  • Quotes At The Beginning Of The Chapter
    428 words
    Analysis Dune: The Butlerian Jihad is the fourth Dune novel I have read by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. One of the things I really liked about this book was the quotes at the binging of each chapter. "Religion, time and time again, brings down Empires, rotting them from within". This is one of said quotes. The reason why I enjoy these quotes is because not only do they always have something to do with the chapter they have meaning in our world as well as the dune world. I also enjoyed th...

  • Doctorow's Books
    453 words
    Ragtime is one of the most powerful books that I have ever read, and E.L. Doctorow is an author unlike any other. Just as the name suggests, the seemingly serene beginnings that are presented in each of the miniature books within the book are quickly unraveled by the onslaught of complicating situations and by the unpredictable reactions of each character. The plot, containing an abundance of twists and turns, and the author's style of writing, work together harmoniously making it nearly impossi...
