The book that I have read is The the White Sea, written by award-winning and best-selling author, James Dickey. This book was published in the year of 1993 by Delta. It is a fiction novel based on World War II. James Dickey was an American Novelist. He was born on February 2, 1923 and died on January 19, 1997.
He had trouble finding people to publish his works, but he eventually succeeded and had his first work published in a magazine. Some of his most famous works include “A Study in Scarlet,” “Rodney Stone,” “The Sign of Four,” “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes,” and “The Hound of Bakersvilles.” His all time most famous character is Sherlock Holmes. During his life, Arthur had a lot of influences that helped him in creating the wonderful novels that we know today as Sherlock Holmes. His mother was one of the biggest influence on his writing career because of the magical stories she told him when he was a child. While a child, he read Edgar Allen Poe stories which were a great contributor to his style of writing.
This Second quarter we worked on PRL’s, a class novel called “The Hobbit” by J.R.R Tolkien, and an Ellis Island packet. The PRL’s are based off of personal reading books we chose from the library and I chose “The Invention of Hugo Cabret” by Brian Selznick. With our class novel “The Hobbit” by J.R.R Tolkien we worked on three essays for this novel. And the Ellis Island packet, we analysed photos,videos, and writing. My two best Shared Reading responses are my Hobbit Tbear and Ellis Island talking to the text packet.

Fantasy is a type of genre that allows the reader to experience a place or world unlike any they have before.

As timely now as it was written 48 years ago, “The Outsiders” is a dramatic and enduring work of fiction written by S.E Hinton. Books such as “The Outsiders” have the power to affect readers’ lives and stay with them forever. Ponyboy’s life was not easy, he had it tough and he is very aware of that. But he finds ways to make it work. I really liked this book because it was like a “Blast in the past” sorta thing because we are reading a book about a 14 year old in the mid 60s, and he is talking about the issues he has and the differences between the two groups the Socs and the Greasers,we get a rare glimpse of a boy 's life in the 60s and we get to read a unique piece of literature which we can’t find nowhere else.
Huxley 2). This lineage of scholars who have excelled in the arts, sciences, and literature starts from Huxley’s grandfather, Thomas Henry Huxley, also known as “Darwin’s bulldog” (Blinderman and Joyce). After many years of work and diligence, T. H. Huxley became a professor and president of the Royal Society (Sansom), which is “a Fellowship of many of the world 's most eminent scientists,” one of the oldest scientific institutions to this day (“About Us”). The most prominent of T. H. Huxley’s children was Aldous Huxley’s father. Along with Leonard Huxley being a writer, he was also an herbalist (“Aldous Leonard Huxley”), following his father’s scientific path.
