The Pearl by John Steinbeck

Hulla hoop! Haha. Today, we've finished discussing our synopsis in each chapters of form 5 literature which is The Pearl. To be honest, i havent done reading any chapters, yet! I do have read some paragraphs in chapter 1, but it was just soo little of it. Only 2 pages out of 80-something. =,="

Haha. The sentences in the novel are so deep-meaning, and for me, it's kinda hard to understand. It's very classical. That's why i gave up reading it. Plus, novels are not really my type of ice cubes. Not so addictive and seductive enough for me. HAHA. So far, ive only done The Phantom Of The Opera.

But for The Pearl, ive read the synopsis, and i think i can catch the story. So, today when teacher was telling us about the two last chapters which im not familiar with, i decided to sketch the synopsis of whole chapters in the novel. Ok, let me show you what ive sketched.

|Clickable mode|

Haha. I know it's not too details but it's simple and easy for me to understand. Let me get you into the descriptions for what ive sketched up there.

Okay. It's about one happy family Kino, Juana and their son, Coyotito. One day, a scorpion had bitten their son. Her mother, Juana called the doctor but the doctor refused to come just because they're poor.

So, one day I dont remember how, but Kino had found a rare most-expensive and hard-to-find pearl. The news spread really fast and furious 4. hahahaha. Everyone now knew about the pearl. Meanwhile, Kino had dream of something to do with the pearl, other than to cure his son. Which is,

-to get officially married in the church
-to buy new clothes for his family
-to buy a new harpoon
-a rifle
-and an education for his son.

He wanted to sell the pearl but the pearl buyer lied to him and said that the pearl is just a common pearl and he will only buy it for i-dont-remember the amount. But it's a cheap price. So, Kino decided not to sell the pearl. He went back home and someone attacked him for the pearl.

Her wife, Juana worried and she decided to throw away the pearl because she thought that the pearl had bring evil to their family. But Kino are so stubborn plus greedy plus hot-tempered so he stopped Juana from throwing the pearl away. Juana fell down. Huh! What a husband~ =,="

After that, they've been attacked again but this time, Kino accidently killed the attacker. So, they hide themselves in a cave. and after that I forgot. Haha. I only remember teacher said that someone accidently shot his son with a gunfire(?). Something like that. So, their son dead. And they went back to La Paz, and Kino finally threw the pearl into the ocean. THE END.

That's all about. So how was it? Ive skipped some parts, but i think i can make it till the end. I skipped the part when the doctor came to their house and when everyone turned out to be bad and wanted the pearl so badly, also the part when they burnt Kino's house. and many other parts.

Read it and you'll know it. But if you're tooo lazy to read, just pay attention and do not ever skipped your literature class. Haha. Or just read the synopsis from any reference book. Understand the story and then you can sketch your own synopsis. Hehe. Believe me, it's easier to remember and understand sketches than some long words.

So yeah
, that is it. I dont know why im posting in English. Maybe it's because of im telling about english literature so i think better i typed in english. Eventhough I know there are muuuuuuuch of grammatical errors in my typing, i still want to type in English. Hehe. Such a long time i didnt speak in english neither in the net nor in the real life. I only did it on papers and during orals. huhu =,="

Nevermind about the language. Bahasa will still be my first language. =D. Btw, i really likeeeeeeeee the song Trouble Is A Friend veery much. I dont know why. Keep on listening to the song over and over again. Hehe. Ok. That's all for today. Veerry much WORDS, i know. Haha. Thanks for reading! See you in the next post! :)

THE END, 5.18pm

nami o fish said...

in english?oh now that's good..

aaahh,The Pearl.I've read the book few years back and it's a great story.

This is the right way to introduce English to students-not by Science and Maths.

Is Science and Maths in English difficult for you Eyka?Because during my time,it was in Bahasa,yet there's so many people flunked at exams.I bet there will be more,right?

Welcome to serious English literature.Go to Borders Times Square and find some serious English texts,from Shakespeare to Charles Dickens.George Orwell is great too!

nami o fish said...


It's a great story.Plus,I think it's around 30 pages,right?

You never read 200++ English texts with some old English words in Shakespeare I guess.

Reading is fun!

Ruhil Rosley said...

sketch itu berkesan.
pandai sketching la si eyka ini.
btw yang part last tu.
coyotito tu menangis.
si hunter ingat tu suara macam coyote pup.
sebab tu dia tembak.
so dia tembak coyotito sebab dia ingat coyotito itu ialah coyote pup.
cerita dia memang best walaupun literature macam susah sikit.
