Kirsten Dunst once said, “You can never control who you fall in love with, even when you're in the most sad, confused time of your life. It just happens.” This quote relates to the relationships between the characters in Ethan Frome.

One positive effect of Ethan Frome and Mattie Silver’s relationship is that Frome initiated to invest more thought into his actions.

Daisy and the Devil she was Turned Into The Great Gatsby is one of the best works of literature because of the many complex characters that are present. One of the most controversial characters in the book is Daisy Buchanan. At the beginning of the book, I thought Daisy would be a very minor character and would have little or no impact in the book. After I finished the book, I realized she had an impact; however, I still did not think she had a huge role in the novel.

These unforgivable acts help describe her many deviant character
Frustrated by the verdict on both Annan and Gaertner’s cases, Maurine Watkins quit reporting and studied screenwriting at Yale where she wrote a play directly based off of these events. They play quickly grew in popularity, and inspired a silent film, a musical, a 1942 movie titled “Roxie Hart” and eventually, the 2002 musical movie “Chicago”. (Eig) In the classic tale, Roxie Hart must fool the jury into declaring her not guilty after she kills her boyfriend. Due to the fact that it was based off of a true story, the movie has an obvious correlation with historical events. However, the portrayal of gender stereotypes, crime and prohibition were also accurate.
Instead of setting, Susan Hill uses her choice of specific verbs, adjectives, and sentence structure to make the reader feel like Arthur Kipps and so empathise with him more than ever. Tension is strengthened by the chapter being also the title of the book; the whole novel has been building up to this point. “’You told me that night’ I took a deep breath to try and calm myself. ‘A child-a child in Crythin Gifford has always died.’” While not the most subtle of foreshadowing, this prophecy heightens the tension by adding another threat. Susan Hill uses contrasting comparisons to create tension.
Initially, “The Great Gatsby” can be seen as a painfully typical love story. As much as it is pretentious and unfortunate, it is a love story nonetheless. What makes it different than the average romantic novel is the symbolism and meaning that lays underneath the expensive lives of Nick Careaway and his upstart friends. The themes of “The Great Gatsby” are diverse and incoherently complex. The variety of motives and characteristics make reading the novel a sincerely unique experience, since the story and its’ morals will usually be what the readers makes them out to be in the end.

A relationship always needs to contain a lot of trust and some communication between each other. She proves it by showing the character’s thoughts, by telling the story using the third person limited ()and also by making it appealing to our senses.
With the influence of writers such as Reed Farrel Coleman and Elizabeth George, the Fina Ludlow novels have a dearth of intriguing and realistic characters that change and develop over time.

These are spiced up with a unique twist of a detective mystery that keeps makes for an intriguing story.
