His determination to avenge the unjust murder of his father is seen by some as noble, but the way he goes about it and the manner he treats other innocent people in the process is frowned upon by others. For many readers the question in Hamlet isn't to be or not to be, but whether to love or hate his character. Amy Dunne (Gone Girl) Is Amy Dunne a strong female character who wasn't afraid to take destiny into her own hands or was she a manipulative, lying, homicidal villian? That is the question many readers of Gone Girl asked themselves after reading the book. The truth probably lies somewhere in between, but there is no doubt that Amy is not a typical protagonist and left many readers wondering whether they should be rooting for or against
Many detective story writers treats the assistant characters as “implied readers”. The detective writers wish their readers to be as adorably stupid as the assistants. But the readers are unwilling to meet those expectations. When the readers mock at the simple-minded assistants, they are scratching their head over how to find the truth by themselves. The tug of war between the writers and the readers are thus launched.
He deciphers a way to tell the readers that as human beings, there are just as many ways to lose power as there are to gain it. Piggy is the main source of this information, and through his past, and the ways he acts, he somehow manages to show the readers the significance of how, through our personalities and things we can’t help, we lose so much power. Many books and novels in this world focus on the things that help us gain power and leadership, but the fact that Golding did the opposite, makes this book stand out more than the others. For the boys on the island, power is a big struggle; there are always fights over who gets to speak and who gets to be in charge and make all of the major decision. Through these fights and through these arguments, William Golding shows that power is a hard thing to grasp and it is something that is even harder to maintain.

Finally, Twain mirrors the flaws of his own self-centered 19th century society through the world of his fictional book. In Huckleberry Finn, lying is a self-serving act that everybody does. Despite the idea that many readers see Huck as a moral sinner, he ultimately lies for his own self-interest and protection. With Huck as the narrator, the reader is more likely to sympathize with him and his motives and agree with his thoughts and morals. But, if Twain told the story from the perspective of a character whom Huck portrays negatively, the reader could realize that his or her motives are similar to those of Huck.
The aberrant plot established by Nabokov grabs attention of readers and forces them to explore what can be considered the ‘other side’ of this novel, in order to have an understanding and a new found appreciation for the classic love story. Brilliant literature involves twists in the plot and ideas that evoke excitement amongst readers. This is also the case with Nabokov’s Lolita, where Humbert is established as a paedophile. This is disclosed to
Tupolski is one of the two investigators that are interrogating Katurian and Michael, along with Ariel Without directly telling him, Tupolski and Ariel start to ask about Katurian’s stories and about some news stories in the current papers. Katurian at this point still has no clue as to why he has been brought here, for he thinks the stories are simply that, just stories. Katurian knows that Michael is being interrogated too when he heard screams and Ariel came back into the room adjusting a bloody cloth (20). The plot thickens and takes a dark turn when Katurian goes into his brother Michael’s interrogation room only to find out his brother is the evil mind behind the recent killing of three children. Michael defends his actions by stating he only murdered those children because he was curious to see how crazy his brother’s stories really were, so he decided to try them out.
The first impression I got from him while reading this graphic novel is how grotesque and outrageous he is to the world. Due to the fact that he often relies on his intuition to determine who lives and who dies. Eventually, I started getting a sense and understanding why he is the way he is and why he deals the way he does with his surroundings. Yet at the end of the story, he tries to tell the truth to the world and be that superhero I do not expect. Clearly because he has not been this type of character throughout the story, so at least I found myself impressed with this outcome.

Thus, Fahrenheit 451 is a very immersive and deep novel that has many revolving themes about it. Namely censorship, government power and the one explored here, the power of knowledge. In this book, it 's not the books themselves where the fear originates but rather what they contain and what they can influence on others, which is quite frightening to Montag 's government. Also the people choose to be ignorant because the government made them feel such a way that it results in this vicious cycle which only a few have broken from, such as Montag, Clarisse and her family, Professor Faber and the group of people Montag
The author describes the characters to make them seem like real people by using imagery to create pictures of the characters features and what they were wearing. He also gave them opinions and personalities. 4. Yes, I feel like the author wants the reader to make an emotional connection to the story because the authors talk recklessly about Fortunato so he tries to persuade the readers to feel the same way. The author makes it seems as if Fortunato is a bad guy especially because he’s trying to kill him to find out later Montressor was crazy.
In his argument, he is using humor, exaggeration, and a rather defensive tone. However, like most writers including Suzanne Britt, his writing should not be taken literally as it is. Exaggeration and humor play the biggest role in bringing out his purpose, which is to call out stereotypes of men and women. Barry understands that these stereotypes are completely incorrect, especially in this century, so he took an opportunity to bring them to the attention of everyone reading to make his purpose clear and

Although Thomas Sophonow was no longer convicted of the murder of Barbara Stoppel, his unacceptable experiences and brutal treatment will never truly be brought to
Finally, the personal take of Nabokov on the subject of tyranny has allowed him to produce a masterpiece such as Lolita in which the protagonist is a deranged man manipulating his audience into thinking that being a despot is not something to be ashamed of, but rather to embrace while it lasts. The novelist uses Humbert to demonstrate how powerfully persuasive tyrants can be while subtly leading his readership into not being seduced by the man (Schiller). Controversy was nonetheless bound to happen, but despite its repercussions, the gains are many as they allowed for an audience that is socially aware and critical of its interpretation of readings. All in all, Azar Nafisi was not wrong when he said that “the biggest crime in Nabokov 's 'Lolita
