Inconclusive endings can allow the reader to expand their mind beyond the story, and imagine their own ending. The Poisonwood Bible, written by Barbara Kingsolver, is a novel following a missionary family in the Congo, and each chapter is written from a different member of the family’s perspective. The ending provides the reader with multiple ways to interpret the ending. One ending is more satisfactory than the other because everything comes full circle. One of Orleana’s children, Ruth May, dies tragically in Africa after surviving a terrible illness.
In Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods, the characters travel to a similar jungle due to a plague, which coincidentally affects Gregor’s mom, that is sweeping their land.. The endings of the books are alike with both having a twist in who really is the bad guy. Allende has Dr. Torres try to kill the Indians through a vaccination, while Collins revealed that humans purposefully created the plague as a way to rid of the giant rats. In addition, some themes are present within both novels. They include a need for trust between groups, whether it is peoples or species, when it came to fighting the antagonists.
The use of diegetic and non-diegetic sound helped to express or set the mood within the scene. As Harry and Marv chase Kevin the song, “The Attack on the House” by John Williams is playing, this is a non-diegetic sound. This song fits chase scene because it is fast and suspenseful. The music builds up moments later as Kevin picks up the tarantula and places it on Marv’s face, creating anticipation and suddenly pauses. The spider put on Marv’s head causes him to shriek like a little girl, a diegetic sound.
There’s a number of scents present in just the few chapters we have read, including lilac, Zameen’s perfume, and rotting flesh. Lee brought to attention that smell is the most evocative of senses, so it would make sense in a novel riddled with haunting memories that smell would so often be present. Then, Jeremy brought up that maybe smell presents itself as the most important sense because the characters have all been numbed by the physical spectacle of violence, which we all agreed seemed a great explanation for its
She was a mother to seven kids and was married to her husband Calvin Stowe. Calvin and Harriet’s sixth child, Charlie, became sick with a deadly disease at a very young age.

This cross referencing between the bible and Lady Macbeths lines assists our understanding of her character as it shows us the extent which she is prepared to embrace evil just as she later calls on the spirits directly to fill her with evil. Nonetheless, in the Bible it is said that the serpent caused Adam and Eve to commit the first original sin, so according to Lady Macbeth killing Duncan in a malicious, heartless act of regicide is an evil act compatible to the world’s first ever act of evil.
Theo immediately stood up to save the other and instead they took him. “You are the chief now Mamere.” Abital told Mamere. When they finally arrived to the camp, they stayed there for 13 years.

In the book Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, Mildred D. Taylor uses similes that have significance to the novel. Simile A is significant because it gives us a description and a thought of of how the road looked. It also could tell readers why maybe the Logans children were not able to see the bus coming in the morning. They compare the road to a lazy red serpent because serpents are long and curved. They are also snakes, and snakes usually send negative feelings to people because they are venomous and can kill you.
Knowing this can give you an appreciation of how difficult spider control can be. The following are three reasons you should consider calling a professional exterminator for a spider problem.
