    A Kinder Reader When one thinks of stories that improve us as human beings, Aesop’s Fables comes to mind, not the dark, dank, heroin‑laced world of Mohsin Hamid’s Moth Smoke. But, reading is like fashion, and one man’s cherished plaid pants are another man’s horror. Not all fiction can directly dole out moral advice, such as Jane Austen’s warnings about the dangers of hasty judgment in Pride and Prejudice, but almost all fiction can proffer tales that at the very least expand our range of vision

    How McEwan Hooks The Reader "Beginnings matter. They always have. Middle's have no limits- they can scrunch up or they can sprawl. Endings may be left open, ambiguous, and incomplete.

"In an age of multiple choice and short attention spans, beginnings are more crucial than ever. To prevent readers drifting off, an author has to hook them quickly". A prime example

    A skilled author possesses the almost mystical ability to awaken a mysterious hidden sixth sense of the reader. This sixth sense or mind’s eye provides written words the ability to rekindle vivid memories and virtually transport the reader to another place, time, or past experience. All these seemingly magical powers originate from imagery. It is through imagery that an author provides the symbolic hook necessary to achieve the reader’s desired emotional attachment to their work. Anne Sexton’s

    Ethan Frome Readers Response I thought the novel Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton was one of the best books that I have ever read. When I started reading the book I thought that it would be about the accident that Ethan experienced instead of the incidents behind it. The novel is also well written, Edith Wharton did a fine job writing a book that I never wanted to put down. I felt as though the story was being told to me and that I actually knew Ethan and Mattie. As well I enjoyed the way that
