Thus, she became a world-known speaker and author. Unlike Helen Keller, Frank McCourt’s obstacle was his background. He always felt ashamed to talk about his past. He was afraid that people will prejudice him because of his unwelcome background. However, he could defeat his obstacle, because he had a good sense of humor.
The Kite Runner By Khaled Hosseini Since I last read the book a couple of years ago, I have gained a considerable amount of insights into life. Revisiting Amir and Hassan had been a challenge, for I am extremely tired of the ridiculous coincidences throughout the entire narrative. However, I have some sweeter discoveries this time. The book itself is mediocre in many respects: it has rich but flawed content, and the author also has a terrible habit of applying incomplete sentences everywhere. Yet, I do not hold the above against him when it comes to considering my personal opinion on the themes of this novel, which are admittedly well-developed.
This image symbolizes the entire novel, because the whole story mainly revolves around Henry and Barkley’s intimate relationship and how it was affected during a time of war. I found the novel interesting at first, however as it began to get further into the relationship of Henry and Barkley, it started becoming boring as events in their relationship were being repeated and were becoming more and more predictable, taking away the surprise factor. The novel was written in first person, which made it more interesting to read, because it showed the point of view of Lieutenant Henry, from his thoughts to his actions. His writing also contained strange patterns, which was followed with either very short sentences or very long run on sentences. His writing style in this novel really enhanced the point of view.
He also got his wife back. Overall, I enjoyed reading “The Richest Man in Babylon”. I found the book to be both an interesting and inspirational one. I found the book interesting because it was exciting to learn about the history of Babylon, something I never would have done had I not read this book. Also, I was intrigued by the way the book does an excellent job in making its content relatable by incorporating true short stories told by the ancient Babylonians.
She however thought that her case was unique and required the author’s personalized attention. Martha had totally lost passion as a banker. She had also stagnated in her job and was therefore not unleashing her full potential. She thus felt the need to urgently do something before further deterioration of her situation. It was therefore time to seek help.
The narrator even states “So I take phosphates or phosphites - whichever it is, and tonics, and journeys, and air, and exercise, and am absolutely forbidden to “work” until I am well again. Personally, I disagree with their ideas. Personally, I believe that congenial work, with excitement and change, would do me good. But what is one to do? I did write for a while in spite of them; but it does exhaust me a good deal - having to be so sly about it, or else meet with heavy opposition.
Shirley Jackson relies heavily on the reader making assumptions based on the setting that is introduced to manipulate them. She uses conflict to draw the reader 's attention, for example the crowds hesitation to help Mr. Summers, hinting at the unease and discomfort the villagers feel towards the lottery. In my opinion, the setting is quite tedious in itself and without the conflict, it wouldn’t have an effect on the reader that causes them to want to keep reading. In manipulating the reader with setting, the author also leads them into thinking that the story will be less interesting than it actually is. I believe that the combination of the setting with the conflict is what really draws the reader into the story and keeps them reading up until the last line of the story.
Holes is a puzzle that readers want to solve. On the end the writer tells that the book is for boys and girls. Opinion: I agree with the reviewer. It is a very deep book and it can be hard to understand because the spiral between past and present can be difficult. There are jokes in the book and nothing is what it looks like.
Nevertheless, sometimes we fight, the last subject of our argument was a social issue. She said that she would abolish abortion, it was hard for me because I am a pro-choice, but later on, she listed me things that were wrong, in her point of view. I did not agree with most of these causes, but the way that we were discussing was peaceful and kind. This allowed me to open my mind to find a common ground. We could agree that the abortion is always difficult for a woman because she may need help from a counselor.
The detailed of the story makes the book a boring read. It may be mistaken as it is romance novel or book on war. The flow of the story is like life going on. How it is told and what the content is are crucial. The story composes the complexities of conflict and
