Informal grammarian and author, Lynne Truss, in her New York Times Bestseller Eats, Shoots, Leaves, demonstrates the genuine importance of punctuation to derive meaning from written text, often through the dramatization of grammatical errors and the exaggerated outrage of pedants such as herself. Truss clarifies at the start of her novel that her purpose is not to teach punctuation, but to inspire a newfound appreciation for it by illustrating how its evolution to present day allows people to properly communicate and interpret writing.

Not only does this show innocence and an honest point of view, but it also allows Twain to hide behind his character and share his opinion. Another aspect of Huck’s maturity and growth
While complete strangers offer Riley help, next door neighbors scorn Walker. At every step, the ever-volatile opinion of the public, shaped by prejudice and the media both hinders and helps these two men - even more so than their own internal flaws. The story of Walker Roe and Riley Dutcher could have been easily written as a simple morality tale and, in a way, that 's what it is. However, instead of banal moralizing about the sins of lying or crime or alcohol or whatever, De Morier is far more interested in a story about human imperfection and the way our thirst for success and recognition battles with our need to simply be better with ourselves and each
