Author David Benioff, of the suspenseful novel City of Thieves, does a remarkable job at developing the witty, humorous, brave, and optimistic character known as Kolya. Kolya begins this novel as an unlikable and unpleasant character but gradually redeems himself by displaying more admirable traits. Throughout this intriguing novel, despite his arrogance and frequent reckless behavior, Kolya has proven to be a very likeable and sympathetic character. Kolya’s initial appearance and encounters with other characters reflect negatively upon his character as they show him to be exceedingly arrogant.

The birthmark seems good to many people but not for his husband. The author in this way wants to say that the thing that when some do not have a thing then he likes that but when we get those things, then we do not feel comfortable with them and we want some improvement. Aylmer is the philosopher and that is why he always thinks the things should be just perfect.
The first chapter was a little slow but was a key element in what the book needed because it introduced the main character and his grandfather and the wonderful relationship they had.

Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia-Marquez seemed as an unusually confusing book on the surface, but after the discussion, the book started to make sense.

If he were to not overreact, he would’ve gone away with it. Nevertheless, this is the crucial life-changing action he decided to take, only in a negative way. A first-person narrator is vital to the plot of “Tell-Tale Heart”, and its perspective is as if the author is the main character of the story.
