Sonny's Blues By James Baldwin— Review

The story “Sonny's Blues” by James Baldwin is about two brothers from Harlem who see the world in completely different views, but at the same time do not stop loving each other and hoping that brotherly love is stronger than any problems.

The author presents in the story poverty, and the desire for people to escape, and how innocent children choose a bad fate. But Baldwin has hope for the best, at least for someone.

Three Portraits by Ivan Turgenev— Review

The story “Three Portraits” by classic Russian literature Ivan Turgenev describes the destinies of the people. The author describes the three portraits. The author brought the attention of readers to each portrait, trying to make clear what kind of life everyone has.

Events happen so quickly and unexpectedly that readers read the book in eager to know what would happen next. Readers will be shocked by the information they learn. They read and realize that they misses the mark in their judgment. And again- shock, shock.

We have here the inability to predict events, which in turn unfold in the most shocking way. This work is so emotional and rich in terms of different feelings that it is simply impossible to remain indifferent and calm.

“Mariana” by Fritz Leiber— Review

“Does it work? Don’t touch it!”. The main character of the story Mariana by Fritz Leiber didn’t follow this advice, she was just tired of the pine trees. She was also a little clumsy and timid. In this case, it turned out to be an absolutely terrible combination.

The story is about the reality of what it is, and whether we are all in the matrix.
