Im going to give you my take on the book 46 pages by Scott Liell. This book was first copyrighted in 2003. This book is general consensuses of how Scoot Liell viewed Thomas Paine’s writing of Common Sense and the Turning point to Independence and how they effected the colony’s. He shows us the true meaning of Thomas Paines writings and how valuable they were even after nearly two and a half century’s. This novel is written in a third person person point of view we get a first row seat in the viewing of how Thomas Paines writing of the Common Sense. Liell goes into great detail to show us how substantial Common Sense really was, and how it shaped life into what it is today. Was it even an important aspect of life?
Unlike most historical commentary, this book does an outstanding job setting the stage. You get a real sense of what life was like then for the colonists. Lille sets the stage perfectly for us he puts us in the center if the action. We see the colonists as weak and poor individuals that are only acting in a natural fashion looking to their king for help. He did little for the colonists and expected much from them. They were living a life in his shadow helpless and grieving. They appealed to the king for some help and in return they would stop their rebellion and convert back to British ways. They wanted more liberty within the British system.
Thomas Paine wrote Common Sense in some of 1775 and some of 1776. He had only just moved to America been in the colonies for a few months before he produced most likely his best piece ever. I believe that Lille saw the writings as brief and to the point, somewhat blunt. In modern day most readers would more than likely shy away from the book because of the fashion it is written in. It is striking its words invigorating it empowered the colonists by giving them a voice. It was the kick start to the American Revolution.
