The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay
The stress of the end of the semester is very difficult to overcome! Procrastination is getting the best of me and I wish I would have done some things differently. This is definitely a learning experience to really manage my own time better. I am almost finished with reading the novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and has turned out to be a really good book! At first it was really slow, and it jumped around a lot, but once Kavalier got to New York everything started to make more sense and flow better. The last essay we have to write has got me really thinking how I can compare myself to the novel and the characters in the story. Kavalier is an all around go-getter. He really just wants what is best for himself and his family, and is willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen. He is also very talented and imaginative. The novel also gives you an insight of how people lived in the 1930's and 1940's. It is surprisingly different than present day. I am excited to finish out this school year as strong as I can in all of my classes!
