Money can cause many problems in the our lives and relationships, such as isolation and depression. Also, people tend to look more of what they, themselves, are able to get out of people instead of looking at people for who they are. In John Steinbeck’s three novels Of Mice and Men, Tortilla Flat, and In Dubious Battle , he addresses the problems that money can create. This is what, in the end, causes most of the problems for the different characters. Of Mice and Men is about two men who look for jobs after the Great Depression. Tortilla Flat is about how five men function in a small town. In Dubious Battle is about two men who helped a camp of pickers start a strike to raise their pay. Steinbeck illustrates the power of money to isolate and depress the characters, and, in doing this, calls attention to the negative consequences of money in the reader’s life.
David Cordingly's “Under the Black Flag: The Romance and the Reality of Life Among the Pirates” is an extraordinary book, although sometimes confusing. Yet it is of no surprise that Cordingly writes his book with enthusiasm and great interest, Cordingly is clearly a sophisticated expert in pirate stories and legends. What makes Cordingly’s book so interesting and original is that he explores the facts and details about pirate history while at the same time exposing the myths and romanticized lies. The book itself investigates the reality of piracy versus the fictional images of pirates and their unimaginable portrayal in books and movies. Therefore the purpose of this assignment will be for me to give a detailed evaluation of David Cordingly's

The book under review is a magical adventure of a thirteen-year-old boy, Theo Decker, after he lost his mother in a bomb attack. The Goldfinch is compared to a “a haunted odyssey through present-day America” and it conveys the “enthralling power” of art to human beings. With the theme of artistic beauty, profound but delicate relationships and individual destiny, the Goldfinch is the deepest mystery of “loss and obsession”, survival and self-redemption. Attractively vivid characters, beautiful language and slow tempo are employed instead of the prevalent compact story plot, for the sake of creating a “thrilling suspense”. As a result of “endlessly propulsive plot”, the boy’s journey is mainly divided into five episodes, namely, the bomb accident, life with the Barbours, moving to Las Vages, reunion with Hobie and criminal activities in Amsterdam. The first part of the book (Part 1-2) reveals the helplessness and loneliness of a near-orphan adolescent, while the second half (Part 3-5) explores his metamorphosis.
