Clearly, this book was a good classic novel to read. A large number of people think this book should not be a classic novel their personal opinions about the book are terrible and they don’t like the book in general. It is a classic because it was listed in the list of great books and many other people have thought of this book as a truly good book and would recommend it for others to read. The Call of the Wild by Jack London could be talked about for a long time because of the meaning behind the book and how many themes and messages are seen throughout the
Figurative language can help to make a novel even better than it is in so many ways. It makes the details in the story come to life for the reader and it creates an impression on the reader. Hosseini uses the different types of figurative language, like similes and metaphors, to display several different concepts in this dynamic story. In the novel The Kite Runner, figurative language is used to show the difference between Pashtuns and Hazaras, the war and fighting in Afghanistan, and the power that Amir and Baba have. During The Kite Runner, Hosseini uses figurative language to display how different the ethnic groups in Afghanistan are.
The use of symbols can be very helpful in bringing more change of conveyance in a piece of literature. When trying to explain something very big and complex, symbols are usually the way to go because it will make the understanding much more clear. They also are a way to communicate and enhance meaning of the main idea, strong conflicts or high emotions of a story. In the story, the conch is representative of civilization and the type of authority figure that the boys are used to obeying like an adult figure, and Jack’s hunters represent savagery as they hunt recklessly. These two symbols are some of the most important in the novel.
Which in the end resulted in a very unfitting demise for Gatsby and Myrtle. Nick is not an honest storyteller but he is a reliable narrator because throughout the story he has been judgemental towards others and not saying the full truth or truly giving the reader the satisfaction of knowing his feelings. In the beginning, he said this “In consequence, I’m inclined to reserve all judgments, a habit that has opened up many curious natures to me and also made me the victim of not a few veteran bores.” (Pg.1). Thus from the very beginning of the novel, Nick was stating he had to reserve all judgments but as the reader continues to read on this statement turns out to be false as he in multiple occasions judges a character such as Tom, Gatsby, and Daisy. Nick is a reliable narrator though he tells the full truth all the way to the end well at least to the reader not actually to the characters in the novel.
Though he was a master and generally considered a genuine in the field of literary art, he has also faults and limitations. He was a writer who was pleased but was not free from elements that exasperated his readers. Some of the elements that aroused such feelings are his occasional snugness and sometimes over assertive masculinity and by his alternate shifting from sentimentality to toughness. His work is also marked by an obsessive concern with violence and cruelty and a fascination for war and death. The irritating element was that he hardly used them to achieve catharsis of any kind but he seemed rather to be using these elements for some kind of sadistic satisfaction.
Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabriel Garcia-Marquez seemed as an unusually confusing book on the surface, but after the discussion, the book started to make sense. Though at the same time, the discussion only raised more questions about little details within the book. The first point brought up within the discussion was the changing perspectives was the most interesting aspect of the book. Because I am person that enjoys things being in order, I do not agree. The switching of perspectives made the book have a messy feel to it.
I didn’t feel good about this. I started doubting my ability to complete this task. It wasn’t the idea of writing a reflective essay which daunted me, it was the idea of reflecting on my life. I didn’t want to over analyse the choices I have made, since that usually results in not so enjoyable thoughts. Through some Olympic-level google searching I continued my search for an idea, however I ended up using an idea which had occurred to me right before going to sleep.
All in all, I think the book has a great story, but lacks a proper structure for the story at hand. Sebastian Junger, the author, did a fine job presenting the information he gathered, but also lacked the story structure and plot that a novel has. The book, The Perfect Storm, would have been much better if stuck to one storyline. Regardless of the written text, we still have to respect and appreciate these courageous men, who lost their lives in a true battle of men against
As the story progress, readers learn things about Dick that start to contradict his credibility, despite his buildup of being such a good character in the beginning of the story. Accordingly, one of the biggest contradictions about Dick is how he reacts after the car crash scene. The red eyes are what made most readers foreshadow about what kind of character Dick really was. No normal human being would have their eyes do that and not become enraged. This was the first clue that he was not normal in
