These form of novels are called “the stream of consciousness”, and its form goes by hearing characters’ thoughts and their inner emotions. Mr. James prefers, as I interpret, that a novel should have characters combined with the actions they go through. I agree with him, since I find much pleasure in reading such works of fiction. That is of course my own taste, and not my own opinion, since an opinion should be objective. In conclusion, life can be seen in characters, which are in action.

This novel began with Crusoe telling us how much of a desire he had for sailing and how he gave into going sailing with his companion to London. His yearn for sailing also suggests how much he wanted to get away from England. It is obvious to see his feelings for England were not very strong nor was his family relationship. The lack of names in his family showed us he did not want us to become familiar with them and therefore showed he did not have a strong relationship with them. This first journey made way for more to come, one including Crusoe becoming a slave and another involving a Portuguese captain who willingly took him to Brazil.

When Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World, he created an intriguing and effective novel, designed to captivate the audience and provide them with a story that is easy to digest, even though it is complex. He accomplishes this through a combination of careful plot structure and the use of subplots. His subplot provides a foil, useful for contrasting the protagonist of the story, and also gives the reader a wider view of the setting of the story. Huxley takes an unconventional but powerful approach to his plot structure; organizing an episodic plot structure into a plot that can also be considered progressive. This increases his ability to develop his characters while maintaining a series of events that draws the reader in and keeps the story transitioning nicely, and creates a story that is sure to please all audiences.
