Growing up was the last thing Holden ever wanted to do. Though Holden tries utmost to fit in the adult world, but he can’t find the right path to follow to. He sees the world in with a different view of the people and society. The number of people he enjoys being with are as many as how many fingers in a human’s hand. Everywhere he seems to go, he has some bad things to say about it.
You see it peek out at some points in this video when his father is trying to keep a calm tone and tries to talk about Evan’s problems. They have the ability and it seems like they are doing well but in the end they just end up being mean. His father has a tendency to blow up and go straight to being frightening and mean. His mother has a tendency to be mean, but she also can be weak sometimes. She accused Evan of something and when the father started yelling at him about it she gave in and said it had probably been her fault.
As you pass through the middle of the story, Todd meets a few new people and again is short-tempered about his knowledge this time. “‘It never did,’ I say, raising up my eyebrows. Hildy looks at me, her own eyebrows mocking mine. ‘Was it never? I must be mistaken then.’ ‘Must be,’ I say, watching her.” (Ness, pg 170) In this case, he is short-tempered because he argues a point that he thinks is right and he thinks no one else knows the answer to it.
The conclusion I have reached about Chris is that he was a distant and ill-prepared person who had a very strong will. Chris seemed to become someone who was untrusting of others. I think this was caused by his parents. Chris never really saw eye to eye with his parents especially his father and after Chris learned of his father’s past double life his relationship with his parents had begun to deteriorate. A quote from his mother said “‘He seemed mad at us more often, and he became more withdrawn-no, that’s not the right word.
Most of the time men are seen traveling alone, so when the owner saw that George and Lennie traveled together; he didn't trust George because most of the time people aren't seen traveling together unless the other person sn owes money. “ Well, I never seen one guy take so much trouble for another guy. I just like to know what your interest is.” The owner was suspicious because the time was set when the Great Depression existed. When people were greedy and lonely and that was one of the things Lennie and George tried to avoid. But sadly the intimacy of George and Lennie didn’t last long because of Lennie’s mental state.
Many people judged Christopher, it was apart of his daily routine. As a reader you only get Torey’s stories of Chris and what he could be like at times. As the author goes deeper in telling Chris’s story Torey realizes that Chris was a good person who was pressured by so many people to do good, “‘I think Chris snapped. I think he flipped out from a combo of everything. School, being lonely, but mostly because of his parents.’” (47).
In the story The Catcher in the Rye written by J.D. Salinger, I have noticed many different events that continue throughout the story told by Holden Caulfield. Holden is our main character and is a troubled teenaged boy. He literally has no clue on what he wants to do with his life; he kind of hit the base of the ground. Holden has a mother and a father who appreciate him but disagree with his actions.
He was not happy” (Bradbury 12). Montag’s repeated behavior of smiling before bedtime changes drastically after Clarisse asks him whether or not he is happy. This marks the moment when he begins to question the ways of his society, and he also begins to want more from life than just the distracted living that it offers. Because Montag has not done much thinking during his lifetime, he has difficulty thinking
And when he stands up by disobeying, he is faced with punishments. Another way Cory’s possession of courage is shown is when he is acceptant of punishments that are directed to him. Troy reached the peak when his son didn’t quit so he never signed the papers allowing Cory to scout out and he also spoke to the coach. This is sort of a form of punishment because he took away something Cory was looking forward to, something he really wanted to do and that thing was then stripped from him making him miserable. On the inside, Cory must have felt anger, and betrayal, but he also would have felt accepting of the decision his father made, because his father was looking after him.
Joseph Strorm (David’s dad) and the inspector question David about Sophie but he reveals nothing. His father tells him to go to his room and David narrates, “I set my jaw and turned to go. My father followed, picking up a whip…” (Pg. 51) David knows Sophie is his friend. Even though he knows he will get a beating if he does not tell on Sophie, he believes it is wrong to give her up and resists against his father.
I read “Middle school: Mmy Bbrother is a Bbig Ffat Lliar” by James Patterson.The book mainly talks about what the title explains.On how having a brother that continuously lies on you and one who is consantly annoying you in any and everything you do.You would think since he’s older he would act more mature than what he does,but he doesn’t.At times it does show where they aren’t trying to cut each others heads off but them actually getting along, which is barely ever. Reading this story made me feel sad at times but covered up the sadness with laughter soon after (that rhyme).In my opinion, when writing this he intended to entertain by making people laugh and it definitely did.Because in his writing, he uses jokingly and sarcastic
