In particular, because the mystery is rendered nigh-on insignificant by its unlikely, and unrewarding, conclusion - it feels as if you are being strung along different avenues by multiple poorly conceived red herrings that all fail to amount to anything resembling meaningful. Which is a terrible shame, because its lackluster execution severely detracted from my enjoyment of Firewatch - to the point where I feel Firewatch would be a better experience without its
In The Catcher In The Rye this is another good example of bad reaction bad life. In the book Holden holds himself back by “not in the mood” For things like school, girls, and life.

Prufrock feel that if he approaches the woman, it would disturb the balance of the universe. This is shoeing that he thinks that everyone has a certain place in the universe and if he were to try to move up, that it would throw off the balance and create chaos.

He feels as if he is just the average guy, and an average guy has no purpose in being with the “belle of the ball’.
George cannot live his life and cannot do anything about it. When Hazel was talking to George she says, “I mean you don’t compete with anybody around here. You just sit around” (Vonnegut 2). This shows that George is just sitting around because he is limited to what he can do and cannot enjoy his life to the fullest. What else can he do but slowly except it and watch his life gradually come to an end.
This scarcity helps him devalue himself and feel he is ceasing to exist and with this starts using irregular sentence structures as seen in the quote “I was nothing but ash now” (Wiesel 54). Notice in this sentence the simplicity of all the words except the word nothing. He is adding emphasis on the word nothing because he himself believes that he has deterred into nothing. This helps readers understand how little life he has left and he is not in fact truly living but just surviving. At times he does not even want to be doing the simple task of breathing but just quit.
People weren’t able to empathize with his choices. Krakauer establishes this notion by inputting his own story and comparing himself to Chris. Peter Christian’s Criticism of McCandless is a provocative essay stating that Chris is a whack job, his story is completely pointless and not worth the time it takes to read.

I am no Sarah Good or Tituba, I am John Proctor!
Camus discovers that man can never effectively fight the absurd as displayed in this quote. “Rieux could only stand, unveiling, on the shore, empty-handed and sick at heart, unarmed and helpless yet again under the onset of the calamity. And thus, when the end came, the tears that blinded Rieux’s eyes were tears of impotence.” (269) However, Camus concludes that since man always searches for meaning, “they know now that if there is one thing one can always yearn for and sometimes attain, it is human love.”
“It was always hard for me to look on others” (3). All he feels he can do is run away from his problems. Crispin views himself as a week unimportant person which makes it hard for him to chance. Crispin prays to God for solutions, but is not able to able to find what he was looking for. “O Great and Giving Jesus, I, who have no name, who am nothing, who does not know what to do, who is alone in Thy world, I implore Thy blessed help, or I’m undone” (21).
“One has no right to refuse a gift or to refuse to attend the potlatch. To act in this way is to show that one is afraid to reciprocate. (41)” This quote resembles back to the clip because when Michael opens his gift he is clearly disappointed with what he had received by talking under his breath and leaving the room in a fast pace to avoid the person who gave it to him seeing that he was very disappointed about what he had received because it did not have any value to him.
