As Henry Miller once said, “Chaos is the score upon which reality is written” (“Chaos Quotes”). Miller seems to believe that no matter what actions we take, the world is destined to return to chaos. He seems to be right. Today’s world has been overrun by social issues such as hunger, segregation and depression. While government programs everywhere take action to prevent these issues, their efforts are futile. The truth is, to prevent these social issues, the world must kill the seed from which they grow. In Jeannette Walls’ book, The Glass Castle, she perfectly demonstrates how one social issue can become a source of many others. In the book, Jeannette’s father
Another characteristic the author exhibits is forgiveness. The struggles her parents cause her display this trait. For instance, Ma constantly neglects Murray as a child. Drugs and alcohol consume the parent’s lives, so Murray and her older sister do not receive the proper care they need. Also, Ma frequently spent her daughter’s money or sold their items without their consent. The readers are astonished when the author says many times that she forgives Ma and just moves on. An important scene in the story occurs when Murray looks back on her childhood and forgives her mom for all of her wrongs, and concludes her mom did the best that she could do. Many people would resent their parents after all the hardships they caused, and so does the author at first. But she finds it in her heart to forgive which shows her kindness and really displays how mature of a person she is.
Jurassic Park is classified as a science fiction book or sci-fi for short. It ties imagination and scientific fact together. There were several biological concepts that were discussed in this thrilling story. These were the concepts that stood out to me the most: adaption, biotechnology, and amino-acid deficiency.
Hammond states this to Dr. Wu in the chapter, Bungalow. In this quote Hammond refuses to face the reality of how unsafe his park is, even though countless amount of evidence is set in front him. Not to mention he also refuses to believe that the dinosaurs have found a way to breed despite of the scientists’ precautions. Between his stubbornness and old age we observe that Hammond is actually out of his mind. Later on, after the island is in pieces and most of the staff is dead, Hammond still believes that he still/should build another Jurassic Park. Though in the beginning the novel vilified Nerdy, Hammond emerges as the real villain of the story with his abuse of the scientific power. This quote helps you understand who the real protagonist and real antagonist are. Nerdy was just a pod in the author’s game, to figure whose fault is. (Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. Chapter Bungalow)

As mentioned earlier, the mother's version is tinged with conservative disapproval, possibly a result of her direct involvement with the events and their unpleasant consequences. Despite her traditional viewpoint (which might be seen as narrow and bigoted in a modern context), her version is interestingly the most objective one of the three: her own opinions only make themselves felt at the end of her otherwise purely narrative tale. In the next change of filter, the narrator then puts forth her own speculative version of events, portraying her aunt as the proverbial victim of circumstances. Adopting this filter of the passive aunt gives us an insightful look into her surroundings, proposing a degree of identification with her, and inducing a temporary familiarity with the period's oppressive attitudes for modern readers. In effect, this passage makes accessible two potentially alienating elements: the social and temporal context of the setting, as well as the psyche of the character in question. This level of personal identification is taken a step further when, later in the story, the narrator indulges in wild speculation of her aunt playing a potentially active role in the events. The conveying of a modern mindset upon her aunt may seem jarring in the context
Her father is a little more caring than her mother, but is still immersed in his work. They don’t really listen to her and don’t care that she disappears to this other world because they think it was all a dream. Coraline starts to love being in the Other World because she gets attention and the other parents want her around. This changes when the beldam asks to sew buttons on her eyes and gets upset when Coraline does not want that and tries to leave. After Coraline rescues her parents and defeats the beldam, her parents start giving her some attention, but they didn’t know what all happened.
Once upon a time there was a prideful fisherman who had to give fish to the King every day. On the day he failed to do so, the king would come to his home and take everything he had; which wasn’t much. Just a dog and a small run down cottage several miles from the village. Behind the fisherman’s cottage was a lake. And in that lake lived a beautiful mermaid with inky black eyes and long silvery hair that got caught in her fins whenever she swam.

Firstly, Coraline's, mother and father are not named but her mom and dad are very busy and her mom is ignorant to coraline's wants and needs. The writer portrays both of them as two people totally dedicated to their own business, leaving coraline completely alone to entertain herself. Why does the author never name her parents throughout the book? The author shows by the language used that this story will be about coralline and not naming the parents will leave the reader feeling the cold the same impression and very little sympathy towards them. Coraline’s mother, is introduced as a busy and does not care for her own daughter. Besides her father, his initiatives are mostly from what her mother says. He is the only parent who actually is

She investigates and discovers that it's the other mother's right hand. Just her hand! That dismembered right hand is trying to recover the black key. Coraline knows the hand is after the black the black key, that what the children warned her about in her
Marguerite creates a different version of the confrontation between Momma and the dentist because the truth was not what she needed to hear. She wanted a powerful and compelling story, one that finally showed the dominance of a black over a white, for none of them existed. For once, she wanted to be the one in command of the outcome, to have control over how her people were treated. Nothing hurts more than having to sit still and take it while somebody sabotages you repeatedly, and to quench her aching desire for conquest, she over exaggerated. The dentist standing at R.O.T.C. attention in the presence of Momma, shaking with fear, Momma enunciating perfect English, making witty remarks to those normally respected, and Momma turning the nurse
