“Well, sir, [he] spent one summer playing with Barbie dolls and practicing making [his] body into a K”. This shows that the main character is very sarcastic and a little bit arrogant, for he feels that he is too mature for his job. As Ken and Elizabeth continue on with their walk, they come to a tunnel. It was the same tunnel where Ken use to play as a kid, the same tunnel that gave him claustrophobia because of his frightening repressed memories.

A chance to begin again in a golden age of opportunity and adventure” with a cliché voice and cheesy slogan to reflect his animosity to the 20th century and it’s increasingly dishonest and greedy approaches to selling products.

In the paper Attention Deficit: The Brain Syndrome of Our Era, the author Richard Restak describes the potential health hazards that developing technology and the advancement of modernity in our society today has on human brains.

This paper attempt to record the subaltern sensibilities and concerns noticed in Aravind Adiga’s Booker Prize winning novel The White Tiger that has derived much acclaim and criticism alike. In this debut novel, Aravind Adiga takes on some hefty issues: the unhappy division of social classes into haves and have-nots, the cultural imperialism of the First World, the anger that seethes among the world's dispossessed, the avarice of the Indian elite among whom bribes are commonplace, and the caprice of those who perpetuate a system in which many are sacrificed to the whims of a few.
