The choices left for the suffering generation of this great war is, as they grow older, “few will adapt themselves, some others will merely submit, and most will be bewildered; - the years will pass by and in the end we (they) shall fall into ruin’’The significance of that message, given by the main character, was the warning the author tried to proclaim. The German generation of young men of late teens and early twenties, will grow up with only knowing war. Some will be so consumed that they would want the war to never end.

Mr. Dussel and I had another battle yesterday… According to him… nothing, is right about me… my appearance, my character, my manners. While he was going on about me I thought … sometime I’ll give you such a smack that you’ll fly right up to the ceiling” (Goodrich, Hackett, & Frank 165). One can see that a ceaseless amount of solitude motivates their bickering.

Or what would become of him.” (Lowry, 81) Following the announcement that Jonas will be the next receiver of memory, he moves to the next step in the hero’s journey: refusal of the call. Jonas becomes afraid and apprehensive about this assignment. Jonas even thinks of refusing this call.

Men live by what they get and what they have. At some point, they have to give up and see that the end is coming close, and for Ish that point has come and he realizes that civilization will be ending soon and there is no point in trying to continue it. Even if this civilization will end, Earth will overcome anything it faces, and it will continue to go on, withstanding all that comes across. Ish now only has dismissive memories, and he has come to the point where he is not in control of what he does, rather Earth has taken over and even without him there, it will continue to abide. Since the end has come, Ish decides to recall all that has went on since the start on his civilization, comparing himself to the earth and the hill, “‘But, no’ he thought, after a moment, “I must die as i have lived- by the light of my own mind, by what light it gives me… I know that the hills themselves, though men call them eternal- are too changing always.”(337) Changes in nature don’t have a cause or reason they happen, the earth goes with the flow and it adapts in whatever way it needs to, since it will continue going on.
First, the author delays an event the reader knows is coming. For example, the book states “I began to lift, but he moaned and went rigid, so I stopped. I couldn’t bear to hurt him. I couldn’t leave him either, and there was nothing to do but wait” (Riggs 32). This was very compelling because Jacob’s grandfather is about to die, and even though it is very obvious, the writer still delays it which draws the reader in.
Ethan never listened to the propaganda, which was to influence the opinions of the mindless creatures in favour of the Health Organisation. His work colleagues were constantly changing as they were always being taken away. Ethan had never thought too much into it, but now the picture was suddenly becoming clearer. As Ethan started his journey home through the polluted and rotting streets, he heard the weekly announcement, “Remember your compulsory psychiatric appointments tomorrow.” Ethan’s face fell; the unqualified, unintelligent psychiatrists always had the same two minute conversation with him. Now that he had suspicions about the Health Organisation, he knew that tomorrow’s appointment was not going to go well.
Having a miserable life, Winston had to just deal with everything and live day to day. After Julia’s confession of love, he suddenly felt as if he had a purpose and he needed to find a way to live his life in his own way rather than the party’s. The form of rebellion, love, played a major role in Winston’s revolt against the inner party. If Winston did not have the trait of curiosity, he would have never rebelled. Curiosity was a major part of this book and without it, 1984 could not be the same.
