It’s been a while since my last update post. In that time, I have finished Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and read 3 other books in a series by Curtis Jobling. I have concluded that I don’t want to make my literary analysis essay on Pillars of the Earth or Unbroken. I have talked with Ms. Wong about the books by Curtis Jobling, which I read for fun, and I now think that I want to focus my essay on the character development and character himself of P.K in the book,  The Power of One, by Bryce Courtenay.


The reason I want to do this book is that it is my favorite book. I love how Bruce Courtenay developed PK throughout the book; I found him to be one of the most interesting and inspiring characters I have ever met. I find the story of The Power of One fascinating because it follows a lowly British Boy in South Africa during the Second World War, who grows up and becomes a wonderful person who, through his own wit and innovation, can go to Oxford.
