of the people in the world need to be told what to do and how to behave (Arnold Schwarzenegger). I am Comparing and Contrasting 2 different Characters from 2 different books, Mustapha Mond from Brave New World and Captain Beatty from Fahrenheit 451.

This comes full circle and relates to both Brave New World and Island, where death is not an issue since it is controlled in some way. In addition, Aldous also had a tendency to use psychedelic while writing his books, there was a feeling that he admired while on these drugs. No one really knows what he felt that made him become addicted to drugs like mescaline and LSD. But, his
Reading this book has been interesting and heartbreaking experience. A Year of Magical Thinking, a journey through the grieving process. While dealing with the death of her husband, she is confronted with the sickness of her only child. This book touches me, and it makes me think of what would happen if my loved one died.
