  • Compare and Contrast Between Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars
    Compare and Contrast Between Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars: Both books have themes of growing up and death, more specifically, unexpected death at a young age, which I know is obvious, but I might as well say it. Another thing they have in common is smoking. But, the view on smoking in Looking for Alaska is much different from The Fault in Our Stars. In Looking for Alaska, smoking is viewed as "normal" and a way to "fit in". But in The Fault in Our Stars, it was discouraged...

  • out of the blue - 398 Words
    'Out of the Blue' is a dramatic monologue spoken by one of the people inside the twin towers on 9/11, from inside the burning building. The effect is of extreme close up on a tiny point in space in time, almost in a 1to1 narrative time. The event is narrated as it happens an appeal to a second person who could not be listening.
