In the beginning of the book Mary was stuck in a room with no windows and never got outside, but in the movie she was allowed out of her room and did go outside to play. I thought that the movie did a better job with this then the book did. The book just kind of said this and then moved on with the story. The movie gave a little bit more detail on the subject. Her parents died by a large earthquake in the movie, but in the book they both died along with other people in their kingdom from cholera, and that is why Mary had to go stay with her uncle Mr. Craven. I don’t think the way her parents died really affected the story; it just changed the reason why she had to go live at Misselwaite Manor. When Mary was going to meet Mrs. Medlock at the train station,
Here’s my interpretation of Ligua’s current situation, She is the head of her households, a student who needs to work hard to pay for her tuition and feed her kids. She lives in an environment of small-minded people; her neighbors are her social barriers. Social barrier refers to those factors that are external to her and impede her focus on improving her life or become successful. Her neighbors are caught up in their own thinking that they cannot see the value of exploring other ways of life. Clearly, the community where she lives has adapted a prejudice lifestyle, the people she associates with are afraid of change. The culture she’s at evolves with Ethnocentrism - It means not realizing the challenge when it influences

All three of these important characters are the very roots of this book and make the story what it is.
Roald Dahl's short story Lamb to the Slaughter is a very intriguing read. Dahl uses a lot of characterization throughout the story, giving subtle descriptions of what the characters are like. This happens the most with the main character, Mary Maloney. In the beginning of the story, Dahl describes Mary as as being six months pregnant, with big calm eyes. This displays a picture of innocence. The way she addresses her husband, Patrick, is caring and compassionate. As the story progresses she gets more and more uneasy until Patrick tells her very bad news, and the entire mood of the story shifts. Mary becomes removed, cold, in shock. At this point, she “simply walked up behind him and without any pause, she swung the big frozen leg of lamb high in the air and brought it down as hard as she could on the back of his head” ( ). Patrick died within seconds. Since the audience previously saw Mary as innocent and harmless, the audience is even more surprised by this sudden murder. By now her entire character has changed. She is cold, calculated.
Throughout World War II Anne Frank was kept hidden away in a 500 square foot building they came to call the Secret Annexe. Anne Frank, her family, and the Van Daans endured difficult times of hunger, thirst, and lack of privacy cornered by walls for over two years.

The grueling experience she was forced to undergo changed Anne’s personality from a energetic and silly schoolgirl to an insightful and sophisticated adolescent.
