He is telling Miss Kinnian that everything is good, but when you really analyze the text, Charlie is only doing that so she will feel better. Another example of how he does not truly show that he’s glad he got to be smart is in his progress report on July 24th: “I dont know any work but the job I used to have at Donnegans Plastic Box Company. I dont want to go back there because they all knew me when I was smart and maybe theyll laugh at me” (Keyes, 304). Again, with evidence from his previous progress reports, his note to Miss Kinnian was just a facade, merely trying to make her believe that he was fine.

I thought I would be trying to investigate out who actually killed Christopher, but
I also like his adventurous side, Like adventuring further into the tomb just to learn more even more, though he knew how dangerous it was Evaluation I was pretty disappointed by this book.

In Grendel the author shows us a very captivating character. Gardner is able to show himself misunderstood, confused yet a very different creature.

To say this as kind as possible, George’s dreams were in an uncrackable safe and Lennie was the safe itself. Of Mice and Men, written by John Steinbeck, was my favorite story that I read this year. The characters were interesting and there wasn’t a lot of characters either, which I liked. I also enjoyed the plot twist at the end and probably wouldn’t have ever saw it coming if I didn’t have it spoiled for me. In the story, I found it ironic that the two people traveling with each other would be complete opposites of each other.

My favorite character had to have been Vera Clawthone because mostly she was the protagonist and that means that she was the main character in the story although I also liked philip lombard too.
