Fried Green Tomatoes Homosexual Relationship
1,641 wordsMy first impression of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Caf'e was that it was a "woman's" novel. This was because the movie, which was more popular than the book, was advertised as a "chick flick." To say the least, I was wrong. The novel poses many issues that face the people of the 1920 's and 30 's, and makes one think about what people have struggled through. The novel addresses the issue of racism before the time of Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement. It tells of t...

World War Ii Heller
1,295 wordsCatch- 22: A Study in Post-War Attitudes by Chris Nicholson In 1961, Joseph Heller published Catch- 22, his first novel.

Feel About The Book Don T Catch
615 wordsI would have to say that Joseph Heller? s Catch- 22, was at least enjoyable to read. There were several aspects about it that made it good and bad at the same time. First, I think the most important thing aspect to look at, is that Heller makes death, a traditionally sickening topic, a humorous event. It is humorous because of the way he illustrates who is crazy. I assumed that Yossarian was the insane one in the beginning. Now, I can? t say that I am sure. I like how this book makes the reader ...

Catcher In The Rye Rest Of The World
572 wordsIn the novel, The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield finds himself a protector of innocence.

Or, at least, to keep these people pure, and innocent, in his mind. In this way, I believe Holden Caulfield is one of the most complex characters that we have read about, in school. The act of Holden giving his red hunting cap to Ph...
