Reflection How to Read Literature like a Professor was definitely a ‘thought provoking read’ like the table at Barnes & Noble said. Although at first, I have to admit that Foster’s writing had bored me a bit, until I realized fact that I had subconsciously been thinking about what certain items symbolize and how they were important to the story. Overall, I enjoyed the work; Foster’s book is truly “A lively and entertaining guide to reading between the lines.” I liked the references Foster constantly gave to novels and movies, that helped me with visualizing what kind of ideas he was talking about, since I personally learn better through visualizations. Finding out about the classic fairy tales becoming modern ones, surprised me a bit;
Even though it is saddening to put the book down and finish reading, it was a fantastic book, and really catches the reader’s attention. The book is aimed for young adults readers, but will be enjoyed by anyone who likes sad, heartbreaking stories. It can make anyone and everyone cry. The use of figurative language really helped support the book and make it better. The figurative language drew out each scene of the book perfectly, Drawing out the picture helps the reader feel the emotions of the character and improve the books quality, and the multiple perspectives helped improve the book too.
The Book Thief was one of my favorite books that I have read so far, the author, Markus Zusak used imagery and used foreshadowing to prepare the reader for more important events.The author switches from the first person and third person point of view and how it gave you different perspectives.In the book, there's a sad tone and some humor in the book as well. The author uses flashbacks to inform the reader of previous events.The author used the first person because he wanted to switch from character to character and to make the story more interesting.He uses symbolism in the novel and he did that, it made the story more entertaining and unique. In the book the main character is Liesel, her brother died and she was sent to her new home with her foster parents in Germany.The story took place in World war ll and the Jewish were getting killed by the Nazi army.One day a Jewish man came and took shelter in her parent's basement.She needed to keep the Jewish man a secret or he would get killed.She found love for books and use them for comfort and she gets the name the book thief because she took books that she found from anywhere.The author uses diction to create tone.In the novel, there's a lot of imagery that set the mood for the novel and creates an
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.
This story made me feel anxious most of the time because I never knew what would come or what bad situation they would find themselves next. In all, I thought the book was very good because it's super descriptive, full of twists that keeps you on the edge of your seat, and just overall a nicely told adventure novel. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend or read another book from this
I enjoyed reading the book Silent to the Bone. I admire how the author, E.L. Konigsburg, started off the book in that the book did not start off at the very beginning of the story; instead, it started off after the main mystery of the book had already happened. I also commend the author’s use of foreshadowing throughout the entire book as to how the resolution would come about. I liked this because then I wouldn’t question every little thing throughout the entire story. Lastly, I enjoyed how the author made the characters come to life by telling the reader specific things about their personality as the book went on.
Every single symbol in the novel have meaning, and gives the reader extra information to interpret the book. The book “The scarlet Letter” has unique conflicts along with dramatic irony, and diverse symbols, but without the symbols the book wouldn't have the engaging story behind everything. Hester the novels main character shows a way to wear the scarlet letter “A” off the way she wants it to be worn. And though the book does end in a fairly happy ending, with all of the evil and sin in the novel there are some blissful
This book is trying to tell a sad story, but we can see the language is not that sad, or, a little bit funny. This also shows what the writer want to tell us— No matter how hard the life is, we should always keep an optimistic heart and smiling to the
Right now I'm reading The Book Thief and at first my brain had difficulty comprehending the very first pages, however, I'm now halfway through it. The book, so far, is great because of the fact that you can really indulge into the story that's unfolding. Once I commenced on reading the book again, it makes me question the people who say they hate reading. Or the people who prefer the movies to the books. Yes, some of the movie adaptations can be great, but the books present more definition that make you get stuck in the book's reality.
This story shows us that friendship and taking risks can help us live life to the fullest and that one person can change our lives forever. I liked this novel because it is unlike anything I have read before. It is well written, and it is definitely worth the
This book has been one of my favorites for many years because I enjoy the ideas that are represented in it. This book talks about difficult life-changing choices, the daily life living in a utopia, and romance, which are my favorite things to read about. This is only the first book in my favorite trilogy, the Matched trilogy, but I enjoy it the most out of the three. I have many favorite children’s books that I loved and still love. One of my absolute favorites is the My Weird School series by Dan Gutman.
Will becomes unafraid of death and his situation of the possibility of his parents fighting and divorce. I really enjoyed this book due to the suspense and action. The book keeps you on your toes because when think they are going to escape something happens and the rebels find them once again. I honestly could not put this book down and it was an easy read and would recommend this
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure and an edgy storyline. This book had my emotions in an uproar with it’s constant plot twists and turns. I would recommend this book to anyone who doesn’t mind losing a main character or two, and is okay with feeling drained after the chapters. The book makes you think what our world would be like if we could hear everyone’s thoughts and how we would have to adapt to the new
I do believe and think that the ending of this novel is novel is satisfactory, this is because the main character got the true understanding of life, she decided to decide to live according to the will of God, the society accepted her and she was loved by both her family and her boyfriend Eddie who she later got married to. This novel is very fun to read. I can recommend this book to anyone to read because it full with a lot of lesion and it help me realized the true meaning of life in a good
Novels, Fiction, Non-fiction, Myths, Legends, and Biographies are books that we should read to quicken us, to make us intelligent, open our understanding to life and being a true story or not we can compare it to our past lives and the future to come, hence I strongly agree with that books that we read should have an effect on our lives. “Jesus watches from the wall, but his face is cold as stone, and if he loves me, as she tells me, why do I feel so all alone?” Carrie Quotes."
