Luckily it was at the crack of dawn and winter where you can see your breath and feel the brisk cold, thus the snake was sunbathing and didn’t pay attention to us. My brother and I did not see it, but my father saw it and told us that we almost stepped on it. It was scary thinking that if either one of us stepped on the snake that we wouldn’t want to know what would happen.

As they ate, Percy found Aunty M as a sweet, lonely old woman, but Annabeth and Grover thought different.

Another example of monstrosity in this novel is sexuality. Uncle Reginald describes sexuality as a “beast with two backs.” Another example of sexuality having monstrous qualities is the Momary dreams that Draper Doyle has.

Poe’s use of repetition demonstrates how he uses it to describe that the narrator is going mad when he “hears” the corpse of the old man’s heart beating.

This type of suspense also causes the reader to “have to” keep reading. A few pages later, the author creates suspense again when Sorrento says “sit down Wade.” Even though they have his home wired with explosives, he still logs out. The author again drops off and waits at least half a page until he makes the bomb go off. Once again, the reader has to think “was he bluffing or not” and makes the reader continue to read when suddenly, bang, there 's your
Usually, reporter will always record tragedy or someone in danger and doesn’t go help, it shows that they didn’t fulfill ethical responsibility. This author illustrates “ Rolf threw down his knapsack and the rest of his equipment and waded into the quagmire, commenting for his assistant 's microphone that it was cold and that one could begin to smell the stench of corpses.” This state that Rolf had fulfill his ethical responsibility because he threw down his equipment, hurriedly ran over to the girl and tried to save her.

Soon after I had landed on the island, I met a fair-haired boy named Ralph. There were creepers everywhere, making it almost impossible to walk without tripping on something. I remember looking into the distance and feeling a cold chill run down my spine, and the immense pain slowly take over me. The realization of this isolation hit me to the point of not being able to move or think.
