The book was suspenseful; it kept drawing me in for more, each and each day. The book really enlightened me because the suspense and action kept my mind thinking and racing with thoughts that I thought I could connect to the book and make predictions on the future events in the book. The themes between my paragraphs were basically saying you have to look at the bigger picture of the story, just like Thomas did in the maze. The theme of my essay correlates with my title. What I mean about ‘running the maze’ is that to get through the maze you have to look at the bigger picture and find a solution.
After watching The 39 Steps (1935), I realized that Alfred Hitchcock really did have a talent for establishing suspense through films. Even though suspense was the primary focus, Hitchcock managed to effectively and intelligently mix humor, romance, and thriller. He uses a variety of techniques to convey these feelings to the audience. According, to some of his interviews with Francois Truffaut, Hitchcock mentions his love for The 39 Steps, specifically about the techniques he uses to create a bewitching experience throughout the film. In this film, he uses a variety of themes that he continued to constantly use throughout his later films.
This critical response will be comparing, and contrasting both stories by making points such as, how the stories fit into the science fiction genre, the characterization between Eckles and Jeremy, the theme/message of the stories, dialogue, and writing style. The science fiction genre fits into both of the stories because of the technology, settings, and events that take place in the stories. The Sound of Thunder fits into the genre because of the time travel machine, the dinosaurs, the date it takes place, and the chaos theory and paradox concepts. The Nethergrave fits in the genre because of the virtual world controlled and presented by Magus, who seems to know everything. The virtual world also seems to have great “graphics” if not realistic, and how main character physically entered the Nethergrave from his bedroom.
The Andromeda Strain will make the Black Plague seem like child’s play. In an era of sophisticated technology, science-fiction disasters are at an all-time level of relevance. The Andromeda Strain, though 47 years old, remains a thrilling and gripping story. Although the story revolves around a technically and scientifically-based plot, Crichton does a great job making the story understandable to all audiences. Because of this, his writing style has proven to be timeless, attracting readers of all ages and
Susan Sontag, an author of the essay “Imagination Disaster,” explores the world of science fiction as she discusses the tropes in films from the mid-1900s. Throughout her essay, Sontag analyzes why these types of films were created, and basically ties her discussion with humanity. With the growing technological advances, science fiction films state specific things about how science threatens humanity. She also ties her discussion to how sci-fi films tend to serve an attempt at distributing a balance between humanity and the technological world. Sontag claims that science fiction films has suspense, shock, surprises, has an inexorable plot, and how they invite a dispassionate, aesthetic view of destruction and violence.

Be that as it may, this gives us a photo of the sorts of identities included, for example, an especially the tale about Kravis and Roberts shrewdly compelling Kohlberg out of the firm. The level of subtle element that the authors go into for the arrangements and valuations is amazing and gives readers understanding into how these abnormal state strategies operate. Unfortunately, having read more about today's organizations and their strategies, very little appears to have changed from that point forward. A tremendous, immersive adventure that is part narrative, part novel, "Barbarians at the gate" merits its numerous
