Sigurd is more heroic then Gunnar because Sigurd was able to defeat a dragon. Also he accomplished the task of riding through the fire wall surrounding Brunhild’s castle when Gunnar couldn’t do it. Most of Gunnar’s heroic acts were from winning battles in wars. Gunnar would have been heroic like Sigurd if he had accomplished Sigurd’s deeds. This is because being able to ride through a wall of flames and killing a dragon are more impressive heroic acts then winning war battles.

After reading 80 pages of, “Skud,” by Dennis Foon, I felt motivated by the actions and determination shown by the main characters of the story, especially Andy. In the book, all the characters had a goal or objective and worked hard to reach that goal. Although most people would not advise someone to center their life around one certain thing, I think that when one finds a purpose or objective in life they should always do their best to reach this goal regardless of what others say or thinks of it. In the book, Andy dream was to become a popular actor.Although the possibility of getting cast is low and although he was hurt and unwell, Andy still went to the audition because of that small possibility. After reading about this, I felt determined and motivated by actions like this.
