In the science fiction novel, The Giver, by Lois Lowry, Jonas tries to find Elsewhere, because he is tired of living in a community with so many restrictions. During his journey, he faces many difficulties and experiences many problems he did not know existed. Sameness is atrocious because it requires people to follow the rules, even when they believe they are not right, and because people don’t get a choice in the decisions. Sameness is a disadvantage because people always have to follow rules, even when they do not believe it is ethical. The narrator states, “He [Jonas] knew he had to tell it all, that it was not only all right but necessary to tell all of a dream.
What Chris did not expect was for him to die on his journey, but rather have it help him grow and gain new experiences. I believe it’s safe to say that Chris hated his family, his whole purpose of leaving was to divorce himself from his parents. "McCandless was thrilled to be on his way north, and he was relieved as well—relieved that he had again evaded the impending threat of human intimacy, of friendship, and all the messy emotional baggage that comes with it. He had fled the claustrophobic confines of his family.”(pg.55) This quote shows how Chris wanted to prevent himself from committing the same mistakes his father did. He feared that by staying he would be distracted and never again have the chance to travel.
Which in the end resulted in a very unfitting demise for Gatsby and Myrtle. Nick is not an honest storyteller but he is a reliable narrator because throughout the story he has been judgemental towards others and not saying the full truth or truly giving the reader the satisfaction of knowing his feelings. In the beginning, he said this “In consequence, I’m inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores.” (Pg.1). Thus from the very beginning of the novel, Nick was stating he had to reserve all judgments but as the reader continues to read on this statement turns out to be false as he in multiple occasions judges a character such as Tom, Gatsby, and Daisy. Nick is a reliable narrator though he tells the full truth all the way to the end well at least to the reader not actually to the characters in the novel.

After asking his mother about his father’s PTSD, he was told it was because of the war, but Terry knew there was something else, something specific that had happened; “ But it bothered him whenever it happened. When something bothered him, he liked to stay with it until he understood it and he understood not part of this”(50).
While Unoka was seen by everyone as low because not only did he not have any titles he couldn’t properly take care of his family. This image of Unoka that Okonkwo had all his life lead him to try to build his life to not be like Unoka. “His whole life was dominated by fear, the fear of failure and weakness” for “[resembling] his father” (13). Okonkwo’s identity for himself was that he was to be everything his father wasn’t where on the inside he was vulnerable and controlled by the fear of being Unoka and inversely being himself. The new identity that he built was shown to the village as a rich powerful warrior with many titles.
Lennie’s strength and his childish mind is his biggest struggle that affects many people on the ranch and himself. Lennie is overprotective of George and about being with him he would do anything for the guy, so when Crooks tells him, “S’pose he gets killed or hurt so he can’t come back.”(71) Lennie then contradicts his opinion”This ain’t true. George ain’t got hurt.”(72) he can’t believe that something like that would happen to George that will leave him alone.

Chris hated that. He hated the thought of his parents, especially his dad, having had near total control over him. He never showed any signs of it, but by the end of college, Chris McCandless was dying to get away. Throughout the story, Chris showed he had a determination to get to Alaska. On his trip he meets various people who care for him.
When McCandless returned home his parents expressed their fears about his dangerous, daunting trips. Although he knew the dangerous situations he was putting himself through, he didn’t want to back down to his parents, “he wanted to prove to himself that he could make it on his own, without anybody else’s help” (178). He was tired of being babied by his parents, he wanted to show them that he was no longer a boy, but a man. McCandless’ refusal of his parent’s loving advice therefore proves that he wished to be his own person, stating the actions of his trip into the wild as being sane, and a product of independence.

In conclusion, it can be said that George 's reasons for ending George 's life were enough to do so since Lennie was a very dependent person and could not stand alone.

I just wanted my family to be happy, live in a big house like what those white people got, with a garden, and my son can go to any college he wants to, and even though I hate to say it, Bennie can’t be a doctor no more… all because of Willy. Why does people have to be like this, man. My father worked himself to death, and this is what I do with his money, no, his own flesh and blood. I’ve done messed up… nobody’s ever going to trust me again, oh God… I’m so sorry… All them white folks have sons with their own rooms, they can go to any college they want… not sleep on a couch, in a rat’s nest of a house, my selfishness that brought me down to this new low for me.
