Within that short passage one can see the presence of personification, allusion and imagery. One could almost visualize a powerful, mysterious smirk appear on Mother Nature's face as she turns away. The novel The Hot Zone, is currently my favorite read. The powerful and provoking writing style of Richard Preston makes me want to dive other works by him. The fact that he can make a non fictional informative story so intriguing and addicting is a large feat.
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? If I had more time to revise my essays I would look back to my arguments and check to see if the sources that I used are valid and relatable to my sentence. Sometimes I get writer’s block and so I just whatever comes to my mind, even if it does not make sense. This
I’ve come to find out that I have a strong hatred for Heart of Darkness because of the more than complex frame shifts and a love for Withering Heights because it was the first book I could get through without developing a hatred for every character in the book. I learned about relating books to life that was happening around me. I’ve learned how to incorporate my learning into something I could take with me for the rest of my life. The experiences that happened in AP English not only broadened my horizon when it came to literacy but it also helped me develop my own character. I went soul searching to find out what I really did like about english.
He cares deeply about his daughter and will one day explain when she is older. At this point in the story i think the thesis is that sometimes the truth isn't the right thing to say in order to protect people from it. The author goes on to tell in detail how he felt emotionally- physically, when he killed his first man.The author, tired, and weak from switching on and off watch every two hours. The author is Probably delusional at this time. “There was no sound at all-none that I can remember.

Among other essays I have read in this book, the essay El Camino Doloroso written by David Searcy seems to have won my heart over the other ones. This story is short; in fact, it only has three pages, but the message Mr. Searcy conveys surpass these simple pages. To be honest, I have to read this essay three times to understand what is going on with the character and what is happening in this story. At last, I come up with this: In this essay, David Searcy wants those who believe dreams are flaws and useless to think that dreams and love are those that motivateki people to live. In El Camino Doloroso, Mr. Searcy illustrates a story of a former father-in-law of Tracy Hicks.
Personally, I like a story that can keep me on my toes and make twists and turns that surprise me. This book however walked a straight path with the only obstacles being racism and the despair that Jefferson felt. What kept me reading was the joy of watching a, predictable yet pleasant, story
On July 19th 2002, a 6 month old infant took her last breaths. Her life cut short by those who should have been her protectors. This tragic and disturbing story would live in infamy and would forever change the way these types of cases would be tried. A little more than a decade has passed and people are now once again infuriated finding out that one of baby Brianna’s abusers has been set free. Was justice truly given for this crime or has the justice system failed baby Brianna?
Just the thought of being shipped off to be dismantled scares anyone. The realism of this book is my favorite part. The author did a very good job of making you feel like you are actually living inside of the story and watching Connor and Risa's journey. After you are done reading this story you will be baffled at the amount of thrill in it. If you like a slightly twisted, disturbing story this is the book for
Danforth now stating to know of Abigail’s disappearance doesn’t really seem to care: ‘My daughter tells me how she heard them speaking of ships l last week, and tonight i discover my- my strongbox is broke into” (Parris). I believe these sentences was a good example of how Abigail is a liar and theft and only ran away to save her own self from being hanged or

But more disturbing is that poverty is now starting to take its toll on her children, especially her eldest daughter. Metcalf says she recently tried to run away from home in the middle of the night.” This article appeals to emotion by focusing on metcalf and her story. It doesn’t focus on any other person the author is trying to tell a specific story to appeal to the reader. The way the author structures the article affects the effectiveness of the article by appealing to a certain audience.
Finally I chose to put Cradle and All by James Patterson as my hardest book because frankly I did not understand it. I am trying to read more difficult novels, but I think I chose one a little too far outside my comfort zone. The plot is understandable but the language the author uses rather difficult for me to read. To sum it up, these books are all good choices and I would recommend them, but sometimes I just have to deal with what I can
