Bu kitap, Dick'in sonraki yüzlerinde Two-Face ile ilgili bu tür problemlerin sebebi de dahil olmak üzere Dick'in ilk yılı Robin'i anlatıyor. Ayrıca Robin ve Batman ve Dick ve Bruce arasındaki ilişkiyi ve ayrıca Alfred ve Alfred'in Bruce ve Dick'in seçimlerini kabul etme mücadelesini gösterir. Gerçekten çok iyi karakter etkileşimi olan bu kişi, bu insanların kim olduğu hakkında oldukça iyi bir fikir veriyor. Ve, Dick harika. Alfred gibi. İkinci okuduğumda daha da hoşuma gitti. "Biri ona yardım etmeli - ve benim de olabilir." <3 <3 <3

I had a mixed reaction to The Mockingbirds, but ended up mostly toward the positive side. I found Alex's experience to be very realistic, which makes sense as the author's note indicates Whitney herself experienced a date rape while she was in school, so she's clearly writing from experience and doing it well. Alex struggles with a number of emotions, ranging from guilt to doubt to anger to sadness. The act itself and the fallout of her recovery and acceptance felt very true to me. Those passages left a knot in my stomach and tears in my eyes. On the other side, I had a difficult time with some of the other characters in the story. Alex's friends were more or less universally supportive of her from the start, and that didn't ring quite true to me. I almost would have preferred it if at least one friend doubted or just flat-out didn't want to talk about it, at least at first. In my experience, universal and immediate support of a rape victim sadly isn't the case, even among their own friends and loved ones. It should be, but it isn't. So I had a little trouble with that. I also found the reiteration of what constitutes rape to be a little heavy handed, but I am absolutely willing to let that slide, as this is an issue novel and reiterating that date rape happens and that it's not okay was really the point of the novel. Other than that, most of my nitpicks had to do with certain writing elements the author chose to use, but those are mainly personal preferences. Overall, I felt that this was a moving book, and while maybe not entirely realistic, it's at least realistic in its portrayal of a young woman who has been a victim of date rape and must deal with the fallout and eventual recovery that follows. Speak remains my go-to novel for a young woman dealing with acquaintance rape, but The Mockingbirds has earned a spot nearby.

Beautifully written though only one of the stories really stays with me, but it really stays with me. The one about the Russian brother's and the wedding party. Amazing.
