• To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee so far is a very interesting book and the first section would have you open and curious. In the beginning I found it boring  but once you begin to get into it and read more it

    • This is a great post, Oniesh. I very much had the same experience reading To Kill a Mockingbird, being bored at first but very quickly drawn in. I also love the connections that are being made to the people around you, I think that’s what makes a book a great book. The ability to take a character and, while still giving them a distinct personality, make them relatable, is very tough to do. As to the crash that is talked about in the book, I would recommend looking into the Great Depression, as that’s most likely what she was referring to. I’ve linked an article about it for you, maybe it’ll grow your understanding of the book slightly. https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/americanexperience/features/dustbowl-great-depression/
