Conduit by C.C. Dowling

REUTS Publications, LLC

When college senior Jane Lamb dies suddenly, she discovers that the afterlife is less pearly gates and fluffy clouds and more standing in line at the DMV. But before she can spend eternity lamenting over her short, unremarkable life, she’s offered a do-over—as a Conduit, a reincarnated messenger contracted to reap souls.
Determined to do things right the second time, Jane takes the job and reincarnates as eighteen-year-old college freshman Liv Hartley. Only, the excitement for her new life doesn’t last. There are consequences to bearing the coveted infinity symbol tattoo marking her as a Conduit, and Liv quickly finds that getting a second chance doesn’t mean getting a better one. Possessive demons, stolen assignments, and a love life that’s decidedly complicated are all a far cry from the mundane existence Jane led. But with more questions piling up than bodies, there’s only one thing Liv knows for sure: life doesn’t get any easier after death.

Rappaccini's Daughter by Nathaniel Hawthorne

To start off my reaction paper, if there was anything intriguing right from the beginning I would have to say it was the title. Before even diving right into the story, I enjoyed the spare time to think of what the plot would be all about. My wild guess was not even close to the real plot but it was this. The title 'Rappaccini's Daughter' sounded to me that Rappaccini values his daughter very much. Although I had a feeling of fear because it seemed that Rappaccini owns his daughter as a property for his own amusement thus the daughter became very valuable to him.

After reading the story, I have come up with the idea that Rappaccini was not entirely evil in a sense that he was still sensitive about his daughter's well-being because for one, he was able to provide her a partner who she will be able to connect with named Giovanni. Rappaccini did not abandon his daughter but created someone like her as her own mate - someone who can withstand her poison wanting and making his daughter, Beatrice, happy.
