But other than that I have really loved this book mainly because of the mystery behind the story. I couldn’t let the book down since I started reading it. It puts you at the edge of your seat which made me love it so much. I would rate this book a 10 out of 10. I also liked one quote from this novel “That’s what being crazy was, wasn’t it?
A Book Of Hilarious Stories: Me Talk Pretty One Day When they say don’t judge a book by its cover, Me Talk Pretty One Day is definitely a book you want to be sure to go by this rule. When picking this book I was really hesitant because the cover looked as if it were going to be uninteresting. Little did I know it would be full of laughter and leave me wanting to read more and more. I loved it! Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris is a book of short stories that is separated into two parts.
Nevertheless, this is the precisely the beauty of this anthology. The stories provide fresh and novel perspectives on common relationships found in all of the readers’ lives. Carver leaves every story slightly “up in the air”, in a way that is very thought-provoking. I found myself needing to put down the book several times and think about questions that had arisen, which was unexpected. His simplistic and to-the-point nature of writing allows the reader to focus truly on the important skeleton of the stories, avoiding wordiness and unnecessary details that are typical of some classic stories.
Your first thought after reading the title of this short story may have been that it is going to be a romantic love story. We have all read stories and watched movies about fairytales that all had happy endings, but this story is much different. In this particular short story it is about the love that two teenagers share for one another. The relationship between the two completely shades all the other important aspects in their lives. The young couple China and Jeremy were always together, they did everything together.
Hautman's writing style is quite straight-forward, occasionally humorous, and attention-grabbing. Surrounding an array of thoughts and ideas that are bound to echo with its readers, and by re-examining important events in the history of humankind and their ripple effect on our lives makes it even more better, it's a thoughtful, detailed and absolutely unforgettable story. His writing incorporates many different ideas from his other books, and his stories have many chapters with few pages. I have read many novels by different authors, but I haven’t read this good a novel from any author except Pete
I found I could relate to what the author was saying about being a teenager and many of the studies and information she gives were interesting and I found myself saying oh that’s true, teenagers do, do that. Also the fact that I am comparing fiction to non-fiction was a plus because it would make this project much simpler. I was also surprised to find so many similarities between the movie and book. Some of the things Rosalind Wiseman writes are used word for word in the movie. And the only key difference I could find was that as I mentioned before, the book is non-fiction while the movie is fiction.
However I enjoyed reading the book, because the main idea of”POWER OF THINKING WITHOUT THINKING” is very interesting and very different. I personally love such topics. With all his stories author has achieved his goal of educating his readers about the new way of thinking. I got learn many things from the book. Being in the hotel industry ill relate all of his examples and ideas in delighting my guests.
Example would be; best book sellers, self-help videos-with titles like men are mars, women are from venus. Of course, the question is an age old one. Nevertheless, people nearly always seem to be interested in new (and often old, disguised as new) perspectives about how and why men and women are so different. The talk of differences is so common that the assumption is rarely questioned. One problem with much of the talk about sex/gender differences is the facility with which gender stereotypes can be unintentionally reinforced.
Alyssa Rosenberg looks at the implications of Jezebel’s troll crisis: The Jezebel staffers’ complaint [that their parent company isn't blocking porn-bearing trolls] raises a broader issue. As publications have struggled to figure out what will reliably draw in both readers and advertisers on the Internet, feminist posts have emerged as a clear success story, one that provokes a unique response, both positive and negative. Feminist political commentary, feminist cultural criticism and women’s first-person narratives and personal essays have all done well in this challenging new ecosystem, even as they have inspired a particularly ferocious backlash. Many online publications have been willing to profit from these positive responses, but they have been slow to protect the writers and editors who must deal with ugly responses. Rosenberg expands on the economics of women-oriented journalism: One of the attractions of feminist writing is that it can be inexpensive to produce.
Peer reviews were difficult for me, because I do not think of myself as a very critical person, but the course overall was very helpful. The first, and my personal favorite would be the explanatory essay. I enjoy reading, and I liked the fact that I could reflect on the book as a whole, giving my thoughts on the events as they were unfolding. The more I wrote, the more defined my opinions became, and the more confident my writing grew. Where I stated, “I believe this novel was Bronte’s life work, masterpiece, and what she felt about this world in general,” is a prime example of my explanation of the novel.
