The narrator goes on to say “ I wish john would take me away from here… it is so hard talking with john about my case, because he is so wise, and because he loves me so.” Women were not known to have have a voice in the 1800’s they had to do what the men said most of the time. She really has been trying to get away for her mental health, but John never lets her leave in fear that she was not well yet. John pitied his wife and whenever she told him something he would try to convince her that his way was right cause he is the doctor. John says “ why darling… our lease is up in three weeks, and I can’t see how to leave before.” When she tells John how she feels, he basically goes around the question since “ John knows best.” John has most definitely depressed her even more then she was at the
This is caused by Curley’s controlling personality, always bossing his wife around. In another part, Curley’s wife talks to Slim, Lennie, Candy, and Crooks about how she wants someone to talk to. She says, “Think I don’t like to talk to somebody ever’ once in a while? Think I like to stick in that house alla time?” (Steinbeck, pg 79). Curley’s wife doesn’t care about how people think of her, she just wants people to think of her.
Maybe it was the lack of connection or affection with her mother that caused Jeannette to include the parts she did. She tells more stories about her dad doing more positive things than negative, so when he did good things they stood out substantially. I think that some of the negative situations with Jeannette’s mother traumatized her as a child, so she clings onto those memories, rather than the good ones. Most students in my class agree with me, while some have their different

Summary: In “Money Can’t Buy Happiness” Amy Novotney, a writer for the American Psychological Association, reports that money does not lessen the burdens of life. To do this, she starts by showing that, contrary to popular belief, rich people have many problems that can’t be solved with money. For example, it doesn’t help one to be a better parent. In a survey among wealthy families, parents stated that although their money helps them to provide for their children, it does not aid in teaching responsibility or help the children to fit in with their peers. Novotney infers that as money fixes problems, it brings up others.
This novel is a critique of society, the 80s in particular. Bateman 's murderous rampages and occasional cannibalism are rather blunt comparisons to consumerism and consumption. The characters in this book, Bateman included, are very materialistic and self-centered. This is the author reflecting what he sees as a pervasive element lurking in society. The characters, Bateman especially, are monsters created by a culture of greed, a culture where conformity is highly valued and differences are frowned upon.
This simply is not the case as many characters display faults in their actions. Greed is one major subject that is nearly shown in ever character throughout the story.

Tom shows his strong need for adventure and fame in the scenes he takes part in.

Due to segregation, they could not afford what white families could, and this was because they were paid less in the workforce. “How sweet it would be if I found I could fly.
At first Josie hated her father Michael for what he did to her mother, but then ends up opening her heart to him and accepting him into the family. She also didn’t get along with her Nonna that well at the start, but after realizing what her Nonna went through when she was her age, Josie and her Nonna started to see eye to eye. The reason Josie didn’t get along with Katia (Nonna) that well was because of the way she treated Josie’s mother. If Christina (Josie’s mother) or Josie ever did or wanted to do something Katia will always say “people will talk” and that really annoyed both of them. Josie’s relationship with her mother is a love hate relationship, one minute they love each other to bits and the next they’ll be screaming and throwing stuff at each other.
The reason for the viewership is the subliminal need for power. In one way or another we must see or hear about how others are suffering, so we can feel better about our situation. This can turn dangerous as some many feel they are deserving of more, so they go and create their self-righteous version of terror. Because of this powerful businessman and their rent-seeking activities and the abusers of the BlueServo project possess similar motives. But when people are the ones being viewed or spectated, humans attempt to escape reality to focus on irrelevant things.
