Josh Wise PLEASE RESPOND!


Izzy I think the internal conflict connects with the external conflict. I believe that the internal conflict is wanting and longing to be somewhere free, and then the external conflict is just getting there. I think that the conflicts both tie together nicely in the end.


Josh Wise Yeah


Gian Piranio I think internal conflicts are key to the story. I think internal conflicts set up a lot of things in the book. These conflicts impact the book greatly.


Aaron Chu-Carroll Are spoilers ok?


Josh Wise Yeah. For example, at the beginning when they are asked if they want to get their memory back, they all go through an internal conflict. This is because they are not sure whether they should get their memory back or not. If they do get it, they want not like it, but if they don't get it, they may regret it because they don't know as much about the Flare


Josh Wise Another conflict is near the beginning. This is when Newt is told he has the Flare, and his friends don't. It is external and internal because it is a real problem with all the people, but it is also only really about him.


Josh Wise Spoiler are okay. I read it


Josh Wise For another part of the thing I said before, is that Newt goes through an internal conflict when he is told he has the flare because later he is not sure whether he should kill himself or not.


Aaron Chu-Carroll Ok, well then I think that internal conflict plays a huge role in the series, when Newt is first told he has the Flare, he laughs it off, without realizing how dangerous it really will get. Later, once the Flare has taken him over, he tells Thomas to kill him, as he realizes the catastrophic results of this disease

Cole M. The conflict in this book makes it so that i want to read it and then i dont want to read it. the conflict is too scattered and i feel like they could have done much more with it.


message 12: by Cole (new) - added it

Cole M. also near the end when newt got killed, the author did not make it clear that newt was too crazed to kill himself and needed someone to do it for him


Aaron Chu-Carroll The external conflict can be weak at times, but Thomas's internal conflict with Newt, and WICKED, and Teresa,were all great. With Newt, he had guided him and taught him everything he needs to know, so Thomas just watching his descent into madness, and even having to kill his friend, was very intriguing.

Josh Wise Lets talk about climaxes and resolutions


message 15: by Cole (new) - added it

Cole M. Yeah and that might be the climax of the story and the way that it was resolved was by him getting killed, I found that plot twist very intresting


message 16: by Josh (new) - rated it 5 stars

Josh Wise A climax would be near the middle when Thomas, and Newt... are trying to escape WICKED, and at first no guards are there, but then they all start coming, trying to kill them(Thomas does almost get killed), and then after a while, after being shot, they get away from WICKED in the helicopter.


message 17: by Josh (new) - rated it 5 stars

Josh Wise Yeah Cole, most of the climaxes lead to a resolution with the same characters


message 18: by Cole (new) - added it

Cole M. yeah


message 19: by Josh (new) - rated it 5 stars

Josh Wise In the book, when they are trying to escape, the climax starts. Everything starts to get crazy, but later when they do escape, it is resolved, only to make the book even crazier. Although near the end when Newt dies, it is the main resolution of the book, and that ties back with the conflict of him getting the Flare.


message 20: by Cole (new) - added it

Cole M. I dont think that that is completely true. that part of the book is only the very start, there is more to come and that is when the true climax starts.


message 21: by Josh (new) - rated it 5 stars

Josh Wise Yes and no. I think that in this book, there are many climaxes that resolve quickly, but then later there is ONE BIG climaxes, that resolves when Newt dies.


Aaron Chu-Carroll The rising action is pretty high when Teresa comes, but I think that the beginning of the climax, the escape is probably the highest point in the climax, I think that then the falling action began after Chuck's death, as the reader finds out about WICKED.


message 23: by Josh (new) - rated it 5 stars

Josh Wise Yes. Although, I think like the beginning is the climax, and it just keeps rising, and getting more intense.


Aaron Chu-Carroll fair enough, the course of those few days between him and Teresa was most of the book.


message 25: by Cole (new) - added it

Cole M. The climax is a structural part of a plot and is at times referred to as a crisis. It is a decisive moment or a turning point in a story line at which the rising action turns around into a falling action. so the beginning is techniquely not the climax, therefor you are wrong.

Josh Wise no

message 28: by Josh (new) - rated it 5 stars

Josh Wise what? somebody write something


Aaron Chu-Carroll Truth, the climax is definitely the escape plan, but the rising action begins with Teresa, and as the reader, this is when we notice that stuff... happens.


message 30: by Josh (new) - rated it 5 stars

Josh Wise I agree


message 31: by Cole (new) - added it

Cole M. I dont, and going back to my original comment, it is at the peak of the climax not then
