Raney

In my opinion, I did not like this book. I do not like books, which involve racist
notions. How could she be so narrow-minded? Her parents taught her everything when it
came to treating people who were different as different, and she could not manage to
ignore their advice. She was a very racist woman, which caused a conflict between her and
her husband, whose best friend was a black man named Johnny Dobbs. Raney believed that if
her mother could be racist that she could be too. This caused conflict with Charles
because she believed she could eaves drop on Charles’s phone conservations through
the heating vent in the bedroom.

Charles and Raney had very different beliefs and that is why they have trouble getting
along with each other sometimes. Raney comes from a family who has strong family and
religious ties. Charles is not a serious church attendant, and his family is very spread
out across the nation, preventing him from seeing them on a regular basis. Charles is a
highly educated man, whereas Raney has only a High School degree. The only things that
they have in common are that they both have respect for each other and they both like
music. This is not a very strong basis for a relationship between two people who are
supposed to be in love.

In the beginning, Raney is a mama’s girl who wants to do everything that her mother
did when she was young. On the honeymoon she was upset with Charles because he
didn’t do exactly what he was supposed to do, which means that he did not do exactly
what Raney’s father did on his honeymoon. On his honeymoon, he just stood there in
his Fruit of a Loom underwear drinking champagne out of a plastic cup. She was probably
told how the honeymoon went from her mother. One of the biggest conflicts the couple had
was the fact that Raney was very racist and Charles best friend was black. Charles was
upset because he did not agree with Raney’s feelings towards Mr. Dobbs. This is
another thing that Raney was taught by her parents to be racist. At one point, it appears
that Raney is getting over her racist views when Johnny Dobbs is named the godfather of
her child. The only thing that keeps it the same way, racist, is that he still stays at
the Ramada Inn.

In my opinion, the time in which Raney spent with the counselor did not help her progress
through the story. She was still the same person, but more racist. This was evident by the
statement she made “ I didn’t know we were sharing secrets”. There
