What this book offers, however, is just a couple of papers of critique on the book and what Oates meant by some of the events in the book.
I needed this for a class, but I don't mind keeping it. Still a good buy.
She wasn't home alone for very long when she heard a car pull up. When she went to the front door to see who it was, she was very taken back when she learned that it was the guy from the car the other night. He got out and said "I ain't late, am I?" Connie reminded him that she had no idea who he was. That is when he told her it was Arnold Friend and that it was also painted on the side of his car, and he was there to be her friend. Arnold tried to get Connie to go for a ride with him and his friend Ellie who had a radio that they were listening to Bobby King. Arnold knew that Connie liked Bobby King. However Connie was still taken by the fact that he knew what her name was. She questioned him as to why he even knew what her name was, and to her surprise he knew what all of her friends names were, and what her family's names were, and actually where they were at that very moment. Connie was quite frightened by this.
Connie moved from the front steps back into the house and continued to try to get Arnold to leave, talking to him through the screen door. Arnold at this point was out of his car and leaning on the front of his car.Read more ›
