When Holden felt really alone, he gave Sally a buzz and they went on a date. He said “I didn't much want to see it, but I knew old Sally, the queen of the phonies, would start drooling all over the place when I told her I had tickets for that, because the Lunts were in it and all.” (116, Sallinger) for Sally. For Holden “being phony” is really poor thing. If he uses word “phony” for his date, it means he really doesn’t like her and doesn’t want to go on a date with her. He just wanted to use her for forget his loneliness.

However, Stanley’s sweet words and frank actions persuade Stella to forgive him, go back home, and spend the night with him. On the one hand, Blanche cannot understand why Stella decides to tolerate Stanley’s violent behaviors.

In book Americanah, Adichie is showing the real truth of poor peoples lives, how easier it is to get to the top by having privilege at the beginning and how racism is all-around the world.
In her insightful speech on the TED television series, Chimamanda Adichie argues that single stories of specific races or regions usually produce misconceptions of their true natures. Adichie, born and raised in colonial Nigeria, uses previous life experiences to support her claims relating to false stereotypes, most obviously throughout her childhood and her 1st visit to the USA. Living underneath a colonial atmosphere, Adichie was unendingly exposed to foreign ways that of life; she had a good education and skim children’s books regarding men drinking beverage, and was schooled to be appreciative for the opportunities she was precocious. However, not till later in her life did Adichie notice that these influences were incomplete and untrue representations of Western life. This helps to demonstrate “how plastic and vulnerable we tend to ar within the face of a story, significantly as kids,” and the way we will not actually apprehend the reality till it 's been concretely discovered to North American country.
Before Isabel leaves, she tells him that she realizes that finding a suitable flat in new York is not easy, and Mrs. March adds that she will not be difficult anymore when it comes to apartments (Howells 77). However, after she said that, she gives him an endless list of demands concerning the apartment that are superficial, such as a pleasant janitor and a flat below the third floor. The fact that the narrator mentions this entire list of demands can be proof that the narrator mocks this whole situation because she does not stay true to her word to not be demanding, especially after her experience with poverty. Furthermore, Michelle Kohler agrees that the narrator is inconsistent. Sometimes, he is almost objective and remains in the background, but a few pages later he can be ironic towards the city, the advertisements and the Marches (197).

One of her readers decided to tactfully remind her in the comments section, “Did you really think your readers wanted to know about your personal life at all?” She uses a more emotionally loaded fallacy, bandwagon appeal, to force her audience into seeing her side.
