The novel begins at a slightly slow pace, however this is done extremely deliberately. Fforde is able gives us a real taste of the world Eddie and Jane live in, and takes the time to thoroughly develop the characters. As a reader, you are able to relate to the characters, especially Eddie, whose actions and thoughts are easily understandable even though he lives in a future society completely different from our own. He’s middle class, curious, determined and courageous. His eagerness for explanations and his smooth acceptance of the truth behind the lies of the Colortocracy is captivating as we are swept into the same curiosity that he possesses.
None of these words are particularly difficult yet at the same time they give off an air of knowledge. The words “intricate”, “intriguingly”, and “specialized” really help to show how the diction of a sentence really affects the manner in which the audience receives it. These words are understandable by most but allows the audience to feel the enthusiasm and respect Bryson has for this topic. Bryson’s specific choice of words, along with his
The use of language throughout the essay shows that she knows what she is talking about while making it easy on the reader. Even though the diction isn’t the juiciest I have seen before, she is able to get her point across easily while being able to keep the audience’s attention throughout the whole essay. All of this ultimately comes down to her strong use of ethos and logos to get her point across in this essay. She relies more on statistics and quotes from outside sources to present her argument which ultimately makes it much more effective. Her credibility is established in the first paragraph with her use of the statistic in the first sentence which makes it much easier for her audience to listen to her and agree with her
There are a lot of arguments for and against residential demand charges. Matt Lehrman did a very good job of providing and evidence based article that was both educational and also persuasive. He did a very good job of using logos and ethos to help his argument. Furthermore, he avoided fallacies which made his argument and logic even more solid. He writes his article beautifully and it reaches his target audience with language that is technical enough to explain his argument while not being overly complicated and easy to
The consistent appeal to the audience and their relationship to the MLF affirms their belief that he is a reliable source- and Wallace makes sure the audience understands he knows his own biases and misunderstanding in both the main portion of the essay as well as the footnotes. Footnote 6 is particularly important for judging the ethos of the writing. The audience sees the clear bias in the observations but rather than ignore his own preferences, Wallace explicitly states why he holds these views and that the audience should be aware of this, strengthening the trust between author and audience. He also uses the footnotes to build his own understanding and awareness of the topic. The footnotes serve as a both a break from the essay,
Although, Rand’s writing captures the reader easily because this is written as sort of a collection of thoughts from Equality 7-2521. Rather than a story, the writing can be almost like a pile of jumbled thoughts put together. However, the way it was written worked for the book; as you see through the character 's head, and were able to experience and read his thought process as he examined himself as a community of people to finding himself as an
This book spent a great deal of time on those relationships as opposed to the events plaguing them which may cause confusion as to the actual premise. No / Yes Yes As a reader, did you enjoy the story? The story is enjoyable, despite the need for some improvement. No / Yes Yes Are there any confusing sections that need to be made clearer?

The diction is significant because the phrasing allows for a smooth reading which is consistent with Meursault’s simple personality and oblivious nature. This discussion inspired me to look into other versions of this novel with different translators, specifically Stuart Gilbert’s edition.

Bergesen brings together the essential Qutb for the interested reader and presents it in a proper manner. Because Qutb 's writings are so voluminous and for the most part repetitive, Bergesen has done a much-needed selection that can give outsiders a sense of the importance and influence of Qutb 's thinking without having to read them all.
