Book Report: I Am David
Setting: This story takes place at a concentration camp in
an unmarked part of Europe.
Plot: The old man said to David "you must get away tonight."
David did not like the old man but for some reasons trusted him.
When the guards changed their shifts David made his move. When
David got out of the concentration camp, he ran with as fast as he
good so nobody would catch him. Before he had left the old man
told him he must go to Denmark. Fleeing for the sweetness of
freedom, David must undergo many obstacles such as crossing the sea
and walking over mountains. His biggest difficulty was in
switzerland. He was so close to his destination when he saw some
soldiers looking for him. He had other problems before but not so
great. How would he get out of this one?
Conflict: Weakened by hard labour, cruel slavery and malnutrition,
David has become very skinny. Every night and everyday David hears
the cries of the other prisoners causing him to stay awake during
the long nights which leaves him with bags under eye's. David does
not smile a lot because all he sees in the camp is his friends,
family and other prisoners getting beaten.
Character: In the camp David did not have anyone to teach him
anything until he met Johannes. Johannes taught David different
languages and also to help one another, especially in the camp.
After Johannes was shot David became very much like Johannes.
David became caring, kind and smarter with the languages he had
learned. Any chance David had to do something good he would, for
ex. the time David risked his life to save the girl in the
burning cabin. (I hope I did not give away to much of the book)
One reason I liked the book was because the author gave the
character, David, a positive attitude. David did not have much to
live for (until later on in the book) but still had a desire to
live. Secondly I like the way the author did not make it a happy
ending. I also liked that be reading this book, you did not only
read a fantastic story, but history at the same time. My fourth
reason for liking the book relates to my third reasons, the reason
is you realize since this world was created people try to run
others lives. In David's case that was the soldiers and the
farmer. One thing I did not like about the book was that the
author made the ending go by so quickly, I thought he should of
extended it and add more details.
Likes and Dislikes of The Character:
What I liked about David, the character in the book was
the way he thought of everyone before himself. Secondly I like the
way, even through tough times, he tried to learn something new,
like another language.

The Great InflationThe Great Inflation In late-1922 the German government were forced to ask the Allies for a moratorium on reparations payments; this was refused, and she then defaulted on shipments of both coal and timber to France. By January of the following year, French and Belgian troops had entered and occupied the Ruhr. The German people, perhaps for the first time since 1914, united behind their government, and passive resistance to the occupying troops was ordered. A government-funded strike began as tho
Depression of the 1930sDepression of the 1930s The economic depression that beset the United States and other countries in the 1930s was unique in its magnitude and its consequences.

C. S. LewisC. S. Lewis C. S. Lewis, a well-known author and apologist, is best known by people of all ages for his seven volume series entitled The Chronicles of Narnia. As Lewis wrote about the land of Narnia, an imaginary world visited by children of this world, he had two obvious purposes: to entertain the readers and to suggest analogies of the Christian faith. Although some feel that his stories are violent, Lewis is successful at using fiction to open peoplesí hearts to accepting Christ as their Savi

Analysis of Children's Fairy TalesAnalysis of Children\'s Fairy Tales Week 1-Fairy Tales I was fascinated by reading fairy tales, especially the ones by the Brothers Grimm. By analyzing them according to the protagonists, settings , themes, and occurrences I have noticed many similarities in the fairy tales. I found the protagonists of all the stories to be mystical and mysterious. Many of the protagonists tended to be characters such as Kings and Queens and other authority figures. Perhaps this was so the children could look up

Last of the Mohicans: Differents Between the BookLast of the Mohicans: Differents Between the Book and Movie The book Last of the Mohicans by James Fenimore Cooper was very different from the movie Last of the Mohicans in terms of the storyline. However, I feel that the producer and director of this movie did a good job of preserving Cooper\'s original vision of the classic American man surviving in the wilderness, while possibly presenting it better than the book originally did and in a more believable fashion to a late twentieth century read

Crying of Lot 49Crying of Lot 49 The philosophy behind all Pynchon novels lies in the synthesis of philosophers and modern physicists. Ludwig Wittgenstein viewed the world as a totality of facts, not of things.1 This idea can be combined with a physicist\'s view of the world as a closed system that tends towards chaos. Pynchon asserts that the measure of the world is its entropy.2 He extends this metaphor to his fictional world. He envelops the reader, through various means, within the system of The Crying of

The beginning of the electronic communication revolution that started with the public use of telephones to the emergence of home computers has been accompanied by corresponding social problems involving the activities of so-called computer hackers, or better referred to as the computer underground (CU).

A Look at Public Key EncryptionA Look at Public Key Encryption Encryption is the process of disguising information by transforming plain text into gibberish, or ciphertext, which cannot be understood by an unauthorized person. Decryption is the process of transforming ciphertext back into plaintext that can be read by anyone. Example of encryption can be found in history, for example in the era of the Cold War, the Solviet Union and the United States would send electronic messages to one military point to another, encrypted.

ConformityConformity Feelings of disgust fill me when I observe the identity of an individual being crushed by the widespread need to fit in with society and be like everyone else. Differences in character, appearance and emotion are created by unique pasts, and form the foundation for personal beliefs. When these differences are erased by society\'s attempt to create anologous creatures, individualism --a value that I hold in high esteem-- is lost. I aquired these values from my personal intuition and fr
A Lesson From OliverA Lesson From Oliver by David Jorgensen Like any other morning I was up at four, the day Oliver met with his violent death. At four in the morning the grass is wet. Now, it\'s still wet at 6 a.m. and even at seven, and these tend to be the hours of choice for most people wishing to appreciate the phenomenon of grass wetness. But it\'s a tragedy of economics that, when work starts at 5 a.m., one is not afforded the same time-options for grass appreciation as members of the sane world. Nor was thi
Spy Games - Creative EssaySpy Games - Creative Essay Being an international spy is no walk in the park. Death can be waiting for you around the corner or around the world.

UnionsUnions Why Unions? Unions are groups of working people who join to talk to employers about wages and conditions of work instead of workers talking to employers on an individual basis.1 Because they speak for everybody, unions can get a better deal for each worker than one employee could by negotiating with the employer. As seen in the short movie WHY UNIONS?, non-unionized workers talks about the unfair treatment they experience in the work place. Through collective action, workers formed un
Free Trade Agreement and Its Affect on Canadian BuFree Trade Agreement and Its Affect on Canadian Business With the coming of the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) there have been very serious implications for Canadian business and for that matter, Canada as a whole.

Ancient RomeAncient Rome Roman games were much like Greek games, but there was more physical contact sports such as Gladiator combats, man against beast, and water battles. Chariot races were the same as the Greek chariot races. Rome had many different types of chariots. Biage were chariots pulled by two horses, and quadrigae chariots were pulled by four horses. Each race had 12 chariots going on one track at once. The racers would take 7 laps around the arena which would be a total of 5 miles long. Teams o
ARAB-ISRAELI WARSARAB-ISRAELI WARS Since the United Nations partition of PALESTINE in 1947 and the establishment of the modern state of ISRAEL in 1948, there have been four major Arab-Israeli wars (1947-49, 1956, 1967, and 1973) and numerous intermittent battles. Although Egypt and Israel signed a peace treaty in 1979, hostility between Israel and the rest of its Arab neighbors, complicated by the demands of Palestinian Arabs, continued into the 1980s.

Convicting Raskolnikov Dostoevsky's views on Crimi Convicting Raskolnikov Dostoevsky\'s views on Criminal Justice At the close of Crime and Punishment, Raskolinkov is convicted of Murder and sentenced to seven years in Siberian prison. Yet even before the character was conceived, Fyodor Dostoevsky had already convicted Raskolinkov in his mind (Frank, Dostoevsky 101). Crime and Punishment is the final chapter in Dostoevsky\'s journey toward understanding the forces that drive man to sin, suffering, and grace. Using ideas developed in Notes from
