artsy musings of a bibliophile

I am 20-something years old and I love reading books that spark my interest. A bibliophile at heart with a constant desire to understand art, I am a nerdy owner of a curious soul.

To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee I had always planned on reading To Kill a Mockingbird; but just never got around to it as it takes time and patience to read a classic. I finally decided to read it during my flight. I got to read about the first 50 pages and I found it intriguing, to say the least. I also found hard to go on reading as it got boring at times.

But onto around 150 pages I started wondering when will the cycle of Dill and non-Dill will end for Scout. But interesting things started happening and I wondered if I will ever get to know more about Tom Robinson and Boo/Arthur Radley.

I really liked the main characters of Atticus Finch, Scout and Calpurnia. Jem was also thought-provoking, at times. I loved how Harpee Lee took something so ordinary as a childhood and turned it into how we end up seeing the world as. I loved reading the last few pages when everything finally, finally fell into place. How Harper Lee defines the character of Boo Radley; it brings one to think deeply about our actions. It is such a s beautiful story. Atticus Finch portrays an example of how a parent should be.
