White Coats from the book Maximum Ride, are people who evilly experiment on children and hurt them repeatedly. To begin, the white coats in the story Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment, by James Patterson, are more evil than Poseidon in the epic, Odyssey by Homer because they are cruel.In Maximum Ride, the malicious white coats experimented on innocent kids, kept many in cages, and ended up killing many children. (J. Patterson) Although many people believe that Poseidon is the worst villain, one can also argue that the white coats are clearly more evil than Poseidon because they are cruel to little kids. To continue, the white coats are more evil than the god of the sea, Poseidon because they are inhumane. In the story, “Her lungs had started burning bad an hour ago; she hadn’t been able to feel her leg muscles for longer than that, but every time she stopped running , a statistic white coat - Reilly- zapped her with a stick thing… she could feel his eager anticipation- he wanted to hurt her.” (Patterson 52)While it is true that Poseidon tries to kill Odysseus, he stops once Odysseus reaches his home, it is also true that the white coats are inhumane because the white coat wanted to hurt her but had no reason proving that he is a pig.
Although several people in the book To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee symbolizes the mocking bird , I believe Boo Radley strongly emulates the symbol of the MockingBird. Boo Radley is misunderstood by society and seen as a monster or as a scary man, just as the mockingbird was. Although Boo was seen as a threat to society, he never hurt a soul, he shared things with the kids like soap figurines of them. Boo jumped to action when he heard the kids being mugged by mysterious man. Jem says it would be killing a Mockingbird if they persecuted Boo Radley.
Piggy is the ‘adult’ that brings the children fire. In Lord of the Flies, when Piggy’s specs are stolen, he is no longer useful, and the boys kill him.

In the novel Lord of the Flies, the conch represents law, order, power and Piggy. Being broken down slowly throughout the story, the Conch is fragile. Therefore, when it was time for the conch to protect Piggy, the conch did not have much importance civilization had completely broken down. All the boys on the island only listened to what Jack had to say. Jack made the boys believe his “rituals” are controlling all the beasts on the island.
The crack of the gun shook many souls who had read the book Of Mice And Men. In the book Of Mice And Men by John Steinbeck, George kills Lennie towards the end of the book and there are questions on whether it was wright or not for George to kill Lennie. George was right to kill Lennie because George would end it for him quickly, George would do it compassionately instead of Curley doing it in a bad way, and it would relieve Lennie of the pain and agony he has been through due to his illness. In almost every corner in the world, murder is illegal. However, in this particular situation, I believe that George 's decision to kill Lennie was acceptable due to the fact that it would have been easier for Lennie to die from George then having Curley

Many books possess an evil character, a villain, however the villain normally helps to improve the story and create a depth to the plot. In the work Of Mice and Men, the author John Steinbeck uses the character Curley to show that violence is never the answer. When introduced to anyone new, Curley has to threaten them, because he needs to showcase his role of leadership in the group. However if he showed them kindness instead, people wouldn’t see him as an angry person. For example, Candy warns George to distance himself from Curley, because he has a nasty temper and loves beating up big guys because he is not big.
Martin Niemoller’s First they Came for the Communists, Eve Bunting’s Terrible things and Elie Wiesel’s Night are three stories that share a similar theme. Being a bystander will cause a negative effect that will reflect back on to you. In Eve Bunting’s Terrible things, The rabbits chose not to stand up for the other animals being taken away by the terrible things, but chose to be unsympathetic and talk badly about them. “Those squirrels were greedy, Big Rabbit said. Always storing away things for themselves.
Mr. Tate says that only someone who could see in the dark could have really done anything. Since Boo is always inside, he is more accustomed to the dark. Also, when Atticus and Tate were arguing over how Ewell died, they were trying to protect Boo from attention. This brings up the the title “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Boo is the mockingbird and by accusing Boo of killing Bob, you are essentially killing him. The public would know about Boo, which is exactly what he doesn’t want.
To have someone attempt to kill you is a traumatic experience for anyone, and it just fired another shot at Scout. The final stroke was the appearance of Boo Radley. When Scout saw Boo, she realized he was not the dreadful monster rumor had painted him out to be. All of the petty cruelty Scout had watched is enough to break a grown man. All of her foul experiences, when pooled together, murdered the spark that made Scout a mockingbird.
