The fundamental goal of any reading is knowing enough science and knowing the language (comprehending and understanding).

This study analyzed Danielle Steel’s novel “Special Delivery”. The writer chose the novel because she was very interested in analyzing it. This thesis is focused to answer the statement of problems. Those are; what are Amanda Robbins’s emotions? And How does Amanda Robbins describe her emotion?
