John Steinbeck used repetition to display the realities of the men be destroyed time after time while chasing their dreams. In the story, John Steinbeck uses repetition to show the internal and external problems created by the same idea in the story.

The irony in this scene provides a sense of awkwardness (fate changes/turning tables). What had really shocked me was when he had the perfect opportunity to leave Christine in the upside down burning car and die. However, instead he does the exact opposite of what we’d think, he risks his own life and saves her. Another character that took me by surprise was the Iranian man (Shaun Toub) who is an immigrant trying to fit in.
