Brandon Smith Mr.Dittmar 12/14/2014 American History Book Report #2 “Killing Lincoln” Killing Lincoln is a very good easy to read historical book. I already knew some about when Lincoln was shot and how he died but this book put in so much more little details that any other thing I have gotten information from. I feel like Bill O'Rreilly did a very good job writing this book. I really like the way that it was wrote using the time and different days for the chapters. That helped give the book some detail and helped me understand what was going on in the book and when important scenes were easier to understand.
Why Eisenhower? I chose Dwight Eisenhower for multiple reasons. One of the main ones being that I had to do a report on him last year and discovered he was a very interesting person. Also, for reasons unknown, he was always found interesting by me. Although I had to complete a small report on Mr. Eisenhower, there were still many unanswered many questions.
Before knowledge of the previous case came about, Cherrystone law enforcement had dearth information on the Martin family. I thought using the past case to grasp some insight on their investigation was clever. Using the time switch caught my interest and has made me enjoy this book even more. The devastated town of Cherrystone now has renewed hope after a previous case could lead to new information. The book, A Cold Dark Place by Gregg Olsen has grasped my attention in many different ways that I have enjoyed and has lead me to grade the book an 9/10 (A-).
Furthermore, Dahl also meets a man named Mdisho while he was in Dar es Salaam. Mdisho, according to Roald, can be identified as smart. The author states, "He learnt fast, and although we were still on single words, we would soon be progressing to short sentences." (The Beginning of War, paragraph 17). I think it is very impressive for Mdisho to be so skillful at English because I don 't think he has ever spent a day in a classroom before.
Carver’s long time editor, Gordon Lish, had severely altered many of Carver’s early pieces. It is shown the Lish not only changed characters names and altered endings, he also cut over 75% of two of Carver’s short stories(Encyclopedia Britannica). As Carver is a beloved writer of the 20th century this was a shocking reveal, however looking at his original, unedited pieces the terseness and his view towards the dismal life of someone in the middle class remains unchanged. There is however a variation of opinion regarding the significant changes, on one hand, Stephen King expresses the changes as “a total rewrite … a cheat” yet Giles Harvey states “[this] has not done Carver any favours. Rather, it has inadvertently pointed up the editorial genius of Gordon Lish.”(Lorentzen).
The author really drove this point’s home with vivid illustrations and quotes. If we run all our conflicts through the model presented in Matt 18:15-18 I think we would have a lot less division on the mission field and even in home churches, but so often that is easier said than put into
My experiences with writing have been a mix between good and bad. For the most part I don 't necessarily enjoy writing, but I find it more enjoyable when the topic interests me. Last year I wrote a seven page paper about the possibility of extraterrestrial life which for some people might sound boring, but really caught my interests and made the writing process quicker.
The first sentence of The War Prayer causes one to think that there is great and exalting excitement because Mark Twain said, “This was a time of great and exalting excitement.” When we read the next line, Mark Twain says, “The country is up in arms.” In those first two sentences, your mind switches the perspective of what is happening from good to bad. In The War Prayer, there is also a lot of emphasis to exaggerate certain points like the soldiers swung by instead of marched. Other examples of this are cyclones of applause, and the deepest deeps of their hearts. The type of language that Mark Twain uses really puts a clear picture of what is happening and he makes it so that you can imagine what it would look like in the church. The War
The definition for Honor is high respect. To me the word Honor means a lot more to me than high respect, my definition of honor is a lot of hard work and dedication. For example Stephen Hawking was a very hardworking man and he had a disease called ALS, ALS is when over time you eventually become paralysed. Even though he had this horrible disease it didn’t stop him from experimenting and discovering new things. Stephen Hawking was born in Oxford, England on the date of January 8, 1942.
Although this book is well written, there is also a few contradictions but overall this book has addressed every aspect of Jackson's life. Andrew Jackson and the Search for Vindication is a book that everyone should read to fully grasp Andrew Jackson's choices and strategies made to better the United States of America. James C. Curtis is a well-educated man, and this gives him the merit to compose this biography and talk critically. College students and people who are intrigued with history would find this to be interesting and educational. This book is considered James C. Curtis's best-written works and it is justifiably
