Read in February, 2010

sometimes we are pulled toward one or two characters in the story. we identify with them or feel sympathy for them. with which characters do youidentify in the book, and why do you beleive you identify with them
i american chilhood annie dillard, when she was young always imagine a monster which was creeping into her room periodically throuthougt the night, but later she discovered that it was just the headlights of a car coming trough her.
i really pay attention to that part because when i was young, i had the same experience. in africa there are many fantastic story. according to those story when i went to bed and saw some headlight, i just imagine that it was one of the monster i heard in a story

are you puzzled or confused about anything in the story? what is it that confuses you, and why do you find it confusing?
through information confused me'' her father forbidden her from going to pa place called frick park but her mother allowed her to go if she kept it a secret''
i just want to know why the mother allow her something while his father doesn't allow her that. their maybe a misunderstanding or something wrong in their family. moreover, in my opinion there are some problems of union.
