Also in The Chosen not many people could relate to Danny Saunders but everyone can relate to Scout somehow or another Finally many people find The Chosen hard to read because of its difficult themes but since Harper Lee writes To Kill A Mockingbird in such a childish ways the reader does not seem so sad. Overall, To Kill a Mockingbird ranks higher as a book, then The Chosen because of its real life events and characters, very realistic problems, and the childish way Harper Lee writes. To begin with, Harper Lee adds many real life scenarios and people in her book making it a better book then The Chosen. In To Kill a Mockingbird, the narrator, Scott, a typical tom boy, has a very normal problems attributes many girls faced at the time. For example, she lives only with her father and brother which
Answer 6. Edgar Allen Poe's “The Tell-Tale Heart” and “The Black Cat" are two very unusual stories. even though they are both very well written, it would be hard to find two The narrators in both tales are completely insane and share a lot of things in common. One thing that both narrators have in common is that even though it is obvious they are, both are convinced they are not insane. In "The Black Cat," even though the narrator agrees that it is hard to believe, he tells the reader, "Yet, mad am I not."
If you have ever read these stories, you probably caught on that the tone of both of these stories is very depressing. They are both extremely committed to what they are doing, but continue to get beaten down physically and mentally. Teddy and Chief Joseph are both part of a ‘kingdom.’ In their kingdoms, they may be the “royalty” of them, but they both even doubt themselves so much that eventually, they both gave up in the end. Although, it was probably the best for them in the end, it was still emotional for the both of them. Notwithstanding, situational irony is used in both “Fall of a City,” by Alden Nowlan and “Chief Joseph Surrenders,” a passage by Chief Joseph, the effect has almost the same outcome.
There are many different types of stories out there, some which consist of love and others loss. Many people seem to think it is important to have sappy love in every good story. They think this because they have a lack of patience in plot building and need a certain amount drama to keep them entertained. However, it is possible to have a great story without any of that fluff. O’Connor’s “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” takes a different approach in a good story by introducing a slew of crazy irony.
One weakness that stood out upon reading the novel was how it jumped around between the stories of Ida Mae, George, Robert, the historical background, and other information Wilkerson was trying to give to her audience. It seemed that there was too much information. Due to all of this jumping around, there was a lot of unnecessary repetition made within stories that could have been avoided in cutting down sections. Finally, it seemed that Wilkerson was trying to emphasize the migration too much as she mentioned several times throughout the novel that her parents were a part of this historical event. While these are minor weaknesses, they made the receiving of the information difficult to comprehend.
In most stories, all developing characters have flaws. Many problems are caused by a character’s personal flaw. They can also be what draws the reader in, and it can be what connects the reader to the character. A certain fatal flaw is the inability to let go. In the stories, “Helen on Eighty-Sixth Street”, “The Cask of Amontillado”, and “The Scarlet Ibis” all of the characters are related because of their inability to let go.
The Great Gatsby Motif Essay The Great Gatsby is an amazing book that is packed with multiple motifs and themes; however there is one motif that stands out the most to me, and that would be the constant cheating throughout the book. This motif connects greatly to the theme of the main characters being dissatisfied with either their significant other or with their current situation. Each character (besides Nick) engages in an affair and eventually these affairs would go on so long that it began to expose the truth to the other characters and why they are doing what they are doing. The earliest example of this motif is with Tom’s mistress Myrtle. After meeting her in chapter two we learn that Myrtle can’t stand Wilson saying that and only married him because
Many characters had the potential to be developed into a very interesting and powerful figures, but their stories were reduced to a side notes that the author seemingly gave up on. The plot was childish in nature, with strange sexual undertones that were unnecessarily crude. The novel attempts to reconcile a highly
Some might say that characters have to be fictional, but I disagree. Every person is their own character with their own, traits, personality, and identity. Although, in The Hobbit the characters just happen to be fictional. They are a big part in the book because they create excitement and suspense for the reader, they are often times the reason for conflict, and they give the story different perspectives due to the variety of characters. The characters create interest for the reader because often times they can be relatable or be something we aren't used to, which can bring interest.
While topics of a carnal nature can be considered risqué today, in the era that Bram Stoker wrote Dracula such topics were considered all the more unseemly. By blurring this line, Stoker was able to further lure in the reader with glimpses of things perceived as forbidden. While there are several undeniably racy and shocking moments that stand out, there are nuances of romance, violence, and sex flowing through the background of the story that are not always obvious at first glance. He was able to do this in a number of ways. Firstly, Stoker refrains from presenting Dracula in human form through most of the story.
The strengths of the novel, in my opinion, outweigh the weakness. The main weakness was the excessive cursing done by Vida. When a character curses a few times, it adds emphasis, but when it happens every couple pages, it loses its effect. The strengths included the sentence variety, like how they weren’t all compound and complex, and not all simple and short. It made the reading more interesting, and the plot twists, like Clancy being at Dairy Queen instead of Cate, and Jude dying, made you want to keep reading until you finished, and then
The Princess Bride is an average book, meaning that there were interesting parts and some parts that were not engaging. I enjoyed how they included great detail when describing everyone’s live and what shaped them throughout time because it gives you an overview on what the character is like. Although I didn 't like how during the story when something interesting is happening, the author, William Goldman, would interrupt and spoil some parts, because as a reader, I like to find out what happens without having to stop in the middle of the story. Lastly, since I do not enjoy fantasy books, I did catch myself throughout the book zoning out because some parts were just not interesting and I didn’t like how the author would ramble on at some points.
