taking choices and decision. Josie always disagreed with Nonna but when she found out about her dark secret, they both formed a strong bond between each other. After this event she learned that not everything is as it seems.
Reading this story, from Mama’s point of view, limits our ability to understand the viewpoints of the other characters involved. Mama describes Maggie as being “simple and not very bright”, but she may just be very introverted and if you heard this story from Maggie’s vantage point, she may come across as very caring and wise beyond her years due to the tragedies she experienced in losing her home to fire and in being burned. Also, in Dee’s defense she has the right to feel proud in regards to her education and “making it” in the outside world. Her personality is flamboyant and she is portrayed as being highly motivated which contrasts sharply with Mama and Maggie’s personalities. Mama may be misunderstanding her actions due to their very
It was nice to have a summary of the book, but I think she sort of went a little overboard on the summary though. Because she wrote about most the book so the only thing I guess she left out is what happens at the end, which is expected. Despite some mistakes in the review, it was a good review of the book. It could have been better with a few grammatical and had she looked twice at the book. There was a summary of the book itself and even a recommendation.
I think the most valuable book for me was The Pigman by Paul Zindel In ELA class. Even though it was hard for me to understand, but I still enjoyed it. This book helped me to understand how to use foreshadowing. Foreshadowing can make the story more suspenseful. For example, the author described that Bobo he didn’t eat food and was sick.
It was like the author was trying too hard for this book to be fun and light and cute... but it just seemed silly and poorly written. I hate saying things like this, but when it becomes that big of an issue for me I have to point it out. Also, all of Braswell 's characters, both the old and the new, had one major flaw: lack of characterization. It 's as if Braswell expected the reader to use and be satisfied with prior knowledge. I was not satisfied.
In my opinion, the article was somewhat entertaining and interesting for me because, I’m interested in knowing more about languages especially languages that are endangering. However, the points that made me dislike the article somewhat is that she didn’t support her ideas clearly and because she didn’t have adequate ideas she started repeating some
