    The Westing Game plot summary

    Recently, I read The Westing Games, by Ellen Raskin.  I did not like this book. I think they didn’t develop the characters well and the plot made no sense. I think it would have worked better as a longer...

  • I think that they should be used for the police but should not be released to the general public. The reason for this Is you don’t know who you might be scarring for life.

    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.

  • I think that it should be up to the business if they use cash or not but if it is something that is an essential business I would say that cash and card should be allowed.

    1984 plot analysis

    Recently, I read 1984, by George Orwell.  I appreciated this book. I thought that the way it described human nature and power structure was very informative The protagonist is Winston. His story is set in Oceania, specifically Within the boundaries of...

    • Thanks for your post. I look forward for more post about 1984. I like how you summarize the passage almost as if i’m reading the book!

    • Dear Leo:
      I am interested with your post, “1984 plot analysis,” because it is a perspective of someone that you don’t get often.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “I thought that the way it described human nature and power structure was very informative” I think this is important because you get to see the power that people have over others in different countries.

      Another sentence that I seen was: “he falling action ultimately resolves the conflict. He is put at peace with being stripped of his humanity. It may not be happy to the reader but for Winston it is his only hope of peace. It’s Winston vs the society he was born into. It is a story that is a reminder that freedom is one of our great privileges.” This stood out for me because you can see that he gave up on fighting the whole country.

      I do agree with you that freedom is a privileges. One reason I say this is that in some countries leaders control the media. Another reason I agree with you is that in america we can say or do what we want and not be silenced by the government but others in other places do not have this privilege.

      Have you seen that in north korea the Internet is not accessible to the lower class. ? I thought you might be interested in this because of the book you have read, north korea doesn’t let people talk bad about their leader.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because of the types of books that you have shared. -Alex C

    I think that is also important to mention that she killed coin because she saw that she was not looking for equality. This relates to now because it is important that we don’t try to become more powerful we should try to make everybody equal.

    Leo commented on the post, Harry Potter Response

    This would leave the reader excited because when he gets to Hogwarts is when everything cool happens. Also the way he finds out he got in is cool.

  • I really like how you explained American values. I feel like it is important to know what drives Americans. This way it will be easier to understand our country.

    Momo by Michael Ende

    The first chapter of Momo by Michael Ende might leave a reader feeling relaxed because Momo is very calm and quiet and readid about her will make you feel relaxed. An example of this is on page 14.  "...

    Momo, by Micheal Ende, I just finished the book. One thing that I noticed about the book is that it relates to quarantine because it is all about taking advantage of the time you have and enjoying instead of worrying about the wrong things.
