The novel, Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepety has becomes one of the best book I have ever read. In know that can be a cliché statement to make but the novel is truly exquisite.

The novel Between Shades of Gray will soon be a classic all will get to know. The book begins, with the main character, Lina a young inspirited artist and her family getting arrest.

Unlike other trifle characters in the story, What if the protagonist, Guy Montag, never met Clarisse, Beatty, and Faber Ray Bradbury’s novel, Fahrenheit 451? Clarisse, Beatty, and Faber are the main reasons why the novel has depth. These characters are essential to the story because they make the story more interesting and suspenseful.

All readers long for an exciting story; no one wants to read a boring book. Readers want a book that captivates them, rocks them to the core, changes the way they view things. Without a doubt, this is something Ambrose Bierce accomplishes in “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” and “Chickamauga.” In modern times, most readers are used to plot twists and expected endings; however, Bierce was one of the first authors to incorporate these into literary works.

The book is a great tool used to open up hard racial conversations. Its historical accuracy makes it even more of a necessary read. Twain wrote Huck Finn to inform about racial issues through the eyes of an innocent child.

He/she went from something complicated to something more clear and clean. Also, he/she used more examples while he was talking about the rhetorical choices to make himself more understandable and persuasive. However, in his later draft, he still did not use an attention getter, which is something that for me was necessary because writers need to convince the readers that they need to read the essay. Secondly, the author kept the quotation in his conclusion, which as I previously said was not necessary because he already convinced his audience of what Jaschik was arguing about, who he was trying to persuade, and why he was trying to persuade. So, for me the author should still eliminate that

Faber was Montag 's only ally in the book. His purpose was to help Montag bring back the books and to assist Montag in understanding everything about reading, including how to sneak books around. If the protagonist, had no one aligned with him the book wouldn 't have been as interesting because Montag probably would continue to question the government, but not talk to anyone about how he feels unhappy with the law and this society, or do anything to make that change. Since Faber was included in the novel he supports Montag and lets him feel like he 's not alone. “‘--Where did you--?’ ‘I stole it’ Faber for the first time, raised his eyes and looked directly into Montag 's face ‘You 're brave.’” (Bradbury, 76) Faber tells Montag about his
