What is good literature? Is it a matter of opinion? Yes, it is a matter of opinion, but to me, good literature is a work of art that comes to life. Good literature tells a story while creating a memory for the reader. This aspect makes the person reading the book have a flashback of the story every once in a while but remember it as a real life moment instead of just another book.

Overall, the author was trying to convince that eventually the society will begin to see gaming as something better than reading books. I think the writer provided the facts of both reading and gaming to make a realistic approach towards the reader.

The student, who reads a novel when he ought to be working, not only neglects to learn his lesson, but at the same time learn idle habits, Nor is he case much better if he devotes most of his legitimate leisure hours to reading fiction. The interest of many novels is so intense that it exhausts the brain even more than study. After an hour or two of recreation in the open air we return to our studies refreshed and vigorously; after the same time devoted to an exciting work of fiction, we are not much more capable of brain-work than we should have been if we had gone on studying continuously without any interval. These remark, however, only apply to immoderate

Are they really true? The answer is no. Reading books gives us a lot of benefits which we can see below. By reading books, we can open our mind broadly about many things surround us.
The novel is narrated by him in the most colloquial of styles and it is obvious that his view on things could be an exaggerated truth in reality. In the novel Holden jumps to the conclusion that he was betrayed by an old teacher Mr. Antolini but taking into account his opinions and actions in the novel I feel that he was incorrect in forming that view for several reasons.

However, it seems like not many people take the time to witness this or even care about the value of life. I believe that no one should take their life for granted. In Hamlet’s soliloquy, the author expressed his negative way of thinking about life and for him the easiest way to avoid suffering is suicide.

Being in classes that required me to read specific books made the biggest difference, because I had to read books that I would usually never read. Being thrown into this literary journey from a young age and only building it up over time helped me overcome my fear of misinterpretation. Another book that helped shape me is The Art Of The Personal Essay by Phillip Lopate. Composed of many different passages with different authors, I got an insight to professional and thought-provoking works of art. The most effective kind of writing for me is when there is meaning and something I can take out of what I read.
