She states that maybe all the family members are actually on the trip and the loneliness is only imagined (Sinor, 2008). She questions the reality and begins to wonder whether the expressions made by her uncle are actually the truth. I found this section quite challenging and I had to reread it several times to ensure that it was just speculation. At one point, I thought that the author’s uncle did not actually die and that this story was imagined. However, in the end, I understood that the narrator was only searching for comfort and that the realization that her uncle was dead was difficult for her to accept, hence the confusion between reality and illusion.
In the beginning of the novel, Perry was an uncertain teen who didn’t know where his place in life was “The real question was what I was doing, what any of us were doing, in Nam” (69). By the middle of the book, Perry started to become doubtful of himself and started to say Jenkins and Carroll died because of him “In a way i felt real bad just for being alive to write it” (110). And by the last few chapters he really starts to lose his way and lose his judgement from right and wrong “Maybe when we all got back to the world and everybody thought we were heroes for winning it, then it would seem right from there” (229). During my reading of Fallen Angels, I began to notice the theme, and I think the theme is that War is devastating to people because it can totally mess you up psychologically and physically. Perry for example was already uncertain of his future and his knee injury already had him on edge.
Curley’s wife is over stereotyped in such a way that it helps define her character and foreshadow her demise. She is self obsessed and she builds herself up by dragging other people down. Curly’s wife never achieves her dream because she trapped herself in an awful marriage to escape her family and did not think about the consequences. When she was younger, Curley’s wife desperately wanted to be a famous actor. People told her that she had incredible talent and was a “natural” at acting, and she looked past the possibility that these could all just be good pick-up lines, weaving herself a web of lies (88).
The trouble was I’d been finding that door my own self because I got scared of being lost so long and went to hollering so they could track me” (Kesey 132). As readers have seen in the past, the fog is known to hinder Bromden’s ability to remember events from the past. On page 130, it is evident that when Bromden finally gains an understanding of the fog machine’s purpose, he is able to remember a huge part of his early life that he had forgotten about while undergoing treatment by Nurse Ratched. A few pages later, the analogous shift in Bromden’s confidence is seen with the lack of fog, as he finally realizes that he is capable of resisting the
The beginning of the book illustrates this feeling by saying, “Ships at a distance have every man’s wish on board.” What Janie wishes for is just out of her reach, and it takes a lot of living and learning to find out how to get it. At first, all she thinks she wants is a marriage, but after her two unsuccessful marriages all she wants to be free.

She only needs one reference to Harry Potter and then everyone knows who she is. She uses a lot of energy on humor in the first part. Maybe because she is nervous, which she indicates that she is with “But the weeks of fear and nausea I have endured at the thought of giving this commencement address have made me lose weight. A win-win situation!” (Page 1, column 1, line 7-10) maybe she wants to get rid of her nervousness or perhaps she just wants a bond with the audience before talking more serious. She uses ethos here because the speech is from a graduation and she’s an expert in graduating because she experienced it herself and she has an excellent life now.
