In this case, her convenience is more important than the truth. Daisy is a victim of denying what is below the surface. This is seen in many different aspects throughout the novel. By approaching reality in a deeper way, everything will automatically become more complicated in countless ways. Even as readers, we do not know everything there is to know, especially when dealing with Jay Gatsby, but what we do know still manages to be contradicted by the complicated character of Daisy.
The narrator kills Doodle indirectly, as a consequence of the lack of knowledge he has about Doodle’s medical issues, and as said before, being enveloped in pride. After Doodle dies alone in the storm, the reader grasps the “true love” the narrator had for him, which he never expressed toward his younger brother. In the closing paragraph, the narrator reveals his “true love” that was hidden inside him, “ I began to weep, and the tear-blurred vision in red before me looked very familiar. ‘Doodle!’ I screamed above the pounding storm and threw my body to the earth above his. For a long long time, it seemed forever, I lay there crying, sheltering my fallen scarlet ibis from the heresy of rain” (604).
One way Fitzgerald demonstrates appearance versus reality is through his characterization of Tom and Daisy Buchanan. Fitzgerald characterizes them as wealthy aristocrats who live in East Egg. They are considered as the old money and due to his status, Tom is well known around East Egg. When Nick first visits Tom in East Egg he states that, “their house was even more elaborate than I expected, a cheerful red-and-white Georgian Colonial mansion, overlooking the bay”
The story begins with a boy whose faith is unshakable and a father whose emotions are untouchable, but by the end, we see both of those fade away. Wiesel reveals the truth that when surrounded by many horrific events, it can lead to one 's loss of religious faith.

Travis Bradberry once stated, “Everyone knows that life isn't fair. Saying it's not fair suggests that you think life is supposed to be fair, which makes you look immature and naive.” Things don’t always go the way people want them to and sometimes they do not want to accept that. The characters in William Goldman’s novel, The Princess Bride, face difficult trials, where they nearly die in most of them. Additionally, none of the characters get a happy ending. Goldman develops the theme, “life isn’t fair” by providing details from his own life, explaining the complicated relationship between the characters Westley and Buttercup, and describing the situations the characters were in to save Princess Buttercup.
The United States of America is a big, powerful and wealthy country in the world. The division of class, individuality, religion, and race are but a few of the embellishments within the society.

The Dream consists of a seemingly simple theory; success.
What if someone unexpected changed your way of thinking, permanently? What if God chose to send someone into your life to abolish you superficial thoughts? In both the stories “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, by Flannery O’Connor, and “Cathedral”, by Raymond Carver, the authors create main characters who lack faith and think superficially about life. However, in both stories, the authors send unexpected characters to act like mediums, for their job is to be the connection of the main character’s initial position in faith and their final position, revealed at the end of both stories. Even though the stories have a different plot and involve diverse kinds of characters, the final message and moral is the same.

In Fahrenheit 451, information is restricted, and people are given so many useless “‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely ‘brilliant’ with information”(pg 58). So they’ll be ‘happy’, but it is a fake happiness. Because of this people think they are happy, but commit suicide because they are not. There are also a small few who still read books, but they must keep it a secret, or the books

Your perspective is reality, true or not it is. However, when something happens and you your perspective is lost is it true that you lose your sense of reality? Or perhaps you don 't lose reality but rather gain perspective, which can be confusing in a whole other light. Author Tim O’Brien, through his narrative, The Things They Carried, emphasises the idea the perhaps there is no way to lose perspective; instead you are constantly gaining it causes more confusion while you 're still writing your story. But perhaps when you take a step back after you’ve made it through the mess the pieces (the memorable moments good and bad) seem to fall into place creating a glance “across the surface of my [your] history” (233).
I never knew till long later why he didn’t like that. But I know now” (70). Crooks now knows what he failed to realize as an innocent child: whites and blacks could not mix in his society.
