Why Homer Decides To Save Harold
In the book, The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg, Homer looses his brother, Harold. He looses him by getting his uncle so mad, that he sold his brother to the army. Later, Homer runs away and finds a house that is miles away from his uncle’s house. The person that lives in the house was very kind and decides to take care of him so he can be safe and healthy. Homer, though, didn’t want to stay in the house. He was desperate to find Harold.
Why? Why did homer decide to save Harold instead of staying in the protective house? As you read on, you will learn why I think he went to save his brother.
First of all, I think he wants to save Harold because he cares about him. I think he really cares about Harold. I think of this because Harold always helped him and cared for him. I believe that Homer cares just as much as Harold cares for him.
Again, I told you before, Harold really cared about Homer. Another reason I think Homer wants to save Harold is because since Harold helped him a lot, he wants to help him back. So I think that Homer wants to show Harold how much he cared for him.
As I read the book, I realized that Homer felt a little guilty that Harold is gone because he keeps on mentioning that if he didn’t get his uncle so mad Harold, would still be with him. So, I think that is another reason he wants to save Harold so badly, because he feels guilty of what he has done.
The last reason I think that Homer wants to save Harold is because I think Homer would prefer Harold than his safety. I think of this because Homer decided not to stay in the protected house and to save Harold instead.
So now you know why Homer decided to leave the house and save Harold. To my opinion, I think the most important reason why Homer is so desperate to save Harold, is because he cares about him. Homer really cares about his brother, Harold.
