What exactly the novel was about underneath was something I struggled with, but I believe that what Fitzgerald really wanted to make quite clear was that there is no "American Dream," the American Dream is a farce, and totally unattainable. In order to f...

The odd one is often confused as the strange one and never considered the right one. For this matter, I enjoyed reading the works of Ray Bradbury in "The Pedestrian." Leonard Mead, whom was the main character and protagonist in this story, was considered by many as being antisocial. Yet the ironic view of the story showed that he was the only social being in the world of Bradbury's literature. ...
