3,101 wordsThe Deep End of the Ocean was a universal story of traumatic loss and its effects on individuals and families.

Andre Brink's powerful novel, A Dry White Season, was made into a film directed by Euzhan Palcy about ten years after it was written.

Felicity And Other Characters
2,132 wordsOne of the greatest attributes attached to the melodramatic genre is that it holds a wide variety of styles, settings, and characters.

Remarkable Thing About Ben Following The Mouse
330 wordsResponse Journal # 1 - Chapter 1 -How does the author capture your interest at the beginning of the book? - There are a number of things mentioned in the beginning of "Incident at Hawk's Hill" that sparked my interest and that I could relate to. First off the main character, a small boy named Ben aged 6, was in a barn imitating a mouse as he slowly followed it in the hay stacks. There was no reason in him doing so; it was just out of pure pleasure. This introduction of Ben's character excited me...
1,113 wordsA Dry White Season When I first picked up this book, I didn't know what to expect. Having never read Andre Brink, nor any novel about South Africa, I wondered what the tone would be, whether it would be profound or just preachy.
