Hassan would stand up for Amir when Amir would get bullied by Assef; however, Amir would not do the same for Hassan. Even though Amir treated him different they was still close friends. Amir and Hassan will spend a lot of time with each other when Amir came home from school. They would go to the pomegranate tree and eat pomegranates as Amir read stories to Hassan. One summer day Amir craved, “Amir and Hassan the sultans of Kabul” (Hosseini 27).
Hassan’s ability to suffer without becoming bitter frustrated Amir greatly, often making him feel guilty of his actions. The substantial thing about Hassan was that he remained a truly good and genuine person, even though he had his fair share of hard times. Even years later, after being driven out of the house by Amir and growing up to live his own life, Hassan never thought of holding a grudge against Amir, making him truly admirable. Hassan married a woman named Farzana and they conceived a child together. Hassan named his son ‘Sohrab”, after Amir’s and his favourite book when they were little, highlighting that Amir remained very important to him.
I ran it fairly. This is his kite” (page number). Assef and his cronies had Hassan cornered, but instead of giving them what they wanted, Hassan continued to be a great friend to Amir and to fight for fairness. Hassan’s rape also marked a changing point in Amir’s story. Amir continually blames himself for not stepping up and stopping Assef and for everything that happens to Hassan thereafter.
The discrimination of people depending on the color of their skin was just as bad as well. The main character Mare, developed amazing friendships with some Silvers after she learned to look past the differences and she tried to learn who they really are, not just their appearances. Through reading this novel it helped me to understand the pain of discrimination and since the story was told in first person, I could feel the emotions the main character was feeling. I think discrimination because of what a person’s blood or skin is like is truly an awful thing to do and this novel helped me stand by this argument more
The whining of girls.”. I read this and was immediately disgusted. I read the full article and confirmed my disgust. That he would have the audacity to publish even a single paragraph of it is unsettling, but in conjunction with the supposedly pro-women image he’s now trying to cultivate with The Unmade Bed it’s downright disturbing. I’m aware that we never stop learning, there’s always room for betterment upon skewed viewpoints, and while it’s nice Marche has apparently improved, I still believe that he hasn’t fully moved past his misogyny.
This has nothing to do with the last page we ended on and it frustrated me throughout the book that this happened continuously. Overall,“The Hot Zone” is a very good book and I would recommend others to read it. I loved the detail that Richard Preston put into the book and how he made his point across very clearly about Ebola. He is a very good write and I am glad that I got a chance to read this book because it taught me about Ebola and other viruses as well. This is a very good novel and I am looking forward to seeing more of his writing or maybe even looking at others that he has already
One of his ugly traits is that is fearful to rebel. In the beginning of the movie when everyone kept on throwing books in the fire, he stood with them because he was to afraid to rebel against the Nazis. Though he may have had some ugly traits, Hans definitely had some beauty. Hans is very trustworthy as shown in the movie as he takes Max in and treats him because of a promise he made a long time ago. He helps Max recover and keeps him safe when the Nazis tried to search
Montag laughed, “That’s against the law” (14).These quotes are truly showing us that Montag had loved his job and he was respected about it at the beginning of the story. Montag eventually stopped burning books. He realized that books represented people’s ideas and their own experiences. Then he strongly decided to learn from the books.”I want you to teach me to understand what I read “(255).”He reached under his pillow. The hidden books were still there”.
You would never expect your lifelong best friend to be the one to betray you at your lowest point. However, at any given moment, that kind of bond can break in an instant through betrayal; you give someone your trust, and they take it for granted. In the novel The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, the character Amir commits one of the most unforgivable acts of betrayal against his best friend Hassan by staying as an inactive bystander through a sexual assault. Throughout the book, the author perfectly captures Amir’s betrayal through the symbolism of the pomegranate tree, the corduroy pants, and the lamb. The pomegranate tree symbolizes Amir and Hassan’s friendship, which slowly wears down because of betrayal.
He is so loyal to Amir that there is one quote in the novel that proves it, “For you, a thousand times over.” This quote stuck with me because it is showing how he will absolutely do anything for his friend, even if it means that he could pay the consequences. For instance there was a part of the novel where Amir asks Hassan to throw the fruit at him and hurt him as hard and as much as he wants but instead all Hassan did was hit himself with the fruit proving that he will never do anything to hurt his friend, he splits hits himself with the pomegranate which opens it and asks Amir if he is happy yet and walks home. “Then Hassan did pick up a pomegranate. He walked toward me. He opened it and crushed it against his own forehead.
Other techniques that were used include hyperboles such as when the unknown hitchhiker also stated “If I opened my mouth it would spill out like a torrent of acid” (Page 24). The story also used the techniques of imagery where the hitchhiker described what their sister looked like “then the memory of Melanie’s grey face with the bruises around her neck and the dried blood in her hair jumped up to haunt me”. (Page 23) The writer, Sherryl Clark also used hook as she kept the reader guessing. Overall the story is very engaging to its readers, especially for those who don’t like long stories. Fresh Bait was one of the best stories that was read out of all of the Top Stories 2.
I think that Hatchet does a better job of telling the story. The reason I think Hatchet does a better job telling the story is because it tells all of the good details and juicy delicious tails. But on the other hand, A Cry in The Wind it just tells some parts. For example, it really didn’t tell you about his mom having an affair with the man in the station wagon. But in Hatchet it tells you all about the affair.
The author included an immense amount of creativity in his compilation of words such as, “There were things I wanted to tell him. But I knew they would hurt him. So I buried them, and let them hurt me” and “The secret was a hole in the middle of me that everything happy fell into.” The way he binds words together makes the book richer, extremely loud in the sense of sentiments (no pun intended), and more vivid. Reading sentences such as these made me feel every single emotion each character felt. Writing in a unique way that intrigues the reader and makes them highly emotional requires great skill.
