Catch a Falling Star by Kim CulbertsonA deliciously charming novel about finding true love . . . and yourself.
Nothing ever happens in Little, CA. Which is just the way Carter Moon likes it. But when Hollywood arrives to film a movie starring former child star turned PR mess Adam Jakes, everything changes. Carters town becomes a giant glittery set and, much to her annoyance, everyone is starry-eyed for Adam. Carter seems to be the only girl not falling all over herself to get a glimpse of him. Which apparently makes her perfect for the secret offer of a lifetime: playing the role of Adams girlfriend while hes in town, to improve his public image, in exchange for a hefty paycheck. Her family really needs the money and so Carters agrees. But it turns out Adam isnt at all who she thought he was. As they grow closer, their relationship walks a blurry line between whats real and whats fake, and Carter must open her eyes to the scariest of unexplored worlds - her future. Can Carter figure out what she wants out of life AND get the guy? Or are there no Hollywood endings in real life?

Song Go and Catch Falling Star Analysis
Post a Comment. Even if one could catch the falling star, just as nobody can beget a child on the forked-rooted plant, a plant which has human qualities, so also one cannot discover a woman who is faithful to her lover. In the first stanza of the poem Donne uses scientific exploration astronomy, creativity, memory, Bible, fairy tales, psychology and morality. He thus breaks away from the Petrarchan tradition of woman-worship. However, if per chance, such a woman is ever met with, she would deserve all honour, worship and adoration.
Donne's Song: Central Theme
Yet the way Donne builds to this conclusion is beguiling. Can we still enjoy a poem that seems to be so down on half the human race? How should we view the poem? Or does it derive its vital energy from offering both the exploration motif and the complaint about women in one poem? Can we overlook the negative twist at the end? It comes with very useful annotations and an informative introduction. The author of this article, Dr Oliver Tearle, is a literary critic and lecturer in English at Loughborough University.
