Even though it is saddening to put the book down and finish reading, it was a fantastic book, and really catches the reader’s attention. The book is aimed for young adults readers, but will be enjoyed by anyone who likes sad, heartbreaking stories. It can make anyone and everyone cry. The use of figurative language really helped support the book and make it better. The figurative language drew out each scene of the book perfectly, Drawing out the picture helps the reader feel the emotions of the character and improve the books quality, and the multiple perspectives helped improve the book too.
Morgan Cook Unbroken Book Review 1/16/18 Mrs. Campbell Honors Literature PD 1 “Unbroken” by Laura Hillenbrand was published in 2010. From the first chapter i was hooked. Hillenbrand’s imagery and style caught my eye and pulled me into Louie’s story with no hesitation. I absolutely loved Hillenbrand’s structure in this book and it was much better than others i have read. She did an absolutely wonderful job of creating this time period with just her words and it’s one of my favorite things about this book.

That is one reason why this is a great poem because almost anyone can relate to it. This poem also has very vivid images and colorful language.
Out of all the characters in this novel, Eva Luna, I enjoyed reading about Melesio the most. Throughout the chapters, he has brought the pages alive with his strength and determination to change the course of his life, and write the end to his story. Melesio, later referred to as Mimi, was the best friend of La Senora, and is a transgender woman, who later becomes a famous telenovelas actress. She also becomes a significant influence in Eva’s life by encouraging her to write down her stories. Not only did she become Eva’s good friend and roommate, but she was also the role model of determination and kindness that Eva needed in that stage of her life.
‘If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.’ These lines from Anne Bradstreet’s poem put light on her thought process vividly. It gives us an idea of how knowledgeable and educated she was, and how she knew the art of writing and how to make everyone fall in love with poetry.

Love believes that Sappho and Vivien both represent loneliness and isolation within the poem. But, “contemporary queer subjects” can better relate to Vivien because they are seeking other lonely individuals like themselves in the past (36). Vivien sought out someone like her by translating Sappho’s lyrics and interrupting it in a different way. However, the concept of remembering someone remained
What Misses. Matlock saw as the main goal of life was embrace life the way it was and love it.

Powerful emotions were shown in the poem ‘Nettles’ written by Vernon Scannell. Vernon shares his emotions on how dangerous little things can be. He talks about how painful nettles could be and express is feelings which he exaggerates. Then he goes on about the war which is linked to nettles in some way. In the poem of Sister Maude written by Christina Rossetti the emotions spread though out the poem is hatred and anger toward her and love and respect towards her parents.
Jane Evershed is one of those people that has the ability to speak through her artwork. This is a wonderful skill to have, as a picture is worth a thousand words. She speaks most openly to women, those who may or may not have endured the discrimination, oppression, sexual assault, and abuse from loved ones or society itself. Society makes it harder for women to accept themselves as they are. They come in all shapes and sizes, ethnicities and backgrounds, religions and sexualities.
With him my smile met my ears and I never felt lonely accept for those times where I wasn’t able to spend time with others. Yet I never really dreaded his presence. He always supported me, lent me a shoulder to cry on and did countless other adorable deeds that I never acknowledged. I felt like the most terrible person alive and would be extremely happy if the ground swallowed me up right then. I didn’t want to be tied down by him but a part of me wanted to believe that he would change himself to please me.
Other techniques that were used include hyperboles such as when the unknown hitchhiker also stated “If I opened my mouth it would spill out like a torrent of acid” (Page 24). The story also used the techniques of imagery where the hitchhiker described what their sister looked like “then the memory of Melanie’s grey face with the bruises around her neck and the dried blood in her hair jumped up to haunt me”. (Page 23) The writer, Sherryl Clark also used hook as she kept the reader guessing. Overall the story is very engaging to its readers, especially for those who don’t like long stories. Fresh Bait was one of the best stories that was read out of all of the Top Stories 2.
