In the beginning of the book, “The Scourge” by Jennifer A. Nelson, there is a girl named Ani who was venturing the woods within her part of the country. She was then caught by wardens searching for those who had the disease, ‘the Scourge’. Her friend Weevil was supposed to be by her side, but he was also taken captive. The two wardens were supposed to bring 5 river people to be tested but only brought two. Eventually, they reached the town where the governor was testing people to see if they had the disease. That night Ani and Weevil escaped the prison like area they were in. Ani ran near a river where a girl was in need of help. She was different from Ani, their kind didn’t like each other. Ani was seen, from there Della was also taken in to be tested. They both tested positive, and were taken to the colony. Thn after they received their medicine, Ani accidentally got Della’s thrown away.
Overall I found the movie to be quite interesting and exciting at times but a bit slow in others. The story itself was very clear to me and didn’t cause any confusion. It had a good flow also, just as you were on the verge of falling into boredom with a scene they switched it up on you to keep you

5: In the book The Scorch Trials a group of boys with one girl try to reach the haven. One boy dark hair Hispanic gets bitten and starts the change his name was Wilson. The group of boys travel not knowing how to heal him. Wilson breathes hard. Soon he collapses, and the group has to carry him. They were about to leave, Wilson asked for the gun and stay there. The group left and in the background they heard the gunshot. The boy had killed himself.
It was very sad to me that the story didn’t have a different more positive ending, the story had a root for the underdog type of feel in the story, you wanted the underdog to win but it never happen in the
Another difference between Miller’s play and the reality of the trials is that the author increased Abigail Hobbs’ age from 11 to 17, and decreased John Proctor’s age from 60 to 30 (Lecture 02/03/17) (Boyer et al. 182). This was done by the author in order to insert a love story between the two protagonists, the rest of the play unravels from this affair. By adding in this element, the reason as to why the accused girls are practicing witchcraft to start with is modified. In the play, Miller suggests that Abigail’s interest in witchcraft as a means of vengeance arises when she stops working for the Proctor family due to Proctor’s wife getting rid of her because of her affair with her husband. In reality, there never were any witchcraft ceremonies
The title, “Scorch Trials” has to do with the book because it is the name and setting of the trials that the Gladers have to complete successfully. To explain this further, the WICKED, or the World In Catastrophe Experiment Department, has set up trials for the Gladers to see which of them can successfully survive and reach the cure for the disease that has been injected into them called the Flare, as a prize for their hard and good work. These trials have been named the “Scorch Trials” because they take place outside in the “dangerous” world that is filled with Cranks or in other words zombies that are trying to eat and attack the Gladers alive. Not only that, but the outside world is almost unbearably scorching hot and dry. The sun is so
Since I read Wicked the other day, and Son of a Witch is next in The Wicked Years series, I immediately started on it. This one is he story of the boy that is implied to be the Wicked Witch of the West's son in Wicked. All through the book you don't know for sure if he really is or isn't her son until the very end. I like Maguire's writing style, but the book isn't as good as Wicked. You are so far removed from The Wizard of Oz at this point, that I would venture to say the book has nothing to do with it at all. Like I said, the book is interesting and well written, but I wouldn't read it a second time. I was disappointed by the loose ends left at the conclusion of the book and by the lead character's dirtbaggish behavior from time to
You will laugh and will cry in this fun and crazy story, readers will be glued to their seat. Fire country is about the post-apocalyptic world.This is the first book of the country series it starts with a girl Siena she is trying to survive in her village from the life-destroying disease known as the fire she is an outcast who makes friends that help her become stronger. What I personally dislike about the book is that it takes a while for the action to start picking up it took until basically page 80 to start picking up. The good part about the book is that the plot is easy to understand and it’s easy to pick up and enjoy! The outlandish setting as I could describe it makes it like you're looking through glass down at the character living
Overall, the whole show was satisfying. I am not familiar with the show Escape from Happiness, so it was a new experience for me when I watched the production. Although it was a great play, there were two issues I had with it. The telling of the story took a large chunk of time. In today’s society time is one thing that we lack. We have all these things going on and a two hour and a half play isn’t something that I would like to spend my two hours watching. I could have loved it more if it was short and sweet. In fact, the majority of the play was a build up to the point of the character getting beat up and the situations that were going on in their families. While not familiar with Escape from Happiness, I do know the two thieves were notorious outlaws. I was disappointed I did not get to witness scenes of them making a name for themselves. Sure, they did a couple bad things, but nothing in the production led me to believe they were as big as their infamous real-life counterparts. As when I was thinking about it, I came to agree with myself that the conclusion of the first part was too abrupt and left much to be desired. I
