I am personally not into history books very much and this book reinforced that fact. I am though interested in history though, and that was what kept me going with Slave Country. Even though the read was slow and at times hard, the information that was being told was that of a newly formed nation and the beliefs of freedom were at that particular time. It is interesting to learn all of the facts, which this book so prevalently has, but it was more rewarding to have a knew found idea of how hard of a struggle it was to gain freedom for slaves and to form a nation that has evolved in to what it is today. If I happened to come across someone interested in the field of history I would definitely recommend this book because it is an eye opener, but the the average person most likely
Playspent is an online-based game of balancing the budget while doing all the activities necessary in a life of a low-income person or family. It is designed in a way to present the life of a low-income person or family. It might be an online-based game but it has a lot of connection with the real life scenarios. Based on my experience of playing this game, it is a game that requires critical to make each and every decision in various scenarios. During the game, I couldn’t understand it is something I am doing online rather; it is designed in a way that made me feel I am actually making the decisions in my real life. This game can easily pursue someone to think about the reason behind poverty and the life of people with poverty. Moving on to
In conclusion, I thought it was a very well written book and I enjoyed reading it. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. The book is very helpful in giving a relatable version of life during this time. Although you don't need to be obsessed with this topic, the book would be more enjoyable for people who are interested in the Revolutionary
Think of our society today and the role that women play in it. Women impact people’s lives every single day. In The Things They Carried, there were a couple of women that were brought up in the book, and it showed the enormous effect that the women’s presence had on the men during the war. Mary Anne and Linda were two girls who played huge roles, yet were not even the main characters. Their roles consisted mainly of altering the soldier's personalities and perspectives life during this time. The women brought about the idea of love, humanity, and strength. All of these ideas were put into major effect in the book in many ways.
I found this book to be an eye opener to many things that I never really paid attitude to. We all want to believe that where we come from and who we are does not affect what we will be come. Yes all have heard it before you can be what you want to be as long as you work hard for it. But really many things that people would like to be are out of reached for the simple fact that you are not in the right class of people. Even thought
It is enlightening and insightful. It also gives the reader a new point of view as the slaves in the story traveled further south, instead of north to achieve their freedom. It is unknown to many that a place called Fort Mose just two miles north of St. Augustine, Florida, was owned by the Spanish King where slavery wasn’t allowed. Many runaway slaves from the Carolinas’ travelled south to Florida to be free. It is uncommon to hear of slaves running away further into the south and it is another reason why this novel is so amazing. It engulfs the reader into the lives of the slaves and the indentured servants and allows them to feel their struggles and pain. The way the author depicts the stamina, patience, perseverance, and courage of the slaves is admirable and gives the reader hope and reassurance of humanity
I, as a reader, liked this book for the factual data and research Lord had to do to wrap this book in a short 200 pages. If one is not into reading history, they will still enjoy this because it shows that even when we are corrupted with hate and discrimination, events like this bring Americans together through this one event. This book proves that history is not all that
Literature Circle ___________________________________________________________________________ Facilitator; How do you think Louie Zamparin’s childhood has affected his motive to survive throughout the story?

It also teaches about how women during this period were used to the men doing all the work while they stayed home and were educated on things like painting and learning how to play piano, like Ada, but when it came to taking care of the farms they did not know how to do it properly. It also shows that because of this reason, once men went into the fighting, women went into a difficult time in which they had to learn how to survive by
Instead of trying to do an analysis on the last few chapters of the book, I decided to narrow in on Chapter 18, "Barrette Manifesto." Although this is the shortest chapter I have ever seen in a book of this size, it was one that not only caught my attention, but made me question her arguments and beliefs about the topics of sexism and femininity.
This novel was really good.It was a great American Southern spiritual journey The Southern folksy language made me feel more in the story. In the novel, there were many great themes, such as language, society and class, love and relationship versus independence,jealousy, and gender and appearances. Language was used very different for the men and women in the novel. Women were intimidated by the men into submissive silence

For this reason, and many others that involved the particular context of the book, and the storyline, this book was very controversial.
