He even states that it looks like something escaped, not left. Leaving Houston, for Paul, is a way to escape his past and and start over. Tangerine by Edward Bloor is a novel that I would rate at about an eight or a nine. It didn’t quite make a ten just because there were certain parts that the pacing of the book threw me off, whether it be everything happening too slowly or too quickly. Other than that I really enjoyed the book overall, and especially liked and related to Paul’s character.
The way an author writes a work can mean the difference between interest or the lack of interest. When first reading “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” a reader may find the ending quite a shock. However, if another author would write the same plot, the shock may not exist, but, because of the many techniques displayed by Ambrose Bierce throughout his work, readers remain interested and shocked upon first reading the last line. Techniques Bierce display in his work, such as use of point of view, literary devices, and plot developments, prove useful throughout “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” by peaking the reader’s interest and keeping him or her trying to guess what exactly happened. Bierce employs two forms of point of view throughout his work, third-person omniscient and third-person limited.
He has a crush on Renee Albert, the hottest girl in school, and a girl named Annette has a crush on him. The most thought-provoking concept in the book is knowing or thinking about the relationship characters would have with other characters. One of the most intriguing being Jeffrey Alper and Renee Albert. They are both distinct but at the same time similar in the ways
Jessica Christy Klayton Kendall English 121 7 September 2015 A Better Understanding In the essay ‘Disliking Books” Gerald Graff claims that he has an “advantage teaching literature”. That advantage is attributed to the fact he felt animosity and fear towards books growing up. He didn’t understand what he was to say about these books that never related to him. Or why he was supposed to say these things. Understanding the confusion about these things and knowing that there is more than one way to get to the goal, loving and understanding literature, is the true reason that Graff has an advantage as a literature teacher.
Philbrick did not only write a meaningful book about hope and friendship but also made it a realistic, adventure novel. His novel entertained me but also made think about what hope truly is. Hope isn’t when when you think oh I’m too lazy to study but I hope I do alright on the test. Hope is when something bad happens to you and all you can do is think about when everything will be alright. Max started out the book being lonely and hopeless.
I rated it this because it was very interesting and I wanted to keep reading to find out what happened next. Like when Janina and Misha were hiding from the Jackboots, I never wanted to stop reading so I could find out what happened. Overall, this book was great and it taught me alot about what people were feeling throughout this horrible
Ever since he learned the letters of the alphabet Douglas was flooded with a joy for reading “books”. The hunger for enlightenment found him in the oddest of places seeking his lessons. Out of the knowledge came a pain that would have broken a normal man but in the end only fueled the drive to learn. Through the painful times it was his hope for the future and all he hoped to accomplish. Douglass’s rise from the “pit” should act a source of empowerment for anyone who has ever felt slighted, trapped or has been treated as a lesser for they are much more powerful than they
The writing style Roth likes to use involves lots of positivity, possibly even too much. Some critics claim that the topics could even be described as “common sense”. Critic Bashira said, “If you take to reading self-development books, a lot of his concepts--you'll realize--are hardly new.” Bashira does touch and expose Roth’s writing in a positive matter however, giving Roth the true credibility he deserves as a creative author. Bernard Roth’s story The Achievement Habit, included chapter two, “Reasons Are Bullshit”, which was a great chapter to give affection and impact on all the rhetorical appeals he ended up covering. The ways Roth expanded on the topics showed how creative and intelligent the Stanford professor truly is.
Despite the saddening, dull consequences to the stimulating chase, it had remained rooted in her heart. Mainly because the pursuit bestowed her such emotions she didn’t know she longed for. The pursuer might have just wished to have a word with them, but yet he chased them to the point till they were all exhausted. Hence, it can be implied that the man didn’t just want to say a few word, but maybe he wanted to experience his childhood again, hoping to get out of his usual work routine to feel young. And Dillard and her friends might have just triggered that response out of the man, which is probably why the memory stayed engraved with her, because through this, she learned that once one starts something, they have to finish no matter what in spite of the outcome.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes adventure and an edgy storyline. This book had my emotions in an uproar with it’s constant plot twists and turns. I would recommend this book to anyone who doesn’t mind losing a main character or two, and is okay with feeling drained after the chapters. The book makes you think what our world would be like if we could hear everyone’s thoughts and how we would have to adapt to the new
