Conditions of Use
I think Marden Dahlstedt’s writing in The Terrible Wave is interesting and fun at the same time. Most books’ writings only have one word to describe all the events like deadly, dangerous, scary, weird, breathtaking, and even exciting. Dahlstedt creates the story in the reader’s head. I think that it is impossible to find a book that gives the reader a better picture in his/her head.
Marden Dahlstedt’s writing is awesome to read due to all the descriptive writing she puts in it. She adds very interesting sentences like, “Megan felt herself being pushed, as if by a mighty hand, through the jagged crack between darkness and light,” and "Gasping, Megan saw the great dark bulk of a horse, slack and floating on its side, its large, soft eyes staring sightlessly into the rain.” Those quotes are just some of her normal work. These quotes happened when Megan was floating on a mattress that she landed on after getting shot into the air from the pressure of the water, from the enormous amount of water heading her way, going through her house. Some other fantastic quotes are, "The trunk of a giant tree came rushing past, its roots waving above the water like a hundred searching fingers,” and "A piano drifted by her, its white keys looking like a great grinning mouth.” Notice all the descriptive detail that she adds. Those quotes take place in the same time period as the first quotes did. Those are my favorite sentences so far in the The Terrible Wave.
Marden Dahlstedt’s writing is awesome! Her writing is remarkable because she knows exactly what I want to read before I even find out. It’s like she is reading my mind. I guarantee her writing is the best in the universe because she can make a boring and sad story into a thrilling, risk taking adventure. That is THE TRUTH, about Marden Dahlstedt’s writing in The Terrible Wave.
