That is exactly what he is doing driving around the lake, trying to trigger positive images from his life but he is not able to, he just keeps going around and around the lake like the sprinkler. The Song Tra Bong River is a symbol of the once pure lake that would turn to mud and create a disaster that would overflow his life for a long time, if not forever. Norman explains that the river “was exactly like any other river, nothing special” but in the wet seasons that “the rains never stopped, not once, and so after a few days the Song Tra Bong overflowed its banks and the land turned into a deep, thick muck” (O’Brien, 135). This represents the turning point in his life from clear and simple to a never ending rain turning the river into muck. During the war his life felt heavy and difficult to get through.
It took the two a bit of time before they were used to being around each other. Liesel had to get used to a Jewish man hiding in her basement and Max had to get used to being watched by a little girl every time he went to sleep. Once they felt comfortable around each other they treated each other like brother and sister. The reason they bonded so quickly was explained on page 227, it says “During the nights, both Liesel Meminger and Max Vandenberg would go about their other similarity” This is saying that Max and Liesel discussed their nightmares and fears on many occasions. Realizing how similar they were, they became extremely close.

However, Rosa is not just taking in any normal person, she is taking in a Jew in the time of Nazi Germany. To describe the feeling Death says, "Imagine smiling after a slap in the face. Then think of doing it twenty-four hours a day.
To start, sometimes characters have to the wrong thing for the right reason.

Rudy and Liesel injure another boy in order to steal food from him. It was wrong of them to attack
All she can do at this moment is analyze her surroundings be grateful for the things she still has“He looks at me, and sees me looking...He’s just taken a risk”(Atwood 18). At this moment nick has just broken one of the unspoken rules where the handmaid's shouldn’t look at any of the men because that’s not their purpose. In this quote Nick is risking his life by even acknowledging Offred because she’s a handmaid. This quote is ironic because later in the Handmaid’s Tale Nick risks much more than just glancing at Offred. Offred is first scared to do anything that would possibly lead her to the colonies.
He could be charged with manslaughter”(Valgardson 258). This shows that he is thinking through what could happen to him. Stories also show us not to repeat things.

This shows that Harold was in a situation that he could not get out of.
Once we arrived at the pier where the ferris wheel is, we went into the mall on the pier and ate Panda Express. After that we went and got on the boats that go out onto the lake before we chose the boat because it looked like a really fast speedboat. Once we were on the boat we noticed how fast it was once we took off and how cold it was out on the lake. Once we got off the boat we went to the kiosk and noticed our pictures that the photographer on the boat had taken and my hair was crazy because we were going so fast. After we left the kiosk we went and got on the ferris wheel because it was dark.

Having Max living in Liesel's basement teaches her first-hand how serious things are, and the dangers of what Hitler can do. Max not only is in danger himself, but puts Liesel's whole family at risk. “Now I think we are friends, this girl and me. On her birthday it was she who gave a gift to me,”(Zusak Ch 12). Liesel gave Max the gift of friendship, and that meant a lot to Max.

This particular scene is very descriptive and shows the author 's use of imagery well. I can really see what the lake looks like from the characters point of view by using what he said about the shape and size of the lake. Another scene in which the author uses imagery well is when the pilot has in the middle of having a heart attack, Brian didn 't know what was going on with him. When Brian figured out that the pilot died he didn 't know what he was going to do about everything. He knew he couldn 't land the plane and he couldn 't fly to where his dad lived so he was very nervous about what needs to be done.
