In the book I admired Leon knowing that even going through torturous situations and watching his father beaten right before his eyes and through all the war he continued to be positive and try to look towards the future. Hope is what I think was always in his
I enjoyed all the characters in Something Wicked This Way Comes they all played a significant role in the novel but I have to say one of my favorites in the whole book was, Charles Halloway. Heroes come in all shapes in sizes and I believe Charles was a huge hero in the novel. He is also kind, loving, intelligent, and is willing to sacrifice himself; the bad thing is he lets self doubt take him over and regrets too much. I liked him because he through this rough time Charles Halloway was able to make something good come out of i... ... middle of paper ... ...ersonally, I fell in love with the book. Ray Bradbury has a more unique style in writing than most authors.
Louis forgave the same people that almost caused his death. This incredible act is a lesson that we could all learn from. In conclusion, this captivating tale taught many life lessons, including the freedom of forgiveness, and the importance of dignity on survival. Hillenbrand captured the reader’s emotions through the use of morals and themes. The book itself, although initially difficult to spark an interest in, is truly remarkable both in the words written by Hillenbrand, and by the story provided by Zamperini.
Beowulf is honored after Grendel and his mother’s defeat for his morality and willingness to help the king with his problem. He put aside the life he had at home and gave up everything so they were protected. Upon his return, everyone was praising him and lifting up the wondrous works and all that’d he’d done to protect them. Because of his respectable actions, Beowulf was rewarded for his true heroism. He becomes king over his people and ruled for the next fifty years.

My grandfather died of disease, and during his last months he wanted nothing more but to go out and live life. It definitely makes a difference if in your own life you live it like it’s your last and try to make the most of it. In conclusion this book had a big effect on its readers, and therefore accomplished the purpose of being written.
Fay Weldon may as well have been describing Les Miserables when she said "The writer, I do believe, who get the best and most lasting response from readers are the writers who offer happy endings through moral development .... some kind of spiritual reassessment or moral reconciliation, even with the self, even at death." The hero Jean Valjean undergoes quite the transformation throughout the course of his story. He begins as a criminal and convict with absolutely no scruples. A kindly prelate forgives him after a theft, and simply turns the other cheek. This act of unexpected generosity inspires Valjean...

Memories never die and stories live on forever. Foer takes us through a journey of tragedy and healing through the eyes of three individuals to teach us all a lesson on how people truly deal with loss.

After the assassination many citizens were devastated, but it came to their realization that it was a wakeup call for the political system. Rauchway makes it clear in the novel of how Roosevelt faced one of America’s toughest times, but through that time helped American grow stronger as a nation. What I like about Rauchway writings is that he organizes the storyline and it is detailed in every chapter explaining the smallest parts of the story. For example, he mentions the time of the hour, the emotions of the characters, Czolgosz life history, etc. He does not miss any facts, which is very helpful to know background information when just learning about a
I felt that O’Brien did a good job causing the reader feel as if they were personally there experiencing the battles and getting to know the soldiers on their own. He made you feel the pain of the reality of the war. O’Brien excels at connecting the reader to the personal trials and tribulations of each of each of the soldiers to help put you in the place and thoughts of them. Though the novel didn 't have a clear storyline, and skipped around, it still came across as a clear, well organized collection. I would highly recommend this book to

Furthermore, because he had a warmhearted owner, he was able to express himself through his work to many different people of his time. Douglass’s works and speeches remain of great impact, and continue to influence and inspire many people in literature to this day. He influenced many people during his travels to Northern free states and overseas to England and Ireland where he explained and changed their mindset of the cruelty of slavery, which ultimately lead to the adjustment by the people to understand the reality of slavery.
