    Elie Wiesel's Night is a terrifying account of the Nazi death camp horrors that turned between 11 to 17 million people into agonized witnesses to the deaths of their families and friends. I chose this book to read because I had heard from numerous people that it was "the best book about the Holocaust I could ever read" . I read it and found out that it went into much more detail than some of the other Holocaust books I had read. This book was extremely powerful as it awakened me to the terror that many people went through during the Holocaust at the concentration camps. I found the book to be incredibly addicting and easy to read.…

    Theme is the message of a selection. Theme teaches you a lesson. Some themes include listening to your elders, learning from your mistakes, nothing is more important than family, and treat others the way you want to be treated. Authors write these stories for others to read and learn from the character’s experience. Every story may have a different theme, but it is expressed with different characters, setting, and plot. After reading “Under the Rice Moon,” a clear and thoughtful theme for this selection is, “sometimes it takes a long time for someone to understand you.” Throughout the selection, the cliff swallow, a type of bird, is waiting for someone to understand him. He travels from place to place in a cage hoping to be released and to…

    Through the study of the novel The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne, it is clear that the concerns and issues, as well as the style and structure of a text, are what determines the reader’s involvement. In addition, the issues of the past (particularly those about war) still remain concerns today. The issues amplified within The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas include detachment in family relationships which can lead to disastrous consequences, and the withholding of information from the youthful and innocent which can create dangerous situations. Along with these, is the main issue of the book: the persecution of the Jews, and man’s inhumanity to man.…

    The purpose of the theme of a story is to provide insight to the reader about the author's point-of-view on the topic they chose to write about. Theme can be communicated in two ways, both of which Ms. Kimenye utilized. One is to reveal the theme directly through a statement that a character makes, and the other is to allow the reader to interpret the theme based on the actions and reactions of the characters.

She used the right symbols, such as people, in the proper way to help the reader understand the purpose and meaning of the symbol. Overall, the way she incorporated the theme into the story could be considered to range from good to excellent.…
