Chapters 1-5 Blog Assignment:
Was jouncing the limb a planned, conscious decision on Gene’s part or an impulsive act? Examine the dialogue and the events that occur just before and after the fall. Why might Gene have wanted to see Finny fall? How does Gene feel immediately afterward, and why might he feel this way? Why does Gene later wear Finny’s clothing? Evaluate Finny's reaction to Gene's "confession." Use details/ quotes from the novel to support your conclusions. Please feel free to include a comment about another student's post.
