The author was so concerned throughout the essay on why and what they hitchhiker was doing in the middle of nowhere. After the old lady was picked up what I got from the reading is that the driver
I've been looking forward to coming to this beauty for the past 3 months ever since my mom had finally agreed to let me go. Although she didn't want me to go alone no one else would go with me so she bought me one round trip ticket to a small Alaskan town, with a connecting flight to Lake Clark. I thought that my high expectations may be lowered as soon as I got there, but I was wrong.

Next, Part 2 talks about the deepest and darkest secrets of Montgomery that are primarily centered on her mental state, sexual orientation, and her life as a married woman.

It is a secondary source so it shows what this historina has discovered and concluded after her years of research. Limitations: this source is an extract and therefore only shows one of her findings and we do not have the full context nor the other causes she has mentioned in her novel.

Part of Lois Simmie’s purpose is to keep the book one hundred percent spot on and she does a very good job by giving dates every time she could. Sometimes there was not a date given this
The story is written from an omniscient perspective. Almost as if it was an investigative journal because of amount of detail and information given, such as details of Bennet’s family background, his personality traits, his affiliations, etc. The story started with present court case, went back to before Bennet was born, and worked its way, chronologically back to present. This is much like investigative journalism because it is very chronological and specific The story is subjective even though due to Laskas’ background in investigative journalism, we would expect an objective story This could possibly be because she wanted to switch things up and write in a perspective that she is not used to or that she doesn’t do for a living to make it more enjoyable for
Briony has changed as a person since the first time we see her, obviously. Though she probably has changed as a person, there are parts of her that remain the same. Her book of atonement is to apologize for negatively affecting Robbie's life by wrongfully accusing him of rape. But, while writing her book, she could have left out important details that she was probably ashamed of. She is an author and as an author she is also concerned with keeping the audience engaged and entertained, telling white lies were all in favor for the readers of the book.
“Oh the places you’ll go, today is your day. Your mountain is waiting. So...get on your way.” This might sound a little familiar to some, but others might not know who wrote this quote.
