Jay Gatsby changed the most as a character because He started the novel as a rich and extravagant man with a mysterious background, but it was revealed that he didn 't start his life this way, James Gatz was a seventeen-year-old fisherman on Lake Superior who had big dreams that he thought he never could make a reality.

Personal Reactions: I liked how Lev’s character was developed throughout the story. Lev’s main focus in the beginning of the book is to escape from his “kidnappers” and be tithed like his parents wanted, but he is so focused on obeying his parents that he doesn’t notice the people who he thinks kidnapped him are trying to save him from being unwound. As the story progresses it’s obvious Lev no longer feels the same way, this is shown on page 226 when Shusterman states, “Once he landed in the safe-house network, he quickly made it known that he was not a guy to be trifled with. He didn’t tell them he was a tithe.
Freedom in Huck Finn was when Huck’s father (Pap) took Huck away in a cave and he had to stay there, while his father was out drinking. When his father came back he would be drunk and just mean, one day Huck escaped and didn’t take anything with him. He ran into the woods, he felt free from people controlling him, he could’ve went to the widow but he didn’t like it there either. Huck was a very smart boy, he knew what he wanted to do with his life he just needed to get away from the past and people who bring him down. Freedom means the world to Huck, he gets to pretty much whatever he wants without getting cussed at or corrected.
