The book was a mixture of all; horror, thriller, excitement. It includes a lot of precise description that makes the book very interesting and thrilling. I’m absolutely fascinated and amazed about all the descriptive phrases the is used to convey the image / point clearly. I have gained a lot of knowledge about viruses and how they can be transmitted from on person to another. I would absolutely recommend this book for all medical and non-medical students, since it includes medical and historical contents which will help students stay educated and
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
Emma, written by Jane Austen, ignites many ideas for the movie Clueless, directed by Amy Hecklering. These two classics show many similarities and differences. Many characters from the book Emma, resemble characters from the movie, almost “as if” the movie was loosely based on the novel. Although differences include time eras and clothing styles, many similarities exist including: both main characters living with their dads because of the loss of their mothers, their great wealth, and the dominant roles they play in their communities. Although, there may be similarities between the movie and novel, there are also some differences that occur.
The “I have a dream speech” by Martin Luther King Jr. given on 28th August, 1963 is one of the most acclaimed speeches in the history of US. The speech resonates in people’s minds and is a testimony of King Jr’s appeal to the crowds and his ability to lead people. The speech has been recorded in US history as a significant moment. The recordings of the speech are found online and the irrepressible energy in the voice of King Jr. reminds of the days when the Negroes were fighting for an equal status. Throughout the speech, King has used the power of his rhetoric to win loud applauds from the crowd.
He gathered them all up and divided them up into teams and gave them a set of clues to solve the puzzle which the answer was Berthe Erica Crow. Though there are many differences there are also many similarities. Between the book and movie there are many similarities. For example how Sam Westing still choses heirs to play his “Westing Game”. In the book and movie Turtle is still the one who wins the money of Sam Westing.
Even just by reading pages 5-12, I can tell that Ta-Nehisi Coates is a good writer because his essay is highly thoughtful and provocative, and the well-written narrative provides lots of powerful examples to depicts the racial struggle in the U.S. He told his son, “You must always remember that the sociology, the history, the economics, the graphs, the charts, the regression all land, with great violence, upon the body.” The concept of violence upon the body appears on every important point of my reading. This is more powerful than the examples of law enforcement and black Americans because it leads the reader to truly see the the fears provoked. He talks about how those who believe they are white are essentially doing the “theft” from the bodies of the black. By using example from the American history and some recent disputes between the police and the black, he seems to express hope, but then he realized there’s real hope.
While the book and movie have many similarities and differences, the movie was more effective in telling the story. To begin the movie scene was better, because the music and sound effects you really get to see what's going on in the movie and get a better picture in the movie than the book. “Somebody kicked me hard in the ribs and I yelped in spite of myself. some soc had knocked me out one of the four bunched and was kicking me as hard as he can.” In both the movie and the book in this
Every time it we read it I never wanted to stop because it was so intriguing. The book had a lot of details, which is good, because that helped the readers picture what it was like. The author did an amazing job at writing this book. I felt like I was there. In the book, Dally’s death was very different then what I imagined and what happened in the movie.
Lockdown by Walter Dean Myers is a novel that will keep you on your toes. Inspiration, courageousness, nervousness, and depression are all the emotions you feel while reading Lockdown. A topic based around someone making a mistake and ending up in jail isn’t easy to digest, but when the prisoner is only fourteen it’s unbelievable. While reading this book it was quite obvious Walter Dean Myers arranged a lot of research for this novel, it was written very well and full of facts. Hearing stories of gang violence, drug abuse, and shootings is a big wake up call for anyone who interprets this novel it reallys make you realize how grateful you should be for what you have.
After reading the invigorating and richly textured novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, it is evidently established that symbolism is dredged in depth throughout. Although most illustrations in fact are inferred, such symbols are somewhat apparent and exemplifying. For example, the knothole, or a hole in a piece of timber, is one of the key symbols in the novel because it constitutes a connection or relationship between Jem, Scout, and Boo. In the novel Boo distributes several relevant objects to Jem and Scout by placing them in the knothole, instead of verbally communicating. As everyone in the county believes Boo is actually insane and violent through passed down uncivil rumors.
Her work often depends on tons of information that is already made available through published work and her archive research may be limited. This book is accurate and gives excellent details into the sung and unsung heroes of the Civil Rights Movement and their arrest which at times was consistent. The theory which Colley has developed draws on the arrest and climate in each of the communities during the time. It is these factors along with the resources left behind that help to drive home the context in which these arrest were made strategic. This text is amazingly written and allows for a clear and concise tell of the arrest and jailing and how they meant for this brief period of tribulation to become a tool and catalyst for
A book and a movie are similar and different in many ways, for instance, a movie is a visual representation including audio, while a book leaves you with reading and imagination. In most cases your imagination prevails the limited visuals a movie offers but, I believe that the movie tells this survival story better. In this case we are comparing Hatchet (the book) and A Cry In The Wild (the movie) , and frankly, the movie’s visuals depicted a lot of things better. My first reason is that we know lots more about Brian Robeson’s life before the deadly plane crash. We knew clearly that he had a loyal mom and dad that lived together.
Mood gave the novel tension, surprise, and sadness which help make the novel more interesting and a meaningful theme. Imagery in the novel created a unique sense of language and created better images of moral courage of the characters. Harper Lee’s theme of moral courage in her novel To Kill A Mockingbird can be compared in reality in the same way. In reality, most people are treated unequally and the history of slaves are both compared with similarity in the novel. Moral courage can be anywhere, like in books and even in the real
Dr. Seuss was a childhood hero. From Green Eggs And Ham to cat in the hat, every child has enjoyed his books. Dr. Suess, while his stories are silly, they also teach valuable life lessons and also can be based on real life situations. For instance, The Butter Battle Book is based on War. the reason being is because the long wall in the Book is based on the Berlin Wall, as the Yooks and Zooks are to the United States and Russia.“The ending of the book is a cliff hanger and it forces to think about ourselves”, as it says on ("Shmoop.com").
