It gives the reader subtle hints about characters and their situations, clues to events that might happen, and it conveys necessary information about the story. In addition it can also tease or mislead the reader into thinking that something might happen that actually does not. In the novel Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck uses foreshadowing to give hints and clues about what might happen in the end of the book. If a writer fails to include some form of foreshadowing, there is a possibility that an incident or occurrence will happen too quickly and leave the reader confused and wondering why that particular event was not mentioned earlier, or why they are connected. In the book Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech, foreshadowing is immensely important.
However, they both like to emphasize mysterious aspects in the story to highlight the plot. They also both use analogous phrases throughout the plot to somewhat foreshadow some symbolic events that might occur in the future. This style of writing greatly conduces an optimal reading environment and motivates the reader to continue reading the book. This reading style also motivates the reader to reread sections of the text and process it in their free time to fully understand the motives of the characters due to the fact that both authors sometimes leave information missing for the creativity in your mind to make up. However, there are also numerous differences that may clearly appear as you continue to read their books.
This mood was not consistent throughout the entire novel, due to the fact that Suze changes as a person, as well as many other changes in the book. The overall mood of the novel showed that the author’s ideas and direction of the book was to simply give a realistic story that showed what life was like for some people during this time. My final opinion of The Green Glass Sea is that it’s a good story if you’re interested in things related to the past. Things that occur in this book can definitely be relevant to the life we know, therefore this book could be an enjoyable and entertaining read for just about anyone. To conclude, I would recommend this novel, because we see many different kinds of things going on such as science, history, bullying, growing up and
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is about a dystopian society and how in their society books are neglected and burned. How he conveys these emotions or moment in the book by using lines from other books called allusions. Allusions are used to express how people feel in the moment of the book. Authors use allusions because it makes it easier for people to connect to the book and you get the sense of what is happening in the book. Bradbury uses it in Fahrenheit 451 because the book is complex and harder to understand so he uses allusions for the reader to get a better understanding of what is going on and what the situation is.
As others claim, suspense is better kept with first-person view, since the narrator can disclose certain elements, but because the narrator can’t get into the minds of the other characters, not much is disclosed anyways. Throughout the story, suspense is an important part. To explain, the reader wants to know the consequences for Miss Strangeworth’s letter, and the reveal of her roses being destroyed would not have been as satisfying if we knew what the character was going to do. Third-person single vision allowed the author to describe the world differently than the POV character would, yet also keep suspence, “The entire story is filtered through the point-of-view character’s consciousness” (Gotham
By only having one, the overall purpose of the book would be lost in indirect communication from the author and boredom from the reader. Missing even one of syntax, diction, or imagery would cause the loss of tone and dramatically lower the quality of the novel. The Blind Side, incorporating all these together, is able to draw in the reader’s attention, and maintain it throughout the book while still giving an accurate portrayal of the events changing the life Michael
These trials give us an opportunity to grow and transform our lives. In the same way, as Faber said, we need texture when we read a book. We need to feel the paper within our hands, the scent a book holds, and skim our fingers over the words. We need texture in our lives, just like we need it in a book. Fahrenheit 451 reminds us why it is important to include literature in our lives.
If not for these stylistic choices of the author, much of The Kite Runner’s meaning would also be lost because of their importance in developing both the story’s characters and plot. In particular, the character arc of Amir, the main protagonist of the book, would be stripped of an immense amount of significance due to these literary devices having such a prominent role in establishing the character’s inner and outer conflict. In particular, much of the story’s use
Throughout the books Heart of Darkness, by Joseph Conrad, and Things Fall Apart, by Chinua Achebe, both of the authors have been giving the readers a constant reminder about the topic of othering. Whether the topic of othering was clear or hidden in the words, both Conrad and Achebe stress the fact that humans tend to alienate when they are faced with something different. How the authors introduced this topic came in various different ways, including how certain people were characterized, how symbolism was used, and how the book’s structure was composed. Throughout the books, different people were eventually introduced, but they were usually looked upon differently by the people of whom the main characters are a part of. As in Things Fall
The Princess Bride is an average book, meaning that there were interesting parts and some parts that were not engaging. I enjoyed how they included great detail when describing everyone’s live and what shaped them throughout time because it gives you an overview on what the character is like. Although I didn 't like how during the story when something interesting is happening, the author, William Goldman, would interrupt and spoil some parts, because as a reader, I like to find out what happens without having to stop in the middle of the story. Lastly, since I do not enjoy fantasy books, I did catch myself throughout the book zoning out because some parts were just not interesting and I didn’t like how the author would ramble on at some points.
