Abuse, chaos and bitter love are some things that are clearly seen in the film The Glass Castle (2017), through the Walls family. In the book Jeannette Walls, sheds light on how her father was an alcoholic and how he “brought” the family down with him. Jeannette is the closest one to her father and truly connects to him, and goes along with everything he does.

In Destin Cretons film version we see the hardships and pains of a troubled growing family.
The whole arch of this character as far as I can understand is to reflect how fanaticism can affect those involved in cults. Hoult, has been diversifying his roles in every movie he makes. Long gone are the days he jumped to fame from his TV persona. His participation gives the movie a balance on how the other side of the civilization is especially those that adore Joe. Other than that I really don 't understand why this character has that much participation after he gets separated from
After the main character, Mike Noonan, gets writers block from his wife’s death and continues to have it for years. He moves to the couple’s summer retreat in western Maine, at a lakeside house called Sara Laughs. “He also discovers that Sara Laughs is haunted and that his late wife, Joanna, still has something to tell him.” (King, n.d.). This haunting of his lakeside house is the horror aspect of the novel, and only one of the many problems the main character has to face. Mike Noonan also meets a young, recently widowed woman with a child.
In the beginning Macbeth was an honest and good person but after coming to know about his fate, he start killing people to get what he want and avoid what he don’t want to happen. In Act 1, Macbeth didn’t know about the prophecies and only did his job naturally so it didn’t lead to any disaster. When he receive the news he was happy to be thane of “glamis, and thane of cawdor!” (1.3.134) but he believe “the greatest is behind” (1.2.135) if the prophecies from the witches are true. Macbeth win the war and save the kingdom twice in a day so it only right he get promoted. This connected to the thesis because here Macbeth didn’t know about his fate before the war.
In addition to that, Odysseus is less merciful to others who have wronged him while Harry Potter, though he has suffered much, shows great mercy. Odysseus as soon as he comes home tells his son, “ I came to this wild place, directed by Athena, so that we might lay plans to kill our enemies” ( Homer 1080-1082). Odysseus had such vengeance on his mind that he would start planning as soon as he had come home, yet it seemed that he would spare not one of them, no matter how great or little their involvement. Harry Potter, on the other hand, could have hunted down the rest of Voldemort’s followers, but he left them alone to look for forgiveness and what is right. Finally, Odysseus was a great fighter known for his bow and arrow skills while Harry Potter was just a wizard.
The ending of In Cold Blood effectively shows the cruelness of death and how arbitrarily it chooses its victims. Nancy Clutter, a smart and intelligent young woman, had a full, eventful life ahead of her, and with the firing of a gun all that was gone. William Zinsser once said “good nonfiction writing should leave you one provocative thought,” and Capote’s in this novel is that life will go on,even after death. Even though Susan Kidwell Nancy’s friendship and future plans died the night she was murdered, Susan kept moving on and now attending the University of Kansas. Even though life brings you pain and suffering where it feels like the end for you, it too shall pass and life will slowly, yet surely, get better and that is the impression
. . . [I]f you have, as it were taken ‘a vow of poverty’, renounced control, and take your delight in things for themselves without reference to yourself, watching, observing, and to some extent knowing, then the question of the rights and wrongs of power might become utterly meaningless to you, and the means of power quite valueless. It is a natural pacifist view, which always arises in the mind when there is war.”5 He appears primarily in three chapters of The Fellowship of the Rings when he saves the hobbits from the Old Man Willow, gives them shelter in his house for couple of nights and saves them again from the barrow-wights.
From his survival, he proves to all the readers that he is not only a warrior hero but also a transcendent hero; he does not only on a journey for the quest for vengeance but also the quest to rid the land of danger as he goes through the five stages of a hero’s journey. Paul may never think that one day he would end up in Annie Wilkes’ house as a pet writer with broken legs and drug addiction but this is also the reason why he is a warrior hero. It all starts from Paul Sheldon, a writer who is famous for his novels “Misery”, almost died in a car accident until he meets Annie Wilkes, a former nurse who is also the devil figure of
There were many differences between the ending of the book and the ending of the movie. In the movie, Jonas had to pass a long pole to release the memories. The memories did pass through the whole community, and Fiona wasn’t killed. Though in the book, we never know if the community got the memories Jonas had. Also in the movie, Asher came and dropped Jonas into the river pretending he killed him, but in the book, Jonas had to hide from the heat sensor planes that were not controlled by Asher.
Stephen King’s “The Running Man” is a very tough book to summarise. There are many things that happen throughout it, but due to the nature of the situation, in the end everything around Ben Richards gets destroyed, causing many things that may seem to be key events to have very little impact on the ending of the story. The basic story, removing all of these elements, is that a man named Ben Richards is living an impoverished life in some random town in the U.S., and signs up for a death game called The Running Man to make a whole bunch of money so he can get his daughter’s pneumonia treated. The whole idea of The Running Man is that a man goes on the run for 30 days from the authorities and a group of people called the hunters who are chasing
