Writing Styles of Jack London and Mark Twain

thQSCFGZUW

I recently read two very well written books. The first was A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court and the second was White Fang by Jack London. Both of these authors use similar styles when writing.

One thing that both of these authors do is write the story through the characters point of view. Through the whole story you get the story straight from the character.

On the other hand the way that you see it through their eyes is different. In A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court the main character is the one telling the story. He is telling the story of his past to you. Almost like a journal written for you. In White Fang the author tells you exactly what White Fang (this is the name of his character) feels. You are reading his story as if you were there with him. Through the book you are in the same time as White Fang. This is unlike Mark Twain’s book because you are looking into the past of his character.

Another thing the authors have in common is their books are very easy to follow. Nothing ever gets confusing and it can actually become very exciting. The books can be read by all ages and they will keep your attention well. Both authors are very similar so if you like one of them you are sure to like the other.
