3.0
The novel is a first-person narrative from the perspective of the title character. The novel's setting is somewhere in the north of England, during the reign of George III (1760–1820), and goes through five distinct stages: Jane's childhood at Gateshead Hall, where she is emotionally and physically abused by her aunt and cousins; her education at Lowood School, where she acquires friends and role models but suffers privations and oppression; her time as governess at Thornfield Hall, where she falls in love with her Byronic employer, Edward Rochester; her time with the Rivers family, during which her earnest but cold clergyman cousin, St. John Rivers, proposes to her; and her reunion with, and marriage to, her beloved Rochester. During these sections the novel provides perspectives on a number of important social issues and ideas, many of which are critical of the status quo. Literary critic Jerome Beaty opines that the close first person perspective leaves the reader "too uncritically accepting of her worldview", and often leads reading and conversation about the novel towards supporting Jane, regardless of how irregular her ideas or perspectives are.

Rushing home one day, Professor Otto Lidenbrock puts himself to work trying to decipher the meaning of an ancient Icelandic text. After some time on an Otto-imposed hunger strike, Otto's nephew Axel finds the translation. This ancient document claims that it is possible to reach the center of the earth! Immediately Otto and Axel leave for Iceland, find a guide named Hans, and set out for the volcanic crater that is to be the entrance to the depths of the planet. Despite bad weather obstructing their progress, the trio finally manages to enter the crater. After rapelling down, the group starts to encounter all of the terrors and wonders that Verne himself expects a group to find based off (for Verne) recent scientific discoveries. There are rooms full of natural gas, underwater rivers, and vast caves that allow for people to communicate despite being separated by great distances. As the book reaches its climax, the three men find dinosaurs doing battle, as well as evidence of subterranean prehistoric human-like creatures...

David Copperfield is a fictional biography, describing the title character’s life. David narrates the novel himself. Some of the information in the novel is autobiographical and relates to Charles Dickens’s own life. David had a difficult life from the beginning. His father died before he was born. When David’s mother remarries, his stepfather is abusive and sends him off to a boarding school overseen by a cruel and abusive headmaster. One positive outcome of the school is that David makes two close friends. David’s mother dies when he is twelve, and his stepfather sends him off to live with the Micawber family in London and work in his stepfather’s warehouse. David is unhappy working at the warehouse and runs away to his Aunt Betsy. His aunt sends him to live with the Wickfield family and attend a school in Canterbury. Although he loves Agnes Wickfield, David ends up falling in love with Dora Spenlow, the daughter of an attorney who tutors David. The Wickfields’ law clerk, Uriah Heep, is revealed by David’s friends to be stealing from Mr. Wickfield. The Micawbers end up moving to Australia, while David becomes a writer. When Dora dies, David marries Agnes Wickfield.

"Lets play ‘Hide and Seek..." said the creepy little girl “But we are four.” barely mumbled a timid boy. “That number is considered an unlucky number in Chinese because it is nearly homophonous to the word 'death'. ” That’s how it all started. That’s how our nightmare began.

"The Nightingale" is a literary fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen about an emperor who prefers the tinkling of a bejeweled mechanical bird to the song of a real nightingale. When the Emperor is near death, the nightingale's song restores his health. Well received upon its publication in Copenhagen in 1843 in New Fairy Tales, the tale is believed to have been inspired by the author's unrequited love for opera singer Jenny Lind, the "Swedish nightingale". The story has been adapted to opera, ballet, musical play, television drama and animated film.
