So I was looking for a short book to quickly get through for my summer homework and I came up with:
Death of a Salesman by: Arthur Miller
This book made me a little bit sad, simply because the dad, Willy, is getting old and just starts losing it. And it's just not something I enjoy; watching people deteriorate like that. And his sons, Biff and Happy, don't really help him at all. But! The main theme of the book is not about Willy, it's about Biff. He is middle-aged and still hasn't settled in a job. But he realizes that it's because he hasn't been doing the things that he wants to do, for himself. So, the moral of this story, is to do things for yourself and do things that you love.
