Through the whole book we get to understand and connect with Conor more each chapter. Closer to the end when Conor has to tell the Yew Tree the truth, his truth, he is scared to admit it because if he does then it becomes real. Not just a thought inside of his head. He doesn’t want to admit it because he is scared to lose his mother. But when him and his grandmother are sitting around Conor’s mothers hospital bed for the last time, he works up the strength to say:
” “I don’t want you to go” he said, tears dropping from his eyes, Slowly at first, then spilling like a river”
Once he admired the truth he could fully move on after his mothers death and live his life.
In my second blog post, I predicted that Conor would do anything for his mother no matter how hard it gets and I feel like I was pretty accurate with my predictions because by him admiting that she is dying and he does not what to lose her, he’s facing the most difficult challenge to help his mother. He resolves the main conflict between himself and not wanted to let his mother go. I feel like it was a good way to let the novel end because conor finds out the truth about what he feels inside and gets to properly understand everything and move on.
The book gives good examples of imagery by not only letting u have ur own idea of the situations through tour the book but it also gives you some pictures through tour the book to lean your mind a certain way. By the author doing this, it’s gives me a better feeling of Conor’s feelings and a better feel to how the overall tone of the book was bitter sweet and a little bit sad at moments and happy at others. By the author giving this tone I feel like he was trying to protray that no matter what happens throughout ur life as long as you face the truth and accept it, things with always get better with time.
I feel like the author’s ability to write is pretty amazing. He can write in 3rd person and make two characters have a convocation and you know who is speeding when and what time or what they are feeling when they say what they say. What I feel he doesn’t do that well would be keeping the reader to understand the book, meaning instead of Jumping from his house to school to the hospital, he should give a little more information in between the settings.
Overall I would highly recommend this book because it has really good meaning behind most teenagers when they go though tuff times, it helps you understand and help you deal with whatever u you maybe going thought, besides that it just keeps u wanted to keep reading it because you never know what may happen next. After reading the book, I would really want to watch the movie!!
