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? His faith dissipates; therefore, the attachment to his beloved father vanishes. The simple rule, we cannot love and attach to someone without trust applies in every aspect of life. We detach from those who lose our trust, and Haddon demonstrates the relationship between trust and attachment throughout his novel.

Having to read about how a young childish boy falls in love with his best friend 's older sister really makes you think about how you were once this boys age, and once had that young love. Reading about Gabriel and his non returning love from his wife makes you hope that you never have to go through something like that yourself. James Joyce does a phenomenal job at explaining how the realization of both the boy and the old man don’t get the love they feel they deserve/ want. The ages of both protagonists might be different, but the overall feeling of losing someone or something is the same. The amount of time that the little boy did in waiting for the nerve to talk to the girl, the waiting for school to be over so he could see her,
In the beginning of the play, Benedick, enjoying the life of a bachelor, swore against marriage. However, Shakespeare creates a dilemma that forces Benedick to make an unchangeable decision between his longtime friend, Claudio, and the love of his life, Beatrice. Driven into a corner, Benedick chose to follow the will of Beatrice rather than Claudio, the exact opposite of what he would have done at the start of the play.

After very briefly trying to explain this plan to his brother he says, “I resigned him to his fate… and precipitated myself with it into the sea, without another moment 's hesitation.” (9). This just shows how little he cared about what might become of his brother. Even though he states that he had no time to go over and explain his plan, he then says how by the time the maelstrom let up he had only reached half the distance between where he jumped overboard and the bottom of the whirlpool. This would have given him more than enough time to explain his plan, and one would think might make him feel regretful for not taking the time to help him yet he doesn’t mention regret anywhere. It could be that his brothers were not victims to the maelstrom, but to the old fisherman
