Heather Hogue 9/28/2015 CRMJ 358-001 ECA: Shattered Summary The book I chose to read was called “Shattered” by Debra Puglisi Sharp and Marjorie Preston. It depicts Debra’s life and how she was kidnapped from her home in April, 1998. She was a loving wife to her husband, Nino, who died being shot by the kidnapper. She also has two twins who were in college at the time named Michael and Melissa. Debra was tending to her garden when she then goes back into the house and is hit on the head by the kidnapper knocking her off her feet.
As shown in the story the key by Nnedi okorafor. She tell a story of a young girl named fwadaus who lost the house key of her uncle’s house .After losing the key fwadaus decided to burn her hand so as to attract sympathy from his uncle who mistreated her . The story says “this fateful day, she lost something not so little- she’d lost the key to the house and she was terrified of her uncle‘s wrath.” and the story continuously say. “Only two weeks ago, he had beaten fwadaus for spilling a pitcher of milk. She’d fallen and hit her head, knocking herself unconsciously for thirty seconds.
Putting the true story aside and focussing on the novel and movie “in part adaption”, both were great for their own standards. In this sense I would like to categorize the book and movie with a historical fiction genre. Although I want to say the movie was better just because Leonardo Decaprio was in it. In my honest opinion, I don’t know why Decaprio won an Oscar for this movie rather than all the other amazing movies that he’s previously acted in, such as Titanic, or the Aviator. His acting is always great, but I think he won the Oscar for the sake of winning it, because it was due time.
The book was well written and really made you think about what happened during WW2. The movie was also good because it showed you what things looked like and gave you some imagery for each character. I would say I liked the book better but it might be because I read the book first. When I read a book and enjoy it then watch the movie and see all the differences it annoys me that they made it after the movie but it isn’t like the book in so many ways and I really enjoyed the book. Still I would recommend the book and movie to anyone older than 10 because it gets a little grotesque in some parts, but it was still a good movie/book with a good plot and was very enjoyable to read/watch.

Walter Mitty wanted a happy life and not a sad one. It showed what Walter wanted to happen in his future and what he wanted to become. It makes the story more interesting to see it in a movie instead of just reading it and picturing it in your head. I think that a lot of people will think that the movie is better than the book just because it has more to tell about, and it shows more of what is happening. The movie
He starred in ‘Good Will Hunting’ which was a great film and this lead to him winning accolades as the therapist. Which he plays the role of the therapist.

The book did an amazing job at character reveal as well as character development. With some books, it takes a reader a while to become enticed by the characters or by the plot. With Wild Seed, it did not take long for many reasons. The first reason is because the book was well written which allowed for myself to follow along without zoning out. Secondly, the book was up my alley because of its genre.
This was very effective as it was new to the time in which the movie was released. Due to the film’s critical success, Citizen Kane is found on majority of “greatest films of all time” lists this critical success is due to the films major advancements in cinematography and how it daringly addresses mutual social contexts. Citizen Kane enables students to develop an analysis of construction, context and language, and an analysis of how the features of the text contribute to textual integrity, in citizen Kane as the film is so richly layered and still relevant to a contemporary audience, this enables students to develop personal and intellectual connections within the texts. Deep analytical and critical knowledge of the text is demonstrated through its advancements in cinematography and dejectic message, due to the RKO giving Wells total control over the film. These reasons have impacted me and I personally believe that my study of Citizen Kane has impacted my life, in multiply ways and it needs to stay on the syllabus to enable future students to experience and receive the full benefit’s from module
