Ishmael opened my eyes to the idea of cultural captivity. Cultural captivity is the culture that tells me that I must think that I am above all creatures and Nature, so I can do anything I want to the latter. Ishmael tells the first lesson of captivity: “You’re captives of a civilizational system that more or less compels you to go on destroying the world in order to live” (Quinn 14).

The story reminds me that I am nothing without nature. Ishmael snapped me out of my superior thinking and helped me accept that the hope of humanity’s survival is in knowing how to live with Nature.
Funny and morbid, and I love it. This is how I describe George Saunders’ “Adams.” I like “Adams” because of the love that Roger feels for his family, as he protects them from the possibly pedophile, Frank Adams.

The way he repeatedly wonks Frank makes me think he is just hitting him with a pillow to scare him away. At first, I did not understand yet why Roger is mad at Frank, until I realized that he is a neighbor who has underwear only facing

She learns that disconnecting from the experience gives her the control, her power drawn from his continuing need. The first indication that she has learned about her own sense of control in the situation is when she states “her mind, clear and detached and ironic anyway, was regarding him from a distance, with amusement, but with pity” (Perkins and Perkins 2539).
Everyone instantly knows what the verb means. Authors David Vise and Mark Malseed tell the rags to riches story of the most meteoric rise of any company in business history. The Google Story is a fascinating ride behind the scenes and into the economic, technical, social, and legal battlefields that the war for a better search engine was fought on.
The story begins as Josephine, Mrs. Mallard's sister, together with Richard, Mr. Mallard's friend, went to the couple's abode to deliver a staggering news.

Religious beliefs are sensitive subjects to discuss. The interference of religion in any area, be it politics or medicine, often invites serious differences. A Catholic nurse may be angrily rebuked by a Bishop for allowing surgery
What did I like about this story? The fact that the snake came back to life at the end. Perhaps the snake was not dead after all but rather one of those species known as the sleeping snake. But beyond the superficial
