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
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. Cyrano, whose personality was shown, when interrupting the play that was being performed in the Hotel Burgundy called “Clorise”.
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.
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
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. This is what I would have changed. I would put more of a storyline in it and I would have made it a more interesting
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. How would you revise your essays if you had more time?
Yes Does the story deliver on its premise? The reader discovers details about the lives of Bastet and her Priestesses through the relationships of the characters. 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
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
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
In the novel How to Read Novels Like a Professor, the author, Thomas Foster speaks of how an opening page must “seduce the reader” and “give you everything you need to know.” This idea is present in William Goldman’s The Princess Bride, as the first page is full of intriguing writing techniques, starting with a very intimate tone. Tone is one of the “eighteen beauties” Foster mentions. Here, Goldman wants to build a connection with the readers.
