Before this story I’ve read only books like Judy Moody by Megan McDonald, since we didn’t go to the library often nor owned a lot of books. This story made me realize that Judy wasn’t a too nice of a girl. I began to see more to book characters and to other people. I no longer took them at face value nor for granted. This book caused me to read more books with substance and less books about a moody kid with mood rings and dried cherries, not that there were many books like that.
When a young writer begins to gain interest in writing biographies and political figure this is a perfect book. Harness is so graceful in her writing, the way she can keep a book so simple, but still allowing herself to get the point across to the reader. Harness does an outstanding job in the way she only writes the important information of an individual's life. Harness does not like to write about little details about the person’s life, but instead just the significant parts. This way of writing would be great for a student in middle or high school writing a report or biography, using the K.I.S.S method, “keep it simple
He even states that it looks like something escaped, not left. Leaving Houston, for Paul, is a way to escape his past and and start over. Tangerine by Edward Bloor is a novel that I would rate at about an eight or a nine. It didn’t quite make a ten just because there were certain parts that the pacing of the book threw me off, whether it be everything happening too slowly or too quickly. Other than that I really enjoyed the book overall, and especially liked and related to Paul’s character.
After Arnaud asked for the remainder of Martin’s inheritance, Pierre seemed to have been highly offended which resulted in him setting out to prove that Arnaud was not Martin. Pierre’s hatred turned half the town against Martin. It may have even landed Arnaud in jail before Pierre had any real proof of Arnaud’s identity. In 1559, Arnaud was imprisoned after being accused of burning down the farm of Jean d’Escornebeuf. According to Davis, “in the course of [Jean’s] complaint – evidently tipped off by Pierre Guerre – he told the judge that the prisoner ‘had usurped the marriage bed of another man’” (Davis, p. 57).
Absolutely, because this book is extremely short and well written. Even if you don’t have a lot of time on your hands you can just read this short book in a total of just a few hours. But is this book good for studying world history? Definitely, I have never read any other book that talks about history in this type of way. Any other history books I have read talk about specific people that were important to some scientific and technological improvements, but rarely do they ever talk about history in a way that David Christian did.
He did not have to deal with as many hardships as other families and people had to, so his perspective as an onlooker looking on people struggle is the same view that people in the present have now. They did not live through the Great Depression, but they can understand Justice’s point of view as someone who also didn’t go through many trials. Justice’s words are an important part of history and leave a powerful impact on those who read
The essay was easy to follow nothing was confusing, but there were some repeated words and other experiences. Lacking the important facts and statistic can give the author a rocky boat, but what is keeping it up is that she has personal experience. To conclude, Dominus handled a lot and sharing her story with the readers is very bold. She has acquaintances who discussed their stories as she did in the essay. She had some facts that really didn't support her because there were no numbers.
This helped tone made the book easy to read, because it seemed like a friend was telling you a story, instead of a professor giving a lecture. Levitt’s arguments were also unbiased. He could have easily been biased and forced his ideas at the reader, but instead chose to present all the facts and let reader
People often have a solid mind set, that there is only one way to do things, but those people often barely scratch the surface of what they “want”. Critical thinking helps. “The Giver” is a very good book that offers perspective in its own special way that contributes to society in great ways. These sorts of books always relate to reality in one way or another, and never get enough credit. The reason we have history classes is to inform us and often make sure history doesn’t repeat itself.
The main question is why does dystopian literature appeal so much to the young adults, what is making dystopian literature so entertaining? Teenagers feel like they can relate or think, what if this was to really happen? The authors Ayn Rand and Veronica Roth promote individualism and selfless acts in the novels they wrote, but sometimes that is not always the best thing. After all these years, reading and writing dystopian literature is still
