It greatly influences the story, what will happen in the story, and what theme the story will communicate. The extremely solid characterization of the two main characters, Doodle and his brother, leads to the finale, which communicates the theme. The clear mistakes made in the story, like the excessive and unsupervised rehabilitation of Doodle, that occur because of the characters characterization, really show the reader what the main characters did wrong, and shows that to the reader not to do it either.

Feed, a dystopian novel written by M.T. Anderson is based on information technology and data mining in a failing futuristic society. The novel describes Titus and his friends living their lives by suggestions, such as advertisements, from the feed, as well as the knowledge that the feed not only provides them with information instantly, but manipulates their decision making. The dialogue in this novel is distinguished because Anderson has the ability to draw in readers with quick dialogue, unique slang, curse words and grammatically incorrect language. However, this reflects the way the feed has degraded the vocabulary and intelligence of those who have it.

The opening passage of the novel, Kiss of the Fur Queen by Tomson Highway, conjures the perfect amount of adventure and thrill to entice the reader into wanting to discover the rugged race’s outcome. Thanks to Highway’s use of the literary devices, repetition and simile, the passage fatally cuts at the reader’s emotions with its jagged edges located in between the lines. These two elements three-dimensionalize the story – echoing desperation, yet hope, in such a harsh and lifeless environment. Moreover, the author’s use of repetition and similes build many layers onto the story, giving its surrounding structure a deeper, more significant meaning.

It is believed that the abstract nature of human is adhered to discovery; however, ladies and gentlemen the act of discovery is visible in various forms one of which is the discovery of loss. The discovery of loss can be confronting, as it transfer the hatred of the composers through his or her productions, allowing us and their contextual responders to discover the mistreatments and ultimately alter our moral perceptions. This notion is explored in these three texts, Municipal gum and Acacia Ridge composed by the Oodegroo Noonucal in 1960s and
The second technique the author employs is irony as an effective literary device useful for giving the story many unexpected twists and turns. It is applied to give the reader a clue on something that is occurring that the characters in the story are not aware of. For example, “For the third time Lee has indeed proven he is indeed a champion…” the reader is aware of Lees’ manipulative nature and that he is in fact a cheater and in no sense of the word a champion.
