Journal 1 Lewis, John, Andrew Aydin. “March: Book One”, August 13, 2013 Reading this book before my first year in college, I never notice the full meaning of the March book cover. March was written by John Lewis and told about his experience with segregation. Unfortunately, it's only a small portion of the story but there's enough information in it to help us understand what was going on at the time. He designed the cover of the memoir a certain way.
The narrator refers to himself very infrequently in the novel, and some details he adds to the novel as the narrator are very strange. For example, when describing Una, he writes, “I never knew Una. She was dead before I remember, but George Hamilton told me about it many years later…” (pg 276). This statement does not add a lot to the chapter, and is an example of how inconsistently Steinbeck uses the first person narrator. However, there is also a chapter that is entirely about the war and how the
The first thing that YOU MUST DO IS CHOOSE a theme that exists within the novel and then what three aspects of the hero’s journey you will focus on to support this theme. Keep in mind that all three should not come from the first few chapter of the novel. Your 3 aspects of the hero’s journey should show an understanding of the novel as a whole and the progression of your hero and the theme.

<br> <br>Many years ago, I read my first book by Ayn Rand, Anthem. When I decided to write an essay on Anthem, I needed to re-read it to refresh my memory.

I don't know if I understand this right or not. Honestly, I didn't get it. - Yirong I found Return to White Earth a very interesting story. I found it interesting when John Rodgers returned home and had to learn/re-learn everything about his own culture. How he was taught to strip bark and everything to survive off the land.
However, the way they presented the book and the styles of writing are very different. One should be focus on the purpose of writing these books in order to compare them. Bernier wrote this book as if it was the diary for his stay in Mogul Empire. I assumed that he did not have any plan to see or to do in Mogul Empire. Professor Liu once mentioned that “the doctor travelled without purpose.” It is the main reason why we can read a lot of random materials in this book.
Richtofen continued his teleporter tests with Schuster behind Maxis' back. Richtofen was the first human test subject and was first sent to the M.P.D., which he believed to be of alien origin. When he touched it, he felt static and started hearing whispering. He was then teleported to a jungle. Dr. Scheuster got worried and planned to scrap the teleporter when Richtofen had been gone for a few days, but he returned as Schuster was talking about it and told him that there was work to be done.
