As mentioned before, the book is very information rich. It is so heavily filled with information that the majority of the time I felt like it was boring and slow. Someone who loves to know everything there is to know on a topic may enjoy more than I did though. * What are the strengths and weaknesses of the book? The Rasputin File suffers from prioritizing telling all of the missing information on Rasputin in the fullest detail possible than telling the full story of Rasputin making it feel more like an informational read than the biography that it is classified as.
Maybe you feel useless sometimes, but when you think about it there is many people who wouldn 't survive a minute without you, that 's why I love the fact that we are all different, and unique. Another good thing of being unsimilar may be our opinions, for example we all have different opinions on various stuff, and different perspectives on them, we may all read the same book but we could of understand the moral in a distinct way. "Normal is the absence of individuality." I can 't remember who said it exactly, but those words are really important to me, wherever I go those words go with
Anyone who enjoys economics would most likely love this book as it provides the information they need. The tone throughout the book is contemplative with an academic theme. Because it is a non-fiction book, it is hard to attract young readers which is why Levitt talks about topics that are bizarre such as sumo wrestlers and the most common black names. The main issue with the book is how the chapters are incredibly long and dull. Freakonomics is focused on a younger audience, around teenagers to young adults.
It was all really good information, but it didn't seem very organized. I ended up losing track and skipping a few of my questions. Also, it was hard to my train of thought, listen to what she was saying, remember her points, and get ready to ask my next questions all at the same time. I ended up just reading my questions off the paper. It sounded kind of stiff.
I also would have added lots of detail and happy and sad moments. Most of all I would have made a true conflict with a real character. “The Sixth Seal” by Mary Wesley was not well written or in any specific format. If you had the choice of reading a well written book or a poor written book which would you choose? I personally think that is an easy decision.
The discussion about the stolen radio was not entirely easy to understand due to the large time gap between the program airing and the current time. I t believe it was possible to listen for non-verbal communication to an extent, as some things can be imagined due to the context of the language. I imagined the detectives giving each other looks and nods from the way the story was told and the events taking place. After a shaky start, I enjoyed the program for the most part. It was not the most original story but I did feel moments of surprise.
In our world today, many people find it difficult to seek the happiness and satisfaction in downhearted times. Thus making it strenuous and burdensome to strive for prosperity when hope seems impossible to find. Finding lightness in the darkness is a trait that not many people possess, so making the best out of a situation and finding the “light” is key to making a negative situation better. Many main characters in the novel The Scarlet Letter written by Arthur Miller possess these qualities. These places/objects are shown throughout many symbols in the novel.
This semester I read the books con academy and partially through touching spirit bear. This was an insane to see myself even do that I have not read a single book since the 5th grade. My goal was to read 2 books this semester, I thought that it would be hard but not impossible. Turns out it was harder than I thought it would be, I barely got through one. Reading is a fun experience but a really hard one to focus on.
Has it ever been a good thing to not follow the rules? I find that when I don 't worry about my essays containing all the regulations it becomes more enjoyable to express myself. In my first essay I demonstrate how much of an inexperienced writer I really am. I have to admit that in my first essay I wasn 't enjoying my writing as much as I should have. I didn 't really focus on how important it was to express myself.
There are varying opinions about the novel ranging from despising it to praising it, and everywhere in between. I fall in the “in between” portion. In my opinion, the book was not great, but I don’t not like it for the same reason that many critics don’t like it for. I felt that the book was too drawn out and didn’t have a clear set plot, which made it confusing and hard to follow at many points. That being said, one of my favorite aspects of the book was seeing the growth and change of the characters from Mockingbird to Watchman.
The first reason is because the book is may be lengthy to some and not lengthy to others. For me, the book went by relatively quick. For readers who enjoyed the book, there is good news due to the book being a part of a series. Meaning that the fun does not have to end at just Wild Seed. Some of the themes within may only affect women or men such as gendered identities or people of color such as colonialism or race, but it is a read that can educate many.
I was a little hesitant to try this one for two reasons, even though I loved the sound of it. One, Young Adult Mystery stories are very hit or miss with me. I don 't like it when I know who the bad guy is before the main character does; it takes all the fun out of it in my opinion. Two, I hate it when synopsis are written in the first person. It generally gives no sense of what the story is about and is just plain confusing.
I find that time goes very slowly when we read because of me not liking to read. If it was up to me I would want less time to read and more time to work in class. I only got to read one and a half books this marking period. I read The Namesake and The Book Thief. I did not like either of them mainly because I lost focus very fast.
