I need to learn to get use to books that I never imagined me reading because I don’t have a choice but to do it. Also, I would get very lazy to even try to take a glimpse at the text because I’m not use to reading the books the teachers like to read. My last goal is too use context clues. This is not a big deal but I would like to get a little better at it. When I am answering questions about the book, I don’t pay attention to the big clues.
Because he is thinking to himself the story seems disjointed leaving the reader with a lot of unanswered questions that only to which only the narrator knows the answers. Why is this girl coming over? Why would some parent just be dropping her off? Is this a date? If the story had been written in first or third person point of view, I think we would understand a lot of the protagonist’s motivation.
A drawback of Fleming’s work was that he kept changing his mind in his published book on how he discovered penicillin, this led people to believe that he was lying and caused people to not trust his work. Even though Fleming discovered penicillin, he did not develop his work because it was too difficult to make and store. But his work led to the development of penicillin. In the 1930’s Florey
A reverse effect has been that this incident caused people to put themselves on the waiting list to borrow the novel, when there were none before. | 1.

It is usually the author who evokes characters, so it is pointed out that Joe is creating his own story and its truths. Joe is an unreliable, as we sometimes question whether he is going insane rather than it just being Jed, for example when he keeps seeing things in the library. Clarissa asks him “which way this fixation runs” which forces us as readers to revaluate Joe’s reliability as a narrator. Jean Logan is part of the subplot that reflects the main plot. Like Joe, she is in a stressful situation that causes her to doubt the loyalty of her husband, like Joe does with Clarissa.
To be completely honest, I didn’t want any part of this book. I already didn’t like history and now my father is forcing me to read the giant book filled with giant words. So I read this book, but I wasn’t really paying any attention to what I was reading. I just wanted to get it all over with. But now, as I am putting this report together, I am amazed.
The abundance of interpretations and critical analyses of The Turn of the Screw points out the ambiguity of Henry James's writing style. The reality of the ghosts, their character, the nature of their relationship with the children, the type of corrupting influence they exert on the children and the reason behind Miles's dismissal are some of the ambiguous topics which have been at the centre of countless critical essays. While the reality of the ghosts can be questioned in light of the narrator's reliability, the other ambiguities mentioned above all appear in some of the governess's conversations with Mrs Grose and Miles, however, they are never tackled in an explicit or unequivocal manner. Indeed, gaps occur because the use of vague words, indefinite articles and blanks contributes to the ambiguities of the story, rather than helping to give a definite interpretation. While the reality of the ghosts and therefore their identity is questionable, it does affect the interpretation of the influence that they allegedly exert on the children.
Their mother considered them to be one person because they were so much alike and called them “HannahAnna.” Hannah and Anna start to realize they are not one person, but two separate people. With all the noises and strange occurrences you start to try and figure out is someone or something trying to separate them and why. While reading The Girl Behind the Glass by Jane Kelley, readers get involved with trying to figure out who is this ghost and why is this happening. Readers also are trying to gain an understanding about what families experience when life doesn't go the way they have planned. I would suggest this book to read as it is a book that always keeps readers wondering and interested because there are surprises in every chapter.
Dear Editor: Censorship in public libraries is inconsiderable, unreasonable, and absurd. It must be eliminated from the minds of our town council. If a book is not acceptable for patrons under eighteen, I feel either the patron’s parents or the patron himself should decide so. The town council and the public library have no idea whether a patron is responsible enough to read a book with possible adult themes. Censorship is also ridiculous because most classic novels involve questionable language, or somewhat violent material.
Without it, I feel so alone, and I’ve always believed that I need someone to be happy. But it was a wake up call for me when I’ve read that phrase in the book The Secret. I realized everything I’ve assumed concerning my happiness was wrong, and I have to do something to make it right. Getting hurt is inevitable, even ‘Christmas day’ was not an exemption. I was just not ready yet when he asked me that night to let him go.
