I found the character of Boo Radley a bit confusing. What was his purpose?
Was it to allow the children to learn not to judge people, or jump to conclusions? Was his self-imposed incarceration at home significant in any way? Was he cast as the secretive hermit just so he could come out later to do a surprising good deed?
And for all Scouts fears of him in the first half, when she finally did meet him, she was so friendly and considerate towards him- I couldnt see how this jump could be made so quickly- unless she was distracted by the events that led to her meeting him, and their intensity......
Just wondering :)
Maybe his character is written a little over the top with those characteristics to personify the best in people?
Anyway, I just realized that there's a group read of To Kill a Mockingbird in June as well, so if you remember it that long you can participate in that (hopefully more organized) group read. I'll try to remember to post a link to it here when they make the thread. :)
