To Kill a Mockingbird


By the end of To Kill a Mockingbird, the book's first sentence: "When he was thirteen, my brother Jem got his arm badly broken at the elbow," has been explained and resolved. What did you think of the events that followed the Halloween pageant? Did you think that Bob Ewell was capable of injuring Scout or Jem? How did you feel about Boo Radley's last-minute intervention?

Bob Ewell is more than capable to injuring Scout or Jem and with his drunken ways, he would easily have no remorse if he did hurt them. Boo Radley's intervention was definitely needed if they were going to survive Radley's attack. I personally always liked seeing Boo get in the middle of this argument.
