Mystery, suspense and horror are some categories that Roald Dahl’s “The Landlady” can be put into. Billy Weaver, a naive young businessman, was sent to Bath, England to take up his first job. During his stay in one of the city’s local bed and breakfasts, his lack of attentiveness caused him to be another one of the owner’s rather unfortunate tenants. Although he seemed to be very wise and mature for his age I was surprised to find that he became another subject to the landlady’s baleful practice. However, this has been pertinent to the central theme of this piece; always be aware of what’s happening.

The Adventure of Augie March is a book I can relate to on my levels. I enjoyed the way you portrayed your characters, Augie's search for his identity, gave visual images, but I was not keen of you putting Georgie into an institution and Rebecca in a nursing home. You portrayed your characters in ways that were very relatable to one's life. For instance, you made Augie a boy who was very soft hearted which often brought him trouble, stubborn due to the fact that he wanted to be his own person and not let people modify his decisions, and ambitious because no matter how numerous he failed he tried again; which I feel is comparable to a great deal of boys. Another example is Augie's father and mother whose stories within themselves is understandable.
Which can be seen at Lucy’s 7th birthday party. Although I believe that overall most children do not have much power in this society, I think Rita’s son Willy holds a lot of power. Maybe not so much in society but he definitely holds a lot of power in his family and at home. Due to his parents’ busy work lives, Willy does not have very many rules to follow and does not have many consequences for the little rules he does have. For example when Rita brings Sam to her house to prepare for court, Rita tells Willy multiple times that he has to go to bed now.
The men always thought they knew best and they would often laugh and scoff when the women would try to voice their opinions. In “The Yellow Wallpaper” the narrator tries to explain to her husband that the summer house they are living in is not helping her condition and that it needs to be renovated, but he does not take her seriously. Instead, John replied that “the place is doing you good and really, dear, I don’t care to renovate the house just for a three months’ rental”(Perkins 772). John was not listening to his wife at all and she wasn’t even getting better, but he told her she was. The men did not pay attention to any of their wives concerns and they would often let the woman know what they were saying was nonsense.

In Washington D.C. they said they’ll be counting animal abuse as a “felony.”4 The FBI isn 't just focusing on household pets their always helping with farm animals like pigs, lambs, goats, horses, cows, chickens and more livestock. There were farmers who stomped chickens killing them to death and a guy burning a live cat to die! A man’s mission is to “collect as many data as possible to enforce the law to report the statistics.”5 I agree with him so that humans will realize that there are heartless individuals that keep killing, sexually abusing, torturing, mutilating

His wife escaped, so the farmer and his people chase her then locked her in his house. The farmer was uneducated so he probably didn't know what his wife really want.
