Gears of War
So i been reading Gears of War, and the book has really gotten to me. I think that it must have the longest chapters in the world because i noticed that each chapter is 16-20 pages long, but i still like it. It is really interesting reading about similar human life forms, but with different crisis. And i like to compare the book to old science fiction books. And i try to relate with my personal feelings to the books.
I think Gears of War: Aspos Field , by Karen Travius is amazingly well written because the setting has been given. It is similar to the star wars series. There is just no space fights.
A passage from pages 70-90 that seems important is: "He lobbed a few ration bars over the side towards a group of skinny threadeare kids watching from a street corner like a pack of little animals" I think this is descriptive because it has placed half of the setting and it showed that the character cared for the kids. And that it explains the emotional state of the book and character. As you are reading you can develope the tone for the book.
Another part that I like was: "There was no way of sneaking up to the opposing front entrance of Marcus Home, even without the security camera the gravel driveway crunch under Carlos's brand new army boots." This is an example of something important in this book. It shows that the book was reaching a more emotional state because the next paragraph, Marcus was talking about joining the coilition. And this builds up tention and suspense in the book.
This section of Gears of War: Aspos Field reminds me of tv show. In "M.A.S.H." was about Vietnam and because it was about war. It has every realation to the book. And also the difference is its a comedy/drama. Its not science fiction like my book.
What's probably going to happen next is we just exited a flashback so we should be getting back to the story.
I am looking forward to reading the rest of this book because I want to finish the book. And it has gotten really really interesting. The action has really been amazing. You should read this book.
