The last excerpt I decided to use are my favorite two sentences in the entire book. It has multiple literary devices but I could not resist using both sentences. On page 355 Preston writes with an eerie undertone "Nature seemed to be closing in on us for a kill, when she suddenly turned her face away and smiled. It was a Mona Lisa smile, the meaning of which no one could figure out. " Within that short passage one can see the presence of personification, allusion and imagery.
I enjoy the Southern dialect utilized within the dialogue because it makes the novel authentic. This choppy way of speaking is written exactly how Twain intended for it to be spoken, which allows the reader to vividly depict the scenes in their heads. Heartbreaking and heartwarming aspects of the novel showcase the plot’s diversity and in turn attracts me to this tale even more. The character development enables the audience to grow with the story’s stars and forces those who read it to become emotionally attached and invested, which is its final gravitating
There has to be something that a person can predict, no matter if it was wrong or right. Foreshadowing, is a major part of the book that readers, like me, can unequivocally enjoy. In conclusion, Foreshadowing has major role in the story Of Mice and Men. The different parts that are elaborated in to the story make it a richer book, which people still read today, hence becoming a literary classic. Lennie, from the beginning, was already replete with foreshadowing.
To begin with, this is a type of novel that I would not normally read. I am not really into the subject of World War II and the Jews. Due to that statement, I did not enjoy this book very much. I did, however, enjoy the beginning, as it contained a scene about baseball. I am a huge baseball fan and I enjoyed reading that section.
One of the most prominent themes in the Book Thief by Markus Zusak is that love can be found anywhere. The theme of love can be found anywhere is illustrated throughout the novel by author 's craft by showing Liesel 's feelings, emotions, and characterization. Liesel used to be an introverted person and did not like to talk. She ended up finding relief in books and her new friends. She has had her old family ripped right away from her.
The Devil’s Arithmetic, a novel by Jane Yolen, is very inspiring to me. It explains the feelings of not only just Hannah, but many others. It lets me know that in any situation, you can always persevere. Although this book can be sad, the sadness is powerful. It takes you to a whole new perspective of the Holocaust, not just through facts, but actually living it.
The Invaders was admirable because of the depth of the character Thorn. Nobody in his world would have suspected that he was once an amazing warrior. The way the characters are brought to life is what really attracts me to this book as well as the author. I plan on reading the entire series as I love the writing John Flanagan has. He gives enough detail to show the reader what he is talking about, but also leaves enough to the imagination of the reader, which I thoroughly enjoy.
One example of this is at the end of chapter three it leaves you wondering by saying “And with it, the truth.” Another reason I enjoyed reading the book was it was written in third person. Zero Day was narrated by someone not in the book so you didn’t know how every
An Unusual Narrative In Cold Blood, a novel written by Truman Capote, is a very interesting novel that I have enjoyed up to this point. It’s very well written: Capote is a master of the use of suspense and spine-tingling language. The narrative draws you in and is very compelling, and it’s sometimes hard to believe that the plot is based on real events and real people. It’s very impressive to me how Capote went to great lengths to describe two murderers, Dick and Perry, as seemingly ordinarily people, who are extremely complex and extremely psychologically damaged. He establishes their insanity with quotes such as, “‘Boy!
In the Glass Castle, the movie beautifully portrays the scenes in a visually pleasing manner. It captures the characters emotions and physical appearances nearly perfectly. Destin Daniel Cretton, the screenplay writer, does a wonderful job of putting the thrilling stories into action. The actors chosen could not have been better casted, Woody Harrelson, in particular, projects himself into character perfectly. Reading through the book, I wondered to myself how credible the stories actually are.
