Patience and Perseverance
Patience in reading leads to worthwhile experiences. Jukes Verne’s novel, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, taught me the valuable lessons of patience and perseverance. Learning these skills helped me to overcome the author’s complex writing style and challenged me to read more deeply and analyze the themes of this compelling adventure story. Reading Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea challenged me to have patience during the book and to persevere through the obscure vocabulary and discover the themes present in the story. At first, I thought of the book as just another clump of paper meant to collect dust on our family’s bookshelf; however, with patience and perseverance in overcoming the challenges of the book, I was able to start enjoying the present writing in the book. The book themes flowed throughout my mind as I was sucked into the mirky black submarine setting. The beginning of the book was not the best or most captivating, but I persevered through the dreaded reading ahead. I was tasked with discovering new themes and analyzing the purpose of the themes. This was a difficult challenge, but so far it has also been a productive experience. With determination, I was able to get into a flow of reading after a couple a chapters and manage my time wisely. The theme of “Everything is not as it seems” is recurring throughout the book and relates back to the idea of patience and perseverance. At times in the book you will think you know what is happening, but after you persevere with patience you will understand and enjoy the book and have the most worthwhile experience reading. The book has taught you that you can persevere through a challenge; it has taught me patience; therefore, it’s taught me to enjoy the experiences ahead. Subsequently, this has led to worthwhile experiences. Patience within this book is vital, and in reading this book it has lead to worthwhile experiences.
