When I first read the story, it was very slow. The way it started in the first chapter did not really catch my attention, and it is also because I am not into war stories. Usually when I read books, it would immediately catch my attention, in which this book has not. Another key factor that I did not like about this book is that there should be more fighting scenes, or more experiences. A good fight scene between the soldiers and the Vietnam people would have catched all of our attention, because everyone likes a good fighting description.

The writing style Roth likes to use involves lots of positivity, possibly even too much. Some critics claim that the topics could even be described as “common sense”. Critic Bashira said, “If you take to reading self-development books, a lot of his concepts--you'll realize--are hardly new.” Bashira does touch and expose Roth’s writing in a positive matter however, giving Roth the true credibility he deserves as a creative author.

The author failed with the plot. I felt like it was all over the place. It was little stories in one big story of Calpurnia’s life. This is what I would have changed. I would put more of a storyline in it and I would have made it a more interesting
I think my arguments essay was more like a persuasive essay and that is why I did not enjoy writing this essay. On the other hand, I did enjoyed writing a critical essay for “We are Seven” by William Wordsworth. I loved to read this poem because it was easy to understand .It was cool when Mr. Molina a Karen read out loud this poem, maybe that is why I loved this story because I was able to imagine them as the characters from the poem. How would you revise your essays if you had more time?

Jeykll is then addicted to it. “-- He now begs them to search with the most sedulous care, and should any of the same quality be left, to foward it to him at once. Expense is no consideration.
I think the most valuable book for me was The Pigman by Paul Zindel In ELA class. Even though it was hard for me to understand, but I still enjoyed it. This book helped me to understand how to use foreshadowing. Foreshadowing can make the story more suspenseful.

Also, all of Braswell 's characters, both the old and the new, had one major flaw: lack of characterization. It 's as if Braswell expected the reader to use and be satisfied with prior knowledge. I was not satisfied. I wanted her to mold each character into her own and make them something new and refreshing to read about.
