He cannot be blamed for treating Lennie badly just from a few words throughout the book. Readers forget the fact that, not only did George take care of Lennie, but he also loved him with a bond stronger than friendship. It is clear that George has Lennie’s best interests in his mind, which can be seen in his use of harsh language, his silencing of Lennie, and his murder of Lennie. Transition here. George is often blamed
George does make mistakes concerning Lennie throughout the whole book, but he also attempts to fix his mistakes with acts of kindness. He is a relatable character in many ways, which makes him interesting to read about. George cares for Lennie even when he messes up, which is much like how brothers still care about each other even though they mess up. George and Lennie are the most like brothers that two men can be without actually being brothers. They care for each other, argue over the simplest things, and are usually willing to admit that they need each other.
(Steinbeck,1.93-95). This quote shows us that Lennie treats George with respect and that he wants George to know how much he means to him being around him, this shows how Lennie is a good
That makes readers feel bad for Derek, and gets them interested, and makes them feel like they are in the story. The Saturday Boy is an inspirational story that all readers will enjoy. Yes, the plot may be sad, but all that does is contribute to the fact that the reader should never give up and always be
This would be difficult, but he loves John and wants to protect him. Another thing I enjoy is Owen’s jokes and humor. He constantly lightens the mood with his clever remarks. I also love how confident he is. Although he is rather short and has a distinct voice, he is never insecure or bothered by it.
The Book Thief was one of my favorite books that I have read so far, the author, Markus Zusak used imagery and used foreshadowing to prepare the reader for more important events.The author switches from the first person and third person point of view and how it gave you different perspectives.In the book, there's a sad tone and some humor in the book as well. The author uses flashbacks to inform the reader of previous events.The author used the first person because he wanted to switch from character to character and to make the story more interesting.He uses symbolism in the novel and he did that, it made the story more entertaining and unique. In the book the main character is Liesel, her brother died and she was sent to her new home with her foster parents in Germany.The story took place in World war ll and the Jewish were getting killed by the Nazi army.One day a Jewish man came and took shelter in her parent's basement.She needed to keep the Jewish man a secret or he would get killed.She found love for books and use them for comfort and she gets the name the book thief because she took books that she found from anywhere.The author uses diction to create tone.In the novel, there's a lot of imagery that set the mood for the novel and creates an
This has nothing to do with the last page we ended on and it frustrated me throughout the book that this happened continuously. Overall,“The Hot Zone” is a very good book and I would recommend others to read it. I loved the detail that Richard Preston put into the book and how he made his point across very clearly about Ebola. He is a very good write and I am glad that I got a chance to read this book because it taught me about Ebola and other viruses as well. This is a very good novel and I am looking forward to seeing more of his writing or maybe even looking at others that he has already
In the book The Outsiders written by S.E Hinton has been and still is a favorite among its readers, the book focuses on group identity and individuality. I connected with the book because it shows how close friends can be, they can be almost family. Over time the character Johnny has developed, he became more brave and was willing to kill someone to save his friends and himself, he is intuitive, selfless and optimistic. Johnny thinks that there is still good in the world no matter what happens. Johnny often feels afraid, he doesn’t want to go home because of what his parents do to him.
This tremendously helps forms the bond between Wright and the audience because they now know exactly what he is thinking, so he cannot hide anything from them. They know that he was “frightened” by Mencken’s style, but yet “amazed” at the same time. Or how because of what he was reading, he “created a vast sense of distance between [him] and the world in which [he] lived.” The ability to progressively see Wright’s train of thought go from excitement to torture turns the reader to his main point of the passage, to believe that ignorance is bliss. Wright begs the question to his readers, do you really want to know something, even if it will ruined your thinking about that subject. The journey Wright takes them on through his first person point of view steers them down the path of believing some things are worth not knowing, and feeling sympathy for him because of his
The author really understood why Chris McCandless did what he did and that is why he was able to write such a good book about his life even with some speculation having to take place and even having to find the people that Chris talked to, to be able to piece the whole story together. In conclusion the author wrote this book to inform readers to follow their dreams and Chris is a prime example of this because most people quit when following their dreams get too difficult but Chris never did and the author has a huge amount of respect for him because of
The Princess Bride is an average book, meaning that there were interesting parts and some parts that were not engaging. I enjoyed how they included great detail when describing everyone’s live and what shaped them throughout time because it gives you an overview on what the character is like. Although I didn 't like how during the story when something interesting is happening, the author, William Goldman, would interrupt and spoil some parts, because as a reader, I like to find out what happens without having to stop in the middle of the story. Lastly, since I do not enjoy fantasy books, I did catch myself throughout the book zoning out because some parts were just not interesting and I didn’t like how the author would ramble on at some points.
