While Helen assists Jane in correcting her pessimism and negative attitude, she does not do so in a harmful manner but, instead, encourages Jane, telling her that she is “too impulsive, too vehement” and that there is so much more to the world than meets the eye (99). We can always learn and grow by utilizing advice from others, so why not accept it from those closest to you? Being around Helen makes Jane feel so comfortable and relaxed when she talks, which is indicative of a good friendship and allows Jane to realize that perhaps she needs to be more like her friend. (100). Additionally, the genuine concern Jane feels for her friend when she grows ill is a sign of just how much she has grown from past experiences, and even her time with Helen.
Words were present throughout that time in history, and have left an opaque imprint of a scar that will remain for the rest of everyone’s lives, but they have also been the source of kindness and thankfulness that helped some people succeed despite the treachery. In this novel, Liesel is able to use the opposing qualities of words to her advantage and learn the truth of the world. She is initially unable to comprehend the true meaning of words, but at the end of the novel, she fully understands the true significance of words and their impacts. Therefore, the paradox of being ugly and beautiful simultaneously can be applied to Liesel Meminger and her divergent
She wanted to believe that her hardships were only temporary, so she looked to story book characters as her friends and a refuge from reality. She is very good at vivid description and dialogue as well as her prose- using ordinary language without meter and making it sound beautiful. It creates a mental image in the mind of the reader. She also describes things abnormally, which makes the reader think of whatever is being discussed in a different light. It is very colorful
Also she makes the characters do things that I don't a imagine happening with the story but she makes them fit in anyway. I rate this book a 9.5/10 because the author used great character description and good description but I felt like there was something missing in the story but I don't know what it was or how to explain. I felt like the book had everything that a good book need and all the things that I like in the book. All in all the book was a great book, it had great description and I hope that you read it and think the same thoughts as I did. Read Vanished, by Sheela Chari today.
The book kept me guessing until the very end of the story. The main characters are easy to relate to, and are very likeable. Lauren Oliver’s style in the book is casual, yet it keeps the reader greatly intrigued. Oliver is able to paint a very vivid picture of each event in the story, that makes the reader feel as if they are right there, participating in the challenges. The theme of desire reoccurs in the story, as the characters all desire something throughout the game.
The imagery in this novel is what immediately hooked me into the story, I thoroughly enjoyed the detailed descriptions of each character, which was a pleasant surprise after our last reading, which failed miserably to do the same. The detailed descriptions are extremely beneficial to the storyline because it helps move the plot along while also further enticing the reader in the process. Also, I quickly noticed that unlike any of our other readings, the main female characters are permitted to have vices. The women are allowed to be promiscous and to drink alcohol. We see this immediately through the unrefined and "un-ladylike” behavior of Carmen and Vivian.
That was a nice touch, and it made the characters feel more real. The best part of the story in my opinion was the part where she told Derek she was pregnant in the cafe. It was really drawn out, which simulated how time would move more slowly in real life if you were telling someone something like that. It would be really nerve-wracking. Sarah’s character Marie was very genuine.
Anne Frank A Light in the Dark Anne Frank once said, “I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.” Many people know that Anne Frank was an extraordinary diarist, truly an optimist, and a spunky, energetic girl, but did they know that she was wise beyond her years? She changed the world by blessing humanity with her extraordinary literature skills and imagination. She showed that even in horrible times, people could make the most out of it, and not wallow in their misery. She left a legacy as the light in the dark. Earlier times leading up to the arrest of Anne Frank and her Annex family were full of interesting events and emotion.
As well, Shirley uses themes in the hole story to not forget the main topic in different sections, and to understand how important the values and the manners are. My opinion of “The Lottery” is that sometimes the writer can express herself with the readers using different literary devices on the story, and this helps to understand the main purpose of the story. The story was very entertaining and it has a great conclusion because we never expected that kind of end. She also used a lot of different characters to demonstrate the different perspectives that each part of the
Despite what my mom has been through, she acknowledges that things can be worse and even though it may be very difficult for her to get through the day at times, she still finds the strength to do so. This interview was just as much for her as it was for me. One role was not more significant than the other; we both played key parts in this experience. This interview was about listening and more importantly, understanding. To find myself in someone else’s story is a beautiful thing and I am appreciative of this experience for allowing that to happen.
