Wes Ball, the director of the film did want to have his vision on how the "Maze Runner" should look like and add his touch of adapting the source material, but sometimes complicating things only work against you and this is one of those cases as his attempt falls short and just makes this version so different from the world he try to introduce us in the last film. If you like the first movie and never read the books I guess you are going to be okay with the product. It may be a bit confusing as there is not much explanation of what is happening, but still the movie is enjoyable. If you did read the book, just be prepared to have yourself disappointed as the movie has a different perspective on the tales from the
All of their lives have been planned out for them since they were young. Jonas is the main character, and he wants to find out what really happened to his society, and where it all went wrong. The Giver helps him on his journey to find Elsewhere, which is the place with no rules, and you have choices because out in the real world you have the ability to do as you please.

Throughout Ishmael’s journey he very rarely slept without medication. When he would sleep without medication, he would be haunted throughout the night by memories of the war.

This lack of understanding becomes a disappointment for Harry. However, he later comes up with a solution with the helps of his friends, instead of asking for a help who is more mature and wise, such as Dumbledore. Also, this attitude shows Harry’s maturity. Many characteristics of Harry Potter are enforced throughout the book by the author. One of the further development of Harry Potter’s character can be seen when Tom Riddle’s diary goes missing.
In the movie, besides Tyler and Marla, there are some other characters that are depicted totally different. Bob, who makes great effort to lose weight until he meets the narrator, is one such example. After he meets the narrator, he begins to think that it is meaningless to look good. However, he doesn’t any aspire to lose weight in the novel. We can understand from this modification that Fincher merely attempts to catch the audience’s attention but he fails to do so because weight problem is just an ordinary problem of our
I found this fascinating because I didn’t think the workhouse was so strict and cruel. I didn’t know of the food they ate when admitted here and never would I have thought it would be so little. I continued to talk about the conflicts within the workhouse because the guardians here would have had to cooperate with each other in order to run an effective establishment but it is clear that they did not get alone with each other and I found it interesting to learn about this and also would’ve liked to know of the effect it had on the running of the workhouse. I then decided to talk about the layout of the workhouse, because of the strict regimen the layout had a big part to play here. It would’ve had to ensure families could not mix and also that unwanted people were kept out and certain people kept in.
The novel Lord of the Flies is about a group of schoolboys who are stranded on an unknown island and their journey of how they try to survive, but fail. The story lacks any real female character. But why? There no complete answer to this question, but I think it is because in the story the boys learn the a few lessons such as: responsibility, maturity, and respect. "The world, that understandable and lawful world, was slipping away" The boys had challenges and unfortunately not everyone survived.
In the beginning of the text, Jonas is introduced as blind to the imperfect society he lives in. After he is chosen as ‘The Giver’ in training, he soon starts to question his society and constantly asks himself “Why?”, why must they shield themselves from such memories, changing his view on his own life and everyone in it. Since the memories of the past were not present in the minds of his community, they didn’t have the capability of feeling complex emotions like love or physical pain. After being shielded from anything that can harm you, they weren’t aware of how unhuman their way of living
Elyse and Marshall have no idea who they are or what happened, but they stick together to find out the truth. Marshall had to lie about who he was in order to be around Elyse.

Marshall expresses to Elyse why he had to lie and tells her that he’s not leaving her.
