First love can be portrayed through many different things such as one’s first long-term pet or somebody’s first real relationship or even finding a new hobby that one loves. In Erin Morgenstern’s novel The Night Circus, Marco Alisdair and Celia Bowen are competing against each other where only one will remain alive and a character named Bailey Clarke finally figuring out what he wants to do with his life as his passion for the circus grows even more as he gets older. The relationship between Marco and Celia end up causing a very dramatic ending to the novel where all the people who are part of the circus have to come together to save what they love and make sacrifices. The theme of first love effectively captures the meaning of Erin Morgenstern’s novel The Night Circus through the
Although no movie based on a book is fully satisfactory, it is always amusing to watch the storyline in a different light. Jenn Doll, from The Atlantic, explains that “Because a criticism of how it should have been -- and almost always plays out better in our minds -- is in some ways part of the fun of seeing the movie made from a book we love” (Doll). It is an exciting experience to anticipate what we know already in our minds, to be projected into the real world. Overall, the book is a thrilling read, the movie is a thrilling visual, but nothing would ever beat the books complexity of feelings and
However, to get to that point in the story, you have to read almost the entire book. But don’t you fret! Shades of Grey is imaginative, humorous and last but not least, what makes it a work of art – audaciously odd. There are so many eccentricities and quirks in the novel that although quite complex and puzzling at times, you are still able to breeze through the entire story in no time. The novel begins at a slightly slow pace, however this is done extremely deliberately.
This mood was not consistent throughout the entire novel, due to the fact that Suze changes as a person, as well as many other changes in the book. The overall mood of the novel showed that the author’s ideas and direction of the book was to simply give a realistic story that showed what life was like for some people during this time. My final opinion of The Green Glass Sea is that it’s a good story if you’re interested in things related to the past. Things that occur in this book can definitely be relevant to the life we know, therefore this book could be an enjoyable and entertaining read for just about anyone. To conclude, I would recommend this novel, because we see many different kinds of things going on such as science, history, bullying, growing up and
In the book Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech, foreshadowing is immensely important. The use of foreshadowing in this book gives many hints as to what will happen in the end of the book, but many people do not realize this until they finish reading the book. Foreshadowing gives the reader things to ponder over as they read the story, they may think one thing, but something completely different may
The Book Thief was one of my favorite books that I have read so far, the author, Markus Zusak used imagery and used foreshadowing to prepare the reader for more important events.The author switches from the first person and third person point of view and how it gave you different perspectives.In the book, there's a sad tone and some humor in the book as well. The author uses flashbacks to inform the reader of previous events.The author used the first person because he wanted to switch from character to character and to make the story more interesting.He uses symbolism in the novel and he did that, it made the story more entertaining and unique. In the book the main character is Liesel, her brother died and she was sent to her new home with her foster parents in Germany.The story took place in World war ll and the Jewish were getting killed by the Nazi army.One day a Jewish man came and took shelter in her parent's basement.She needed to keep the Jewish man a secret or he would get killed.She found love for books and use them for comfort and she gets the name the book thief because she took books that she found from anywhere.The author uses diction to create tone.In the novel, there's a lot of imagery that set the mood for the novel and creates an
The children will do what it takes to find what they are looking for. The Baudelaire orphan’s believe one of their parents may be alive. In this ninth book on the Baudelaire orphans come out of Count Olaf’s trunk to discover that they are at a carnival. Count Olaf and his troupe are in the tent of a fortune teller, Madame Lulu. The orphans hide their identity by pretending to be carnival freaks looking for work.
When reading a story, book, or novel, you’re expected to follow the story from start to end--that is if the plot is to your own tastes. Exposition, rising action, climax, falling action, and resolution is what makes up a plot. The better the plot is structured, the better the story is, right? A well-written story makes readers yearn for more, making them feel like they’re at the edge of their seats, engrossed with what is written on the pages. Of course, not all would feel that way about a story, as not all stories end with a ‘happily ever after’.
The Quality of Mercy by Anne Schraff When I went to the library, I was very confusing which book I had to choose. But the cover of “The Quality of Mercy” grip my attention, I got curious to read it base on my love for author Anne Schraff. Also it was my reading level. I told myself I will like it, because all Anne’s books are very fantastic. At first, I didn’t like everything.
It will be quite difficult for me to recall wonderful moments happening several days ago,let alone even earlier time. I need to put them down somewhere before they are lost. Thus,things get improved as I talk about them in my diaries. What excites me most is that writing indeed does wonders for collecting my inspirations. Usually I feel fine thoughts spinning about in my brain.
Davis 's way of writing The Return of Martin Guerre is very easy to read. Davis says in On the Lame, a response to critic Robert Finlay 's review of the book, that she wanted it to read like a mystery novel for all readers. Davis backs up what shes says with historical facts and does ask questions on chronological events. Such as when the real Martin leaves, Davis states that it would be interesting if Martin went to his ancestral home or not after stealing from his father to escape. Davis does not spend a lot of time on the topic, but spends enough to make it interesting and remind the reader that these were real thinking people all those centuries ago.
During the time that I read 1984 I made a promise with the writer to be attentive and to comprehend all the information. My first meeting with the writer was slightly dull in all honesty. But, as I spent more time with the book and the writer it started becoming more interesting and engaging. Of course, there were times where the book bored me. For example, the excerpts from Emmanuel Goldstein’s book was slightly tedious to read.
The Princess Bride is an average book, meaning that there were interesting parts and some parts that were not engaging. I enjoyed how they included great detail when describing everyone’s live and what shaped them throughout time because it gives you an overview on what the character is like. Although I didn 't like how during the story when something interesting is happening, the author, William Goldman, would interrupt and spoil some parts, because as a reader, I like to find out what happens without having to stop in the middle of the story. Lastly, since I do not enjoy fantasy books, I did catch myself throughout the book zoning out because some parts were just not interesting and I didn’t like how the author would ramble on at some points.
One way or another this story has something that will touch your heart. Reading Krista and Becca’s books once is simply not enough. You’ll go back to it every day and if not, every once in a while, just like home. After all of the heart-break I went through with Hothouse Flower, I couldn’t be anymore happy how it all turns out. This is easily one of the best and most heart wrenching book I’ve ever read to
