Deal with it.” (Cline pg.3), which in a way makes the story’s uniqueness skyrocket. What really sets the author apart from the others is his interpretation of Wade’s commentary. Ernest Cline’s portrayal of Wade was phenomenal, the perfect amount of humor, sarcasm, and game terminology, thus giving the novel an edge. Personal Response: I loved Ready Player One, it was the ultimate fantasy, dystopian novel, and it even had a slow growing romance amongst to characters. I wholeheartedly would recommend this novel to any and every one.

Fans of the Impossible life, as the summary suggests, is a story about friendship. I have to say that I really loved this book because of that focus, sure there was romance, but the central story was the journey three individuals went through on the road to becoming friends and remaining that way. This book will make you feel things. It will make you cry, it will make you laugh (especially Sebby), it will make you question how much you know the people around you, and it will tear your heart into little pieces that you will never get back and you won’t want to. “There was something in me that I was afraid to show other people.
Analyzing King’s work, one can see how strong Lovecraft legacy is and will be. Reading both authors got me to a conclusion about horror novels and horror movies: Everything is connected to the most basic instinct of all, survival; and that the human being is not as powerful as we think we are. Introduction Howard Phillips Lovecraft was one of the greatest writers belonging to the last part of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. His style resembles to that of the Dark Romantics such as Melville, Poe, etc. whom Lovecraft said were an enormous influence on him.
With Stephen King’s many successful works, he has single-handedly changed the way people perceive the horror genre. People do not read King for just entertainment, people read King to face their fears. King writes from his personal experiences which is what makes his horror so thrilling because to a point, his writing is realistic. An article called Criticism of Stephen (Edwin) King states, “If someone in the future wants to see what American life was like, what Americans cared about, what our stories were in the seventies and eighties, they’ll read Stephen King” (2003). The article even claims that in 50 years Stephen King will be regarded as “the dominant literary figure of the time” (2003).

Words are an integral part of our daily routine – hence their immense power - they are used as a means of communication and a way to express our feelings, thoughts, and emotions. The world without words would see the end of poetry, waxing lyrical songs and libraries full of books; the world without words is surely inconceivable. I believe we can never take away the power of the written or spoken word. However, more often than we think, we tend to underestimate their powers. A simple misunderstanding of a person’s words and a deliberately ill-intentioned phrase can cause Lovers riffs, broken friendships’, and even outright war.
The reason for this is because of the use of the first-person pronouns “I” and “We”. By using a central narrator in the novel this allows the reader to read the character, in this case Holden’s, thoughts although this limits the point of view in the novel with respect to experience and thoughts. Holden is believed to be a reliable character but in fact he is unreliable with inaccurate judgement and in often cases lies to himself and by doing this lies to the reader simultaneously. Holden even says, “I 'm the most terrific liar you ever saw in your life. If I 'm on the way to the store to buy a magazine, even, and somebody
Why then read a text which is on its surface nothing like the world today? The answers to these questions are many which will be answered in the course of this book, however all of them can be distilled into one word in particular: pleasure. It would be difficult to name any one single work of literature which offers a range of pleasures that one experiences while reading The Canterbury Tales. From the aesthetic pleasure of reading (preferably aloud) some of the finest poetry ever written to the belly laugh of slapstick comedy, the text is a
Existentialism is ubiquitous, it is not just a school thought. Existentialism is a philosophy that enhances the way people envision their own views of reality, the choices humans make, and the results of what they have done. As humanity evolved, various authors dove deep into the pool of literature and composed various novels that opened the eyes of various readers and taught them that their is more to life than what they already know. Existentialism had themes that shattered the glass of readers who thought the world was wonderful and perfect, and opened their eyes to how people are alienated by appearance or actions, witnessed how a certain problem clouded the main character’s mind with fear and anxiety, and the free will of making a choice that could help or harm more than just the main character. Albert Camus and Franz Kafka wrote novels that describe those three themes of existentialism and how they impact the characters they wrote in their stories.
