The Mexican Revolution

Character introduction:

Luis was a 16 years old boy when he joined the army. At the age of sixteen, Luis met the love of his life.  When he thought this would be the girl who he spends his life with, but the heartless war ripped them apart. He had to leave for the revolution.

Was this revolution a success:

In my opinion, this revolution was a very successful revolution. It helps Mexican citizens gained lands and liberty.  At first, most of the citizens that were not rich has been treated unfairly. After Carranza and Obregón’s rule, this country has truly accomplished the people’s dream, where land and liberty belonged to the people of Mexico. For example, in the new constitution a program called Ejido was made, it made sure land will belong to the peasants who worked in it. There also was no more unfairness in electing presidents, from Diaz’s unfair reelections, Obregón followed his term and stepped down after it ended. In conclusion, this revolution was a success because it accomplished what the people was wishing for, land and liberty.

 

The World Without Fish

The World Without Fish is a non-fiction book written by Mark Kurlansky. This book presents a different perspective on the cruel treatment of fish by humans and what happens if they continue to do so. A series of fish-catching activities that people participate in have a profound impact on the entire marine food chain and the marine environment. This book also makes full use of a variety of ways to present the author’s point of view. Whether it’s from real cases, science, or comics, readers can finally realize the seriousness of such things. I recommend this book to individual groups of people, maybe people who live by the sea or work as fishermen, to get to know the real situation and try to change it

When I first read this book, I wrote down what I initially thought were the Central Idea, Themes, and Issues. Most of the predictions didn’t change in subsequent readings. This book basically tells a Central Idea from a variety of different perspectives, which is what to do if there are no fish in the world.

Then I came up with one of the most basic topics to discuss. The author uses many examples to show us the importance and relevance of this matter. Basically everything in this book is related. Whether it is industry, fishermen to ordinary human beings will be connected.

Then, I followed up with another idea and expressed from a different perspective what too much commercialization can do to fish. Here I choose to use the economic aspect to tell others how much damage to the economy would be done if commercialization caused the extinction of fish. Then I also told others from an environmental perspective and considering the future of mankind, the over-commercialization of fish is really doing a huge amount of harm to the future of many industries.

Booktalk

The book I read is called”The Gospel According to Larry”. This book is talking about the main character Josh hide his identity to a fake guy called Larry online. But about this identity was always a question. The theme of this book is no matter how you hide something, the truth will always be found out. Maybe you will get in danger or lost an important thing in your life.
