There are parts of the book I found very interesting and parts that I feel may have gotten lost in translation. Overall, I would not recommend this book to someone who is looking to further their academic knowledge on the subject, but instead to someone who takes interest in this particular place and time, and would like to be informed on minuscule details of the day to day
He has much self-doubt about it which prevents him from wanting to express his love for Roxane. He believes his nose prevents him from even being loved by an ugly woman. The plot was lucid, maybe because it’s a professional play. It was very clear and understandable to what was going on in the play. The introduction to Cyrano was very interesting.
He even states that it looks like something escaped, not left. Leaving Houston, for Paul, is a way to escape his past and and start over. Tangerine by Edward Bloor is a novel that I would rate at about an eight or a nine. It didn’t quite make a ten just because there were certain parts that the pacing of the book threw me off, whether it be everything happening too slowly or too quickly. Other than that I really enjoyed the book overall, and especially liked and related to Paul’s character.
This mood was not consistent throughout the entire novel, due to the fact that Suze changes as a person, as well as many other changes in the book. The overall mood of the novel showed that the author’s ideas and direction of the book was to simply give a realistic story that showed what life was like for some people during this time. My final opinion of The Green Glass Sea is that it’s a good story if you’re interested in things related to the past. Things that occur in this book can definitely be relevant to the life we know, therefore this book could be an enjoyable and entertaining read for just about anyone. To conclude, I would recommend this novel, because we see many different kinds of things going on such as science, history, bullying, growing up and
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.
Writing an argument essay was a challenge to me, I never understood the difference between ethos and logos during my English 1301. In addition, I did not know where to find good resources to back up my arguments. I think my arguments essay was more like a persuasive essay and that is why I did not enjoy writing this essay. On the other hand, I did enjoyed writing a critical essay for “We are Seven” by William Wordsworth. I loved to read this poem because it was easy to understand .It was cool when Mr. Molina a Karen read out loud this poem, maybe that is why I loved this story because I was able to imagine them as the characters from the poem.
This book spent a great deal of time on those relationships as opposed to the events plaguing them which may cause confusion as to the actual premise. No / Yes Yes As a reader, did you enjoy the story? The story is enjoyable, despite the need for some improvement. No / Yes Yes Are there any confusing sections that need to be made clearer? As the Staff of Plagues is used, events begin to take place which should be a pinnacle of action.
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.
She knew that it wasn’t all perfect and good but she also knew that it was not a cesspool of despair and darkness that some people make it out to be. So, she wrote the novel in a very smart way, she uses literary devices to show and tell a fantastic story but at the same time uses it as a way to talk about the problems and good things about Iran in the 1970s. This allows Persepolis to live longer and be discussed much longer if she simply didn’t use metaphors. It is also a way to show and teach people about a very heated subject and show them not everything is totally black and white in this world and that sometimes the monsters are actually men but at the very same time people can be great, people can work together to further a cause, people can care and at the end of the day people in Iran are exactly that, people and Marjane Satrapi simply wanted to show that in her novel and she succeeded
In my opinion, the article was somewhat entertaining and interesting for me because, I’m interested in knowing more about languages especially languages that are endangering. However, the points that made me dislike the article somewhat is that she didn’t support her ideas clearly and because she didn’t have adequate ideas she started repeating some
