Post 1: Pgs. 1-35

So Far in The Pursuit of Happyness, The main Character (Chris Gardner) is at an orphanage and is bieng raised to the best of capabilities at the time. The book starts out with the Prolouge, which lasts about 16 pages and opens the book. It prettymuch sums up the whole book without spoiling it. The Prolouge talks about how Chris overcame his early hardships to become a successful stockbroker. I was really intrigued and was much more excited to read te book after reading the prolouge. It showed me a brief glimpse of how the book was going to flow, and how Chris was going to rise above all and succeed even with a son in his hands. The prolouge (in my opinion) followed the movie very closely, but from what I have heard, the book is much, much different, in the aspect of content, and plotline.

Chapter 1 talked mainly about Chriss life as a young orphan. The whole 1st page explained his favorite food at the time, which was a warm candy made with maple syrup, which made him feel like he was on top of the world. It gave me a glimpse of how the author is going to be writing (very, very discriptive), which i happen to enjoy when reading non-fiction books, because it gives me an excellent idea as to what the scenario looks like, sounds like, smells like, and most importantly feels like.
