Alex kept finding the strength inside of himself even thought he was at such a disadvantage being little and only 14 years old. Another example of fighting adversity is the sheer fact of Alex being 14. Alex is by far the youngest spy and is often over thought during his encounters. Many people doubted his well doings and thought Alex was worthless but ends up saving thousands upon thousands of lives. After reading, Alex Rider by Anthony Horowitz I have understood that although we will be at many disadvantages during our life, we just have to face it and fight through it without complaints.
The next theme, rebellion, applies to Zachary. He stole money from wallets, dumped out toolboxes in his fits of rage and, crashed his parent’s car. His whole life has been him doing bad things and breaking the rules. The final theme is family. The family is slowly being torn apart.
Self, throughout the story Alex is continuously fighting the nectar away and is trying desperately to remember. He struggles with this throughout the book. Another is Man vs. Man, Alex faces Alice Panettierre after halfway through the book and is continuously tracked down by her. She is set on finding Alex and killing him and his friends. It started with her taking samples from Alex willingly and then later she betrays Alex and tells him she has to do an autopsy on him to understand how the nectar works.
Both lost their friends in different ways but they both still had a strong friendship. Another example for the theme to be friendship is in the book, “ Raymond’s run” she got close to her brother kind of like in the book, “ Bridge to Terabithia”
A house is not a home. A home is somewhere your heart feels content, a place where you feel safe. In fact, a wise person once said, “Home is not a place, it’s a feeling.” This particular theme of home appears several times during Sandra Cisneros’ novella The House on Mango Street. Cisneros uses indirect characterization to show that the main character, Esperanza, feels discontent with her house, and feels as if it is not really her home, because deep in her heart, deep in her mind, she feels that her home is somewhere else, and she feels lost. The first example of this theme being shown through indirect characterization is, in fact, in the fourth paragraph of the first page.
Here is a example of the theme from the book “He barely liked his family-and by family he meant his older brother. Tom.” The conflict is that Benny and Tom do not have a good relationship and have grudges against each other. If you hold grudges against your family or do not have a good relationship with your family, you will have no one to fall back on and you will be by yourself. Another example of the theme from the book is “Sorry, Benny- I forgot. Point is, you got family of some kind, right?” This example shows that you will always have some type of family, even if you don’t know
The theme teaches you that you should do dirty things to other people if you don’t want it to switch up and turn on you. If he had taken the time out to be patient and let his mom give it to him he would just have gotten a dime. In schizophrenia the mood was all based off anger between the couple, the house was just a bad environment for the both of them. The house crumbled and was tore apart physically, due to the lack of attention that it had from the couple in the house. The couple didn’t have respect from each other or didn't act if they were appreciative to one another just as it was in the poem Those Winter Sundays.
Both of Alexie’s parents were alcoholics, along with himself. Neither Alexie or his father was violent; however, they would go off on drunken binges. Alexie displayed these binges in his work, as he portrayed with the character Jackson Jackson in his story “What You Pawn I Will Redeem.” Jackson was a kind man but
Jackson gives off the theme when a person tells you something, it may not always be true, by using foreshadowing and irony. Foreshadowing is used by the author dropping hints in different parts of the story. She does this so that after revealing the revolution of the real troublemaker being Laurie you can look back at how the author provides evidence to support it. For example, on page 2 of the story, Laurie calls his dad an old dust mop and his parents never say anything about it and just go back to talking about Charles. In comparison to the resolution, it turns out that Laurie 's at home behavior matches the same description of Charles disrespectful behavior at school.
