Quite boring unless you’re able to become fully invested in the characters (I, unfortunately, was not). On the topic of racism, it’s an interesting read in the context of seeing how civil rights have progressed since the writing of this book, but that’s about it. The characters are still racist and Atticus is still painfully white. Him and the book give a lot of “passes” on other character’s racism and frame racism is about the individual rather than the system, something I found rather annoying. Again, not a /bad/ read per say, but it wasn’t very engaging and if you’re looking for a commentary on racism, this isn’t it. However, the writing style and structure with how Harper Lee presented characters were very nicely done and it was satisfying to compare them and look back and realize connections she was setting up (which made sense, since this is a small town).
