Richard Preston does an outstanding job when making you feel as if you're reading about the apocalypse. One thinks to themselves throughout the course of the novel " This can't be real... This must be a script from an Alfred Hitchcock movie." These gruesome and violent life forms even scare experts such as Eugene Johnson, which would leave a bad taste in any civilian's mouth. I find that Preston's impressive use of figurative language and unique writing style made the work what it is, a brilliant piece of literature.

The writing style Roth likes to use involves lots of positivity, possibly even too much. Some critics claim that the topics could even be described as “common sense”. Critic Bashira said, “If you take to reading self-development books, a lot of his concepts--you'll realize--are hardly new.” Bashira does touch and expose Roth’s writing in a positive matter however, giving Roth the true credibility he deserves as a creative author. Bernard Roth’s story The Achievement Habit, included chapter two, “Reasons Are Bullshit”, which was a great chapter to give affection and impact on all the rhetorical appeals he ended up covering.
“Outlier: something that is situated away from or classed differently from a main or related body”. Though this definition seems to state what an outlier is point blank, it can only go so far in describing how this characteristic applies to a person. Luckily, Malcolm Gladwell goes above and beyond in expanding on the dictionary definition and describing what it means to him in his novel Outliers: The Story of Success. He challenged one of the most highly debated questions in the world- what makes people special?
The Most Dangerous Game. The old charts call it ‘“Ship Trap Island”. The amazing story brought reading to a whole new level, though literary devices and exceptional imagination the author create the most dangerous game. An exciting, unpredictable, and amazing short story.
Monster: The Autobiography of an L.A. Gang Member is written by Sanyika Shakur. This novel is about his life and experiences within the Crips gang in South Central Los Angeles.

His given name at birth was Kody Scott and at just eleven years old, Kody was initiated into the Crips after shooting a rival gang member and later earned himself the street name of Monster due to his horrifying acts of violence.

Warhol was thirteen years old when he watched his father slowly wither away from peritonitis for three painstaking days (Greenberg & Jordan, 2004). From the time Andrej passed away in the family’s living room, Warhol begged to stay with his aunt and cousin until the funeral was officially over due to his phobia of death. Instead of attending funerals, Warhol believed that they were too abstract and preferred imagining the people who died had simply went on a shopping errand. Warhol’s fear of dying is quite common among many humans that do not accept their impending fate.
Based on Don Quixote, fiction becomes the preferable reality and true reality itself becomes unnecessary. In this novel, fiction is the origin from where Don Quixote 's knightly characteristics derive from and the reason why he perceives the world differently from others. With chivalry books being the start of his knight errant ideas, he is molded into this delusional character who has an imaginative vision. For instance, Don Quixote’s first adventure lies in an Inn; however, “as soon as he saw the inn he took it for a castle with
In my English class I read the book called Monster written by Walter Dean Myers. It was about a young man called Steve Harmon who was arrested for allegedly being a part of a crime gone horribly wrong, which sadly resulted in a man losing his life. It also spoke about what Steve had to endure throughout that entire process of that trail. In the end even tho Steve knew that the crime will occur he still was found not guilty. I believe that Steve Harmon should have been found not guilty because, he did not give a signal and he also did not receive any part of the money that taken from the robbery.
