My current favorite book is Faking Normal by Courtney Stevens. I personally love it because I can relate to her life struggles personally, and have been in her shoes more than once. I have read the book in one day, six hours to be exact. It is honestly the greatest book I have ever read, and would recommend it to anyone. Though there is some touchy subjects and moments in the book, I would still recommend it.
Due to supporting implications within the opening chapter of The Poisonwood Bible, with continuing evidence throughout the novel, it can be concluded that guiltiness is a motif. Nathan Price is an individual who plays an important role shaping the actions, choices, and feelings of the five women. Orleanna states in the starting chapter, “[she] married a man who could never love [her]”(8) and “[she] remained his wife because it was one thing [she] was able to do each day”(8). Orleanna is very passionate about her children, which is why she holds Nathan at
Sarah Blackwood also wants the readers/ her students to be able to appreciate a piece that is written by a woman, for a women, about a young woman, because they might have something important to teach us about women’s lives. In reading this piece I have found it to be interesting that the author included her personal experiences in here. For example, when she relates her birth with Bella’s birth. Sarah Blackwood stated that she felt like the narrative’s representation of pregnancy and birth was somehow very real excluding the part about the half-vampire half-human baby. It’s interesting to me, because I didn’t know that
She writes about being "surrounded by darkness and danger" (40); these sentiments from a 14-year-old girl gives insight to the forcibly accelerated way she grows up under such circumstances. The diary becomes Anne 's record of growing up as well as her record of her understanding of the war. The diary itself continues to be one of the most widely known books in the world, fulfilling Anne 's desire to become a writer and having her word live on after her death. The selected symbols each tell a complex story of the humane struggles we all face in adolescence. The play The Diary of Anne Frank depicts a recognizable, benevolent scene of family and youth; we can observe these meaningful parts of life through the eyes of a young girl in the time of war.
This chapter reveals that Mrs.Dubose is rude and stuck-up. People are nothing but nice to Mrs.Dubouse, but her rudeness always seems to shine through. Mrs.Dubouse is a rude old lady to both adults and children an example of her being rude is ““...Hey, Mrs.Dubose,” I would receive for an answer, “Don't you say hey to me, you ugly little girl ! you say good afternoon
She says ,"I have been hurt Mr. Danforth; I have seen my blood runnin' out! I have been near to murdered every day because I did my duty pointing out the Devil's people- and this is my reward? To be mistrusted, denied and questioned like a-"(Act 3, Pg. 108). This statement shows her that Abby likes her newfound power and will let no one take it away and power-hungriness is a villainous trait.
The American science fiction and fantasy author Richard Grant once said that “the value of identity of course is that so often with it comes purpose.” In both The Awakening by Kate Chopin and The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood, the main protagonists search for their identities through the context of their daily lives. In correlation with the preceding quotation, in The Awakening, after a vacation opens her eyes to all that she has been missing in her life, she becomes desperate to find herself outside of the mother-woman while in The Handmaid’s Tale, the narrator must decide which parts of her identity she wants to hold on to and who she is in the trying times of the Gileadean society. The two novels demonstrate the journey of these women
Brave Heart By XXX A favourite quote of mine by John Finley is, “Maturity is the capacity to endure uncertainty”. It rang true, once again whilst reading Chain of Hearts, a captivating debut novel by Maureen McCarthy that explores the burden of embedded guilt through a series of flashbacks as embodied in the experiences of the central character, Sophie Douglas. Here “the origins of a bitter rift between the mother and the aunt” are revealed. The novel begins with ‘troubled’ Sophie who explores the highs and lows of teenage life through her journey into adulthood. Although many people may see Sophie as a petulant teenager, I see her, as time goes on, as someone who is fearless and compassionate.
To have the opportunity to be in this community and get to know its people and learn new stories of this world continues to be the goal of studying abroad through the historical memories of its people. As a hopeless American who still believes humans can be good, I find myself continuously moved by Ann Franks story. The transformation of this young girl changed the world, in my eyes, through her diary. She treasured so much, and learned life was not about commodities but what destruction these commodities produced around the world. The intense energy in the historical site makes the research, the reading, and getting to better understand the situation through her eyes, deeply moving and still impacts my way of thinking and treating other
