"I think that Chris McCandless was bright and ignorant at the same time. He had no common sense, and he had no business going to Alaska with his Romantic silliness. He made a lot of mistakes based on ignorance. I don’t admire him at all for his courage nor his noble ideas. Really, I think he was just plain crazy."
When I was little he used to tell me things and I always believed him because I mean he was my brother why would he want to lie and as the day would pass I would realize he lied to me again. I ended up opening my eyes and seeing how he hardly says the truth which made me loose my trust in him. I can never tell him anything without wondering whether he will go and make a lie out of it or hear something he has said and believed it was true. Which comes to my second main idea, trust can play a huge role also. Without trust there 's not much really.
His life is one full of narcissism and abuse. The hunger artist hates what he does, but due to the way he’s lived his life, he is so narcissistic that he can’t stop.

Timon and Pumbaa are the most distinctive characters to befriend Simba. The childhood romance Simba shared with Nala became a love that would last a lifetime. It also highlights the value of family bonds with a look into the true reality of them also. Simba’s loved for Mufasa can be identified throughout so many scenes, including the heartbreak where Simba lays crying with his life-less fathers body, whereas Scar provided nothing for his family except lies and deceit, and betrayal. Not only does it explain to us that it’s never too late to right your wrongs, but running from your past is not the answer.
The key had nothing to do with his father, Thomas Jr. thus ending his journey to elongate connection with him. When he has nowhere else to search, he finally confronts his mother about his adventure and to his shock, she was aware and was supporting him throughout the journey. Oskar is being honest with his mother and in return, she tells him the truth as well, which drastically loosens the tension of their relationship. After coming out with everything, Oskar tells his mother “It’s OK if you fall in love again.” (Pg.324) which implies that Oskar is finally experiencing closure after this long endeavour with the key. This closure is not met from solving the mystery nor did it resolve the relationship struggle, but it was instead resolved by the extinction of deceit surrounding him and his mother.
Christopher entrusts his father with all his heart until the day he finds out his father’s secret; from this day on Christopher no longer relies on his father. Why?

We detach from those who lose our trust, and Haddon demonstrates the relationship between trust and attachment throughout his novel.
As the book progresses, more and more characters end up dying, increasing fear with the remaining airmen after every death. The attitude of the officers counteract this, most of them being indifferent to the survival of themselves or their men, generally only caring about their reputation; Lieutenant Scheisskopf “cared deeply about winning parades” (Heller 71) and Colonel Cathcart “was overjoyed, for he was relieved of the embarrassing commitment to bomb Bologna without a blemish to the reputation for valor he had earned by volunteering his men to do it” (Heller 120). Heller characterizes officers as men who disregard the lives of others by using them as chess pieces in a game of chess they do not want to be a part of. One method that represents the commanders disregard for life is the raising of flying missions by the orders of Colonel Cathcart which acts as an impassable obstacle. Most of the officers in this story view Yossarian as crazy and paranoid but as the book progresses Yossarian is represented by the desperate survival of human nature while the commanders are painted as antagonists who needlessly push their men into dangerous situations.
The night that Richard Cory decided to end his life, was the night that was totally filled with loneliness. The author was trying to make sense to the readers.

Besides, they forgot the real essence of what they keep them alive: the social wholeness. It only suggests that there 's a huge barrier between reality and appearance.

There’s never a night that I don’t say good night and tell him that I miss him. My family is aware of how hard is death was for me. I can scream, cry, and shout WHY but in the end, a part of me is missing. I don 't know if I can ever truly accept that he is gone, I guess only time will tell. Or maybe just writing these few words is a way of me letting him go.
Westlake Lanes suffered after the loss of its first owner- Dane Sugar- suddenly passed away. Due to his spontaneous death, Dane Sugar was not able to train someone the functions of his business. Due to the fact Dane Sugar handled all the financials himself and brought in the majority of the costumers based on personal relationships, it left whoever took over his position in a tough spot. The board of Westlake Lanes automatically promoted the employee with the most experience working in the establishment to General Manager. The one key fact to remember is that Shirley Smith lacked any sort of management experience, which lead Westlake Lanes into a harder spot to come out of.
The isolated Victor is different in several ways including his manner, and the way he goes about his education, which is more focused and ultimately more obsessive.
