They can also see the strength of Basilio and his family. The filmmakers offer haunting images rather than analysis and facts, and never sentimentalize the protagonist and his issues. Because of this approach to filmmaking, Basilio can be more easily viewed as a hardworking individual who is trying to find a better life for himself and his family rather than an object of sympathy.

My favorite part of the book was that Hole in my life is a true story which makes the farfetched events plenty more exciting. I enjoyed the ending because he finally got what he wanted, to write. The ending gave a sense of fulfilment and it was very satisfying. My favorite part would be when he was in the drug industry, the entire time he was on edge, the story became very suspenseful and edgy. I would recommend this book to everyone, The book is exciting and a real page turner to say the least.
War Changes Molarity Tim O’Brien is both the author of the novel The things they carried, and one of the most important characters. Tim O’Brien narrator and some might say the protagonist.
