John Marsden Writing Topic #146
From Writing Topic #131 until Writing Topic #149 are “based on a book”. The book I have chosen to focus on is Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern.
How intelligent is the main character in this book?**
Both Rosie and Alex are intelligent in their own ways. Rosie becomes intelligent through her life choices, especially through the difficulty of her choices. Rosie is more emotionally intelligent than Alex, however she is more naive and it shows, especially with her marriage. Where Rosie is more emotionally intelligent and for lack of better word, street smart, Alex intelligence comes from his studies, he is book smart.
