These five students all believe they have nothing in common with one another, but as time passes on they realize they have more in common than they think. The Breakfast Club is a timeless film that goes deep inside the mind of teenagers and destroys the stereotypes of typical high school students by showing there is much more to a person than their outward appearance may suggest. The best decision John Hugh’s made when writing The Breakfast Club was deciding to have the five characters represent the most common types of cliques that can be found in high school. The five characters each have a different personality and this gives viewers the opportunity to each have a character that they can relate to. By being able to relate to the characters, viewers are able to connect with the movie on a personal level.

Still, what is interesting about the Daodejing is the idea of returning to a way of the past.
Even though people don’t think of setting as an important element in a story. Once it is thought about, every real story has a setting. Word choice isn’t as important as setting since you still can understand the story and know what the characters are doing and where. Including for The Great Gatsby setting is such an important factor for the book, though the book can be confusing at times because it is so fast pace it is much easy to read when the reader understands the setting of the book. In conclusion a story would never be a story if the setting is not there.

However, as the story progresses, the reader sees Paul develop into a rather withdrawn character. Paul is bothered by the dullness of his home and school life, and would much rather be spending his time at Carnegie Hall with the actors and actresses. For this reason, Paul can be described as a round and dynamic character. Paul is happiest in his fantasy world than the realities of the real world, which “represent his idea of beauty and personal brilliance” (Saari 389).

I rate this book a 7 out of 10. This book has a good lesson to teach teenagers.
