It seems wrong to mentally hurt a minister, but then again, he did do something illegal, according to Chillingworth. He is so obsessed with hurting the minister, he can’t back away from the hobby; “The unfortunate physician, while uttering these words, lifted his hands with a look of horror, as if he had beheld some frightful shape…it was one of those moments – which sometimes occurs only at the interval of years – when a man’s moral aspect is faithfully revealed to his mind’s eye. Not improbably, he had never before viewed himself as he did now” (118).
This example of irony carries the story along, by saying how Rudy is afraid and doesn't like their chances of surviving the bomb. Irony is very effective in this book.

Another way irony is effective in this book is because it makes us stop and think about what had been said. Irony is just one thing that helps make up this book.
The realism of this book is my favorite part. The author did a very good job of making you feel like you are actually living inside of the story and watching Connor and Risa's journey. After you are done reading this story you will be baffled at the amount of thrill in it. If you like a slightly twisted, disturbing story this is the book for

Initially I was skeptical about reading this novel as I knew it would contradict Atticus Finch 's character. However, I did enjoy this book! I thought the novel presented a good message about following your own conscience rather than conforming to the opinions of others. My favorite part of the novel was after Jean Louise and Atticus’s big fight where Atticus tells Jean Louise “You may be sorry, but I’m proud of you,” (Lee 277) and after processing all of this information Jean Louise tells Atticus “I think I love you very much.”

At the end of the book he doesn’t know what his father thinks of hi anymore. And the most important one to me is Steve’s betrayal of his own feelings.

In The Lesson Before Dying, there are many instances of racial discrimination and inequality, but there are also several accounts of lessons being taught discreetly. Several main lessons that are taught in this novel is that humans cannot be dehumanized by other people from injustice, accepting your fate, and that change is imperative. For centuries, people have always judged and made their assumptions about a person just by their actions and outlooks on certain subjects. If people degrade each other's opinions, there is no way that the world can truly move on to making new inventions and expanding our knowledge of unknown entities because the public is too busy defending their opinions. It is imperative that people change their ways of making other people feel bad, especially when some are only judging by race or sexuality.
