I was gifted a copy of this book by the author for a review. ~WaAr~
The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap is a book that I think everyone must read. Through its beautiful words and thought provoking story it imparts valuable lessons. How a piece of news regarding someone else that challenges the people’s thinking and their ideals, how it affects the people all over, even in small towns is described here. It beautifully shows how our mentality is and how we make rash judgments, weather we mean to or not, How our harsh words and comments hurt people, How people need to change and how an act of kindness affects others.
With this book I took my time reading because I didn’t want to rush it. I wanted to think through and apply what I know. This book has been the most thought provoking book that I’ve ever read so far. I would constantly ask myself while reading the book – Do I do this? Do I behave like this? Undoubtedly my favorite character has to be Gus. I found his way of thinking intriguing and I could just hope to be a little bit like him. A little bit like Mildred too, kindness is often overlooked but one always remembers the person who has been kind to them. This book has inspired me to be a better person than I am today and honestly I am in a lack for words to describe how much this book has affected me.
