Throughout chapters 8 and 9, the author showed his bias towards Chris McCandless, which is an act of defiance to his position as an objective journalist, when he attempted to alter the readers’ negative point of view towards Chris by the introduction of different people who had similar experiences and characteristics as him and then making comparison. After reading the previous chapters, the readers have already made their own judgement on Chris, which are probably mostly negative. To address this issue, Krakauer initiates chapter 8 by introducing negative comments and mails not only about Chris but also to him, the author. These will serve as an argument that he will later attempt to disprove while at the same time, still informing the readers about what makes Chris special and unique.
As she elaborates on her idea of how women should be displayed she refers to a book called The Body Project, an intimate history of girls by Joan Jacobs Brumberg to gain credibility and build up her argument, that way the audience will realize that there is a problem that is occurring.

During most of the article he never mentions anything negative about Bisland. Generally Goodman stayed posited about Bisland and example in his last paragraph “but she deserves to be better remembered than she is – for the gorgeousness of her prose, of course, and the clear-sightedness of her perspective on the condition of women”. This definitely shows the reader that the author is biased an other example of this is “She was tall, with an elegant, almost imperious bearing that made her appear even taller; she had large dark eyes and luminous pale skin and spoke in a low, gentle voice”. Goodman definitely favors Bisland writing. This is definitely a weakness in the article which shows that the passages could not be trusted to it's entirety.

He soon became known as Hot Tamale Louis, and his legend still lives on in small-town Sheridan, which has now transformed into a flourishing Muslim community.

Schlink has used a variety of these literary techniques to appeal to the reader’s sympathy and allows the reader to understand the complexity and the way in which power and authority in certain situations can corrupt a
Her narrative focuses on the white women experience of captivity, and it aims to highlight the struggles and the humiliation the English captivate went through.
