1. The story that I felt meant the most to me was the story of when O'Brien tried to run to the Canadian border. The reason why I feel it has meaning is because he had to make a very difficult choice when running away and eventually had to be brave and say enough running and come back. An example from the book would be "all right then I submitted. I would go to the war- I would kill and maybe die-because I was embarrassed not to."
2.I think that I connect with Kiowa the best. I feel that I connect with him the best because we both have similar values in that life is a sacred thing and that we both strive to help others in times of need or despair. Kiowa is a very pious person like myself as well as having great respect for his fellow soldiers.
3. What I found interesting in my reading was that O'Brien does not use a lot of quotations rather he relys on a different style of writing to show conversation which I find unusual and need to find out why that could be.
4. a quote that struck me was when sanders took out a Yo-Yo and said " well, that's nam, garden of evil. Over here man every sin's real fresh and original." It impacted me because of how truthful this statement is in it's entirety.
