Book Report On For Whom The Bell Tolls - 779 words
The title For Whom the Bell Tolls symbolizes the uncertainty of life and destiny, where the main character in this story finds himself in a series of unpredictable situations that are beyond his control. The only certain event in life is death and knowing that this may happen to anyone at any time, renders the protagonist powerless against destiny, which he approaches with a fatalistic disposition. For Whom the Bell Tolls takes place in Spain, during the bloody civil war, between the years of 1938 and 1942. It unravels among people who live in the rural mountain areas of Spain. They were forced to kill others in order to survive and to defend their country from fascist. The environment where ...

Book Report On The Stranger - 1,532 words
An Exploration of The Stranger by Albert Camus The Stranger is a book of many facets and meanings most of which are not immediately apparent. In fact without in depth analysis the entire point of the book is easily missed. The manner of story telling in The Stranger is unique and at first hard to come to grips with. It is not the story which is especially complex but the manner in which it is told. It is done by a narrator. In his telling of his tale he neglects to mention several important aspects of his internal state, (which after a great deal of speculation seems to be what the book is really about). One soon learns that it is exactly that which is most important for complete understandi ...

Animal Farm Book Report - 871 words
Many authors write about topics that they know and about historical events that are going on while they write their story. In the book Animal Farm by George Orwell this is definitely true. Orwell modeled many of his characters after Russian leaders. He ingeniously depicts the troubles of Russia in a book about farm animals. The story begins with a prize winning boar named Old Major, he gathers all of the farm animals around to tell them of a dream that he has.

Book Report On The Story Of B - 613 words
The Story of B is the third book by Daniel Quinn that I have read. It is the story of Jared Osborne, a Laurentian Priest of the Roman Catholic Church, who discovers through his adventure that the world and church he believes in is not at all what he thinks it is. He is sent on a mission by the church to investigate a heretic who could turn out to be the anti-Christ. As he investigates and becomes part of the inner circle of a man called "B", his reality is tested and ultimately altered. He realizes that the Church is motivated by fear and greed rather then altruistic and divine intentions.

We Are Asked To Witness Book Report - 1,698 words
You Are Asked To Witness is a very well written and laid out piece of collaborative literature. The style is free flowing and it has excellent continuity even though it was written by multiple authors. I like how the book starts with the first contact with Xweltem and then continues through time to the present day. It goes through St:lō life, history, and culture in a very easy to read and straight forward manner. It also examines the consequences of the Xweltem influence on St:lo culture in a non-emotional approach. This made me feel as thought the authors were being honest and sincere in there attempt to help me understand what their history has actually been like, not what I have bee ...

Franklin Book Report - 589 words
Benjamin Franklin lived a highly productive life as a printer (as well as becoming an honored statesman) and he practiced living modestly, honestly and diligently. In his autobiography, written as a letter to his son, Franklin describes how he lived his life with a strong work ethic and moral character. Benjamin Franklin's autobiography illustrates some of the ideal aspects of the national character that we think of when asked to explain what the character of America is. Franklin wrote his autobiography as a letter to his son to describe his life and how he went from a wick-dipper to a respected member of early American society. He began with a somewhat detailed account of his family from th ...

For this assignment we are asked mainly to answer the questions given to use over the reading material, as a measure of accounting for each student completing the reading. In class we have briefly discussed these articles to the extent to figure out that most saw the article written by Walter Webb as being less than factual from a Historical context. On top of the use of unpoltically excepted terminology, Webbs use of out dated opinions and knowledge leads to reader to conclude that his particular piece should be taken with a grain of salt, and then compare to what factual knowledge the article by Licht has to say. Question number asks us to describe our definition of the region we consider ...

Utah Blaine Book Report - 1,054 words
In this book there were very few significant quotes. I struggled to find ten. One of them is, Lifes to important to lose it over this ........ ranch. This was said by Joe Neal. I agree with this because life it to important to risk over any material thing unless it is another life. Another quote is Good does not always win over evil. This was said by Utah Blaine when he was telling a story about a friend that had been killed and the killer got away with no consequences. I do not agree with this quote. The killer may have gotten away but his consequence will be burning in hell. One of my favorite quotes in this book is, Never go out and look for trouble, because if you wait long enough it wi ...

The Monster Of A Book Report - 564 words
The book Monster by Christopher Pike was an excellently written story of unimaginable terror and intrigue. He developed his main characters thoroughly and (although most of them died) put them to good use throughout the book. The book truly did consist of "monsters", and he proved it many times over. "It began with blood. It would end the same way." That is a direct quote taken from the first page of the book. The main character of Monster was a girl of about eighteen, named Angela Warner. She had moved to a town called Point from Chicago to live with her grandfather. Her best friend was Mary, whom played an excellent part in the plot. The descriptions in the first scene were excellent, and ...

Book Report On The Road To Mekkah - 1,445 words
In Road to Makkah, the reader is initially confronted with a protagonist who is on a journey through the deserts of Saudi Arabia. However, as one continues to read the book, the reader is aware that there are actually two parallel journeys going on: the journey through the deserts of Saudi Arabia, and also the journey through the life of Muhammad Asad on his way to Islam. At first I found the book rather hard to follow because of the constant cutting from desert scenes to the description of the life he left behind in Europe, but once I got past this initial hurdle, the two plots no longer posed a problem to my understanding of Muhammad Asad's life. Following the author's journey from Europe ...

H2>Setting The story occurs in the imaginary worldMiddle-earthcreated by the author, it is appropriate since creatures that are found in the book (e.g., goblins and dwarves) do not exist in our world. Since the story happens in many places over Middle-earth the author gives a deep description only in places where important things to the plot happen but in other places he gives a more general description. Most places make the reader have a picture in his brain of them; the author uses the appropriate words and gives good descriptions. It takes the story about a year to occur. It starts at the spring and ends in about the same time the year after. Parts of the story take place in every time of ...
