Mansfield Park
22nd November 2014 | Author: "Reviews"

Jane Austen's Mansfield Park makes for a popular topic for book reports, mainly because the author, herself, is so popular, and Mansfield Park is one of her lesser-known novels. The protagonist of Mansfield Park is Fanny Price, a young woman who has recently come to live with her wealthy aunt and uncle, Lady Bertram and Sir Thomas, at Mansfield Park. Lady Bertram is Fanny's maternal aunt. She is much wealthier than fanny's mother, who married beneath her. Fanny's father is a disabled sailor who drinks too much. Fanny is rather reserved in her new surroundings, being caught between several members of the family and not feeling as though she fits in. Lady Bertram and Sir Thomas' daughters, Maria and Julia, are cruel and shallow. There are two sons as well, Tom, who is a drunk, and Edmund, who is studying to be a clergyman and is the only member of the family that Fanny feels close to. . . . .

21st November 2014 | Author: "Reviews"

For a book review of Ray Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes, the student can start by introducing the two main characters. Jim Nightshade and Will Halloway are thirteen year old boys who are confronted by a stranger, a lightning-rod salesman, at the beginning of the book. The salesman tells them a storm is coming to town, and then gives a rod to Jim, instructing him to put it on the roof of his house. The boys then go to see Will's father, Charles, at the library where he works. Both the boys and Charles see a flyer later that day advertising a carnival coming to town. The show is called Cooger & Dark's Pandemonium Shadow Show. Though both boys are excited about the arrival of the carnival at such an odd time of year, Charles Halloway has a foreboding feeling about the event and wonders why a carnival would come to town at such a time. . . . .
