48 Laws of Power | Robert Greene

Non-fiction: Do you feel the author is believable? Does he/she write with any bias? Explain.

No, this book is mostly informative. It talks about tactics that previous historical figures used to gain power so there is no bias. I believe the author is believable because he brings in examples and evidence to back up his point.

48 Laws of Power | Robert Greene

Non-fiction: What is the tone of the text and how do you know?
April 28, 2021

The tone of the text is more authoritative, informative, and “older“ than anything. The author wrote the book so it would give the reader a feel for power. It teaches us the ways of how previous leaders have gained control and power. Although this book was made a while back so it makes sense into why it sounds “older.“

The Giver | Lois Lowry

I noticed that the author uses very descriptive and a lot of figurative language such as imagery. “Hot and windswept under a vast blue sky. There were rufts of sparse grass, a few bushes and rocks, and nearby he could see an area of thicker vegetation: broad, low trees outlined against the sky,“ the author uses this so the reader can visualize what is happening. She uses more imagery within the book and is able to use it effectively.

I wondered why did the original giver had all the memories and why don't other people have them but as I read more in depth I discovered that the government is trying to keep a utopia within the society and to do so they can't give the public their memories.
The Giver taught me a lot because his character is very wise and he taught me that having memories made by yourself are lonely and painful because memories are meant to be shared.

There is a huge lesson in this story and that is that there life is a world both balanced with good and bad, they live in a utopia but they are blinded by their governing forces and don‘t have any bad experiences.
The author is believable she is able to write well and it is easy to visualize the moment in the book. She writes with no bias but to show people that you must understand pain and suffering to understand joy and happiness.

When people learn about emotions and colours I can connect that to when I was younger and didn‘t know a lot about that. The connections help me learn the conflict because the people in the story want knowledge but they can‘t get it.
Some things that surprised me in my reading are how well the author can explain and make you visualize what colours look like. The writing would be compared to telling a blind person what colour looks like.
