Although many did see the event as that, other sources appealing to rhetoric saw it the complete opposite. These authors shared a common standpoint of the moon landing calling it insignificant and America wasting money on this space development event when America could have used it on other substantial and important issues. Herblock’s Transported features a man on the moon, in this drawing cartoon the man is fixated on a television and it is dark and gloomy beneath him which is Earth. On Earth, it has words on clouds, “war”, “poverty”, and “prejudice.” Herblock’s intentions in this was to show those glorifying the Apollo 11 event, first humans on the moon, do not notice what goes around the world with real issues, such as war and poverty. Herblock makes a perfect attempt on unmasking the negative and poor side of a worldwide victory and success, this proves those coming together (around the world) for a worldwide “phenomenon” but when bigger issues shown in his cartoon, examples of more significant things than the moon landing, in which many are unaware of the issues.

Back again! For she is not the true one that sits by thy side”.
When I first read the story, it was very slow. The way it started in the first chapter did not really catch my attention, and it is also because I am not into war stories. Usually when I read books, it would immediately catch my attention, in which this book has not. Another key factor that I did not like about this book is that there should be more fighting scenes, or more experiences. A good fight scene between the soldiers and the Vietnam people would have catched all of our attention, because everyone likes a good fighting description.
When the father says, “she cannot possibly be the bride” and the step-mother says, “oh, no, she is much too dirty, she cannot show herself” it shows how cold-hearted and unaccepting of their love they are (Hunt).

I thought the play was very good and the actors were amazing, I felt that they followed the script well and made good use of the little room that they had in the studio theatre. There were only a few things that I did not like about the play, one of them being part of Alias’ costume. Everyone else’s costume I thought all blended nicely together and fit the time period but Alias’ purple dress and her 6 inch heels stood out so much. Her costume was so outrageous, I felt that it took away from the scenes that she was in while wearing it because it was so distracting and difference from everything else going on. Her shoes especially were way too contemporary to fit with everything else, but her other costume, a white dress with a green robe, blended really well and fit the time period.
This story made me feel anxious most of the time because I never knew what would come or what bad situation they would find themselves next. In all, I thought the book was very good because it's super descriptive, full of twists that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and just overall a nicely told adventure novel. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend or read another book from this
Although no movie based on a book is fully satisfactory, it is always amusing to watch the storyline in a different light. Jenn Doll, from The Atlantic, explains that “Because a criticism of how it should have been -- and almost always plays out better in our minds -- is in some ways part of the fun of seeing the movie made from a book we love” (Doll). It is an exciting experience to anticipate what we know already in our minds, to be projected into the real world. Overall, the book is a thrilling read, the movie is a thrilling visual, but nothing would ever beat the books complexity of feelings and
Cinderella is one of the most popular fairytales of our time because it is a beloved rags-to-riches story that can be inspiring to children. However, it gives them this idea that you must be dependent on others to grant you the things that you want in order to have a happy life. Ellen Jackson wrote a modern version of the fairytale by creating Cinder Edna to show that you don’t have to depend on a fairy godmother or marry a prince to live happily ever after. Therefore, the author displays many differences between them which gives a new and different idea to readers that having a good, strong character will get you through anything in life. The only similarity that Cinder Edna & Cinderella share is that they both live with a wicked step family and are forced to work as servants for them.
And the mirror that people had said that SCIENTISTS placed on the moon even though it was not a mirror it was a piece of metal that was placed a 19 degree angle the laser that scientists placed to reflect off of the moon to be sent back to earth to prove we had went to the moon. If we had gone to the moon, we would have brought metal to the moon to where it becomes uncontrollably then why did the metal not melt? And the other countries were tracking them, who’s to say that we didn’t somehow jam the signal or re-route the power? Later on in the moon launch, the U.S was making steady progress, The ship was shown rotating in space! How was the ship rotating in space if there is no air in space?
This is a terrible book. I almost want to say it doesn 't have any redeeming qualities, but then I recall I was once in love with the idea of The Crown 's Game. It should’ve stayed as an idea. When I first heard the prose I instinctively thought this sounds brilliant. It could work for me.
