Agatha Christie’s murder mystery novel A Murder is Announced, is full of complex, deceitful characters and an intense storyline that keeps the reader questioning every character’s motive. Each character in her novel has their own background story that gives insight to the main issue; the murder at Little Paddocks.

Throughout the novel, the reader is constantly given the question “Why would the murderer do this?

The story is well written and well-paced as to not present the reader with much information early, but rather only provided in the end to essentially connect all the gaps of information missing prior.

He analyses many things which are not related with the murder, like cake, the hotel room or coffee.

KATE CHOPIN’S “THE STORM” RESEARCH PAPER I believe that most talented authors and artist use their life experiences to contribute to their work or projects. In the case of Kate Chopin I found it interesting that she used her past experience of an affair with Albert to ignite the story “The Storm.” Kate Chopin linked the use of names and setting with the stories she wrote based on her actual life experiences.

She was the second child of Thomas O’Flaherty and Kate’s mother’s name was Eliza Faris. At the age of 5 years old Kate’s family

The appeal that was most obvious was her credentials. Cheryl Strayed has written many works of arts. “Her writings has appeared in The Best American Essay, The New York Times Magazine, The Rumpus, The Washington Post Magazine, Vogue, The Missouri Review, Creative Nonfiction, The Sun and elsewhere” (Strayed 317). She is a bestselling advice-essay collection book, a novelist, and an international bestselling book author of the book Wild. She wrote Wild as a memoir of her own experience using her own personal journals and memory.
The book did an amazing job at character reveal as well as character development. With some books, it takes a reader a while to become enticed by the characters or by the plot. With Wild Seed, it did not take long for many reasons. The first reason is because the book was well written which allowed for myself to follow along without zoning out. Secondly, the book was up my alley because of its genre.
