The First Story I Read

The story I was assigned to read was called, “A Sound of Thunder” by Ray Bradbury. The story is about a guided hunting service. The guide service has a time machine and will take you to any time to hunt any animal. Eckels, a hunter, wants to go shoot a T-Rex. So he goes back in time. There is a floating bridge in the past that they cannot leave, or else it could possibly mess up the future. The T-Rex he wants to shoot comes and things get dangerous. Eckels gets nervous and things start to fall apart.

I like how the author created suspense by using a lot of personification with the dinosaurs. I also like how he used author’s craft to make the hunt seem more real.
