What Is Good About Living in Big City

In little towns it is believed that people who have voluntarily moved to big cities are absolutely nuts. At first, I also found it difficult to understand why I need to replace living in a place where you know everybody and which you can cross from one end to the other within an hour with some polluted and overcrowded megalopolis where nobody is aware of your existence.

However, after moving to a big city I discovered one simple fact – life in megalopolis is not bad at all. It has its own positive features which make it always strange and never boring.

Naughty Kids

All newborns are sweet angels; at least their mothers will be sure of this fact. However, with time children often become naughty and aggressive with no visible reason.

The moral values in the book “Lord of The Rings” are depicted quite explicitly, I would even say boldly. Thought the religious context of the book still causes argument both between the analysts and fans. The absence of definite religious line in this book isn’t likely to worry the average reader.
