Everything you see is not always everything. Fire on the background represents the shown part and the hidden part. Bright color flame is the shown part. People can easily see the Bright flame. However, the dark flame is the hidden part where it is hard to see. People only see the shown part and tell what they think and figured out. However, in many other situations, only by looking at the shown part would not able to make you solve the problem. Mostly the dark part tells the truth but people do not want to find the dark side because it is hard to find.

In Scat written by Carl Hiaasen, there was a terrible accident. There was a fire made by someone when students were having a field trip. The fire went off thankfully however; one of the teacher was missing. Police interview every single students and found nothing. Student nicknamed Smoke was the most suspected criminal. He had many accident related with fire. Everyone suspected Smoke. Theme of this book is that everything you see is not always everything. Students gathered the information they have seen and guessed who made the fire. However, Smoke had nothing to do with the accident. Two students went deeper with the fire incident and found the dark part of the issue. Those two found out that it wasn’t Smoke who made the fire. It was the people who wanted the panther. At the end people who made the fire were arrested.

Escape from the equalism

February 3rd, 2015

Running away from the equality in The Giver written by Lois Lowry has the resolution with Jonas, the Receiver,  with all the memory he has running away with Gabriel. They both have a conflict with society. Jonas by running away from the society is safe from the society and he is satisfied with what he has done. At the beginning Jonas thought he was living in a perfect house in a perfect world and friends with perfect friends. But after receiving the memory of past Jonas felt he was alive but not living. Jonas and The Giver’s plan is to get away from society as far as Jonas can. However, when Jonas reach the point where he is too far away the memory he is holding will go back to where it belongs. “That night, Jonas was forced to flee. He left the dwelling shortly after the sky became dark and the community sill…and he had taken Gabriel, too.” (Lowry 163,166). Nobody outside Jonas sneak into the babysitting center and brings Gabriel with him. The Giver stays and whenever the memory comes back from Jonas he will help the people from panic and will go to where his daughter is. Jonas knew where his daughter is. Heaven probably. Jonas leaving the Giver he and Gabriel reach the new world where he could be normal but has a talent. As he gets near he could hear the people singing. But perhaps it is only an echo.

I personally like how Lois Lowry finishes the book by giving us the curiosity whether Jonas and Gabriel find the new world or whether it was an imagination that Jonas makes. I also wonder what happened to the Giver. The last word he gives it to Jonas before he leaves the city is that Giver is going to see his daughter. In the other word he is going to release himself. “’But I have another place to go. When my work here is finished, I want to be with my daughter.”’ (162). Giver’s daughter named Rosemary was once the Receiver. Giver gave Rosemary only the memories of happiness. However, Rosemary was the Receiver and had to hold the painful memory the Giver gave Rosemary the war memory. Next day the Giver found out that Rosemary had released herself.

poem for f451 poem for f451

This found poem in Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury represents the scene when Montag crosses the river and throws his darkness, which makes Montag afraid.  However, after meeting Granger and the other forbidden people he starts to have hope, shown by the words in the poem trust, glow, starlight, light and luminous. The poem has many words with a positive connotation, which represents Montag’s feelings and the fact he still has hope. “… floating in a sudden peacefulness, away from the city and the lights and the chase, away from everything.” (Bradbury 142). This represents the idea that Montag is feeling safe, peaceful and mostly hopeful.

This quote shows that OKAY? And OKAY. Act as a code between them. OKAY? And OKAY. Always made them happy. Even though they are in a depressing mood okay and okay lead them to happiness. book cover for tfios
