The book starts off with John messing with his bowl of cereal, while talking to his mother about why his sister, Audrey, is not down stairs yet. He says that maybe she didn’t feel like coming downstairs. Audrey comes down the stairs and asked where her dad was. We learn that John and Audrey are going to a new school. John starts feeling nervous, and hopes it rains outside so he can wear his raincoat, so that way, not many
The boy has a dream about him choking, only to wake up actually choking on a silver shilling. He is confronted by his sister, who suspects him of throwing coins at her and her friends. Lettie is waiting for hin down the drive, and seems to have answers to all of his questions. They head to the farm for pancakes, and the boy is now much more certain that the Hempstocks are a peculiar lot.

This theme is shown from different characters either persuading someone or being persuaded. The author wanted the audience to think for themselves and decide whether or not the use of persuasion and the power that it has, is a positive or negative characteristic. With this power of persuasion comes great responsibility just like with any power. Along with the conflicting types of gentlemen throughout the book, many things are contrasting. So in conclusion, the use of persuasion throughout this book turns out to be mostly used for good.
He does so by adding in the characters Chin-kee and Danny. Chin-kee is the Monkey King, Emissary of Tze-Yo-Tzuh (the big god in the novel) disguised as a very stereotypical Chinese immigrant who often visits his American “cousin” Danny. Danny is a regular American with a wacky cousin from China, who is secretly the second main character the reader meets in the novel, Jin after he forfeits his soul to become “normal.” Jin perceives Chin-kee as a nuisance that ruins his social life whenever he comes to America. He sees Chin-kee as the person he essentially never wants to see again because of his grotesque way of life, although ironically being Asian is not as bad as Jin sees it. Most of the other characters see Jin as a typical American and do not really care that he is Asian.
In W.W Jacob’s short story “The Monkey’s Paw,” there are many instances of foreshadowing in order to keep readers engaged and on the edge of their seats. In part one of “The Monkey’ Paw’” the White family is introduced to the monkey’s paw by, family, friend Sergeant Major Morris. Major Morris explains the dire outcome of using the paw. Mrs. White asks if anyone has used the paw before and Major Morris responds with “The first man used his wishes, yes,”...”I don 't know what his first two wishes were, but the third was for death. Thats how I got the paw.” (Jacobs 34-35) This shows that if the family decides to use the paw then then there may be dreadful consequences.
Her classmates stand in tight groups during school looking over their shoulders and whispering to each other and a neighborhood boy follows her home loudly chanting “Half-City Jiangs! Down with the landlord Half-City Jiangs!” Ji-li walks into the police station after a long moment of questioning if she really should. She looks in the directory for the household registration office and goes upstairs to where it is located. At first she does not see anyone but, after yelling a few times Officer Ma emerges from his chair with his chopsticks in hand. Upon meeting Officer Ma he seems impatient and not very helpful, but then Jiang Ji-Li tells him that she wants to change her name to escape her bad class status and Officer Ma’s demeanor changes completely.
Finally, in both of these short stories Shirley Jackson writes the first scene of the plots so differently and keeps the reader wanting to read the story. In “The Lottery”, Jackson starts off the short story by describing the town on June 27. He first describes the uneasiness of all the children. He writes, “School was recently over for the summer, and the feelings of liberty sat uneasily on most of them.” The students were worried that her family could lose a person. Although, most of the town was scared, there were the little boys who were excited to throw stones and had them stocked up.
If the writer cannot capture the reader 's attention through the creative backdrop, settings, then the foundation is not buildable and my story may be weak and uninteresting. A crafty writer connects emotionally to the reader through description, describing time, location, weather in such great detail the reader should live in the moment. The reader becomes emotionally attached to the story’s detail of events. Subsequently, without the setting edged in an emotional backdrop the story is just a bunch of information. Setting helps establish the author’s voice and create characters.
