1.How do I feel about this novel ? The way I feel about this novel is kind of mixed
because , I couldn't tell if Mr. King was trying to scare me like it was a horror story or if
he was trying to make this story more Science Fiction . The way I reacted , when he starts
to talk about the power of Charlie McGee and how she is starting to realize her strengths.
It freaked me out , because how could somebody have that much power. The way this
novel relates to me and others is , when McGee starts to become very controlling with to
much power . My friends do the same thing when they think their in charge. The feeling I
mostly experienced . Was sadness for McGee because she was blessed with a gift , that
many would not want , being able to set things on fire . The way I responded to knowing
that she had these powers at first was OK cool, but then I realized what kind of
destruction she can cause.
2.I think the novel means that some people are born with special things or bad
things. Such as a good thing being perfect and healthy, but a bad thing wood be in
McGee's case being able to burn things or light them on fire . I think the theme of the
novel is to try to scare you . I also think that Stephen King is telling an important message
by writing these kinds of books . The message is nothing is ever perfect . For example
McGee was a great student, daughter, pretty much good over all , but she had a little
secret . The author is saying that the world is unfair to different people with special
abilities like McGee because she is different.
3.I think the Author created the meaning of the novel by giving a regular eight year
old girl a special power. Through this I think Mr. King is trying to say that people of all
ages do have certain powers and privileges and when those privileges are taken away
people get angry and tend to do bad and cruel things.
4.The evaluation that I gave the novel would be a six, because it kept me reading,
but I could of just stopped any time. The novel was worth (nine dollars and seventy five
cents, just kidding) reading because it was interesting and scary at the same time. Judging
this book up to my standards which are interest, and enjoyment . The book was
interesting at some parts and enjoyable at some parts overall this was a little bit above
average book compared up to my standards. The most important thing to me as an
evaluator is to be able to read and comprehend the authors work. For instance when Mr.
King says this sentence it turned into a fine powder I knew then that McGee had burned
something very thourghouly.
5. I don't think the message of this novel is worthwhile, because the message is
more than less not real with a girl being able to create fire in her hand.

Lincoln’s Journey to EmancipationLincoln’s Journey to Emancipation He comes to us in the mists of legend as a kind of homespun Socrates, brimming with prarie wit and folk wisdom. There is a counterlegend of Lincoln, one shared ironically enough by many white Southerners and certain black Americans of our time. Neither of these views, of course, reveals much about the man who really lived--legend and political interpretations seldom do. As a man, Lincoln was complex, many-sided, and richly human. He was an intense, brooding pers

It is the belief of Steve Gould that these strange#3 It is the belief of Steve Gould that these strange and bizarre animals in the Burgess Shale could well undermine our conventional view of evolution. But his first argument, that the problematic fossils have such distinctive body plans that they must represent extinct phyla is misleading. If a fly and a mouse have body plans that are laid down by the same fundamental instructions, then it is perhaps less likely that the self-evident differences in anatomy stem from really radical differences i
Cryptography is the science of encoding a messageCryptography is the science of encoding a message into a form that is unreadable and making sure only the proper people are capable of decoding the message back into its original form. This is usually done by using an encryption algorithm and a decryption algorithm (these two are often the same) and very often a secret key. Some of the early cryptographic systems did not use a key but instead kept the algorithm itself secret. The message sender uses the encryption algorithm and the key to encode
Bacteria are microscopic singular celled organismsBacteria are microscopic singular celled organisms grouped in the prokaryote kingdom. They have a seemingly simple internal structure but that is not so the internal structure of a bacterium is quite complicated . Bacterial growth is generally studied in cell cultures by visible count estimation which shows an apparent growth curve. (Stephenson 50) The growth curve shows the stages of bacterial growth within a cell culture. (Thimann 623). Bacteria can survive in a number of different extreme e
