The Fun They had by Mind Map: The Fun They had

1. Analysis--In "The Fun They Had," the paper book that Tommy discovers in his attic functions as a foil for Margie to critique her own reality. Tommy tells us the book is about school, but no more information is provided: the details of the book's content are notably absent from the text. Instead, the narrator emphasizes the impact of the book on Margie. She is captivated by the images of children learning and playing together in a common schoolhouse building, and by the idea of human teachers giving standardized lessons. Margie longs for the life depicted in the pages of the book. It is this longing that creates the irony of the story: Asimov's readers, and readers today, are living in the reality that Margie imagines. We know that children do not see it as the utopia of Margie's dreams.

2. Character--- Margie and Tommy are students from the year 2157. Tommy is a thirteen-year-old boy and Margie is an eleven-year-old girl. Both are neighbours and good friends who like to spend time together like children of their age usually do.
