Jeremy seemed relieved that I had spoken. ‘She d-did Pa. R-right ‘fore y’all come, she did.” Jeremy’s actions in Strawberry show the reader that he is willing to not only willing to stand up for Stacey, but also his family. Although he knows he will get punished for engaging with them, he still protests because he is truly a good friend. On the other hand, T.J. is not willing to stand for neither Stacey, nor the Logans.
As Martel takes the reader back to Pondicherry, he describes Pi’s innocent and tranquil upbringings. He is largely influenced by God and his parents while he goes through a unique spiritual journey with numerous faiths. Furthermore, he was relatively naïve to the fact that animals – especially predatory – are extremely dangerous. Also, Pi doesn’t realize how difficult the brawl against nature and spiritual devotion can be until the lion’s share of the story begins when the Tsimtsum sinks. Paralleled with the second phase, Pi’s youthful innocence and inexperience with such devastating circumstances lead him to believe that he will be rescued soon and that his parents are still alive.

Jim, a runaway slave and one of society’s outcast members in Huckleberry Finn, portrays the admirable characteristic of self-sacrifice. Jim is a father himself and when Huck and Jim are switching shifts for watch on the raft at night, Jim lets Huck sleep through his shift often. This simple act of kindness greatly illustrates the type of self-sacrifice that Twain would want in his ideal person. Huck considers, “I went to sleep, and Jim didn’t call me when it was my turn. He often done that.
Huck now believes that this cannot be the case since he sees Jim having strong familial ties with his own eyes. This example of Jim’s release of the minstrel mask makes Huck gain a higher opinion of him. In chapter 31, with Huck and his letter, he stops to remember that night on the raft when he almost gave Jim away. Jim’s use of his minstrel mask made a lasting impression on Huck because he remembers those words Jim said to him, how grateful he was for Huck to save him, and how he’s his only friend in the

Odysseus was very prideful in the beginning, as he had to credit himself for blinding Polyphemus. However, Odysseus’s character is developed on his difficult journey home.

This quote shows how Odysseus must deal with internal and external problems throughout his quest and on Ithaca. His transformation in character is visible when he lets himself be embarrassed in his own home as a beggar.
Gabe, even though dead, was a very good character. He had a attitude and personality.

He has loved her through it all, but in the end she leaves him, but we all know that it was for the best.
These reviews I have seen are mostly positive. One of the reviews says it should be read and loved by everyone.(Jack London’s Naturalism) The review says this because the story shows a odd but lovable hero that in the end if he believes and tries his best in the end he can achieve his goals and live the life he would want to live. Another review says that it is really good but is not for young animal lovers.(Call of the Wild- Book Review) It says this because in the story the hero has to do some bad things like rip out other dogs or even humans jugulars to save himself or some of his new found friends, but in the end the review still says it is a really good book.
When the Warden first talked to Stanley, he acted very timid and scared, but with Zero, he knew what he thought was right and he’s more bold, to speak up now. Not only has Stanley become mentally stronger, but physically as well, which is shown when, “His body had adjusted somewhat to the heat and harsh conditions,” (Louis Sachar 131). His new character shows that his ongoing determination has channeled his inner-strength. On the first day of hole-digging, he felt as if he would die because of the same heat/conditions that he is now accustomed to.
After those incidents and finally talking to an inspiring and caring teacher, I realized my purpose for why I should still live my life and that everything will be okay in the end. Everything that I 've been through made me who I am today and I 'm very proud of how strong I am. But most people don 't know that side of me because I want to give out positive energy when I 'm around people even if I 'm falling apart in the inside. In conclusion cultural identity isn 't just about race, ethics and what your beliefs are.
The movie Shrek shows exaggeration through the characters of Shrek and Fiona. Shrek exemplifies exaggeration by pulling a large amount of earwax out of his ear to create a candle. The amount of earwax pulled from Shrek’s ear is abnormal to the amount of wax from a regular human. Shrek also takes a frog and turns it into a balloon for Fiona, and Fiona also picks up a snake and turns it into a balloon. Another example of exaggeration is when Fiona begins to sing with a bird and tries to sing louder than it.
