The Great Gatsby is a good book but personally I didn't care for it. This book represented symbolism in many different ways. Two of the most common ways of symbolism is "The Valley of Ashes" and the "Eyes of Dr. TJ Eckleburg."
The Great Gatsby is an okay book about many different things and different situations. It shows how things can’t ever be the way they seem. It starts off with a Yale graduate named Nick Caraway moving to a town called West Egg. He knows that he is going to have a lot of things there, some good and some bad, but he has no idea in what’s really in for him.
Nick was fortunate enough to be able to live to this millionaire named Jay Gatsby. Little does he know, he just moved in next to his new best friend. It takes a little bit of time but they finally meet at a party thrown by Jay Gatsby himself. Jay Gatsby throws a lot of parties. Many people think that he throws great parties. They can last up until 3 am in the morning.
All Gatsby wants is to see a woman, Nick’s cousin named Daisy. The only problem is that Daisy is now married. Even though she is married, she’s still in love with Jay. She doesn’t tell her husband, but she does. What Daisy doesn’t know is that her husband has another girl that he has on the side.
This book is a boring book and really self-centered and has a lot of symbolism. It is not a book I would read again.
There are many different iPods in this world. There is the iPod classic, iPod touch, iPod nano, iPod mDear Potential Reader,
The best iPod ever made……..
There are many different iPods in this world. There is the iPod classic, iPod touch, iPod nano, iPod mini, the iPod touch and many more. These iPods are built so you can listen to music. Also, they have different generations which give these iPods different features. Since there are features, there is one iPod that has features that is better than the rest, and that’s the fourth generation iPod touch.
The fourth generation is the best iPod ever made. One reason is because its memory. The iPod touch fourth generation has different types of gigabytes that it comes in. For instance, you can buy it with eight gigabytes. Eight gigabytes can hold up to one thousand six hundred thirty eight songs. Then the iPod goes to thirty-two gigabytes. A thirty-two gigabyte iPod touch can hold three thousand thirty songs. The last and highest amount of memory that this generation of iPod can go too is sixty-four gigabytes. Sixty-four gigabytes can hold up to seven thousand songs.
This iPod has more features than the others. For starters, they have installed cameras in them. That means that you can take pictures and videos. That also means that it can take pictures and record videos. Also it can hold full length movies. When you watch full length movies it uses more of your battery faster. For instance, if you just listened to music, you could have up to forty hours. If you are watching videos, movies, looking at pictures, playing with apps, or all of them, the battery will be good for up to seven hours at a time.
When it comes to buying a good iPod touch, the price of it matters. You don’t want to buy something that is very expensive when you can buy it for half the price. The fourth generation iPod touch can be bought at a mildly good price. You can buy an 8 gigabyte iPod touch for $229. You can buy a 32 gigabyte iPod touch for $299 and a 64 gigabyte iPod touch for $399.
These are just some of the many features when you buy an iPod. It’ll make things easier knowing exactly what you are looking for....more
The book The Outsiders is a very good but very active and kind of not appropriate book for all ages. ThThis is my book review:
Dear Potential Reader,
The book The Outsiders is a very good but very active and kind of not appropriate book for all ages. This book is about 2 gangs that live on the opposite sides of town but have a history with each other. The poor gang or the “Greasers" and the rich gang that lives in the rich part of the town are called "Socs." These 2 gangs have done damage to each other before but not like it was in this book. Ponyboy Curtis is the youngest person in the Greasers and has 2 brothers. Darrel Curtis is Ponyboy's oldest brother. Also he other brother named Sodapop Curtis, Ponyboy's happy-go-lucky handsome brother. Also in the Greasers gang is Two-Bit Mathews who is the joker in the gang. Steve Randle Sodapop's best friend since grade school and also works with Sodapop at the gas station. Dallas Winston is the toughest hood in Ponyboy’s group of Greasers. He is also known as Dally. Finally for the main characters is Johnny Cade. He is a 16 year old greaser. Even though he has not been successful in school he tries his best to approach intellectual matters with steady concentration. In the book The Outsiders I have 2 favorite quotes: My first favorite quote was directed to Ponyboy. Someone told Ponyboy “Stay gold, Ponyboy. Stay gold" This quote refers to the Robert Frost poem that Ponyboy recites to Johnny when the two hide out in the Windrixville Church in Chapter 9 when Johnny is lies dying in the hospital. My second favorite quote is "Dally was so real he scared me." This quote is during Ponyboy and Johnny in the abandoned church when they thinko of Dally. Kids that are bullied in their school and even kids who simply feel alienated can look at the story Ponyboy tells and realize that they are not alone in their unfortunate circumstances. In fact, with such dramatic displays of violence in The Outsiders, these kids may be able to put their experiences into an even better perspective. On the other hand, kids that are often bullying others are offered the chance to see life from the perspective of the bullied, and hopefully realize that they are not so different.
I also think that is story is a very good story to teach younger teens because i think that the violence and the actions of others in the story may portray a negative influence on the more negative students in your class. Also teachers it wills most greatly if you read this story with a mature group of kids. Some kids may act immature to the story and how they use foul language. I do recommend the book for people who have not read this book but this book is very good and can teach a very good lesson to good kids. ...more

Not one second did I ever think about putting this book down. Though I wouldn’t read it a second time, because I never read a book more than once. From start to end, the book just keeps dragging me into the world of Percy. I love Greek mythology personally, and reading this book taught me a lot about it. I was disappointed at the ending book it was a huge cliff hanger and at the time couldn’t afford the next book, but it was worth reading it. You should always experience the beginning of a tale, or you’ll never truly understand the rest. When Rick wrote "Go on with what your heart tells you, or you will lose all. That was really inspirational, and I think everyone should read this and really listen to what it means. In my opinion, I think it means don’t be afraid to do what you want, because in the end, you might lose something important to you. Another good one that Rick wrote was "Where's the glory in repeating what others have done?".
Some people like repeating what others have done for the attention, but I think you shouldn’t do good deeds for the attention of others. You should always do good things because you know it’s right, and probably shouldn’t ask anything for return, like attention or rewards. I recommend this book to anyone around the ages of 13, because Percy at the time, was 13 years old. You’ll see the decisions he make are similar to some of the things you’d do at that age. When I read this book I was 13, and it was very interesting cause I can almost put myself in the position of the main character. I love when stories get so vivid that I have the ability to do that. I would have loved to be a son of Greek God, Poseidon. I would recommend for teenagers to read this book along with the entire series of the books written by Rick Riordan. This series of books are really good and really excited to read! I would recommend any books in the series to people who are interested in Greek Gods so they would most likely like the book. Also if you love action and a book that waits till the end to tell you what you have been wondering to find the entire book....more
