  • Worse Drugs And Other Things
    681 words
    I read the book, Go Ask Alice. The author was anonymous. The main character was a girl, and her name was not mentioned. It was written as a diary. I thought that this book was very interesting because it was true; it is based on an actual diary of a fifteen-year-old drug user. In the beginning, she has a break up with her boyfriend and is anorexic. She eats very little. She overcomes that obstacle though. The girl moves because her father gets a job at a university as a professor. She moves with...

Instead of introducing a setting or characters, she retells an incident that without further reading is for the most part incomprehensible. As readers we notice later on in the story the references made throughout the book that relate back to the introductory pages. Some of the main themes such as oral traditions, naming, and especially flight are introduced in the first six pages and are further d...

    Personality Dr. Ron Rossi May 7, 2001 The book I read was called, Man's Search for Meaning, by Viktor Frankl. Viktor Frankl was psychiatrist and philosopher who lived through the nazi era, one of the most dehumanizing periods of history, came face to face with conditions that most people couldn't deal with psychologically.
