Talking with friends about a book that loses people 's interest quickly happens a lot, to me at least. David Sheilds ' book didn 't lose my interest but it was hard to follow because of the short provocations that are given in this book. In addition, the provocations do not really follow along with each one and that made it harder to concentrate on the book. Another weakness of the book is that David should have given more input on matters of the subjects because I feel like that would keep the reader 's attention better. Reality Hunger being close to almost the total opposite of a manifesto when it says "a manifesto" on the cover of the book threw me off while reading the book because a manifesto is a published verbal declaration of the intentions, motives and views of the issuer.
It's about time students read books for recreation and be able to express in their own words why the books are great or not so great. Most importantly, the lessons each book teaches students must be learned individually. People cannot be told what the book is trying to communicate, they must learn it for themselves. This is what makes books noteworthy, and this is why Sherlock Holmes vs. Dracula by Loren D. Estleman is an extraordinary book. It is a book people can enjoy for entertainment motives rather than for its devices of sound, syntax, and omniscient point of view.
Critique of Vote.Com By Dick Morris Being required to read books is not always something you look forward to in a class. Actually it’s probably one the worst things you dread. Especially this assignment, I was honestly not looking forward to anything about this book when I was preparing to read it. And though the premise of the book is actually very relevant in today’s day in age, I still felt like the information just could not be that important to me personally. Even after reading the introduction I could not have been less interested in the book than before I began reading it.
While there are people who love to read and write, there are others that do not. When a student is required to read a book for a class and that student does not enjoy reading, there are very few things they would rather do less. And when that book’s topic is about learning how to write that is the worst of it. When I was assigned to read Writing with Style by John R. Trimble, my immediate thought was that this book and assignment was going to be a struggle to get through. To my pleasant surprise, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
The growth that I experienced in this class has been a result of several factors. To begin with, when I was introduced to the elements of ethos, logos and pathos I felt that they were very abstract ideas and that a writer eventually tends to write what he/she feels irrespective of facts, logic, emotion or an attempt to establish his/her credibility. However, this notion of mine was proved wrong when the class discussions started. I understood that the reader and not the writer finally judge writing and hence it is important to include all elements of ethos, pathos and logos is the required balance in order to create an interesting, thought-provoking essay with good arguments or opinions. This also taught me the importance of including personal anecdotes in my essays to grab the attention of the audience.
These patterns of this story also leads up to the reason why this story was written the way Bradbury planned. As Montag and his wife Mildred reads this journey of the books more and more suspicion to Captain Beatty mind. Montag knows that this situation was a lose or win outcome between his job and his life.

How the main character in the story shows his point of view about how the story takes place is very much so correct, about how feel about it myself.
Some class for school might do a main idea reading form. Reading for the main idea will help the reader understand the book more clearly. The main idea of a novel mostly helps the reader be able to write about it with a certain theme. Though it has its upsides, reading for only the main idea will not help one to be able to write an essay using one’s own personal ideas and thoughts. While reading the reader usually looks for the author’s intended audience.
The Good Earth I was in a complete daze after reading Pearl S. Buck’s remarkable novel, The Good Earth. It was somewhat hard not to stop what I was doing afterwards and try to put myself in the characters’ shoes and visualize everything that happened in the book. I was so taken by the plot that I remember not wanting to put down the book till I knew what happened next in one of the conflicts in the story. Considering my reaction to it when I first got the book and my reaction to it now, you would really think it’s ironic. First of all I wasn’t quite happy when I found out about the reading we had to do and obviously not looking forward to reading having to squeeze it in my hectic after school schedule.
With this, King's novels changed from a romantic prose to direct rhythms and characterizations. King begins instruction in his book On Writing by instructing not to constrict to a manual of writing a certain way, but by simply writing and seeing what comes structure is able to out of it (McCrillis). The shift in his writing comes from many factors, but most are from letting the structure take on its own course; to not write as his vision sees it beforehand, but to let the wri... ... middle of paper ... ...that King's characters are so thick that the teachers only cared when it was too late. Along with the traditional assets to a fairytale plot, there is also the heroine fighting the battles and problems set before her to become the master of her own kingdom, therefore having the ability to rule her own life – just as Carrie White was able to do (Winter 33). The theme of intolerance is shown through all these points in King's writing and more.
Some people are uncomfortable talking about this subject for they feel they might be judged. I guess the author wanted to write an informative yet understanding reading without sounding like he was writing a fictional story. Some authors sugar things in order to make the reading more appealing while, this author did explain a couple of things that would make you angry, cry, agree, or maybe even disagree with him. From what I have read the tone of the book identifies with the main character that happens to be a thirteen-year-old female. To Start, I will give you a brief introduction about the main character Caroline and girl her father who are living off the radar, in the shadows of civilization.
