Amerika i found to be an outstanding book. From the way it start with the stoker and him coming from England send a powerful message of the harsh time most people are in. I really found this book interesting because it really relates to the time in history when America first start to somewhat develope. During this time very few discoveries had been made however, it is about to spark the industrial revolution. This book focuses on the main character Karl who is fresh off the boat from Europe sent away from family and anything else he had ever know. Its hard to think about all the freedoms we have as people now in America and how people would ship what would be a supposed trouble maker to America. Which now however we sometimes take for granted our great country which other come now for enjoyment and schooling. This book made me realize how different our struggles are from today instead of back then. Back then most people would struggle to eat and not that we dont have our poverty now but things are a lot easier for someone who came from another country especially to get food and put a roof over there heads. Also, its help me realize how different we are when it comes to suffering injustices. For example when Robinson is made almost a slave by Delmarche and his girlfriend. In our time now people wouldnt stand for that kind of treatment not only that but even for a kid to be raised by his parent as such is against the law. It surprising to see how far america has come from the past because through all the struggles we see Karl and others go through in this book. These are the same people in real time that would help shape many more protective laws. This making America today a much better place to live. The chapters of this book made me want to see something good happen at every turn for Karl. In one chapter he meets a girl in which he shares company sometimes when not at work. Ofcourse my mind straight away thought he has met his former girlfriend but before you know it they are seperated by lies and mistakes in which get him fired. It reminds me of that saying that whenever one take one step forward he gets knocked a few steps back. This to me just goes to show especially in America now that even though you get knocked back one must keep pushing forward in order to succeed.

Explains itself, The Metamorphosis was very clever but at some times got a bit boring, this book is very entertaining.
