Is never forever?

"I never saw him again" These five little words on page 278 ended Boo's part in the book and in my opinion, are the saddest five words one could hear. Of course, these words can be the happiest five little words one hears, but now we're getting off track. Now, through out all this blogging I know you have all expressed your opinions about Boo which can be described as no more than the good, the bad, and the ugly. The good being that Boo is just a nice man shut up in his house keeping away from the harsh realities of society, the bad being the fact that Boo was a pedophile, and the ugly just being that Boo was a vampire. We all had harsh judgements about Boo for a while and if you didn't than hooray for you, but I think that the main reason for Boo's character was to show us that one should not make false judgements in the case of rumors. Because you never know if one day you might depend upon them for a job or a favor or in this case your life. So I hope that you guys who think Boo stabbed Ewell, and in no circumstances am I disagreeing with you, know that Boo's heart was only filled with the goodness of saving two innocent kid's lives and not with murdering this man. So to all you people staying up late blogging or being here just for the fun of it is... What do you think Boo did when he went back inside? Even though this is being told from Scout's adult view, do you think Boo and Scout ever crossed paths later? And, what do you think Scout told Jem about Boo?

I don't think Scout ever saw Boo again. He stayed in the dark for that long I have no problem believing that Boo stayed hidden for the rest of Scout's childhood. The only Question I have is what was Boo doing out there that night?

Wow good points andie sachs. I think Scout would just tell Jem that Boo really was a kind hearted person and that he saved their lives. And stephen I actually thought that same question as to why Boo was out that did he ironically know the children were in trouble..and how did he know where they were?

Don't you think Boo had been watching the children for some time? He seemed fascinated by the kids--they lived in the world and he wanted to be a part of it some how, though he couldn't.
