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
