Tom Sawyar Literary Reflection

Honestly, I planned to procrastinate and hold the reading off until last minute, but we started it in class and I could only finish it. I liked the characters in this chapter and I thought it was really hard literature to understand. I found it easy to find quotes because the author uses relatable themes for the reader to connect to like procrastination. The author made it extremely easy for me to connect to Tom Sawyer because we were so much alike with our sharing of personalities. Honestly, I learned that it isn’t easy to do anything, but when you receive help it turns out to be much easier. Also when you understand where the protagonist is coming from it make the story much, much easier to understand instead of when the protagonist is the polar opposite of you. Reading this made me believe that a single similarity is a connection
