    A mocking bird called Boo Radley


Boo Radley is a character in the book the Mockingbird. .Boo faced many obstacles in his life.  His first obstacles was that he had no friends.  Boo had been charged with a crime of hurting his father with scissors.  He was innocent of doing the crime, but he still went to jail. All of the people in the town were afraid of Boo because they thought he was dangerous.  Boo Radley was actually a very nice person. He didn't leave his house because people made fun of him wherever he went.   The children in the town made up stories about him and said that he ate squirrels and cats.  (Boo was about six and a half feet tall, judging from his tracks, he dined on raw squirrels and any cats he could catch that is why his hands were blood-stained and if you ate an animal raw, you could never was the blood off, Lee, page 16)


Boo Radleys was very lonely.  His brother Nathan did not like him and his own father had him arrested when Boo was younger.  Boo had no friends and never left his house to make friends. Boo Radley spent his days alone and sad. The children in the neighborhood would run into his yard and touch the porch and turn around and run away.   He was misunderstood.  Even when he went to help people, rumors about him were hard to overcome. One night when there was a fire on the street, Scout was outside in the street and Boo and put a blanket on her.  She didn't notice at first, but then realized that Boo Radley had placed the blanket on her.  She was scared of the kind gesture because of Boos reputation,  (“My stomach turned to water and I nearly threw up when Jem held out the blanket and crept toward me)Lee, 72


Other obstacles facing boo was his fear of leaving the house.  One night Jem and Scout were attacked by an angry man, Boo came to their rescue and saved them from death.  Boo put his own fears aside to come to their aid.  


Prejudice is a major obstacle that Boo Radley had to overcome.  In the beginning, Boo is thought to be a killer.  In the end, it is realized that he is just an innocent man.  He is compared to a Mockingbird that is a innocent, good creature.     (“Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy.  They dont eat people, gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us.  That is why it is  a sin to kill a mockingbird”), Lee, p10.

Boo Radley overcame many obstacles in this book.  He was lonely, feared and misunderstood.  In the end of the book, Boo proved that he is an innocent, good person who really wanted to be liked and accepte

  1. 1. It didnt really start off that well because it was very vague on what he was trung to saying about the book.
    2. The quotation i liked the most was the one in his first example cause it explained the rumor of Boo Radley eating squirrels and cats.
    3. It did well with explaining the examples by putting a quotation.
    4. It could be better with wording it out instead of getting to point quickly.

    - Thượng Hải mười năm trước cũng lạc hậu, một hai năm nay mới bắt đầu phát triển mạnh. Nếu như hai thằng đi tới Quảng Đông, Thâm Quyến thì càng thấy chênh lệch nhiều hơn. Thế giới này không dừng bước do chúng ta chậm, anh hôm nay đưa hai thằng đi là để bọn mày quý trọng thời gian, phải nắm bắt cơ hội.

    Triệu Quốc Đống cũng không biết sao mình lại giỏi nói như vậy. Hắn chỉ cảm thấy mình có nhiều điều cần nói với hai thằng em. Để hai thằng em trưởng thành thực hiện giấc mơ không thể đi thực hiện của hắn.

    - Anh, bọn em không hiểu mấy điều anh cần nói. Anh muốn em làm gì, em và anh hai nhất định sẽ đi làm.
    Trường Xuyên mơ hồ cảm nhận được ý của ông anh, nhưng không nắm chắc.

    Triệu Quốc Đống ngẩn ra một chút. Đúng, đây là em ruột của mình, bây giờ có thể làm gì? Một bước lên trời là không thể, dù hắn biết trước cũng có thể làm gì? Lịch sử không thay đổi, cũng không tiến nhanh hơn. Anh có thể thay đổi việc nhỏ nhưng không thay đổi được cả lịch sử.

    - Không có gì. Bây giờ chúng ta cứ ở đây, xem mưa gió trong thị trường chứng khoán mà thôi.
    Triệu Quốc Đống xua tay nói:
    - Nghỉ đi. Đức Sơn, Trường Xuyên, anh chỉ hy vọng hai thằng học nhiều hơn, bỏ nhiều thời gian mà học, học những thứ có thể học.

    Đức Sơn và Trường Xuyên thấy tâm trạng ông anh không tốt nên chỉ lặng lẽ ra ngoài.

    - Trường Xuyên, mày nói anh cả hôm nay sao vậy? Sáng không phải vẫn tốt sao?
    Đức Sơn gãi đầu nói.

    - Không biết, chúng ta không làm gì sai mà, nhưng anh hình như có vẻ không hài lòng.
    Trường Xuyên cũng không rõ.
