Atticus- Genius in the Courtroom
When I read chapters 18-19, it really woke me up to what Atticus can do. In the beginning of the book, Atticus kind of seemed like a background character. He didn't really talk or show us what he was really capable of doing, but after reading these chapters, WOW! He really shone through in this case. His questions might seem small and petty, but they really do seem to prove a point. He really knows how to question someone and make them feel insecure. At the rate Atticus is going, do you think Tom will win this case? In my opinion, I think it will have the same results as the Scarsboro case. He may be on the verge of winning, but he will probably go crazy or kill himself. What do you think?
