    Discuss Nick Hornby s presentation of Marcus in chapters 1-10 of About a Boy

    4 star(s)

    they should gel and stay together. "He'd once shared a toilet with Roger, when they were both busting for a pee after a car journey. You'd think that if you'd peed with someone you ought to keep in touch with them somehow." This logical thinking by Marcus suggest that he had thought about future with his mum and Roger, and that Roger would stay because of the family relationship that they all shared. The second reason why I believe he has a logical process is the pizza incident happens.

    Dramatic Impact in Act 3 of The Crucible

    4 star(s)

    which lowers the tension then Fransis shws his deposition and the tension and expectation rises again. Most of the act rises and falls in this manner. This technique emphasizes the dramatic points in the play because it sort of isolates them between parts that aren't so dramatic. All the little high drama points in the act are leading to the main one in the end. The 3 depositions, Nurse's, Giles's and Mary's, create huge drama in the way that they are presented and out hopes are raises that the court will see justice and then turned down by the court for a small reason.

    Religion in Life of Pi

    4 star(s)

    The second story is a story of "dry, yeastless factuality" (Martel 64). He shows that people who have faith will choose the fanciful story. By using the two different stories it becomes apparent that the fantastical version makes a better and more beautiful story. Pi tells the story of the animals so he can cope with the reality of the horrific truth. Martel asks, "...which story do you prefer?"(Martel 317). Martel wants there to be a choice between the two stories.

    How does the character of Stanley Yelnats change in "Holes"?

    3 star(s)

    He'd lost a lot of weight." This shows that his experiences digging holes and eating smaller meals from cans have made him thinner and fitter. His fitness has improved throughout the novel. Stanley and his father have always been very discouraged with luck, sometimes so much that they became, "so discouraged that they actually started to believe in the curse." Stanley relies on the curse as an explanation for all of his bad luck. The curse has apparently been in the family for generations, set because his great-great grandfather stole a pig from a gypsy.

    Shadow of the minotaur essay

    3 star(s)

    The main character in the book is a boy named Phoenix. At the start of the novel, he is not a very strong character; he gets bullied at school, he doesn't have many friends and the only thing that cheers him up is when he is playing guinea pig of 'the game': "Nobody would believe me when I told them what a freak of nature you are. Now they've found out for themselves... Go on free knickers, give us all a laugh.

    Opinionative review on 'The Curious Dog in the Nighttime'

    4 star(s)

    People shouldn't feel the need to change their opinions or feel any disadvantage because of the views or likes of others, nor should they be ridiculed for their choices and lifestyle. Just because a person has a disability or a different skin colour, doesn't mean they should be treated differently to others; they should be accepted as the unique human being that they are. Throughout the book, Haddon effectively used the most diverse characters to convey his messages. Haddon uses Christopher, a teenage boy suffering from autism, to convey his messages to the reader.
