I did not find myself to keep wanting to read this book. The author though did have some good humor at some parts. The author failed with the plot. I felt like it was all over the place. It was little stories in one big story of Calpurnia’s life.
Change in the plot events and setting such as the death of Phineas, along with Gene’s emotional appeal are totally ruled out of the film, making it difficult for the viewer to enjoy. Peter Yates has captured many key points from the original novel of John Knowles A Separate Peace, but has left out some vital fragments of the narrative. Therefore, the film should have fewer moderations, keeping the viewers pleased plus having the original storyline still
To me that lack of experience was very apparent. The scenes that described the act of cutting seemed superficial. Callie’s thoughts while cutting where mainly of how good it felt. There was no exploration of the mental burdens it caused or what really pushed her to this in the first place. Cuts by Patricia McCormick really could have been a powerful book that pushed teens to seek help.
The dynamic system theory was able to show that he may be having difficulty adjusting to the new situations, such as living with a different person at a new home, which is resulting in distress and misconduct. With this information, it is clear that Charlie requires support in becoming accustomed to the changes occurring in his suprasystem, specifically his family. On the other hand, the limitation of the dynamic system theory is the fact that it is incapable of locating the change that had the most influence. For example, having more contact with his aunt, Eleanor, may have had little to no influence since he has known her since birth, and she would be his primary caregiver when Eloise was incapable of giving Charlie the proper attention. However, it is possible that Eleanor has different house rules and expectations that Charlie is not accustomed to.
Cornman Mrs. Lazor English 9GH, Period 2 Due Date 28 March 2018 Catch-22 Joseph Heller Realistic Fiction 08 February 2018 – 12 March 2018 453 Pages 7/10 because the novel was not what I had in mind when I initially started reading the novel. I had expected the novel to be very serious, but the novel is more so funny but subtle. The novel had some serious parts but did not meet the expectation I had at first. If the novel had been more serious, the novel would have been immensely more interesting. Other than the somewhat humorous parts, the novel was interesting and fascinating to learn more about World War II.
If i had to write one, it would probably be called Data, Kittens, and Puns. It certainly wouldn't be a very interesting book, but it would still be a book. The book would mostly be made up of data and puns about said data or other things. Writing a book would certainly not be for me hi I enjoyed
When I first read the story, it was very slow. The way it started in the first chapter did not really catch my attention, and it is also because I am not into war stories. Usually when I read books, it would immediately catch my attention, in which this book has not. Another key factor that I did not like about this book is that there should be more fighting scenes, or more experiences. A good fight scene between the soldiers and the Vietnam people would have catched all of our attention, because everyone likes a good fighting description.
Taking Prozac was temporarily effective, while on it; I could feel my thoughts changing, like literally feeling my thoughts change from morbidity to bliss was unsettling to me. It is a frightening experience, not knowing if thoughts are really yours or if they are simply produced by medication. When I stopped taking Prozac, I did not know how long it would take for it all to be out of my system. During this time I did not socialize with anyone, in fear that the words spoken or actions taken were not fully my own yet. This quotation from Ralph Ellison’s novel, Invisible Man, best illustrates my rationale after ending the use of Prozac: “When I discover who I am, I’ll be free.” I had to find myself again, even though ‘myself’ included dysthymia and being misunderstood, but I was okay with that as long as I could think for
This novel was so incredibly out there with its tone, characters, and setting that any attempt to even slightly recreate something along the lines of it would be futile, and most likely blatantly not as good. Rare is it to find a book so unconcerned with the “rules” of fictional writing, especially one that is so well written and and successful in its excursions from conformity, causing the reader to be constantly questioning their views on reality and existence and of things that we only ever acknowledge as mysteries. There is a great existential tone throughout “Night Vale” that is perhaps perfectly represented through this quote: “Your existence is not impossible, but also not very
