question on a book assignment

hey everyone...i have to do this assignment for class and these are some really tough questions on the book Peace Like A River by Leif Enger

1)Family loyalty often prevails over "the law" Agree or disagree
(and i have to use quotes from the book that will back up my answers)

2)In Peace Like A River, the act of breathing functions as a metaphor for life itself. (and i have to see how the characters dealt with this and other ideas about this and use quotes from the book to back this up)

if you would please please please help me with this ASAP because my assignment is due tomorrow and give me some ideas or answers or page numbers where i can find the answers to these 2 questions your help would be greatly appreciated.... THANKS!



Thanks again,
Ashley


Unfortunately, I have not read that book. Even so, it is YOUR assignment to answer these questions — to see how well you understand the contents of the book. Of course, you have to read the book first. Have you?

Are there any points in the book where any of the characters have to choose between rules ("laws") and family members? How did they deal with this conflict?

Deep breathing might be related to the fullness of one's life in contrast to shallow breathing. "Smelling the roses" could be an example, if something similar to that is mentioned in the book.

I know you wanted more than this, but I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.



ohhh hey i appreciate your help and advice on this matter...i didn't have time to read the whole book. i only read 4 out of 23 chapters...pretty sad huh? so i really need help... i tried looking through out the book but its wayy 2 hard...man this assignment it tough.


We are here to help you, but not do the assignment for you. Since you waited until the last minute, you might skim throught the book for words like famiy, law and breathing to see what they relate to.

Your dilemma is very likely to be caused by procrastination — waiting until the "last minute" to do assignments. This article might help you in the future:

I hope this helps a little more.
