To Kill A Mocking Bird and My Opinion

         I've read chapter one of To Kill A Mocking Bird, and the story seems to carry on a very "suspenseful" type of genre. The beginning introduces you to characters like Jem, Dill, Boo, and Radley. Boo seems to be a supernatural apparition, the kids speak about how he was seen "breathing on flowers and freezing them." He was a mystery to the kids, and they wanted to "summon" the monster.
         So far I've been extremely ecstatic to read more, it seems like an interesting book with some interesting characters that I'd love to introduce myself to, I can't wait to read more. The descriptive writing, like " had sagging shingles, and a drooping porch. The grass was too high and the paint had turned gray and dingy. Even in the long, hot summer, the doors were shut up.." (Chapter 1) with detailed explanation, flawlessly explained how the house looked. I love stories that have good explanations that allow me to imagine and create a world in my head, to me that's a phenomenal story.
         The story also included some great characters. especially the "monster" Boo, that seemed like a myth at first because of how they explained him, but eventually I learned that he was a kid as well that lived in a house with his father, I'm guessing these kids were just afraid of him for all these things that they've heard about him. In a part of the story the kids went up to the house and knocked, running away, showing a feeling of fear towards this house, or even Boo. In conclusion, the first chapter has already taken my attention and I can't wait to read and learn more. The style of notes you should take while reading a story like this might be outlines or maybe lists that can make sure you get only specific parts out of the story that you need. You have to make sure to make a summary as well and try to understand the somewhat "cryptic" writing that's introduced with these notes, the notes should help.
