“Brother, brother, don’t leave me!” In the short story, “The Scarlet Ibis,” James Hurts writes about a child who is born with disabilities that cause him to be treated differently. Eventually, his older brother is so embarrassed by him that he decides to teach him to be normal and the ways of life. The author writes about how embarrassing feelings overcome people and force them to do strange things they would have never done before. Also, the leading results can impact someone’s individual life. Doodle’s disabilities affected him from birth so he was not treated equal and his brother wanted him to learn the things he should already know.
Brother was determined to teach Doodle how to run, swim, climb trees, and do all things that a healthy boy can do. "I did not know then that pride is a wonderful, terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines, life and death." (p.419) The brother stresses on pride. He pushes Doodle to make him fit in at school. When he took Doodle to Horsehead Landing before the first day of school he fills shame of failure but he doesn't stop trying even when he knows it's fatal.

The Giver in the movie is a lot different compared to the book. He is much friendlier in the book than the movie portrays him.
While storytelling can change and shape a reader’s opinions and perspective, it might also be the closest in helping O’Brien cope with the complexity of war experiences, where the concepts like moral and immorality are being distorted. “How to Tell a True War Story” and “Ambush” are stories that both explore on topics: truth, the real definition of a true war story, and the role of truth. O 'Brien starts off “How to Tell a True War Story” with “This is true.” Starting this story with such a bold sentence not only makes it seem more true, but to some extent, it acts as a comfort statement to the narrator’s own doubts, as if there were unspeakable uncertainties and lies of the narrator. The title of this story also comes into play, with a meta-fictional name “How to Tell a True War Story”, as if it were a guide, a manual, having a true war story tell the readers how to tell a true war story. However ironically, towards the middle of the story, us as
