Snape at many occasions has demonstrated his choice to truly belong to the good side still however he will never be qualified as a hero. He is difficult and unpleasant, and has no qualms to subject his students to this attitude. Snape was once a Death Eater and therefore implying his loyalty towards Lord Voldemort (Goblet of Fire). We know very little about the early life of Snape making it easy to believe that Voldemort and his ideologies were something Snape greatly admired, (“Snape knew more curses when he arrived to school then half of the kids in seventh year”, according to Sirius Black). Snape had also invented a curse , Sectumsempra (Half Blood Prince), which is rare for a student.
The quote that shows that Salva shows persistence and helped his survive come from page 67 of the book, it reads, “The way they were treating him made Salva feel stronger still. There is no one left to help me. They think I am weak and useless. Salva lifted his head proudly. They are wrong, and I will prove it.” Before this quote, Salvas uncle had been shot and no one helped him.
After reading two-thirds of the book, one can quickly grasp that Reuven is quite different in character when compared to other teenage boys. Reuven to many followers of the book can be characterized as a sympathetic boy. He is sympathetic because of his emotion toward his roommate in the Memorial hospital and the grandeur president of America. Reuven’s friendly love toward Billy can be evident when he heard the bitter news from Billy’ parent that he will be blinded forever. However, his tears did not drop during the phone conversations, but when he was alone.

Abagnale finally reached a point to where he had to move away from his family because he could not deal with the depression of it. After moving away Abagnale did not know what to do.

Who, in comparison with his brother, has a whole different look then his brother, the story had said, “Donald was bony, grave, and obsessed with the fate of the soul”(364). Saying this, it completely adds to the fact that people couldn’t believe that these two men are brothers. As well as these two brothers looking different from one another the story also emphasizes that unlike his brother Pete, who was married and had kids, Donald is , “the younger brother, was still single”(364). This probably shows why Donald was such a carefree person because he doesn’t have any responsibilities to deal with as an adult, while his brother had many responsibilities to look over throughout his life. In addition, “He lived alone, painted houses when he found the work, and got deeper in debt to Pete when he didn’t” (364).
The new coach is hardly welcomed with open arms, either by the school 's staff or the students, and the newly integrated team is full of players (both black and white) who have little trust or respect for one another. But Boone is determined to put a
Millions of parents and athletes across the country have encountered the issue of playing time when it comes to high school sports. Each one of them is oblivious to the fact that playing time is decided by ability. Not by the coach. Innings, playing time, minutes, games- It is called many different things, however, they all mean the same thing- how hard the athlete is willing to work towards the sport and whether they show it. Therefor, high school coaches should not be required to give equal playing time to all of the players on the team because it is an unfair practice and stunts the growth of the more successful players.
This type of peer pressure -usually- involves direct confrontation, and it is hard for teens to come up with an excuse (on the spot) that others find valid and reasonable. Usually everyone feels quite guilty with whatever decision he or she goes with. Like for example if you say yes, (and agree to skip school) that day, you would feel guilty and crummy you disappointed your parents, but on the other hand if you say no and make up and excuse you could feel left out because all your friends skipped school and you’re the only one here not having fun. Indirect peer pressure can seem as convincing as direct peer pressure. An example of indirect peer pressure is like when a friend of yours keeps on talking about a game that’s phenomenal, and you go buy the game after hearing what he said, means that you just gave into this type of peer pressure.
As timely now as it was written 48 years ago, “The Outsiders” is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction written by S.E Hinton. Books such as “The Outsiders” have the power to affect readers’ lives and stay with them forever. Ponyboy’s life was not easy, he had it tough and he is very aware of that. But he finds ways to make it work. I really liked this book because it was like a “Blast in the past” sorta thing because we are reading a book about a 14 year old in the mid 60s, and he is talking about the issues he has and the differences between the two groups the Socs and the Greasers,we get a rare glimpse of a boy 's life in the 60s and we get to read a unique piece of literature which we can’t find nowhere else.
I disagree with the author that Chris McCandless was a crazy person, a sociopath, and an outcast, but even though he was very bright, he made some decisions. Before entering the wild Chris had just recently graduated from college with his degree. He was an intelligent student without any street smarts. Upon his departure, he left behind his sister whom he loved very much and his parents who he was upset with. That was a feeling he had especially about his father.
His mind is weak from the constant strain and stress of the Holocaust. Your conscience is your mind that tells you right from wrong. This part of Elie’s mind has been worn down immensely so that Elie can no longer feel love or compassion for his father. Through Elie’s use of “free at last” he was demonstrating that Elie was no longer obstructed or weighed down by the presence of his father. Elie only views the death of his father as a relief.
Many people believe that the tragic death of multiple animals and Curley’s wife is solely Lennie’s fault; however that is not the case. Due to Lennie’s condition, though never specified, he had a limited ability to control himself in almost every situation. A psychological analysis done by researchers shows that, “many people with Mental Retardation experience the symptoms of delays in learning, difficulty remembering and difficulty with social skills” (Discussion of Mental Disability). Lennie suffers from a type of mental retardation causing his simple thoughts to be forgotten very easily, as well as his inability to hold a conversation, as he typically has George speak for him. In conclusion, we can gather that the mentality of Lennie’s guiltless soul cannot be blamed for his wrongdoings when he can’t control himself.
