This story was very easy to read and made you not want to put the book down. I mostly enjoyed it for two reasons. First because Harriet the main character and the narrator. Another reason is because the book does not only talk about the same thing over and over. The story has many things happening at once. With Harriet which was m favorite character made it more of an exciting story to read.
Harriet was a single woman who lives in London with her friend sally who just had a baby and now is single mom, and Jacquo in her grand aunts house. Harriet is my favorite character because she one of the most caring and loving person i have read about. She helps her friend Sally raise her new born baby Tom and cares about both of them a lot. She is also caring and never should an act of selfishness because she fell in love with John and never showed her love for him until she was sure he wasn't with her old friend Nina who has done many bad things to her in the past.Nina had stolen one Harriet's old boyfriends in college but even though Harriet disliked Nina very much she never revenged Nina. Which is why i believe Harriet deserved to be with John in the end . He selfless personality made her deserved to know that man she loved never loved her enemy Nina, but actually tried to get rid of her on the fist date.
The stories told by Harriet were not only one. She had many things going in the story. Harriet through out the book had to help Jacquo's sister who is a teenager.She helped her get a job and a house and finally convinced her to go back home to her parents. Another story happening was her friend Sally and her son Tom. Sally was having a hard time because she was short on money and had to deal with Tom's dad Steve be married to another woman. This made ally never tell she had his son , until one day he comes back and wants to be part of Tom's life too. The other story,the main story, of A Promising Man is a funny and heart warming story is because of Harriet and John's romance. They both adore each other very much, but both act as if their just friends.
Over all, the story happening in the book were exciting and interesting. Harriet was very loving and caring. She helped her friends as much as possible. Her selfless attitude helped her be happy with John in the end of the story. Also the many happening in the book made me not wanted to put the book down. The confusing with Nina made the book ending very funny and what no reader expected to happen in the end. Also Sally and Jacquo's decision to be together was not called for because of the insults to each other. I reccomend the book for others to read if you want to have great laughs....more
Something borrowed was a great novel written by Emily Griffin. I have read this novel two times and I appreciate it a lot. The storyAndrina Da silva
Something borrowed was a great novel written by Emily Griffin. I have read this novel two times and I appreciate it a lot. The story being about adultery but is being told from a different point of view. Most stories are about the mistress being the bad guy and the poor girl being told as innocent. This novel twisted the whole story and should that you can love someone no matter what. it’s a type of book that keeps exciting and finding out new thing that doesn’t let you put it down. Like every book it has things that could have been better. For example ending was a tremendously change and through out the book you always truing to guess the ending but you never knew what would really happen. In the novel they had Rachel friend Hillary. Through out the book her and Ethan gave great advice to Rachel. This showed great friendship , unlike Darcy. Darcy was Rachel’s friends but not the bests, best friend you can have. Rachel and Darcy been friend since they were younger but Darcy was always better than Rachel. Always was prettier and had more boyfriends. But Darcy competition for being better than Rachel stoped true love. She knew Rachel loved Dex but still asked him to date her and dated him for 8 years. But after years when Darcy and Dex got engaged the same night Rachel revealed her love for him. After that night Rachel started a intense affair with Dex , she felt bad for cheating on her best friend but at the same time she didn’t because if darcy was in her place she would do the same thing. All rachel good friend Ethan and Hillary told her to just follow her heart and she did. In the end everything didn’t turn out bad and everyone ended up with who they wanted to. Feeling got hurt but not as bad as It seemed and as always Darcy was not the only bad guy but she was also the bad guy. And the story always keeps you happy....more
The novel The Giver that was writing by Louis Lowry is know in countries such as Canada United States and Australia. Its been criticized many times foThe novel The Giver that was writing by Louis Lowry is know in countries such as Canada United States and Australia. Its been criticized many times for the because of things it explains In the book. Many may interpret different the symbols and the message the book is trying to send. In the giver they live in a society with no love , color or pain, and when Jonas is shown all these different types of feelings his mind is completely changed. These different thing that may b though as bad or never seen as something important is a message showing that these thing should be more appreciated by people who have it. One of the first signs that Jonas was going to became the next receiver of message was that he could see color little by little. The first time he was known to see color was in Fionas hair. Every time he saw her hair he wanted to see more because he liked that feeling of seeing colors. This shows that we see color and it is was makes things different and makes humans like them more. When Jonas saw the different colors when the giver showed him he realized the things he saw on Fionas hair and he loved it. He also realized that it was unfair that everyone could only see black and white and couldn’t appreciate the colors. Another thing that is stopped in the in the community is feelings for other people. Even when people are getting married they don’t choose their own wives and husbands. The elder decide who they will marry by the similar personality traits. They never fall in love and when they start to get feelings or felling that get when puberty is reach they take a pill so they wont feel it no more. They also take pills so they don’t feel pain. This shows that they cant fall in love and they don’t have any other type of feeling either good or bad. They are considered neutral feelings but they are better to have bad so good ca be appreciated. Also they are not like other humans that can fall in love and have feeling for others . Another quality that the community doesn’t have that makes them different from humans is individuality. Including the fact that no one in the community except the receiver of message is able to feel love pain and see color, no one is different except jobs and gender. They don’t get to pick their jobs and they all start at the same age. They have to all dress the same and eat the same things. They also live in the same house and have the same amount kids and future all end up the same. The message in this is that human individuality is what makes every one unique and what makes each other interesting. In conclusion the book The Giver is a great story but the society they live in is not what I would like to live in. The fact that they don’t have pain is good but with no pain the good feelings wont be appreciated, but they also don’t get the best feelings. The also don’t get to make many choices themselves like jobs and who they want to marry. Their world is very limited and they don’t get to do things at their own times everything has to be done the same from as everyone else. ...more
