Story of a Robber Baron

For many books, the main character or protagonist is a very decent person who, while might have some flaws, is overall out there to do some good to society, their friendship, or something they hold dear to themselves. This is exemplified in such books as Collins' Hunger Games series, Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series, and Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. Other books have a protagonist who has a major flaw, which proves to be the cause of his or her downfall. Any tragedy you have read will most…See More

A Death in the Family: A Dated Book?

Warning: Spoilers ahead!!!When I first picked up this book, I wasn’t in a really good mood. So, it kind of fit, reading a book about, really, A Death in the Family, while I was brooding over some terrible events (which I would not relate in this blog post). However, at a second look at things, when I had recovered from my feelings, A Death in the Family, written by James Agee doesn’t look all that fitting for me anymore. As I progressed through the book, not only did it start to get a little…See More

Sledding can be dangerous!!! A Tragedy in Massachusetts

“Optima Dies Prima Fugit”- Virgil, a poet who lived in during Roman timesThe first time I read this book, it was pretty clear that something had gone wrong with the protagonist of this book, which is why the quote from Virgil, which means “The best days are the first to flee”, always seem to wander into my mind as I read Ethan Frome, written by American author Edith Wharton. Fitting, for such an end result.Note: In the upcoming hypothetical situation, if you are female, assume it is your…See More

Mark Guo commented on Brooke Mahoney's blog post Are Books Becoming a Thing of the Past?
"I have to agree with those who say that books will never disappear from our society, for two reasons: first, that books have more advantages than any of the other alternatives, and that other predictions have failed. A few weeks ago, a study…"

Mark Guo commented on Sarah Brand's blog post Accuracy Makes Greatness: Four Things to Look for in a Movie Based Off of a Book
"I would like to point out one other book: Eragon. Those of you who have read the series before and watched the move should know how different the books and the movie are. A little plot change like killing off the last of the Ra'zacs at the…"

Mark Guo commented on Joy Kim's blog post Weird Words With Interesting Definitions
"Well, this issue again. Like I said in previous blog posts, you have to consider regional differences. Perhaps the Midwest is the only place where people don't use that word, and we are ignorant about it because we spend most of our time in the…"

Mark Guo commented on Gary Anderson's blog post Hey, Kids! Your Twitter Is Showing!
"It isn't just Twitter, but also other social media sites sites like Facebook and now possibly Instagram. Not only does it matter for college, but it also matters for your future careers, whether for a high ranking job at a law firm or just a…"

Mark Guo commented on Yzzy Swearingen's blog post New "Words"
"If the people writing dictionaries in England back in the late 1500s and early 1600s had your attitude, Shakespeare's contributions to the English language will never be made. Languages change over time, and I think we are seeing another one of…"
