Lastly, the conflicts in the story demonstrate the struggles and trials Dooley goes through, in an attempt to create a new beginning. The first conflict is faced by Dooley at the very starting of the novel, when he gets questioned for the death of Mark Everley. For example, the author narrates, “The homicide cop asked Dooley if he knew the dead kid. Dooley hesitated again. He didn’t like the way the homicide kept his eyes on him and never one looked away, like he thought that if he did, he might miss the one thing that would let him nail Dooley” (McClintock 11).
Book Journal Four Prompt - What is happening with the plot of your story? Has the author use foreshadowing to so you were able to predict the next events or have you been surprised? The plot of the story is getting crazier and crazier as the book goes on, or maybe that is just the characters (except Hans) getting crazier. Either way it is becoming plain weird.

The first reason the setting was better in “Horton Halfpot” was because it is more broughd than ‘’the Kidnappers”. In the book, there are a lot of yards outside, a huge garden, n, and a pond. This setting was the main setting in the book and caught my attention. Another setting trait it had was it was calm. It was always quiet, no one was around and there are always birds chirping.
Gangs would often fight each other to see which gang was more superior . In the novel the gangs had a final showdown the "rumble " . Both gangs meet at the park, which was the decided Location . " we would Settle this Soc - Greaser thing once and for all " (Hilton 117) . The fight between the Greaser and Soc( east and west side ) was a battle between the social classes .
I have watched both the book and movie of The Call of the Wild. Here is a article saying the similarities and differences between them. There will be certain things from the book, movie, and some of both. In the book, Manuel sells Buck at the very beginning of the book.
These trips would take weeks and months. The book Call Of the Wild tells the story of Buck, a muscular dog stolen from his home in Santa Clara Valley, California and sold as a sled dog in Canada’s Yukon territory during the gold rush of the 1890s. Buck shows a growth mindset and adaptability many times throughout the book Call of the Wild; he shows it when he learns to steal and not starve, he learns how to change his body to survive, and learns to complete loyalty.
Being different can be the best talent and gift in the world. It makes one special and it lets one be the amazing person there ment to be. In the fictional novel The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart it shows the true importance of being yourself and embracing your talents. She shows this using dialogue, narrative hook, and conflict.
In the novel of the Call of the Wild, Buck tried to adapt to his new and difficult life. He was forced to help the men find gold; he experienced a big transformation in him. At the end, he transformed into a new and different dog. Buck went through physical, mental and environmental changes. In my essay, I talked about how Buck was like at the beginning, what he changed into, and how he was forced to adapt his new environment, and underwent these changes.
The difference in climates and environment creates different obstacles and things that have to be learned in order to survive in the wild(Napierkowski). Besides just the setting he also had to face the wild. A theme of the story is civilization vs. the wild. His life was changed over a period of time. The title itself says “The Call of the Wild”.
Lastly, “A stick sharpened at both ends,” conveyed to the children the danger of each other and Roger, the wielder of the stick, used this symbol of destruction to lead them on a hunt to kill the protagonist Ralph. The symbols with the greatest influence and power were mostly derived from a negative connotation. William Golding used both power and symbolism to create an Allegory novel that gives insight on how they have a deadly end result. The washed up Conch and Sow’s head had many differences, the most simplistic being that the head was evil, containing fear, while the Conch wielded order and civility. The plot of this novel shifts around power and what the result is of having it fall into the wrong hands.
