Lindsay_93 Posted June 25, 2009 Report Share Posted June 25, 2009 I just finished reading To Kill a Mockingbird. I really enjoyed it, and I'm glad that I somehow escaped having to read it for school. I think that I wouldn't have liked it as much. The freshmen this year had to read it. When we were freshmen, we read Lord of the Flies (eh), Our Town (eh again), and Ethan Frome (never again). Lord of the Flies, we were told by our English teacher this year, was said to be a story told by William Golding to his kids as a bedtime story and he really didn't mean any of the supposed symbolism. If this is true, then I want the hours I spent researching how utilitarianism and totalitarianism were present and I would also like to know what sick parent tells their kids stories about schoolboys trying to kill each other - I think that just might be the thing to give me nightmares.
