Auf die Schnelle:

The story “Just Along for the Ride” by Dennis Kurumada in 1972 is about young boys who dirve in a car and try to flatten a kid. This plan gets out of control and doesn’t turn out well. The main character of the story ”Just Along for a Ride” is a male student**, about 16 years old**. The protagonist uses everyday language (l.15).

He describes himself being “pretty dull” (l.3) kein Komma because he drives around with his friend who just got (Zeit) his license. In fact, he is “cold, damp and bored” (l. 5) what the narrator also tells us directly (the main character is also the narrator).

That implies that they aren’t very creative, otherwise he wouldn’t be bored. As the other boys want to flatten a kid, he doesn’t agree. On the one hand, he has feelings of guilty, he’s a thoughtful person. On the other hand, he is scared, which means that he is a careful person and thinks about (Präposition) the consequences. Because of this characteristic, he is gibed by his friends. They think that he is a killjoy and not humorous. For example: “You worry too much. Whenever we wanna have some fun, you always chicken out.” (l.15). He isn’t very assertive or strong-minded in the beginning. His friends retune and oppress him. For instance: “We drive up slow, then swing open the door real fast, and knock the guy on his can,” says Phil (l.10). The protagonist is against it. “You guys are nuts,” he says and “What if they call the cops?” (l.15) Although (Wort) they still do it. Or (kein Satzanfang) in line 34 he wants the driver to stop the car but the driver convinces him that it is necessary to drive on. In the end, he feels guilty even if it hasn’t been his idea and he tried to stop the others. That’s why he is really responsible-minded but he also doesn’t (Stil) want his friends to get in trouble, he’s kind of loyal. He shows his feelings what makes him sensible (= vernünftig; sensible = sensitive) (l.30). Finally, he gets strong-minded and assertive. At night, his friends visit him and propose / suggest that he forgets about the crime. He gets mad and visits the victim, what nobody expects. All in al,l I think the protagonist is a adorable person. I can identify with the character because it’s realistic how he reacts (Stil). Besides, I liked -- a lot that he did not do what his friends want him to do (Stil). He goes his own way (Ausdruck) and that’s brave.

In opposite to (Ausdruck) the protagonist there’s Phil also a co-driver. He is male, a student and about 16 years old. The first time he says something, he cuts off the protagonist (l.8). That’s impolite and not respectful (Wort). On top of that, he is vicious, careless and sneaky because he has the idea “to drive up to somebody….some kid….and flatten him.”(l.8) He is language is colloquial, e. g. “We wanna have some fun…“ (l.16) and firstly (Wort) he doesn’t speak fluently (l.8) It seems that he tries to be funny and cool**, so** the others respect him. In conclusion I think Phil isn’t very authentic and very likeable. I have the impression that he is a daredevil and a false friend.

Für das Vokabular und die Rechtschreibung empfehle ich ein gutes (online) Wörterbuch, z.B. pons.eu,

für die Grammatik ego4u.de und englisch-hilfen.de.

  • In der Schriftsprache sollten keine Kurzformen (doesn't usw.) verwendet werden.

Ich hoffe, ich habe nichts übersehen.
