Outside reading week 3, part A

  • encroaching(pg 62): To take another's possessions or rights gradually or stealthily
  • murmuring(pg60): A low, indistinct, continuous sound
Figurative speech
  • "Like the beanstalk in the Fairy tale that led jack to the giant, the ivy seemed to know precisely where it was going." Simaly because it uses like.
  • "David saw its fingers extend into the air, as if Georgie were hanging before it like an apple ready to be plucked from the tree." Simaly because it compares two things using like.
  • "It had been a long tense summer." Personification because summer cant really be tense.
  • "The choice had been made for him. David could not hesitate. He forced himself through the gap in the wall and into the darkness just as the world that he left behind became an inferno." I thought this quote was significant because it describes why he went through the gap in the wall.
