I have decided to select the novel Freakonomics for yet another book review for a number of reasons. I believe this book can not only provide information just on the concept of economics, but can also provide insight in society's commonly misconstrued perspective of common sense. Based on multiple reviews I've read on this same novel, I am convinced that I will "pull more out" of this novel more so than countless other books I have read.
The most important thing I learned about in AP Lang last semester was definitely my ability to analyze nonfiction texts. I am now able to read a passage and pick out the author's tone, diction, rhetorical strategies, and his/her mood. I can also write about what I have analyzed efficiently and eloquently.
