He’s already dead in Doug’s eyes. What people experience in childhood affects them into adulthood. Firstly, Doug randomly woke up on his 48th birthday and decided he had to kill Ralph. Doug lying next to his wife with children of his own sleeping in the other room woke up and decided that he “will arise and go now and kill Ralph Underhill”
Larson definitely accomplished leaving their legacy in the book. He was very descriptive and used good, vivid details to get the point across. In my opinion, I think the book was very good. I’m satisfied with the ending because Holmes finally was arrested for his crimes and I think he deserved that.
Douglass describes it as being good for his “soul”, meaning that the raw emotions he felt were so positive that they helped nourish the very core of his being, the thing that makes him who he is. That teaching his fellow-slaves was the most delightful thing he has ever done, even after he escaped and became free, there was nothing that could compare. Douglass was given the satisfaction and glee of knowing that at least some of his fellow-slaves learned to read, that they too might have this feeling of exuberance in teaching their own friends. So, the spread of knowledge to his brethren was not only good for Douglass and them, it was also good for all who were in bondage, for, the more slaves that educate themselves, the more slaves there are that will have a chance at escaping from bondage.
Peter steals several hundred thousand dollars from his company with a computer program that was supposed to take a fraction of a penny from every transaction. The second he looked at how much he actually stole, he feels wrong about it and wants to turn himself in.

This causes a lot of confusion and made me easily forget about things that previously happened in the book. This has nothing to do with the last page we ended on and it frustrated me throughout the book that this happened continuously. Overall,“The Hot Zone” is a very good book and I would recommend others to read it. I loved the detail that Richard Preston put into the book and how he made his point across very clearly about Ebola. He is a very good write and I am glad that I got a chance to read this book because it taught me about Ebola and other viruses as well.
Also this book was easy to understand and did not take too long to read. At the end of the novel Gene explains that Finny was different because of his lack of fear. I liked this ending because it is interesting to read about a teenager that has no fear. For the text to text, text to self and text to world connections are all kind of similar in this book.
Jack too betrays someone close to him: his father. Though he did not know Judge Irwin was his father at the time, Jack spends months “digging for what he Judge dropped” (Warren 5.71). As a result of Jack’s findings, the Judge kills himself with a shot “straight through the heart” (Warren 8.488). Cass Mastern and Jack Burden both somewhat directly kill two people very close to them as a result of their deep
As a reader I found Barrett a more engaging and likeable character than Taylor. That said, if an author can make the audience dislike a character then that shows strong writing skills because clearly that was the intent. Barrett is always quite optimistic, given the rough circumstances he finds himself in. He is always looking to learn more about wherever he is and intrigued by how modern things work. Barrett is an innocent character because he comes from an eco up-bringing sans the crass commercialism that Taylor
Because this story is about his father, Aaron did a fine job making this story seem very personal and he filled it with emotion. He spoke very fondly of his father, and thus, the reader was interested in finishing. I know that when I was reading this story, I wasn’t bored at all simply because it reminded me of my own father, whom I also think of very fondly. Despite these positive thoughts of the story, there were a few issues that could’ve been addressed during the writing process. These issues weren’t drastic enough to make the story hate worthy, they were just small things that people notice and take account of.
Montag laughed, “That’s against the law” (14).These quotes are truly showing us that Montag had loved his job and he was respected about it at the beginning of the story. Montag eventually stopped burning books. He realized that books represented people’s ideas and their own experiences. Then he strongly decided to learn from the books. ”I want you to teach me to understand what I read “(255).”He reached under his pillow.
He’s a sinister he kills and buries people at his house. “At least that’s what we think says Juliet”. Later that night, The man shows up and hits the group of friends in the head except Samantha. He unties Samantha and he says “Honey i have missed you all these years, I am very sorry to have left you.
In conclusion, Before You Go is a great book with a great storyline that will keep the reader reading for hours. The storyline isn 't the only factor that created such a great book. The theme and mood also played a big role in creating the book. Even though the book is great, there was one flaw that I believe should have been fixed. Despite the book being so small the author did an amazing job writing the story.
