absolutely, I've tried to read it but I only got about 85% of the way and it just got too girly for me. I will probably finish it soon though.

Erica M. | 5 comments It is not that girlie! It's too proper to be anywhere near girlie. But I stopped around that area, too.

Zach W. | 10 comments Yes, I would recommend reading "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee, very much in fact. There are boring parts and there are interesting parts; however, it is a fantastic book that you can really learn something from. Overall, it is a classical book that requires time and patience, but it is all worth the wait.

Zach W. | 10 comments I am almost done with the Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It is a classic example of life during the jazz age. Gatsby himself proves to be a very rich deity kind of a person, while the main character proves to be a very poor, low-life, peasant. However, despite their differences, the two still became friends! Although the main character becomes jealous of what he could have had ( from my point of view anyways). So the overall theme of the book would definitely be about jealousy (in my opinion) like "To Kill a Mockingird" was about segragation and prejudice.

Zach W. | 10 comments The reason why I think that the "great gatsby" is about jealousy is because...... I don't want to post any spoilers, if anyone wants to know how I came to those conclusions, inbox me a request for the information and I will inbox you the conclusions! :)
