you ever wanted to be called a wacky name such as "hamstergirl" or "Doggyboy'o"? Well, there is one character I like in the story that has a name that is weird as ever. The main character of The Outsiders is Ponyboy. Pony boy goes on a wild adventure. as part of the greasers, Pony boy goes through a lot of changes and emoytional prombles that he has faced. I like how Ponyboy goes through thes changes because he changes his hair style, Two of his friends from the gresers died, and being diffrent showed him his identity.
First of all,
I like how Pony boy changes his hairstyle. He got the name "PonyBoy" because of the way his has hair, and also because he is a greaser. Ponyboy's hair was 1st greasy, brown, and all in the back. But, changing his hair is one thing he didn't want because it shows people he is a greaser. When he ran away with Johnny, Another memeber of the gresers, Ponyboy had to change his identity. Ponyboy had a choice to either change his identity, or keep his hair. he decided to change his hair because it will let people know that it is not him (But it will embaress him). Ponyboy washed his hair with a special bleach, and it turned his hair into a glowing yelloowish color. This is why I like how Ponyboy changes his style because he was hiding his identity from being killed by any of the socs
I like how ponyboy's emotions change when his friends die at the end. After being burned in the church, Johnny was slowly dieng. Ponyboy was scared as ever to lose Johnny because he wasn't just a greaser, he was also his friend and mostly the only one he could talk to in the story. Johnny did die though, and ponyboy was upset and sad. One of Ponyboy's other friend was Dallas. Dallas was a crazy type of greaser, but he was there for both Ponyboy and Johnny. When Dallas died, he was chased and gunned down by the cops. Ponyboy was friends with Dallas because ponyboy really liked hanging out with someone who is unreliable and doesn't need anybody's help to get himself out of any situations. Dallas emotions changed too because he really was friend with Johnny, with ponyboy, and with most of the greasers. It really showed Ponyboy that it's hard to be a greaser, but you got fight for it. I really like when Ponyboy went through this because he started to have a diffrent feeling, and that is to care about everyone who is there for you.
I like how that being someone else showed Ponyboy to be unique with the identity. What these means is that ponyboy acts pretty much diffrently when he really wasn't himself. When he 1st encounetred the socs, and the socs were about to cut his hair, he was both scared and angry. he didn't want the socs to ever touch his hair, because his hair defines him as a greaser. But after he ecaped with johnny, his hair really dind't matter to him as much. When his friends are there with them, he plays around and likes to fight with them. But since two them died, Ponyboy felt sad, upset, and confused because those were his friend, and they reaaly ment a lot to him as both a greser and someone who can hang out with and talk to. This is why I like Ponyboy being very difrrent than he normally is because he started to realize what really matter to him.
As you can see,
Ponyboy went through a lot in The Outsiders. He changed his haair style because his life was at stake. He changed his emotions when Johnny and Dally friend died because he loved them as a group, as individuals, and as greaser. Ponyboy acted diffrently when he changed his identity because he started to realize what really matters. I reall enjoyed this book, and it taught me to think about what is important when you choose right/wrong.
"There was things which he stretched, but he mainly told the truth. That is nothing. I never seen anybody but lied one time or another..,"
Do you belie...more"There was things which he stretched, but he mainly told the truth. That is nothing. I never seen anybody but lied one time or another..,"
Do you believe that the narrator is creating a meaning in the beginning of the whole story? I really can't say, but "that ain't no matter". mark Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" gives an authentic tale about the main character, Huck Finn. This young boy takes matter in his own hands and sets out to escape from his homeland, be a freeman, and becoming someone different. You are thinking in your little minds and saying "who the heck is Huck Finn, and how does he become different when he does go out in the world on his own?" Well, Huck isn't just another small white boy. He is the greatest, and uses his plans to get himself out of many situations. Huck's Adventures gives a big humor because Huck gets away with many things he faces. His quest also got me stressed out with the language, because this crazy book kept me soooo confused about what the characters say. I did approve of Right vs. wrong, because what maybe right is wrong, and what maybe wrong is right.
First, Without my favorite character Huck, this story wouldn't have funny adventures. As Huck goes from place to place, there were many "scenes" in his travels that really put many laughs to my face. Huck was called the "Angel Of Death" by his drunk and retarded pa, and He also earned 40 dollars on his way to Cairo. Huck even dresses as a tiny girl to foll the lady who lived in the woods (bu t the old woman knew he was being fake... crap!!) One part from "The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn really got me freaked out when Tom Sawer says:
"Why, To saw Jim's leg off."
Huck: "Good land!, Why, there ain't no necessity for it! And what would you want to saw his leg off for anyway?"
"Well, some of the best authorities has done it..."
It's really amazing to see Huck i action. Huck's devious ways are so invincible and outrageous (He is just that good!)!!
Second, Huck befriending Jim brings up the language in the Novel. The Language is the most confusing and wackiest set of cracked words I have ever read (and HATE!!!!). Huck's friend Jim is a Negro. Most Negroes back in the 1800's were slaves, and didn't know how to read/write. Almost every Negro in the book speak the same way. For instance, Jim Says:
"Yo' ole father doan know yit what he's a gwyne to do. sometimes he spec he'll go way, en den a gin he spec he'll stay"
I'm sorry Jim, but I barely have any idea of what ya' said. It's very said though, because Jim doesn't have the right to learn, and speak like Huck can. I'm glad that Huck understands Jim, and became friends with him too. Even if Huck didn't trust Jim, he still got him out of many situations that most whites should never do for Negroes. But, does it really seem that Huck and Jim are "Best friends"?
Next, (MOST IMPORTANTLY!!!) Huck has to deal with his biggest fear-- RIGHT vs. WRONG. I was "afeard" this was going to happened. Sometimes, when Huck encounters a problem that has to deal with right and wrong, these words switch places in the story. That thing is whatever the reader sees what Huck does is right, it's actually wrong to Huck himself. "The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn starts off,
"All right, then, i'll go straight to hell"
'I shoved the whole thing out of my head and decided I would take wickedness again, which was in my line, being brung up to it, and the other warn't. ...I would go to work and steal Jim out of slavery again...'
For real though, I can't say whether what Huck does is right or wrong. Most times it's convincing. Mainly because most characters who are innocent, are the cruel and mean in the story all along. Is it true that in reality, what's right can be wrong and what's wrong can be right?
In conclusion, The adventures Of Huckleberry Finn really has a tale to tell. I enjoyed the humor of Huck's impossible ways. I do not adore the language of how the Negroes talked. But I did love th right vs. wrong challenges. Between a 1 and 10, I give this book a 9, because it brings the reality to the world.(less)
Does it feel hard to remember a friend you loss, and that special person was the only one who understands you and was very close...moreBridge to terabethia
Does it feel hard to remember a friend you loss, and that special person was the only one who understands you and was very close to you? In the story "Bridge to Terabethia", the climax is the most sad part of the narrative. Jess and leslie are the main characters of the story, but one them is going to meet the end of the line. What I like in the book is the climax, but the climax is the mostheart-broken step that I seen. I enjoyed the sclimax because jess loses his friend because leslie drowned in the river. He starts to go back to being lonely again because he doesn't have anyone much to talk to. Jess also needs someone to run the kingdom because without Leslie, who will run as queen of Terabithia?
One, Jess losed a very special friend that was near and dear to him. wheen leslie died, Jess didn't believe it at all. I lpart of the climax was the most upseting part of the story. It because leslie didn't desreve to die, and she was a very nic and wonderful best friend to Jess. For some reason, it was meant for leslie to die. Probably because the river was over flowing, and the rope broke loose. If things were different in the story, leslie wouldn't have die, and jess' sister woul still rule as princess. This is how I like this part of the climax because it shows a lot of emotion between loosing someone you care about.
Secondly, Jess starts to being lonely agin after leslie's death. In the book, I thought that jess was going back to act like his own self again. But, it didn't. his class mates started to respect him a little better, and people felt sorry for him because of leslie's loss. that surprised me because it shows that it'd very sad to lose someone you love, and i'ts hard tolive on and remember the person for all the he/she done for you. when I was 8, My aunt helen died of breast cancer. She was very nice to me and was there for me in maryland. I don't remeber much about her, but I felt very bad at the funeral service. One thing's for sure though is that she is still looking over me, and she will be with in my heart and my soul. this is why Ilike this part of climax because It shows that your lossed friend will always be with you.
In addition, jess needed someone to rule teribithia with him. With the loss of the queen, who will help jess take care of teribithia? jess 1st worked it out on his own in terabithia. It felt that jess needed som help , but he didn't..yet. I liked how he made a bridge for Terabithia. It's because it's an easier way to get acrosss the water, and was the best way to get through. jess did a lot to keep both leslie's and his dream alive. In the end, jess found a new friend to help him out, his sister. With her by his side, he will alwyas keep Teribithia always standing, snd will keep the imagination strong both for him and his friend leslie. This is how I like the last part of the climax because he starts to change, and becomes agreat leader and friend,
Ultimately, I really enjoyed the climax. Jess might if lossed His best friend leslie, but he will need to stay strong. Jess might feel lonely again, but he will find new people to be friends, and will always remeber leslie. He might not have leslie to help rule over terabithia but jess can still keep Terabitia on it's feet with a little help from his little sister as princess, building the bridge to Terabithia, and keeping the his friend's dream alive. I reallly enjoyed the book, because anything is possible if you put your mind and imagination to it.
