While reading this book through this section I found myself thinking about many different things, I wasn’t focused at all. Something I was thinking about was how I can relate everything in the book to something in my life. I picked the first passage from chapter twelve. ”Jem was twelve. He was difficult to live with, inconsistent, moody. His appetite was appalling, and he told me so many times to stop pestering him I consulted Atticus: “Reckon he’s got a tapeworm?” Atticus said no, Jem was growing. I must be patient with him as little as possible.” (pg.115) I liked this passage because it shows that Jem is finally growing up and starting to mature more. He is getting to his teen years and starting to feel like he doesn’t want to be by his parents and he’s having an attitude.
Another passage I picked was on page 139 of the fourteenth chapter. “ Night”, I murmured, I picked my way across the room to turn on the light. As I passed the bed I stepped on something warm, resilient, and rather smooth. It was not quite like hard rubber, and I had the sensation that it was alive. I also heard it move. Pg.139. I like this passage because Scout was freaking out because she thinks that she stepped on a snake. This passage is entertaining and I Enjoyed reading more. If I was with the author right now I’d ask if the dogs name Tom Robinson had anything to do with Rob Johnson because the names are very similar.
