I do believe and think that the ending of this novel is novel is satisfactory, this is because the main character got the true understanding of life, she decided to decide to live according to the will of God, the society accepted her and she was loved by both her family and her boyfriend Eddie who she later got married to. This novel is very fun to read. I can recommend this book to anyone to read because it full with a lot of lesion and it help me realized the true meaning of life in a good
I also agree with the opinion that suffering might never end, like the novel indicates through imagery at the very end. The author manages to combine happy moments with sad ones even though the sad ones takes the larger share. In addition, he accomplished his aim of having an audience that is glued to the book all along sine it is both engaging and informative. The author has a perception that the world is composed of more bad things than the good ones. This novel will be important to me as I explore the themes of post-apocalyptic fears and human struggles.
There were some positive things throughout the story. One example, is the author did a decent job of creating suspense. This means the author kept building on the main conflict that kept the reader interested in the story. For instance, in the story, Kyle locked Cameryn in his chicken coop and threatened to hurt her. However, his tactics kept in question

Although the day was undoubtedly tragic, life for Meredith Hall will soon be free from suspicions about her husband’s faith to her, his moodiness, and the fights they endured.
Mary genuinely loved and cared for Patrick and would never intently plan to kill him with hatred. When she returned from the store and saw her adored husband dead on the ground, despite how Patrick mistreated her, “no acting was necessary” when
The reality of the situation was that she had no control over her father’s death. There was nothing or no way that she could have prevented the events that took place. Although she was extremely angry with the situation at hand she learned that she had other things to be grateful for. She wanted people to know that even though something or someone has passed away you can’t stay stuck in the state of depression forever. You have to step back and look at your life because the reality is, life still moves on.
Raymond Carver is said to be one the most influential American writers and poets in the 20th century, especially in his works of short stories. One of his most famous pieces is “Cathedral.” This well-known short story is the final piece in Carver’s collection Cathedral published in 1983. Carver includes much symbolism through the story’s plot, structure, point of view, tone, and character build. The depictions of each character’s experiences, the irony in the story, and hearing the narrator’s point of view in “Cathedral” work in harmony to support its themes that prejudice and ignorance as well as the nature of reality are present and change throughout the course of the story, and all lead to a strong character development by the close.
She wanted to make a connection with them, and leapt to the conclusion that the man who had nodded to her, a gift which she repaid with a brownie, must be the man they were mourning. His death was her ticket of admission. Again, she approaches the situation with a gift, this time of sympathy flowers. When language fails, presents cannot be looked down upon.
Isabelle-Marie plays a key role in the upbringing of her brother as she destroys him physically by tormenting him in order to make him ugly. This is evident at the beginning of the book when Louise leaves Patrice and Isabelle-Marie at home alone. “By depriving him from food she could make pale and wan, and this creature who had never known the touch of misery would become her puppet, her own spindly puppet”(15) Unlike a proper mother who nurtures, loves, and cares for their child, Isabelle-Marie chooses to torture Patrice by depriving him of bread and making him starve. This leads to Patrice becoming sick and very weak, symbolizing that bread is a source of physical torture
I really liked the story because is a consciousness description of Granny Weatherall's thoughts on her deathbed, focusing particularly on her being jilted at the altar when she was a young woman. It seems clear that Granny has never really gotten over the incident even though she tells herself otherwise. She has kept it hidden from her children, and the shame and sorrow of the incident loom large in her final thoughts. Granny is so focused on her abandonment that she lets it overshadow the enormous self-reliance she has developed in her life. In the end, she feels abandoned by God in death just as she felt abandoned by her fiancé in life, but the evidence in the story suggests she is not alone at all.
Although the story may be a bit too complicated it tells a story that can be true and that can actually happen in real life. This story may also have a dark side too it. Anna Cayne did some things that we unforgiveable. She was basically a psychopath in the story.
