  • Inmate John Coffey
    802 words
    There are a number of reasons for choosing a book by the author selected Stephen King. I have read a number of other novels by this author and thoroughly enjoyed reading each one even though some are very long.

Another thing Stephen King does well is including enough description to paint a vivid picture in the readers mind without going too far. I received ...

  • Generation Of Kids

    Child's play Twelve by Nick McDonell Atlantic Books 9.99, pp 244 The title of Nick McDonell's first novel does not, in fact, refer to the author's age, though you could be forgiven for thinking so. When a book comes so pre-feted, it can be difficult to shut out the roar of the publicity - the author's extreme youth (he wrote it at 17), the endorsements from Richard Price and Hunter S Thompson splashed over the jacket, the comparisons with Brett Easton Ellis and Jay McInerney, the fawning of lite...

    The Intrusive Author in Milan Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being In an interview he gave after the reprinting of one of his later novels, Milan Kundera said, most eloquently, that "the stupidity of the world comes from having an answer for everything... the wisdom of the novel comes from having a question for everything" (qt d. in O'Brien 4).

    Louise Erdrich The earth was full of life and there were dandelions growing out the window, thick as thieves, already seeded, fat as big yellow plungers. She let my hand go. I got up. "I'll go out and dig a few dandelions", I told her. Outside, the sun was hot and heavy as a hand on my back. I felt it flow down my arms, out my fingers, arrowing through the ends of the fork into the earth. With every root I prized up there was a return, as if I was kin to its secret lesson.

    Diary of A Teenage Girl. Becoming Me Title Page: On the cover of Diary of a Teenage Girl, Becoming Me there is a girl with long silky brown hair. I get the impression that she is sad or lost because she is twirling her hair in between her fingers. Her head could possibly be tilted down in a depressed motion. I think her hands are the only thing visible because the author is trying to set of the mood of th young girl, and I think this is shown by the twirling of the hair between the fingers. Publ...
