Book report: Notting Hill
In the story, there were many people who were Bella, Max, Bernie and Anna, William’s friends, were invited to join birthday party of William’s sister, Honey. There is an interesting plot worth noting. That is Max was going to give the last piece of cake to the person who has the saddest life. I think if I were at Honey’s party, I will choose Anna to have the last piece of cake. As she was a famous film star, she may be required to keep a slim and shapely figure. In order to keep a good figure, not to get fatter, she may have to go on a diet for a long time. So she has worried about her weight since she was nineteen and she had been hungry for ten years. It is pathetic that she cannot eat lots of food which she favors. Also, although she had a lot of boyfriends, no one treated genuinely and sincerely with her. And I think it is important for a famous film star to have good looks. When the time was gone, she will become a middle-aged film star and nobody will ask her to act for a film. Then, she will lose her job and her dream which she may hope to become a famous film star for a long time. Therefore, I think Anna should have the last piece of cake since she was the person who has the saddest life.
Besides, I think William and Anna’s marriage will be successful. Firstly, William loved Anna and Anna loved William that is an important point. Secondly, Anna has found a person, William, who treated genuinely and sincerely with her. And William is not for cheating to take her money or reputation. Thirdly, they went through lots of difficulties and understood each other when they came together. Consequently, they can maintain their relationship for a long time so I think their marriage will be successful.
In addition, I think the reason of William loved Anna is she was good-looking and charmed woman. Also, he liked to watch her film. On the other hand, the reason of Anna loved William is he will not hurt her, not like her ex-boyfriends and she may think that he is a handsome and strong man who can give her a sign of safety. She may also think William is in earnest with her and will not treat her. And in the birthday party, she was happy to meet William’s sister and friends.
