Some of the major differences, such as the changes in Jonas, Fiona, and Asher’s characters in the movie as well as Jonas’s escape, really separate the movie from the book. However, that is not to say that there are not plenty of similarities. The descriptions and portrayals of Jonas’s feelings about the Community, The Giver, and the structure of the Community are very similar between the two stories. While the similarities greatly outnumber the differences, some of the differences are very major and can change the story a

For my paper, I have decided to analyze the relationship between the main characters, Anna and Gurov, in the sorry called The Lady with the Dog by Antonin Cekhov. Firstly I will start with brief introduction of the story ´Lady with the Dog where the author of this novel describes the love story of two people who fall in love in conditions that were unacceptable by the inner world and which do not let them to enjoy the love of theirs. Both of the main characters are constantly looking for the escape from their private lives and suddenly, they find the ´´safe haven´´ in the arms of the other person. The author did not narrat this story of the lovers as a romantic one, on the other hand, their romance is based on the lies, secrets and denigration
He surrounds himself in a childish, ideal world where there is no evil and all is pure. This viewpoint becomes disastrous when the ugliness of the real world seeps into Aron’s life, such as Adam’s failed business attempt, and the realization that his mother is not only alive but is a prostitute. Aron becomes distraught because, not only is his mother alive and committing immoral acts, his father is a liar. When faced with the evilness of the world, Aron is unable to cope and make sane decisions, because his entire world and identity is a
Which explained why she had an affair and why Anse remarried so quickly toward the end. None of them loved each other. That is how I interpreted her passage while reading the book and why I rewrote her passage as if she did not enjoy her life because she did not. My mock style approach Faulkner’s style because in the first paragraph I wrote in that style because Addie explained the real reason why she married Anse and that being a mother was the worst for her. Faulkner wrote that Addie took him, however, I wrote that she only married him because of the house and farm while she did not have much and Anse wanted to marry her so she took the chance.
Additionally, on page 135, Holt writes about Zachary encountering Cal’s older sister, Kate. Cal and Zachary originally think that Zachary is going to be rude when Kate offers her hand to him, but Zachary surprises them by smiling and shaking Kate’s hand. This displays how Zachary was starting to evolve as a character, and accept others even if they are a little different from him. Zachary starts giving people a chance. Furthermore, on page 217, Holt writes, “Zachary’, the sheriff says, ‘it appears you made some friends while you were in Antler,’ Zachary looks at us-Ferri, Kate, Cal, and me-and smiles.” This shows how Zachary has evolved as a character, by accepting others for who they are, and giving people chance, even if he thinks they are different from
Based on this, Zach is constantly smothered by his family to the point that he misuses their trust to his benefit, such as when he “ate the slice of cake meant for the church bazaar” (Pg. 102). This lack of appreciation further leads to Zach’s rocky relationship with his father, such as when he “dumped Dad’s red toolbox in the river” (Pg. 103). It appears the father also notices Zach’s misuse of the love he received, but he makes the mistake of shying away from it until the climax is reached that Zach leaves permanently leaves the family.
