It brings the foreshadowing, suspense, and then the irony together that keeps the stories interesting and fun to read. In The Machine that Won the War we see foreshadowing first thing in the story; “For the first time in a decade, technicians were not scurrying about the vitals of the giant computer, the soft lights did not wink out their erratic patterns, the flow of information in and out had halted”(introduction paragraph). Likewise, in The Story of an Hour we see foreshadowing deeper into the story, “There was something coming to her and she was waiting for it…” (9th paragraph). We see foreshadowing in different parts of the story but they both have it which brings about suspense. Suspense is a feeling of excitement or anxious uncertainty about what may happen; which both stories have and make the stories more enjoyable to read.
“Worrying is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but doesn’t get you anywhere.”- Van Wilder. In the play Third by Wendy Wasserstein, the main character Laurie, is a control freak and overactive worrier . She is described as a pioneer in her work. As she was the first woman to receive tenure as an English professor at previously all male college who also happens to have a great reputation, in addition to excelling Harvard and Oxford, almost as if she had never been completely challenged.
Annabella displays her wise, eccentric, and hard-working personality in all of her efforts to aid Kira. Although Annabella is from the Fen and is uneducated, she is one of the wisest people in her village. This wisdom comes from her four-syllable age as well as her knowledge of the dyes. Kira’s thoughts reflect this on page 128. “For weeks, now she had worked with the dyer.
The sophisticated, yet easy to understand language made the book stimulating. Everyone needs to read this book. Too often, slavery is seen as a blimp in American history. It is summed up to “that was horrible” and subsequently forgotten by students. “12 Years a Slave” takes an often forgotten narrative and makes it unforgettable.
Throughout my life I have read and analyzed a lot of books, but none of them got my attention and interest as much as Of Mice and Men did. Of Mice and Men is written by the author named of John Steinbeck. John Steinbeck was a very intelligent American author and one of his most important accomplishments was winning the 1962 Nobel Prize in literature for his realistic and imaginative writings. The reason why this book appealed to me so much is because this book teaches the reader multiple life lessons that the reader can reflect upon. One of the main lesson this book teaches the readers is what it means to be a human.
If I was your girl – Book Review At first glance, If I was Your Girl (author Meredith Russo’s debut novel) seemed like the typical basic, easy going holiday read; A girl named Amanda moves to a small American town to live with her dad, and meets a guy named Grant. In fact, I almost put it back on the shelf, if not for one key factor that caught my eye; Amanda was born a boy named Andrew. This alone set a great premise for the plot line, and I was not disappointed one bit. Even if the story dragged in places, this book is still a firm favourite of mine due to the well-developed characters and vivid language. A key factor to keep in mind is that Russo herself is in fact also transgender, which in turn means the novel reads true to her experiences.
We are going to discuss Anne’s diary, Anne’s passion for writing, the value of her diary, Anne as a writer, and why her diary is so popular.

Munro’s story was ten pages long but every part of her work was very sophisticated and organized something that many readers of Biostories would appreciate. Though many stories featured on Biostories cover lives that have overlapped with with the author of the short story, Munro’s was different, her story was very appealing to a different audience you would expect on Biostories website, reader’s who enjoy history. Not history that you read about in textbooks or know from memory because of its significance to society but, family history that is specific to just a small group of people. That's what makes the targeted audience
Anyone of us will always wish to read a good book that interested them. There are plenty of books that could help our humankind feel relax, happy and enjoy them.“To Kill The Mockingbird," a book that everyone should read once in their life. A book that have interested me and my classmates, the book haven’t finished yet but it produces so many lessons, moral values, and more that have increased the readers attentions. I only read from chapter one to chapter fourteen, but I have feeling like I have gone through half of many people lives. Moreover, after fourteen chapters, the theme of the first half of “To Kill The Mockingbird” is the lost of innocence in childhood and the conflict is about the children versus the adults.
The beginning of my cadet career was full of interest, albeit, questions certainly swirled in my mind. All I had known about the Air Cadet Program previous to joining was from second hand sources. I was yearning to know more about the program that so many successful Canadians had graduated from - what did being an Air Cadet, really mean? To answer this, one of the first lessons I was taught as a 12 year old on a Wednesday night was General Cadet Knowledge: specifically, the aims of the Air Cadet Program. At the time, the three aims seemed simple enough, but looking back, I never really understood what the “development of citizenship” meant.
I read the graphic novel book Bone Out From Boneville by Jeff Smith. This book has 138 pages. According to a customer review on Amazon, “ this is a great book for everyone.” I think the intended audience for Bone Out From Boneville is a middle school age and up. I say this because there are some situations that younger audiences might not understand. The protagonist in the book is Fone Bone.

They would meet every Friday night to discuss witchcraft, practice rituals and magical workings, to share spells and increase their overall knowledge through sharing. Oneida understood the genuine reality of practicing magic and the supernatural. This was the approach that she applied to her studies. Because of this openness, she could work from a harmless spellbook as she could also summon demons. To Oneida it was all the same.
English 1301 has definitely grown me as a writer and I can see how I have improved as a writer. One aspect in how my writing has grown is in the ability for myself to expand on my ideas. Honestly, the first paper that was assigned to me frightened me a little bit because of the four page minimum requirement. Never have I wrote a paper this long because I typically just write the basic requirements and never expand and elaborate on my ideas. However, it forced me to expand my ideas and as time progressed, this became very simple to execute.
