The author would jump from subject to subject in a confusing manner. For instance in chapter four, she was discussing jobs in one paragraph and in the next paragraph she started talking about crime pamphlets. She oftentimes repeated information from chapter to chapter which made one wonder if she was just trying to fill up space or did she think she need to remind us about the event? Also, the book spanned over three centuries (17th-19th), yet she only spent two chapters on the first one hundred and seventy-three years and concentrated seven chapters on the last sixty-four. Also, there were several typographical errors that I found while reading the book such as: on page 140, the word blacks was spelled “blaks;” on page 202, the word among was spelled “amog;” on page 261, the word poverty was spelled “proverty;” and on page 287, the word association was spelled
Good writers, like Huntley Fitzpatrick, know how to appeal to their audience, for figurative language is more than an “intellectual extravagance” (Krauss). According to R. Grant Steen, “For communication to serve the needs of the listener as well as the needs of the speaker, the listener must be able to understand what the speaker is "really" saying. It is not enough to understand the literal meaning of speech” (Krauss). The key to an interesting novel is the compelling storyline drawing you in and making want to read just a little more, for “no facet of humanity’s evolved “genius” as Aristotle put it more than 2300 years ago, sparkles so brilliantly as our unique capacities for extra-literal description and comprehension” (Krauss).
To many of us fear is what shuts us down and prohibits us to take action in fearful
The author described things well in this book, but this book was a bit easy to read because she didn’t use difficult words. This sometimes would not allow for you to know exactly how she meant for things to appear.
Fear: an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat(Websters Dictionary).Fear is something that our lives have adapted to rarely use as our ancient predecessors have.In our day and age the concept of fear comes through the stress of work. We humans no longer fear a cold nor do we fear storms as our houses protect us and on average our life spans are longer as old in the Paleolithic was 33 while currently it is 71.5(Wikipedia Life Expectancy). Why then is our fear so extensive that it can make us freeze up? “The answer is our legacy of ancient fears, the result of having spent millions of years running from predators. Our fear response is more influenced by the ancient species we struggled to escape than any modern challenges.”(The evolutionary legacy of having been prey.By Rob Dunn) This is one of the statements about human life. If this is so how do we develop from terror to finding fear fun?
The author wrote this story as a literary genius. There is an extreme level of suspense that leaves you wanting
One of the many themes developed in the novel, A Separate Peace, is fear. Going to war, not excelling in studies, and jumping from a tree are three events that show how fear is portrayed throughout the story. Fear is an important theme in this story because almost every character ends up being consumed by fear. The entire story revolves around fear and without it, the story wouldn’t be the same.
The book is simple and easy to read. The author has a good use of English language. He uses specific words, therefore making his book highly readable.
One of the many emotions attached to All the Light We Cannot See is fear. From the very beginning of the novel readers were able to identify this in events such as, Marie’s early years of being blind. As the story continued, fear was a huge factor in the war, and even after the conflicts, fear still took over the remaining characters. Especially in Werner’s younger sister, Jutta, who lived to carry a son and marry a man. Fear was particularly present when Jutta is in a train with her son and a man joins them. Her reaction was “he sits beside her and lights a cigarette. Jutta clutches her bag between her knees; she is certain that he was wounded in the war, that he will try to start a conversation, that het deficient French will betray her.
Firstly, the book is very clear and to the point. This allows the reader to grasp her points and opinions easily, the author is an excellent writer, and that she has knowledge in the area being discussed. This can be seen very well in the introduction, where she states what the seven chapters in her book will be discussing. More importantly, she states which chapter she is going to discuss in the paragraph, and what it will
Robert Louis Stevenson, the author of this novella has written it very cleverly, with certain techniques used that have a greater impact on the reader and ones that make it more than just any thriller/shocker. Every novella has a purpose to it and so does this story, the purpose of this novella has been made to narrative the reader and it is quite clearly reflecting the genre of the thriller/shocker. As well as this the novella has been made as a shilling shocker which depends on sensationalism and represents an immoral lifestyle that may include violence in extremity.
Already I can tell that this book is more difficult than most other novels I have read. It seems as though Roth is in favor of using long sentences and complex vocabulary. I sometimes had to reread sentences a few times because there was difficult vocabulary I needed to look up and the sentences were long. I needed to read each sentence piece by piece to make sure I could understand what the author wanted to convey to the reader. Although the text seemed overwhelming when I read the first few pages; once I began reading sentences in increments I could more easily understand the text.
Adrian Flynn’s playwright “The Valley of the Fear”, adapted from the novel by Conan Doyle, demonstrates how the writer uses techniques to convey an impression of suspense and mystery through scenes with a high level of anticipation and uncertainty. Suspense is achieved through the use of literary devices and events that stimulate the viewer’s moods. Readers wait with anticipation for the next secret to be revealed in strong, sudden scenes. Furthermore, Doyle creates a sense of tension by never giving the reader an entire answer so they can make up their own mind about what’s happening.
