Levitt and Dubner style adds an extra effect to the book. Through multiple rhetorical strategies, the authors are able to create friendly, but persuasive writing style. The authors really used the pathos, logos, and ethos strategy when creating Freakonomics. The pathos appeal was mostly done through humor. In almost every chapter, some kind or joke or funny story was told to set the picture.
As well as the value of a human life during these times of war, but the insanity of war and Heller 's solution to insanity is the idea of "there is always a catch" in life is shown to a dramatic extent.

By manipulating the war setting and language of the novel Heller is able to depict society as dark and twisted.
Janie had never had the opportunity to learn how to shoot a gun and doing so was an activity that she enjoyed and therefore she did it every day out of delight. In Janie’s past relationships she had never really gained new skills that she enjoyed using, Tea Cake gives Janie the chance to try new things and gain new experiences unlike her other husbands where she did only what she was told.

This quote had a connection to him personally because he actually fought in the war for his new country. Due to Isaac experiencing first hand the effects of the war he was able to put the true horrors down in paper such as ¨The deep thunder of a drown-out shout reached them (pg. 107)¨ which describes the tragedies in war zones. “After all, the essential point in running a risk is that the returns justify it (pg. 136)” this connects to the US risking losing everything by throwing a helping hand to the allied powers.
Tim O’Brien never lies. While we realise at the end of the book that Kiowa, Mitchell Sanders and Rat Kiley are all fictional characters, O’Brien is actually trying to tell us that there is a lot more truth hidden in these imagined characters than we think. This suggests that the experiences he went through were so traumatic, the only way to describe it was through the projection of fictional characters. O’Brien explores the relationship between war experiences and storytelling by blurring the lines between truth and fiction. 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.

When the Tin Soldier first saw the ballerina he fell in love with her. “‘That is the wife for me,’ he thought; ‘but she is too grand, and lives in a castle, while I have only a box to live in, five-and-twenty of us altogether, that is no place for her. Still I must try and make her acquaintance.’" At evening when all the other playthings came to life, he stood full length on the table so that he could see her.
She goes on to talk about the beautiful shirts she bought him that he never wore. Her lack of positive examples combined with her overcompensating, caused her to treat him like a possession yet she never questions him in efforts to not cause trouble just as her mother taught her to as a child. She also admits that she talked about herself mostly and later realizes the error in
I didn’t really click to a certain group of people I was friendly to everyone and got along with people pretty well regardless. Until one year, I had become pretty close to one of the most popular white girls in the school. She was genuinely nice to me; we bought each other Christmas presents and everything. I had never considered her race until I noticed how she and her white friends would get away things that anybody else would get in trouble for. At first glance it didn’t really bother me, it was unfair, but I never thought much of it until one of my black friends showed me how consistent it had become.
