People advocate for more reliable euthanasia/physician-assisted suicide to guard against these possibilities.
Why would you kill a dog? a) Because you hated the dog…” (p.42) This quote demonstrates Christopher’s thought process. In my opinion, Christopher tends to think illogically when he feels frightened and more clearly when he is not. Throughout the novel you see Christopher as being quite insensitive to other people's emotions, nonetheless, if you look deeper into some of his actions, you will see his he is also hypersensitive to certain things. One of Christopher’s biggest demonstrations of sentiment is with when he finds Wellington “I

This book conveys a mood of sadness and hope at the same time; towards the end it conveys a fearful mood as Lennies life came to an end.
In each piece of writing the authors characters are based on real people, some were closer than others. They show how death is near anyone and that it is going to be a hard road to go down. In Dylan Thomas’ poem “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night,” he shows that his father’s death is going to be painful. He stats that, “Old age should burn and rave at close of day.” What he means by “close of day,” is the end of life. and that when coming to the end of life its not going to be easy , its going to be painful in some way, not all physical but even mental.
