Ellis did an impressive job at balancing the book and not showing bias towards any of the prominent figures. Although the book provides a superb representation of the forefathers in each chapter, some chapters are more effective than others. The book also tends to wander off and get too in-depth in some area so it becomes a bit wearisome. During some areas the narration fails to sustain my attention and spark my interest. Simultaneously, I would not say that it’s dull or boring, as it gives an considerable amount of information and I learned a lot from it.
The story puts Roger in a tough situation to show that men mean well, but need a bit of help from women if they are ever to realize they are in a relationship. This is the main theme of Dave Barry’s story, which he shows through the use of age old humor techniques- misunderstanding, and stereotypes. It is not hard to connect with Roger and Elaine right from the start, thanks to Barry’s humorous personality that he writes with, and the universal situation he sets the story in. Barry’s words will stick with the reader, especially these wise words he imparts from the beginning; that guy are easy to have a fulfilling relationship with, provided that the guy is a Labrador retriever, and not a real
93-95). Just in this quote you can tell that he came up with that plan on the spot. This plan is very organized. It may not have worked out but that was more of the other character’s faults. This skill is very helpful for counselors of any kind.

It made for a good story but if in real life circumstances I wouldn't agree with the act of unwinding. I think the author did a good job with making it realistic but also drama filled. The more you read this story the more you got hooked to it. I would recommend this book to anyone because it makes everyone think about everything. Just the thought of being shipped off to be dismantled scares anyone.
In the Echo Check, Patients shared that they found the blog and interview discussions to be therapeutic, allowing them to open up and address their true feelings about their condition, including embarrassment and frustration I liked discussing my feelings on the blog tree. It was an interesting way of forcing myself to be expressive about the disease.- Mason It is nice to be at the point to be able to talk about it.- Alexa I have been thinking about the whole session and being able to talk about it and express my feelings actually felt like therapy to me.
The author of the novel was able to strongly develop the personality of the protagonist. Although Christopher is extremely intelligent, he still has many quirks which made him relatable to readers. Mark Haddon used indirect characterization fairly well, which made it easier to understand the feelings of different characters. You can easily become emotionally attached to the characters that were created in the story. The first day Christopher spends with his mother– Judy, was quickly filled with disappointment.

McMann made this condition useful in her novel. It’s great knowing that a disorder can be a life saver rather than being looked down upon. I also think the introduction of OCD in Kendall Fletcher showed us that we all have characteristics as human beings. We are all different. Sometimes the things that people perceive as flaws are still beautiful; and that the unique qualities that each of us possess can teach us something that we never knew before.
With the title like “Shitty First Drafts” I knew I would like this essay and I was right. Anne Lamott makes this easy to read without leaving me with any questions. The humorous tone that Lamott uses keeps you interested while she’s giving your great writing advice. This was a great read for me as I am currently struggling with writing some articles for another project.
Hi Latasha, I agree with how you described that Stevenson’s work enables him to see both sides. I liked the way you put it, that Stevenson “understands how the system actually works and how it is supposed to work.” I wish that those two concepts would always synonymous, but I know that is not always the case. I also agree that he has more empathy for his clients.
Oppositely, others have had positive experiences, which has made their work life easier. Co-workers were open and friendly to their changes and offered helpful feedback to maintain an easy lifestyle while transitioning. There was no judgement which made them feel accepted and at ease. This study connects to Schilts book because it shows how transgender inequality is a huge issue. Admitting that this does not look at trans women vs. trans men, it does represent everyone as a whole.
She talks about how self pity is a natural part of the human experience of grieving, and she convinces the reader of this too. She shows the reader that this is how she copes. As a reader, or at least for me, I understand and appreciate this. This book is kind of a downer, and it can be rather technical at times, but it remains a page turner because of the great flow and smooth stories. Also, the technicality of this piece rings true to the person that you learn Didion is.
