I was not really into reading at the time, but I remember that my teacher made us read for at least fifteen minutes at the beginning of every class. If we did not have a book there were many books from her library to choose from. I believe this was one of the first books that I read in her class, and think I chose this book in particular because it stood out. I mean the title itself already piqued my interest. I honestly did not think that I was going to enjoy it as much as I did, It was such a bizarre read with all the strange events and abnormal characters. And in a weird way, the strangeness of the story was what I really liked. I do not think I would have liked it as much if it was not for that. It was one of the first chapter books that I did not have to force myself to finish. This was also one of the first books I read that really got me into loving to read. I just loved getting lost in another world and I wanted to keep reading books that did that for me.
I really enjoyed the book because I love reading very interesting and right at the
In my opinion I thought that this book was a very good book. In this chapter I will describe the setting, theme, plot and conflict etc. This book had a few different settings like
I liked the concept of the novel, with Spinelli making the whole book about originality and that its ok to be yourself. The love story was simple and sweet, but at
Dialectical Journal Name: Joana De Sousa Novel: A Catcher in the Rye Author: J.D. Salinger Literary Element Quote Analysis Point of View “I’M THE MOST TERRIFIC LIAR you ever saw in your life.” (Holden 19). This story is told in the first person point of view. The author chose the story to be first person to build a connection with the reader, and to tell stories from their own perspective, since they are more reliable than being told by someone else. First person also allows the reader to create a relationship with the protagonist and get to to know the character by the choices he made and the life experiences he had.
I loved this book so much. There is so much action and is so much better and exciting with so much amazing detail and description. This is one of my favorite books ever. When you read it, you don’t want to put it down and it makes you feel like you are with the characters in the book and you know them so well. I recommend this book to anyone who can read at this level.
I recommend “Cryer’s Cross” to my best friend because it is an amazing book. When I first read the book I thought I wouldn’t like it. But now I am in love with the book. The characters really engage me in the book and I think my friend would fall in love with the characters like I did. You can feel all the emotion in the book and I think that is what engaged me the most. You can feel how the character feels and it makes you feel connected to the characters. One of the quotes from the book is “When it is over, We breath and ache like old oak, like peeling birch. One of our lost souls set free. We move, a chess piece in the dark room, cast-iron legs a centimeter at a time, crying out in silent carved graffiti. Calling to our next victim, Our
Another thing that I liked about the book is that at the beginning, the wake/vigil/funeral was so accurately described. Funerals are awkward, tiring, and numbing. Meursault
It captured my attention from the beginning. I like how the Rand was descriptive words to help me have an image of what was happening in the novel. I like the story line. I like the idea of someone breaking way from everyone else and being different from others. That they are able to think for themselves and that it is ok to be different from others. I also liked how the novel had some romance because I do enjoy romance novels. The Language Police written by Diane Ravitch, I did not quit enjoy the book. I do not really like books like that. I do not recommend this book if you are not interested in how the bias panel chooses stories for children. I do recommend the novel, Anthem. It gives the reader a sense of individualism, there is a story behind
The book had a lot of hard times in the middle of the trouble like when the dome first came down the family's that had lost love ones. Page 80. A man had lost his wife from the dome coming down on the middle of the garden and right on her fingers. She could not get help because all the doctors where busy with other people in the time she died because lose of blood. In the beginning of the book junior went and killed Angie out of rage. Page 42. The people in the car wreck in the dome where running from the cops. Page 33. In the middle the people started to turn and kill for the resources to safe there live page 200. The people started to trust the people that they have never know before like the two people that showed up right before the pink stars. Page 333. I like the book because of the faith that they had to have to get through the hard times in dome. When they started to trust big Jim witch was not trusted with the Important thing for the dome. I like when they had to choose sides if they go with the two girls or not in the book. Page 350. I like the fact that they got out of the dome after a lot time of suffering and little resources to use. Page

What stood out to me in this book was the timeframe of the abuse and how severe the abuse was. I read the book all in one sitting and although it was only a little over ninety pages, it felt much long. With all the marks and other
I really liked the book. It was very enjoyable to read. I would recommend it to my friends, because I think they
