Everyone seems to praise this novel and hold it as a literary masterpiece What I got from this book was boredom slowness dryness confusion and random unnecessary scenes that did nothing to further anything 🌷 I WAS BORED AND ALMOST FELL ASLEEP Those first hundred pages? Boring Absolutely boring I absolutely HATED that whole first section because it was boring to read and I literally did not care about anything that happened nor did I care about any of the characters It was boring it was pointless and providing Scout’s outlook on the current events could’ve been done in a much shorter and much less dense way It was just so slow and dry and confusing?? There were the most random scenes that had no effect on the plot or characters whatsoever Sure it’s great to provide backstory to things But including every tiny minuscule unnecessary detail about their childhood??? No thank you good sir To be honest after reading the whole book I still don’t really care for the characters And if I don’t care for the characters how do I care about whatever the hell happens to them? The only one I actually like is Atticus and the others Scout Jem and motions vaguely the rest of them are meh I don’t hate them but I don’t love them They’re just so very meh and do not stand out at all And Scout is way too smart for her age People may think otherwise but she is so precocious and it is SO ANNOYING🌹 IT GETS SLIGHTLY BETTER As soon as we got into the trial and after part though my interest increased considerably I was able to actually focus on the story —instead of finding myself falling asleep like I had been in the first section It was interesting to read about And some events I did not see coming at all though it was written in the most boring way that I couldn’t really bring myself to care about it sad as they were which shows some really horrible writing skillsI honestly could comment on the whole trial section but if I had to find the willpower and effort to read the first section of the book and receive nothing in compensation I don’t feel particularly obliged to deeply analyze things in a positive light to convince you how clears throat good and perfect this book is Because it is not In my very humble opinion🌷 HOW THIS BOOK IS PROBLEMATICToday we are “taught” to believe the victim—of rape harassment assault and other forms of abuse It’s something we should all do But in this book we are inclined to not believe the victim in her claim that a man raped her since we are led to believe that this was a false accusation because of the man’s skin color It’s a complicated situation Do we believe the victim or do we believe the perpetrator who may have been falsely accused because of racial prejudice?The characters are also disturbingly problematic Atticus as much as I like him is a white savior It makes a little bit of sense in the time period but it surely does not fit in times like now when white people need to step back and make sure to let people of color have a voice Allies are extremely important but there’s a difference between an ally and a savior Calpurnia is also a Black woman who is written off as complicit in her own servitude though she is luckily not treated as a slave or servant She also doesn’t seem to have many complexities to her character and neither do the other Black people who are portrayed as helpless and act as if Atticus is the only one that can save them which is a really ugly look And even Mayella Ewell The way her character is written can show that people who are of lower status or are not as welcome in society might not be believed if they were raped and spoke up about it And the fact remains that this book is a book about racism written by a white woman in Western society It’s nice that she tries to tackle racism and bring awareness to it or whatever but Harper Lee could not have written a book accurately educating about racism against Black people because she has no experience in it Even someone who experiences racism cannot write completely accurately about it because the individuals facing racism are exactly that—individuals not a monolith But they can sure write it accurately than someone who has never experienced racism and can only view it from a Western white person’s perspective This isn’t necessarily a problematic fact of itself but it’s something I think people should rememberAnd of course though this is less the fault of the book itself and the American school system we really need to stop using this book in schools to teach students about racism against Black people There are plenty of novels discussing racism that come from actual Black voices that can be read instead 🌹 CONCLUSION? So A book I expected to like but one I was ridiculously bored by Maybe it’s because I don’t like historical fiction? Maybe it’s because I don’t like classics? Maybe it’s because I had to read it for school? I don’t know All I know is everything about this book can go rot in a hole Far far away from me
