  • Dear Matthew:

    I am interested with your post, “Plot Analysis of 12 Angry Men” because the protagonist sounds very interesting.

    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “He is upset trying to figure out how he can explain why the boy is not guilty of killing his father.He meets these forces and pressures by deciding to take every…Read More

    Dear Hai-Cheng:

    I am interested with your post, “Survival!,” because the protagonist seems very interesting.

    One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is, “The significance of the setting shifting from the airport to a forest is to show Brain’s true nature.” I think this is interesting because I want to know what Brain’s true n…Read More

    Dear Issy:

    I am interested about your post, “Harry Potter Response,” because you make the book sound very exciting and I think that other people would also be interested in reading it.

    One sentence you wrote that stands for me was: “An example of this is on page 31. ‘Scuse me, but is one of you Mr. H Potter? Only I got about a hundred of…Read More

    The Lightning Theif

    Percy is a dynamic character. His archetype changes over the course of the book. At the beginning of the book, he is the archetypal “the fool”. This can be seen on page 54 , where the author writes: ”I started...

    • Although I have not seen the books I know some information from the movies. Percy had a great transformation showing he is truly a great protagonist. Your essay was well written and informing.

    • Dear Ian,
      I was really excited when I saw your post because I also enjoy reading Rick Riordan’s books. I just want to say that you are completely right about Percyś Jackson character change. He goes from being a troubled kid which wasn’t his fault to then becoming one of the most acknowledged demigods at the only age of 12. He proves himself as the end of the series as he is given the opportunity to become a God. However he declines because his heart didn´t desire glory but he had gained friends, his girlfriend, and his family were okay. This just speaks of his great heart and character. I hope I hear from you again.

    • Dear Ian,
      I am a fan of this book series and of the movies. I enjoyed reading your post because it made me remember back on when I read them for the first time. You are definitely right about how he changes throughout the story. His character development occurs throughout his experiences and what he is forced to go through. As you said, he stops being a troubled student with low self-esteem, to a young man who takes pride in his identity and has a different mindset. I enjoyed reading this, I also look forward to seeing what you post next. I also have a question for you; since you wrote about a book, are you a book worm, or did you just write about it because you happened to have read it?

    • I think that you really explained the turning point of the character well. I like how you described what he used to be like and what made him what he is like now. This was a well written essay and you analyzed the book well.

    • Good job on the evidence. Very detailed and informative.

    • I was super excited to read your post about the Percy Jackson book because I love them and you explained Percys character very well. I totally agree with the point that he’s labeled as this clumsy “fool” in the beginning of the book but as time goes on he grows into more of a hero with talent and gains respect from all the others. This character development is super satisfying and you explained it super well in this post.

    • Dear ian
      I am very interested in your poem, “The Lightning Thief ,” because you used great evidence to back up your claim.One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Percy is no longer the person who gets bad grades and gets kicked out of school for bad behavior.” I think this is true because in the book he changed a lot from the beginning to the end.

    • What’s good Ian I like your post I think you did a good job explaining how the book excites you and what caught your attention also, you did a good job overall explaining what’s going on in the book and by just reading your post I felt hooked into the book without it actually in front of me. “The book’s first paragraphs might leave a reader feeling intrigued because this story brings together people who don’t know each other but are now stuck in this cabin together trying to survive from an unwanted guest who is trying to murder the guests.” This quote had me feeling really engaged because I wanted to read what came next and see if the characters made it out.

    • Dear Ian,
      I am interested with your post because I like to read mystery books. I like the way you were able to describe the book to people who have not read the book yet. I’m interested to read this book.
      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “This is exciting because readers would want to read and find out what the characters do next to find out if this was an accident or if this was a murder and find out what happening to them.” I think this is interesting because it makes me wonder what happens. It seems as if it was a murder.
      Your post reminds me of something that happened to someone I know. One time They were walking there dog and they noticed that someone weird was following them for awhile so they decided to start running. The person following them also starts running which is really weird. The person stop following them when they got onto the main road.
      Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I wonder what happens at the end of the book and how the author decides to end it.

    Dear Jaylene,

    I am interested in your post because Ivy seems like a very nice and kind person, but Iris is trying to get people to hate Ivy. I want to know why she is like this and if she just did this for fun or is there actually something wrong with Iris.

    • Dear Ian,

      I like the way you described what she was going through and her depression because it showed part of the reason that she acted the way she did. The way you put it in got me wondering and wanting to find out more so I might just read it as well.

    • Dear Ian
      I am interested in your post because what you described makes me want to read the book and find out more about Anne and the book in general

      One thing you said that stands out for me is: “Her depression comes into play here when they go back to their house after the party and Cora is gone. Since she already had depression before this, the loss of her daughter really made her sad and she started breaking down crying and getting mad at Marco.” I think this is sad because Anne lost her daughter which does not help with the fact that she has depression.

      Thanks for your project. I look forward to seeing what you write next because of how you describe the books you read.

    • Dear Ian,

      I am interested on this post because it really makes me wanna learn more about the character Anne’s traits.

      One thing that stand out to me was where you wrote “Her depression comes into play here when they go back to their house after the party and Cora is gone.” i wonder what happened that day, why did her depression come to her?

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this post seems really interesting i would definitely would be reading this book.

    I’m on part 17 of Someone we Know by Shari Lapena. I am surprised because I expected that Amanda was having an affair, but I never thought it would be with Paul because he had a wife and kid.

    Ian is feeling Confused

    I’m on part 10 of Someone We Know by Shari Lapena. I’m confused because the mother wrote letters to all of the people who’ve had their houses broken into by Rayleigh. She wrote these letters of apology thinking that it was a good idea.

    Someone We Know, Shari Lapena, end of part 2/42. I was shocked because they confirmed that Rayleigh was breaking into houses and I was also shocked that’s he wasn’t stealing anything, but going into people’s computers.

    Ian is feeling Surprised

    Someone We Know, Shari Lapena, beginning of part 2/42 I was surprised that Rayleigh got a message asking if he broke in and got anything good because his mother just staged that he was a well-behaved child.

    • Dear Ian,
      The book sounds very exciting and interesting. Mystery and thriller books are very interesting and this books seems like a book worth reading from how you described it. One thing you said that stands out for me is “What’s probably going to happen next is that they will realize that the deaths of the guests are not accidents, but murders and they will have to do their best to try to not get murdered and make it out alive.” What you said has me interested in reading the book and reading about the characters. This book reminds me of another book I’ve read called the lost where two girls were abducted and have to escape from their tormentors. Thanks for the great information on the book, I’d definitely check it out.

    I am happy with your post, “Confederate Monuments of America”, because I agree with you that the only we can move forward as a country is by removing the confederate monuments from our cities and leaving it where it belongs.
