The Venice Sketchbook - Rhys Bowen - A Short Summary and Review

A Lesson Before Dying - Ernest J. Gaines - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book A Lesson Before Dying:

A lesson in a community's humanity.

My favorite Ernest J. Gaines quote from the book:

"And that's all we are, Jefferson, all of us on this earth, a piece of drifting wood, until we - each one of us, individually - decide to become something else."


Questions I pondered while reading A Lesson Before Dying:

How do we overcome stereotypes?

How do you decide who you want to be?

My thoughts about A Lesson Before Dying:

Justice isn't always blind.

It is hard to change perceptions.

People act as they are treated.
