Death of a Salesman, by Arthur Miller, can fit into the Tragedy/Drama/Fiction genres.  Willy Loman returns back home, while listening to a sweet flute. He realizes that he is a failure, as a father and a husband. Willy’s sons, Happy and Biff, are not successful, and Willy's career is falling. Biff, who constantly argues with his father, has nothing to say to him, even after coming back to his hometown. However, after one incident, everything changes.

*spoiler* I enjoyed reading Death of a Salesman because it portrayed more than you would think. The book felt real to me, almost as if I had some connection to the plot. I like the relationship between Biff and Happy. Also, I like the constant feuds between Biff and Willy. These arguments add feeling and emotion to the book, which explains why it was a job well done! Finally, I think the connection people made to this book was real because of Willy’s death. Not even I could have guessed that Willy’s life was terrible enough to commit suicide. Wow!  I think the cover brings out a lot of emotion, one being tragic. I like it!  I rate this book 5/5.
