The Power of Words

I think this goes with Liesel stealing books because she undertands truely the power of words. I think words can be insanely powerful as long as you know how to use them right. Just like from the story Adolf Hitler slowly started giving people ideas and changing their minds about stuff using words and those words turned into forests. I think what gives words their power is the people using them and the people that are being told them. I think Max is giving is giving Liesl a lesson so she dosen’t fall for all the words that she is being told.

Quote: ” Best of all he realized, they weren’t comparing him as he was now with how he had been when he was the maktig. That was before their memory. They were comparing him with the way he had been when he was a shambling, forlorn drunkard, and the admiration in their eyes when they looked at him now was obvious. ”

Quote: “” He did lose a spar in that final race,” Svengal protested. Gort shook his head.”And he recovered from it. He handled the problem brilliantly by improvising. Any can make a mistake, Svengal. It’s how they learn from it and recover from it that shows their true worth.””

Quote: ” Gort Looked at him.”What is it about Thorn? He asked”He’s just a broken down old drunk, isn’t he?”

But I giant storm came in so they had to seek shelter on an island. And right now Thorn is training them. And the objarl is trying to figure out where the heron brotherband crew is right now.

This Makes Me Think: I choose this passage because it shows that when someone slips up almost everyone forgets their accomplishments and just remembered all of the bad things they did no matter how great or amazing the thing’s they did before were. I liked it because it showed that some people still remember Thorn before all the bad stuff happened.

Context: The Herons had to Leave Halshom because a pirate named Zavac stole Hallshoms prized possession while they were supposed to be watching it. So they left after Zavac and his pirate crew . But I giant storm came in so they had to seek shelter on an island. And right now Thorn is training them.

This Makes Me Think: I choose this passage because It made me wonder about if this is how bad the weather is in Hallshom it must be way worse when the Heron brotherband crew were at see or when they’re at shelter bay. I felt bad for the Heron brotherband crew because they had to go threw these sucky condiions.

I felt happy because the author finally showed this part again of Thorn in the book. It really showed me that it seems like Thorn actually really care about the Heron brotherband crew. I liked it because even though Thorn is hard on the Heron brotherband crew he actually cares about them.
