All in all, I prefered the book better. This is because I truly loved Death’s idiosyncratic comments and informative narration in the book. Even though the movie was very literally visual, I had an easier time imagining the book and understanding it. I really enjoyed reading Max’s books and didn’t have this pleasureful opportunity in the movie. I enjoyed the sensory details and Zusak’s writing style.

The Warren-Barnhart Debate In a world where moral value is very much based on pleasure, Dr. Warren takes a stand in order to recalibrate the mind of many. Reading books is always an enlightening experience whether it is a positive or a negative one. However, though many can glean heaps of information and knowledge from a book, reading a debate is far more intriguing. When a debate is recorded in manuscript form, the reader is able to sit at the feet of two opposing sides. This reduces the amount of “straw-man arguments” and allows for the superior thoughts to be exposed.
Professional readers are people who analyze the book. The status seekers read only what is popular in order to be accepted by a group of people. These readers are “entirely dominated by fashion”, and will not like a book if the dedications start with a “to” instead of “for”. Lewis explains that the only literary experience a reader may have is when they are young and reading late in bed, underneath the sheets. The devotees of culture are a group of readers who read as well as visit art galleries, and concert rooms in order to improve themselves.
People often let books become an essential part of their lives. They let books ease their feelings when they feel upset, or maybe they want a self-help book, so they turn to books on how to live a happier lifestyle or how to live a healthier life. I often turn to books that make me feel like I am in a different country. I often wonder where did my love for books come from? Has reading really impacted my life?
I believe the book can do a lot of good but only towards the right audience. I think that someone who has a better grasp on english and can track the plot would benefit from reading the book. In conclusion In His Steps makes a positive impact on the target audience but as for me, was too convoluted to be able to send a
Throughout our educational careers reading literary fiction has been one of the most important aspects of our learning experience and most students would agree; it’s definitely not a waste of time. In Jordan Bates’s article, “Three Cognitive Benefits of Reading Fiction,” he refutes Noel Gallagher's comment that reading literary fiction, in summary, is a lost cause. Bates goes into detail about how reading literary fiction improves many aspects of life including social perception, emotional intelligence, empathy, and more at ease with ambiguity. He’s able to convince his reader of this by successfully using three rhetorical appeals throughout his argument. Even though Jordan Bates uses ethos as his strongest appeal by his knowledge of reading literary fiction and his use of reputable sources to assure his readers of the
Hemingway described the authenticity found in novels as follows: "All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they really happened and after you are finished reading one you feel that it all happened to you and after which it all belongs to you." This experience is one that readers still desire, even in the Information Age. However, to meet the particular expectations of readers in our time, the modes of constructing verisimilitude in fiction may be undergoing some changes. It's no surprise, then, that documentary fiction is particularly appealing to readers in the Information Age. Arguably, today's readers are more adept at accessing, synthesizing, and utilizing information than perhaps at any other point in history.
Although English isn’t my first language, I have obviously failed a few times too. I think that’s another reason related to why I’m not into reading or writing. Honestly I really want to get into it though. I want to read a book that leaves me in the edge of my seat.
