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.
Ah, overall this book is great for readers who love intense fantasy, the book welcoming you just as much as they welcome the kids in Croak. It doesn't keep you exhausted on the edge every chapter, but it keeps you craving more. Something you need to know about this book is that it's hardcore fantasy, and you'll love it so much you'll want to be trapped
In conclusion, this book is extremely well written, and you are sure to connect with at least one character. We feel for the characters, and there is excellent foreshadowing. The moments of action are portrayed amazingly.
Everybody dreams during his lifetime. It is a part of human nature that we experience almost everyday. Dreams can be lost memories, past events and even fantasies that we relive during our unconscious hours of the day. As we sleep at night, a new world shifts into focus that seems to erase the physical and moral reality of our own. It is an individual's free mind that is privately exposed, allowing a person to roam freely in his own universe. As we dream, it seems that we cannot distinguish right from wrong or normal from abnormal and, therefore, commit acts that we would not have done in a realistic society. Perhaps Lewis Carroll, author of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland,
I would definitely recommend this book to someone. It is a little slow but it has a good story line and it gets more interesting the more you read it and the deeper you get.
Lewis Carroll's use of puns and riddles in Alice in Wonderland help set the theme and tone. He uses word play in the book to show a world of warped reality and massive confusion. He uses such play on words to reveal the underlying theme of growing up', but with such an unusual setting and ridiculous characters, there is need for some deep analyzing to show this theme. The book contains many examples of assonance and alliteration to add humor. Carroll also adds strange diction and extraordinary syntax to support the theme.
Still Alice (Genova, 2009) is a captivating debut novel about a 50-year-old woman’s sudden decline into early onset Alzheimer’s disease. The book is written by first time author Lisa Genova, who holds a PH.D in neuroscience from Harvard University. She’s also an online columnist for the national Alzheimer’s association. Her other books include Left Neglected and Love Anthony. She lives with her husband and two children in Cape Cod.
This book is split between Grace and Ian's perspective, first-person. Blount has this skill down, guys. She has mastered the art of writing in both a female and a male perspective. A lot of times, I might like one side more than the other. BUT, I am pleased to say that I really enjoyed reading from both Grace and Ian's perspective.
Many themes are explored when reading Lewis Carrol’s, Alice in Wonderland. Themes of childhood innocence, child abuse, dream, and others. Reading the story, it was quite clear to see one particular theme portrayed through out the book: child to adult progression. Alice in Wonderland is full of experiences that lead Alice to becoming more of herself and that help her grow up. It’s a story of trial, confusion, understanding, and success. And more confusion. Though others might argue that the story was distinctly made for children just to get joy out of funny words, and odd circumstances, the tale has obvious dynamics that confirm the fact of it being a coming of age story.
The characters bring a riveting story to life when reading. Throughout the book, I felt emotions left and right for the characters and what they were going through. There is a lot of mystery and questioning that will be answered later in the book, but once its done, there are still many questions being asked. when I look for a book, that is something that stands out to me because I really want to read more, and when you have that reaction to a book, that means it was worth reading. I found this book remarkable because of the behaviors, characteristics, and decisions that the characters make, and I recommend this book to everyone, even if they don’t like to
Alice in Wonderland by Charles L Dodgeson (Lewis Carrol) is a classic masterpiece and example of great literature. Many people know of this book as merely a child’s tale or a Disney movie. As both were adopted from the book, many of the ideas were not. I have my own feelings and opinions of this book. Remarkable use of words and an originally creative theme and plot structure are both used in this book. The author of this novel used many hidden meanings, symbolism, and ambiguous terms to greatly describe the actual nature of the story. Many people have different views as to the type of book it is and the novel’s actual meaning. Although this book inspires many people to laugh, it also inspires them think.
I don’t really recommend this book to anyone and I have a few reasons why. One reason is because I felt that there was too much going on in the book and it was very confusing. Another reason is because the book is very long and takes a lot of pages (more than half the book) to get started. My last reason is if the book is too hard and confusing to you, you can't even look up summary notes on the book because there's nothing on it.
I liked how in one scene from the story she described the surroundings as, “Wide expanses of moonlit grass separated the east and west sides of the street.” I also liked how the author used vivid description to create imagery on the appearances of the characters such as when Henri was described as being tired and weary immediately before he collapsed. One thing that I didn't like about the book was how the figures in the book that were deemed untrustworthy were turned into demons and other creatures. This did not seem very appropriate towards how the story was presented. The author could have made them glow a different color or done something that wouldn't have been so gruesome and terrible. This book was very inspirational and interesting to me despite the demons and vampires.
Throughout the book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, many aspects of Victorian society are criticized through Alice’s experiences in Wonderland. Lewis Carroll indirectly incorporates his views of society into his book. The three main aspects that are criticized are Victorian Education, Victorian Government, and Victorian Classes.
