McCarthy depicts, “the man had already dropped to the ground and he swung with him and leveled the pistol and fired from a two-handed position balanced on both knees at a distance of six feet. The man fell back instantly and lay with blood bubbling from the hole in his forehead” (McCarthy, 66). The isolation from other “good guys” made the man to not hesitate to kill the stranger in front of his child. To sum up, after everything in the world died and survivors were isolated from hope and light, people started to act different as they used to. The author Cormac McCarthy shows how people follow their barbarity and selfishness to survive throughout the book.
This novel shows the story of a young male by the name of Tom Brennan who is forced to move from where he lives when his brother Daniel becomes the perpetrator in a horrible accident. Much like in the Australian story In my Little Town this novel in centred all around a terrible car crash caused by a young male. In The Story of Tom Brennan one of the main times where the line between perpetrator and victim can be blurred is with the character Claire. Claire probably was the reason Daniel started become aggressive and crazy which is what lead up to the accident because she broke up with him while he was drunk before the accident occurred. This part of the book shows that Claire could be partly responsible for the accident and could probably be also a perpetrator in this situation.

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby offers up a social commentary on various aspects of the 1920s society such as injustice, betrayal and corruption of the American Dream. Of all the themes, the one that is the most developed is that of social stratification and inequality. One could say that he makes a distinction of groups to send a strong message about the moral character of each social strata.

He encouraged sinners to a clear message, to be righteous as he compares between the ninety-nine sheep to one lost sheep. However, it seems the ninety-nine are more valuable than the lost one. According to the Gospel, Jesus asked, “which one of you having a hundred sheep, and losing one of them, does not have the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until he finds it?” this comparison was significant for tax collectors, who thought themselves sinners, it shows God’s mercy over everybody even sinners.

In addition, Jesus implies a new idea about intention and how it is more important than what someone have done through his life.
It 's surprising to think of someone who has gone through slavery, yet still can have a faith in God.

The idea that Tom 's slaveowner trusts that this boy, Tom, will come back even when he has the chance to run away shows the amount of power the slaveowner has over Tom.
