The Pearl


The Pearl starts off with a poor family that runs into a problem. The
problem is that their son Coyotito got bit by a posinous snake and they need
money so that the doctor will treat him. Kino, the father, went out to find a
pearl so that they would have enough money to get Coyotito to the doctor. The
pivoting point in the story is when Kino finds the pearl of all pearls , the
pearl he finds is huge. The whole town finds out about Kino\'s findings, he
starts to since an evil feeling comeing from people and the pearl. When it
comes to seling the pearl Kino can\'t sell it in his town because all the pearl
buyers are working for the same person so they try to cheat Kino, but he doesn\'t
sell the pearl. He then tries to go to the city to sell the pearl but before he
can go he is attacked by someone trying to steal the pearl from Kino, Kino had
to defend his self by stabbing and killing the attacker. So he has to flee the
town because there are trackers comeing after him, his wife, Juana insists on
going with him so they flee up to a mountain to get away from the trackers.
There were three trackers , two on foot, one on horse with a rifle. Kino
decided to attack them while they were sleeping, so when he attacked them Kino
first tried to get the man on horse, in the struggle Kino killed the trackers
but his son was killed by a bullet. Kino then threw the pearl away.

Kino is a determined man , and he does what he thinks is right, like on
selling the pearl to the towns pearl buyers. He has a small mustache and short
black hair. Juana, kino\'s wife has long black hair and smart.

A conflict in the story is when Kino had a choice between selling the
pearl to the pearl dealers in his town or to sell it some place else. Alothough
the towns people thought Kino should have sold the pearl to the dealer for the
little amount he offered Kino, but Kino did what he thought was right and did
not sell the pearl.

I thought the pearl was a good story. There were some parts in the
story that I got bored of reading because it wasn\'t keeping my interest. Most of
the book was good, I thought that is showed how people in real life act when
they have the chance to get some money. Like how the doctor wouldn\'t treat
Coyotito until he found out that Kino had found the pearl, and even then he had
tricked Kino.
