I thought that this book was great. It showed that you shouldn't judge a person that you enver met and don't know. There was great depiction of when blacks were at an all time high. The whoel story of Arthur Radley was very saddening. He was actually a good person, but his past kept him from going outside. He lived out is life in hishouse and iddn't have any children of his own, but had Scout and Jem as substitutes. It was all quite touching: how he have Jema and Scout so many things, and did so many things for them. THe relationshipe between Atticus and his children is really cool. Jem and Scout are allowed to call their father by his first name without giving him any thoughts of disrespect. Atticus is a really nice father, it might seem to many that he isn't a good father, but he is. He lets his kids have space and lets them do as they please as long asi it doesn't involve violence, foul language, disrepsect, or making fun of people. He teaches his kids many things an dis a good role model. He keeps calm, shows respect, is polite, and does pretty cool things. Fore example, he was the greatest shot and best chess player in all of Maycomb, and he gets lots of respect for doing the right thing for all of Maycomb. The Ewells are low down dirty scum, in my opinion. The Ewell that was in Scout's class was so rude to the teacher, when she tried so hard. Tom Robinson helped Mayella Ewell so many times and she doesn't even thing of returning a favor. Mr. Ewell is worse, he beats on Mayella and goes ot any length to get revenge, even if it goes below the belt. All their wrong doings make me sort of happy that they have lvies with great hardships.
