The book “Flight,” by Sherman Alexie displays the cruelty of the world and how it affects the normality of life. Fueled by the world, life is full of struggles in which everyone from every walk of life is affected. In order to portray the effects of its cruelty, the book depicts the perspective of an orphan, Michael, that faces the challenges of life. Due to the abandonment of his father and the loss of his mother, Michael grew out his pain and anger towards society. For instance, he says, “ I know the world is still a cold and cruel place. I know that people will always go to war against each other. I know that children will always betray each other.” (pg.180)
