    Furthermore, in Rebecca, Mr. De Winter’s mansion sets a sort of lonely atmosphere. It is surrounded with woods with not much to do but hunt. Even Giles, Mr. De Winter’s brother in law comments on the lack of things to do, “There is nothing else to do around here” (Rebecca). Also, living out in the woods includes many dangers.

    wide variation in lower and upper registers for each member is what makes One Direction so successful. Simon Cowell was able to find five voices that each complimented each other uniquely to create complex harmonies that most bands can’t achieve. Because of this, the band has received 281 award nominations in its 5 years, and has won 169 of them.
