He is humorous, yet somehow finds a way to connect to his audience and engage them in the story. Barry talks directly to his audience when writing. He goes into and out of ‘academic’ style and uses informal language to make a connection to the readers. Barry makes his readers feel like they are reading a book written by a good friend, not someone they have never met before. He does this to embrace his story telling for the differences between guys and men.

O’brien manipulates the use of silence throughout his novel to further enhance the reader 's imagination to get as close as they can to being as emotionally impacted the way O’brien was while experiencing the stories first-hand. Silence alone plays a major role within the book in which it helps set up a contrast between the real and the fake, and the stories and the present. Throughout the entire book, O’brien seems to be invested in describing his situations as thoroughly as possible; sound especially he seems engulfed into, considering that in the book alone he
As you can say, it enhances the text with thoughts and emotion of the character. of the character. Because of the tone, it also may cause the reader to feel a certain way.The tone and mood are very essential to a book. Without the tone or mood , you would basically be reading a dictionary.

As I stated earlier there are many great things about this novel, but he also connects his book to everyone’s life. Just Mercy can be summarized, analyzed, and read by all college students because of the life changing stories it tells. I feel deeply changed and moved by this novel and I am looking forward to reading the next novel that St. Ambrose
He is using full sentences. Although as noted throughout the story Eliezer had to mature and at one point he became “nothing but a body. Perhaps even less: a famished stomach” (Wiesel 50). This quote helps show the loss of value he had of even himself. The horror of the Holocaust has broken this boy into losing every want but to just simply breathe.
As an author writes their story, their ideas don’t just come from thin air. These things that they write about stem from their personal experiences and views. John Steinbeck wasn’t any different in this sense. In fact, The Grapes of Wrath draws many parallels to Steinbeck’s own life. While writing the book, he took these things into account, and applied them to the Joads and those around them.
Although, Rand’s writing captures the reader easily because this is written as sort of a collection of thoughts from Equality 7-2521. Rather than a story, the writing can be almost like a pile of jumbled thoughts put together. However, the way it was written worked for the book; as you see through the character 's head, and were able to experience and read his thought process as he examined himself as a community of people to finding himself as an
Over all the book is more than just a collection of the diary and letters mashed together into a book, the author talks about what is going on at the time McClellan is writing his letters before showing them to us, he also helps the reader a lot with footnotes of places, people and events throughput the redaction, also citing his own research within the book, it is easy to read since they are letters and a diary, they were more of a narrative than a regular history book which made it more interesting. The author mainly uses primary sources such as letters, something I found interesting was that the author also picked letters addressed to him. I felt like the author did a great job and made the book really easy to follow, but I felt like the book lacked that attention grasp, it was smooth read and in all honestly not hard, but I always look for a book that grasps my attention for a long time span. When reading this book, even thought the footnotes where at the end of each letter or diary entry it was tedious having to turn the page when I did not know about a concept. The Mexican War was a big moment for the United states.
Gary Soto is a very interesting writer. I want to investigate and see what he has done that is similar with all his stories. One thing that is similar is that he always talks about middle school age people. That and a few other things are what he writes about a lot. First I will talk about Broken Chain.
Elie 's faith excites him from a young age and he wants to learn more about God. He is so intrigued by his faith that his entire day he would read pages from the Jewish writings and books. "Together we would read, over and over again, the same page of the Zohar. Not to learn it by heart but to discover within
Tim O 'Brien 's "The Things They Carried" is aimed at many audiences, but the two main ones are: veterans who have shared similar experiences and relate to the harrowing, yet heartfelt stories in the memoir, and those who were no where near the action. Thus, his memoir provides a consolation for veterans, but provides direct confrontation with the uncomfortable truth for others, just like Phil Klay 's "Redeployment." For the younger generations, reading memoirs is alluring as they are keys to understanding the past. Furthermore, the appeal of reading memoirs is its generally manageable readability. The format of writing a letter to your current or future child or telling a war story allows the writer to write on a conversational level without sacrificing eloquence
