I think the Journal format is better than Rachel’s Journey.
The first reason why I think the Journal format is better because of it point of view. The point of view is good because it is told by the first person. The first person point of view makes it feel real and emotional. You feel a little scared when Rachel goes around the bush and sees the big ox. When the story is told by the first person it is it better because then you get the real feel of it.
The second reason I like the Journal format is because of the illustrations. I like the illustration because they look like Rachel drew them herself. They are very good and have many lines and they look old from so long ago. The next reason I like the illustrations is because they are drawn by the real person that tells the story, the one that wrote the Journal herself. Rachel drew the pictures to show events that helped you understand the event better.
The third reason I like the Journal format for the story Rachel’s Journey is because of the emotions of the characters. You can tell they are frightened when Rachel drops her paddle in the water. You know that she is scared to see the Indian’s because of the stories told about the Indians. You can feel emotion better in a Journal format then a narrative format. Rachel is happy and scared a lot in this story.
These are the reasons why I like the Journal format better than the Narrative format for Rachel’s Journey.
