As you can see, I have a little bit of most of the characters in “Shooter” in my personality. I would say I am a fine rounded human who still has much to learn.

Since we have yet to finish the book, there are still many ways I can be related to these characters in the

The Road by Cormac McCarthy and Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier are stories badgered with conflict, anxiety, and passionate self-confidence. The Road is about a man and his son living in a post-apocalyptic world, scavenging for food and shelter for survival. Cold Mountain includes both the story of Inman, an impaired civil war veteran struggling to travel back home to his lover, Ada, and Ada’s story as she has to deal with her father’s death and run her farm single handedly. Although the plots of these two books are rather different, they do hold noteworthy similarities.

Every hero needs a sidekick and every leader needs a right-hand man. Essentially, a sidekick and right-hand man are the leader’s helper, but that does not mean all sidekicks or right-hand men are the same, they also have some similarities. A good example of two right-hand men are Piggy from Lord of the Flies and Robin from Batman and Robin. Piggy is one of the main characters in the book, Lord of the Flies, and he’s a chubby kid who helps the main character and chief, Ralph. Robin is a young man who helps the super-hero Batman. Piggy and Robin are similar characters because they each help their respective leader, but they are more different than similar because Piggy’s intelligence and loyalty are stronger than Robin’s.

In addition, she also declared that she was well-rounded in math and problem-solving, something I believe I possess as well. Both of these reasons contributed to her pursuing engineering. The final reason why we are alike is because she mentions that she enjoys watching movies, of which I enjoy too in my free-time.
The fictional character I believe I relate the most to is Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc and Monsters University. I chose this character specifically because to me he demonstrates all of the important virtues I believe I possess. First is his tenacity and persistence that he displays throughout his life, and especially when he was studying to become a scarer in Monsters University. Mike is shown to be studying when everyone else is procrastinating or partying, and he is shown to excel academically because of his efforts. As a full IB diploma candidate, this is something that I can definitely relate to. I know what is is like to study and work much more than the average student given my rigorous classload. This creates a similarity between
