reading response

        Holden Claufield is failing high school and he could not care less. He is enrolled in a very nice school but that not really the truth. See every sunday either the parents call their kids or come up to see them and when they do they always ask "what did you eat last night" the children will say steak and this is true though the steak is hard and small.

      Holden is a nice kid who might sometimes get on your nerves and is not the brightest scholar out there. Half the hair on his head is turning gray and he smoke to many cigerates for them to not affect his health. Holden decides that since he is going to be kick out of this school in a couple of days he might as well leave. This book is a story of his life in the big city.

       When Holden decides to go to the city he makes sure he has enough money and he does his grandmother is always very generous with her christmas donations. He sets out to stay at a not so fancy and when he gets there he tries to buy a scotch and soda but they wont give it to him as he is under age, this is something that drive him crazy because he wants to be an adult but no matter what he still gets treated like a kid.

        His stay in Manhattan also changes him. One night he comes back to the hotel very late and is not tired but very bored. The bellhop notices this and tell him he can send up a girl for five bucks. Holden doesn't really want to but he says yes to the man. When the girl comes al he wants to do is talk so she leaves but not before getting five bucks. The bellhop and the girl tomorrow saying he owes them five dollars, Holden wont pay him so the bellhop knocks him out and the girl takes the money and they walk out.

       In conclusion Holden as dumb as this trip to the city was, he grows and matures from it. He learns a thing or to about certain kinds of people and who they can be, which is good so now he's not going to get husstled again or at least I hope he won't. He also learns that even though he is a kid he wouldn't really want to be an adult yet because a child's life is just to much fun.

The hardest thing in the world is writing
there are so many rules it is very hard
dyslexia is forever fighting
the words are scrambled like a spinning card.

Guess what, if you can't read then you can't write
writing's the most essential subject too
and to read the words is a blinding light
forever fighting a battle with you.

Although tis hard I love to read my books
they are full of magic and even lies
I first read in third grade and got some looks
although it was very hard I did try.

If I can then maybe I can write
if I can write then I have won the fight.

Authors note

  Maturity is some that your suposed  to get more of every year you get older. Maybe at seven your parents expected you to stop weting the bed and at ten to start doing chores and at the thirteen to begin to start planning for your future. But really isn't that far ahead into the future and why do i have to "be more mature" or anything like that i have all the time of my adulthood to "be mature" so why do they actspect a hormone crazed up kid to be more mature and no i dont have angst to those of you that question that I have no anxienty because if you go with the flow and try hard then thing will sometimes work  out but you just have to enjoy yourself and not take everything to seriously.

JANUARY reading challenge

Reading a book that is all poems is very different then reading a regular book. It is a different format and to understand the book you have to really understand the poems. This is what is making up the whole book. When I was reading Sold though it felt at times that I was reading a regular book. But Sold was very differeent then reading Impulse because in the book Impulse there are much more complex poems that deal with very complictated topics that to someone who could not  understand the poems would not understand the book at all and they would be just as lost as I was.


 I think that it is interesting that this character talks about needing new "gear" in such a serious way. The author pulls you in so that you have to read more and find about what will happen. By the way it is written this is almost like a short story and you are dying to know what will happen next to the man. He says that his crew is making fun of him and that he needs new gear, so this can mean that he may be getting peer pressure from his friends but really when it comes down to killing someone you are the one whos choses wether to do it or not.
