Bryce screamed. And the world, Edward’s world, went black” (165). As you can see in the novel, the short live relationship between Bryce and Edward seems the most saddening and heartfelt part of the Edward lifelong journey. In the short amount of time, Edward was able to discover new emotions and experience various things as he was Bryce companion and a rabbit
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. This is significant because Charlie seems to have lost his confidence in
Henry’s intellect and personality was the stuff that made him great. Even though Winston Churchill had rough starts he was able to accomplish so much and effect the world. Churchill had a miserable childhood in the fact that he wasn’t paid much attention to. Born to a wealthy family “the young Churchill experienced a neglected and unhappy childhood” because his parents didn’t love him (Commire, Klezmer 251). Winston as a child didn’t have a passion for learning “he loathed school” but he did learn the essential structure of English (Commire, Klezmer 251).
The day after him and Tom’s argument, Gatsby reassures Nick by believing, “I suppose Daisy’ll call,” (Fitz 154). The ignorant mind of Gatsby allows for him to believe after everything that happened between Tom and Daisy following the death of Myrtle, would let him still have a chance to win over Daisy. The pure obliviousness of this statement displays Gatsby’s unbearable optimism which will ultimately lead to his loss of Daisy and death. Gatsby had many gifts, but his most treasured is his, “extraordinary gift for hope,” (Fitz 2). The power of optimism is both beautiful and dangerous.

Compare/Contrast Theme Essay By being too greedy, you will probably end up with nothing. This is a good theme for both of the two fables, The Dog and His Reflection, retold by Tony Payne, and The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs, retold by Nicky Grischotti. In both fables, the characters are greedy.
This shows that Hans has had misfortune for a long time. However, on page 89, Zusak mentions Hans giving two books to Liesel for her birthday, buying them with rolled cigarettes. To someone fortunate, that may not seem like much at all; but to Liesel, Faust The Dog and The Lighthouse are thoughtful presents worth more than they may be worth to others.

Throughout the novel Victor and the Monster come across many relatable situations that they are forced to overcome. Victor Frankenstein had a very happy childhood, and he describes his parents as being “possessed by the very creature of kindness and indulgence”. Although Victor had a very happy childhood, these characteristics do not seem like the foundation of good moral character. Similarly Victor’s monster was not raised with the foundation of a good moral character. When the monster was first created he possessed more strength than he knew what to do with.
In many cases throughout the novel, Holden tells the reader of his feeling of deep sadness, and even admitting his depression. However, in most of these cases, his sadness is triggered by little events or situations. For example, when he explains his feelings about the phony Elkton Hills headmaster talking with his well-dressed parents, he says, “It makes me so depressed I go crazy” (Salinger 14). His feelings about the headmaster are interesting, because it shows that he overreacts and has depressive thoughts for little, unreasonable things which most teenagers at his age typically don’t experience. Also, Holden even considers committing suicide multiple times throughout the novel.
Most who read this book would not come close to thinking these actions were wrong only the numbers of people in Equality’s generation would think this. Equality’s childhood was limited just as every other person around him. Apart from a few minor distinctions from the regular drone Equality was seemingly regular. One immense difference that changed his life was his level of intelligence. This put him above others and he was punished for being superior in more than one way.
2) Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pies by Jordan Sonnelblick is a unique, heart melting, and a humorous book. At first I thought this book would be about an average boy and his “struggles”, but the more I read I discovered a heartwarming story with unique characters that’s well written. The story is about a boy that has a younger brother with cancer, while his parents are busy working or taking care of their younger brother they fail to see the problems and daily challenges that the older brother is facing. The story’s has unique characters that bring life to the story. For example, Steven is the protagonist, his jokes can cheer anybody up, and he’s well known as Pes (a nickname his friends gave him, short for Peasant), and he even shaved his
I read “Middle school: Mmy Bbrother is a Bbig Ffat Lliar” by James Patterson. The book mainly talks about what the title explains. On how having a brother that continuously lies on you and one who is consantly annoying you in any and everything you do. You would think since he’s older he would act more mature than what he does,but he doesn’t. At times it does show where they aren’t trying to cut each others heads off but them actually getting along, which is barely ever.
Ever since Allie was a small child, just the sound of the word Yankee, caused mild revulsion and a sick feeling in the pit of her stomach. From what she had heard from her father, Yankees were an intolerant, ill-mannered, and slightly ignorant breed; at least, that was his opinion of them. However, just the past Christmas, Allie had gotten to know one Yankee quite well, and he was not ignorant at all. Quite the opposite, Thomas Jackson seemed to be very intelligent. At least he was smart enough to win Allie’s heart and cause her to fall in love with him.
