    Cody Splunk Analysis

    • 1511 Words
    • 7 Pages

    Out of all three of the main characters, my least favorite would have to be Cody Splunk. I personally loved the overall melancholy feel of the book despite what the cover would have one to believe prior to reading it. The stories behind both Laura Freedman and Janice Gibbs flow seemingly concurrently and are almost poetic in nature. There are many similarities found between Gibbs and Freedman that are not found in Splunk. He’s the odd man out basically. But, of course, him being the odd man out and not matching the feel of what I find to be a somewhat depressing book is not the only reason why I find him hard to like or relate to. Cody Splunk is, as previously stated, the odd man out. He is optimistic in a world where things may never go…

I was always the odd man out, and I got used to that; further burying myself in books. I was good in school, so I kind of skated. I was smart and I knew it, and I leaned on that crutch. I did not have to work hard for anything in school. But if I had known then what I know now, I would have dug and dug and…

    different time periods. Although plays, dramas and screenplays are not in the literary works category, they are frequently known to be comprised of these similar literary elements as well. This appears to be the case in Robert Frost’s famous poem, “Mending Wall” and Neil Simon’s well known drama, The Odd Couple. While these two writings are categorized in different groups, they share the comparable theme of limitations. It is a person’s civilized responsibility to, at all times, know their…

    Hoof Print I have been around horses ever since I can remember because my mom loves horses. I took lessons every week to become a better rider with my horse, “Poe.” Carol, my new instructor (appositive), told me to try to not use stirrups when riding him. We started off walking around the ring without any stirrups, which was easy, so she told me to pick up a trot and move faster. I did that, but what happened was the stirrups ended up bumping Poe in the side, which made him think that I was…

    dark room with vines protruding in many places. It was quite straining to see, the only light being the faint lights of gold and purple from the crowns of the superiors. The man started to speak, in an unnatural echoing voice, “Human, you have done something great and terrible for our realm. You have done a great feat, opened the faery realm into a portal in which we can devote our revenge towards the nonmagical human race that has brought us many long years of grief. But you have brought upon…

    "Thanks for answering so throughly," the man said sarcastically. "I'm sorry..." Jonathan looked down, not sure what to say next. "Well, where's your folks?" "I don't know." The man sighed to himself. "It sure is odd to see young kids over here all on their own," the man said. "Who are you," Jonathon asked again. "Call me... Phil." Jonathon nodded, and Phil extended a hand. "It's nice to meet you," Phil said, and then they shook hands. "It's nice to meet you too," Jonathon muttered…
