Tolkien’s mastery of the English language makes The Hobbit a pleasure to read. He describes the events so lively, that it seems the reader is there with Bils. It was a beautiful golden harp, and when Thorin struck it the music began all at once, so sudden and sweet that Bilbo forgot everything else, and was swept away into dark lands under strange moons, far over The Water and very far from his hobbit-hole under The Hill. And so are we. It proves to be an uncomfortable journey, with pouring rain and muddy tracks.
In the movie, he is dumbed down to a “girl-crazy ‘comic’ relief” (as stated by Wan, Book vs. Movie: The Lightning Thief). He has a few “cringeworthy” lines and “does what he can with [them].” Meanwhile, in the book, Percy accepts being a half- blood. He can’t do anything else. He and his demigod friend’s lives are constantly in danger, and that has been proven to him. He quickly adapts and finds himself on a quest to return the master bolt to Zeus.
Grendel was someone who the Dane’s believed to be evil because the Lord’s love was unknown to him. He was carried by emotion and whims and felt jealousy and loneliness. This had given Grendel similar human characteristics to Cain in The Bible. He wanted to be accepted by humans but they only saw a monster, a sinner, a demonic superhuman of pure evil. He felt like he would never get accepted and never live a normal life, so he decided to attack Heorot out of pure jealousy that was shown by Cain in The Bible.
Disney’s 1973’s Robin Hood is a story about the heroic adventures of Robin Hood and sidekick Little John. When all of a sudden the phony King of England Prince John deputized the Sheriff of Nottingham to collect taxes on the poor in the Sherwood forest. I particularly enjoy this movie because of the lighthearted events, hilarious jokes, and the sense of love and kindness coming from Maid Marian and the rest of the residents in Nottingham. Some reasons to support my claim about hilarious jokes is when Robin Hood and Little John trick Prince John by being female fortune tellers, and when doing so they strip the Prince down to his underwear and rob him of his jewelry from his own hand, his own robe on his back, to the money in his locked, and guarded chest, to the gold plated hubcaps on his carriage. Then after the Prince finds out he has been robbed they chased him down and in doing so the Prince flew out the back of his carriage and into the mud.
Prejudice is a major topic of the Harry Potter series. Lord Voldemort, the main villain, is introduced in The Sorcerer’s Stone as a wizard equivalent to Hitler, looking down on anyone who is not of a “pureblood” status. He is hostile to muggles and muggleborns because of his witch mother’s abandonment by his muggle father. The expressions "pure-blood," "half-blood," and "Muggle-born" have been coined by people to whom these distinctions matter (the upper-class purebloods) and expresses their prejudices. They treat creatures they feel inferior to themselves - the beasts, outcasts, or slaves - as second-class to human wizards.
First Tim Burton uses the element of suspense by showing us the ball rolling into the street and the dog getting it successfully. Although the second time… the dog is not so successful. A loud hit is heard and a low angle is seen on the car in the street, meaning that the dog got hit by the car. The next scene is a long shot on Victor in the cemetery crying over his dogs grave, his parents are there yet he feels isolated and alone. Victor gets an idea from science class to bring back his dog with the power of electricity so Victor goes and digs up his dog and creates this big giant contraption.

As they struggle to survive, they attempt to maintain order and govern themselves, only to be led astray by the darkness of their own hearts. The novel, Lord of the Flies by William Golding, serves as a brilliant metaphor of the loss of innocence and man’s innate inclination to evil. Throughout the novel, a certain beast is said to roam the island, terrifying the children. The boys became paranoid about this monster and sought to put an end to this beast. Simon, a quiet young boy, wandered away from the crowd and eventually went mad of dehydration.
The eldest son of King Dasharatha and heir to throne of Ayodhya must leave home, owing his exile to the cruel manipulations of his step mother, Dasharatha’s second queen Kaikeyi and her maid servant Manthara. Yet his role, in a more cosmic sense is more than just that of an obedient son of a just king. As the incarnation of Vishnu, the Preserver, he is fated to go up against and eventually defeat the powerful, malevolent demon king Ravana, a plight on Earth and in the heavens alike. Ram’s trials and adventures paint the picture of the perfect individual, unbendable, virtuous and indomitable.
People rule to guide Lyra through a lot of harms, dangers, and long journey to reach to the North and that was the knowledge. “In many ways Lyra was a barbarian. What she liked best clambering over the College roofs with Roger, the Kitchen boy who was her particular friend to spit plum-stones on the heads of passing Scholars or to hoot like owls outside a window where a tutorial was going on; or racing through the narrow street or stealing apples form the markets, or waging war.” (Philip Pullman, Northern Lights). He involved the Dust that considered as a key plot appliance in his novel. Came form the sky, and gather with adults.
