    And it may just exceed all our expectations. We'll never know if we don't give it a chance.
    Yeah I pretty much love everything about that book, and Atticus in general.

    He is a little Mary Sue, but forgivable because he is such a powerfully impactful one. Perfectly written, or nearly, and I don't want to see him go.

    But I might be getting ahead of myself. But I do suspect that this book is just going to be a morose reflection upon his life, barious characters touching upon the good of his character, his impact, ect. How his strength that was before his time carried the town into places they never knew. But god.

    I may or may not read it immediately, maybe I will delay the inevitable for a little(or what I sort of percieve to be the inevitable), but yeah I am sure that evenetually the temptation to read just a little bit further and examine all that went on just to a greater degree will just become too encompassing that I will have to read it.

    But I swear I have some pretty high, semi unfair, expecations for this book. If it is a huge disappointment... Well..

    So yeah still not sure when and if I will be reading this. But I will because honestly it is going to kick me in the gut, but hopefully in the same way the first one did. Don't know how to decribe that beyond wow.

    And @Kas, two words-read it. One of the few books that I will openly suggest anyone read.

    The Bell Jar though... Kind of different. More of an emotional rollercoaster than the ride of to Kill a Mockingbird. For me it was ups and downs and ups and downs until almost it was like... Maybe something really does need to happen. Why can't something happen? Why is she going through this all?

    But again that was well done, the disarray was kind of the point. As she got further and further disconnected from her own sanity the book started to reflect that.

    But not particularly liked by me. Not awful, but like a 5/10

    Yeah, I don't care, either. It works. (Most of the time.) That's good enough for me.

    I am discomforted to be aware that when winter comes again I will have situations where I will feel discomfort because I will be too cold and will make effort to warm myself again.

    Someone told me that there's broadcast problems with the show now because of the episodes were they talk about the african american guy as spear chucker but the principal characters are very anti-war and I would say anti-capitalist or at least for the common man and woman against the pretentious snobs and snobbery.

    Charles Winchester was a pretentious capitalist snob, and he was a good person who was mostly liked and respected by the other characters. (He's also my favorite.)

    I dont like him at all but I do think that he's human, something which modern shows cant always do as well.

    I understand. We don't have to read that one as a group. (But I will be reading it. And I'll let you know if it's a huge disappointment or not.)

    That's how I felt about A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. I didn't dislike it, but I kept wondering when something would actually happen, or when it would get better. And it never did, really. It wasn't bad. Just... meh.

    Oh no there will be a book thread/secret club. I have decided that that is what is best for the forum, and this book will be at the top of the list. I will suffer in silence, I am prepared. It may be a club of one, it may be a club of many, the thread shall grow as it sees fit.


    Yeah I mean I reccomend reading it sort of... It just wasn't particularly a book for me. I do not remember it that well, but what I do recall was that it was... Something else. Not depressing per say, but had themes of depression running through it strongly. But a pretty good book all in all.

    Never read a tree grows in Brooklyn. Ever read 'As I Lay Dying'?
