Both Orwell and Dillard are very good at crafting a story from memory. They both use methods of story telling that engages the reader and makes you want to read more. Orwell carefully uses his words to give you as much feeling and thought as you read his story; where as Dillard writes her story in a way that progresses it with just enough information to keep the story fast and interesting. I believe that I write my stories more in the way Dillard does than Orwell. I usually write a story using minimal information and using just enough atmosphere so that you know what is happening as the story progresses.
Meursault is the complete opposite; he lives in the moment and goes along with things without thinking them through. He is neither a controlling nor an overly organised man and seems to live with the basic necessities. Significant events like marriage or a parent’s death would normally have a massive impact on the individual person, but for Meursault, this is not so. Significant events such as these do not seem to matter to him on any sort of sentimental level. For example, he did not react how people expected him to over his mother’s death in the beginning of the book, instead of being

The young pastor suffers endlessly throughout the book. In contrast to the strong willed Hester, Dimmsdale is seen as quite cowardly. He shies away from the letter. This demonstrates that he doesn’t like to show himself for who he is. Since he is more weak spirited than Hester, as shown in “His spirit lacked the strength that could have borne up, as thine has been, beneath a burden like thy scarlet letter," (ch.14) The letters weight affects him more.
George does not care about Lennie’s situation and he trust in him as Lennie trust in George. In chapter four, the George says, “A guy needs somebody-to be near him” shows that people need other people to be strong and take better decisions. No matter who is that person and how smart is he or she. George does not care about who Lennie is and he considered Lennie his friend, showing that intelligence is not everything. All Lennie actions show his innocence.
Alienation Holden Caulfield, an interesting man, shows that many people show phoniness and how Holden despises them to a point where he alienates them. This book shows many themes, one of them being revolving around alienation and phoniness. J.D. Salinger’s masterpiece The Catcher in the Rye shows throughout the book that Holden alienates himself from other people because he fears the phoniness of adults. Stradlater, Holden’s roommate, shows phoniness by how he is a “secret slob” also how it annoys Holden to where he gets into a fight with Stradlater over his sloppiness with Jane, which leads Holden to alienating him.

Howard Roark is the novel's personification of the perfect man.
17). This describes how he fails with girls: he either scares them or he is too immature in the way he talks to them. It makes him depressed that Sally would not want to go with him because he thinks there is nothing more to do in life so why not just get away from it. Holden is depressed due to disappointment because he feels that he cant do anything right. One of the many examples of this is when he
Well in dystopian stories the main character is the protagonist, the person identifying the problem and trying to do something about it. In 1984 the protagonist is Winston Smith, an older gentleman, very smart, has an ulcer in his ankle, and he notices the little lies and repeat lies that Big Brother tells to the people. The way that Orwell portrays Winston is to be weak and even though Winston rebels against and hates the party, he just seems to be a man that will always have a problem with the party, but never go head to head, a coward. Though on the other hand in The Giver, Jonas the protagonist, is a young, smart kid, and different from the rest. From the very beginning a reader knew he was different when he described the changes of objects, meaning he saw color, but clearly he didn't know what he saw.
He does, however try to give these women a chance to almost prove to him that they aren’t phonies, but almost every single time he is disappointed. This leads him to conclude that all of them are phonies. He also believes that the adult world is so full of phonies that the people living in that world can’t even see what they have become, making him lose even more respect for people who are older than himself. He is scared of growing up, and because of this, he reacts negatively towards people who are older than he. Because of this, it’s almost impossible for him to trust or respect women.
