But that’s not always true, for example searching for love, accomplishments, and new ideas could also be a search. In the book Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell, Marcus has some of these internal searches. So far in the book Marcus has successfully made it through BUD/s training and is now on a mission in the mountains of Afghanistan where they get in a conflict with an army.

At first glance, one might believe that Marcus Luttrell’s purpose for writing this novel would be to tell the story about what happened, but it goes deeper than that. Luttrell wants to make others understand the honor that his brothers had, that the only reason he lives is to tell the story of the men who fell for him. Luttrell states, “...I’m writing this book because of my three buddies, Mikey, Danny, and Axe. If I don’t write it, no one else will” (7). With this, you can see that his purpose is personal; that he loves his brothers and he wants everyone to know the selfless sacrifice and courage they had that ultimately ended up saving his own life.
Duration: 352 pages Publisher: Little, Brown and Company Date: 2007 Inspired by a collection of photographs in a book by William Dendy called 'Lost Toronto ' (Toronto: McClelland & Stewart, 1993). - - - Inwardly, I particularly admire authorship (s) who gravitates to a core of a bygone era; I find deep-rooted factual analogies comforting, on par to wearing old slippers. Ye-s, I was seeking consolation in Redhill 's book - although, in this case 'Consolation ' sufficed for a millisecond; a large part of the millisecond was curiosity... thankfully, I 'm no feline. The term: consolation implies warmth, comfort - ideal, after a hard day 's graft; from the off, I cradled my stomach in anguish as I struggled through Redhill 's digressions,

Art Spiegelman’s Maus II “A Survivor’s Tale,” is a well-known graphic novel that depicted the holocaust. Rewriting a story about the holocaust in the form of a graphic novel or comic as some might describe it, probably seemed unusual and childish. Comics and graphic novels were seen as lacking that education equivalent that people would refer to when researching or reading about that specific point in history. Having a large amount of books relating to the holocaust over the years has only made it repetitive because we are aware of Auschwitz and its terrible events. Art Spiegelman did a fantastic job in retelling the story of his father’s survival in Auschwitz.

Trust is a very feeble concept. It requires a lot of work in order to gain trust, yet one simple action could cause you to lose it. This is a prevalent theme found in many pieces of literature including “The Courting of Marvin ClarK”, Othello, and the Bible. Trust is the foundation for many different relationships in life because it is the ability to rely on those around you. It is important because it is the basis for making a good decision, building a marriage, and establishing a religious faith.
