Looking Backward
29th September 2016 | Author: "Reviews"

A book review of Edward Bellamy's Looking Backward could provide a comparative summary of the narrator, Julian West's, experiences of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The beginning of the book introduces the reader to Julian West, a man born in the nineteenth century to an aristocratic family in Boston, Massachusetts. He is engaged to a beautiful Boston aristocrat, Edith Bartlett. The couple is having a home built and plan to be married as soon as construction is completed. The wedding has already been put off a year due to the frequent strikes in the trade business. The behavior of the working class upsets Julian, who believes himself to be above them. . . . .

The Diary of Anne Frank
28th September 2016 | Author: "Reviews"

Because The Diary of Anne Frank is actually the personal diary of the young Anne Frank while she was in hiding during the Holocaust, it's important that a book report analyze the work as a personal diary and not as a novel. The summary of the report should take into consideration the seriousness of the events that surround the timing of the diary, particularly World War II and the Holocaust. These events can provide context for the summaries of the plot or thematic content contained within The Diary of Anne Frank. . . . .

I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings
27th September 2016 | Author: "Reviews"

Maya Angelou's I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings makes for a popular book report and appears on many reading lists, though it covers some very adult topics such as sexuality and Angelou's rape as a child. Covering her childhood through teenage years, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings is Maya Angelou's most popular autobiography (she has four others). It is written in the first person, as most traditional autobiographies, and provides a summary of Angelou's life in chronological order during the years covered. . . . .

Heart of Darkness
26th September 2016 | Author: "Reviews"

Students working on a book review of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness can provide a summary of the book in the three major settings: Central Station, Inner Station and the Thames River. The main character in Heart of Darkness is Marlow, a young man who sees his opportunity to travel to Africa when the captain of a boat for the Company, an ivory trading business working in the Congo, dies. Marlow takes the sailor's place and soon finds himself on the Congo River. Traveling down the river, Marlow notices how poorly the natives are treated by the Company and how they are exploited. The white settlements strike him as tiny islands among the vast, majestic jungles of Africa. . . . .

Nisa: the Life and Words of a !Kung Woman
26th September 2016 | Author: "Reviews"

Marjorie Shostak's Nisa: the Life and Words of a !Kung Woman can make for a unique book report. The book is made up of the summaries of interviews between Shostak, an anthropologist, and Nisa, a !Kung woman. The !Kung are hunter-gatherers and members of a race called Khoisan. Distinct from black Africans, the Khoisan are fair-skinned and short-statured. . . . .
