This is Boo Radley one of the characters from the book.
The book “To Kill A Mockingbird” is a American Classic that is based on the time of the 1930’s. “To Kill A Mockingbird” teaches the reader about racism, white supremacy, citizenship, and the importance of looking at things from a different perspective. The book shows the events that occurred leading to the breaking of Jeremy Finch’s arm, he is referred to the name of Jem in the book. The circumstances are covered by Jean Louise Finch, well known for the name of Scout. One of the main characters in the book is Arthur ”Boo” Radley, he is a Maycomb myth that is not permitted out of the house unless he sneaks out in the middle of the night.
We rate the book “To Kill A Mockingbird” 8.5 out of 10 mockingbirds. We gave it this because the book has outstanding symbolism that describes the events that occurred to the many characters in the book. Along with that Harper Lee would support many events with foreshadowing the following developments. The inferring in the book supports you to think beyond what the book’s text shows. The author included major conflicts that made the book intriguing. Additionally it assembled to the main event in a thought out movement. These are only some of the positives in “To Kill A Mockingbird”.
Some parts in the book gave us a negative impact. One part that disturbed us was how there were times when Harper Lee would extend events more than they should have. These events included when the Finches were over their families house, scout and her cousin got into an argument. We were given the impression that this event didn’t have a big impact on the book and took longer than needed. As well as people that weren’t needed, for example Mr. Raymond, he was a man who always pretends to be drunk. We believe he isn’t important because he was only in one chapter of the book and never mentioned again. Another person that we believe wasn’t important was Burris Ewell. Burris was only spoken of when Harper wanted to introduce the Ewell family to the book, in our opinion there could be other ways of doing it.
To continue the negativity of the book we believe that the author had some parts that weren’t needed . For example when Calpurnia brought the children to the church on the southern part of town. Another example was when Scout got into an argument with Cecil Jacobs because he was talking bad about Atticus. It isn’t important because it was referred many times that the community spoke bad about them behind their back. It is also said that Scout would always get into fights about these things and that is why we believe that it wasn’t important that only this fight was described in the book. To continue the negatives the beginning of the book didn’t describe the story line to where we could understand the intentions of the book. In the beginning of the book there was a flashback talking about Jem’s broken arm and how it affected his life. There wasn’t a flow and there was a lot of research put in to understand the characters and what is was that Scout was speaking about.
To add on to the positives, we enjoyed how Harper Lee attempted to inform the readers about what people in the south were dealing with. For example when she incorporated the natis to the book and how unfairly they were treated as the colored were being treated in the south. This was what Harper wanted us to know and understand about our country’s past. In addition to the information when Atticus was at the jailhouse late at night Harper wanted the readers to understand that even though we can’t see things it doesn’t mean that it isn’t there. As the KKK didn’t take a big part in the book we once acknowledged that they have always been there behind the scenes. The night at the jailhouse was the only time the readers witnessed the event .To sum it up we rate the book overall 8.5 of 10 mockingbirds. There are some of the positives and negatives as well, but if you enjoy books that are full of adventure this is a good book to read.
