Homer P. Figg
Today I am going to be talking about why I think Homer went to go find his brother, Harold instead of living with a very wealthy Quaker named, Jebediah Brewster who can provide for him the rest of his life. I hope you like my blog and if you do feel free to read this book. The name of this book is called, The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg.
First, of all you are probably wondering who is Homer, Harold, and Jebediah. Long story short, Homer gets their uncle upset so he sells Harold into the army for a bottle of whiskey. So Homer runs away from his mean uncle to tell Harold that he can leave the army before he is killed because Harold is not old enough to enlist in the war.
Once Homer runs away he stumbles upon two serial killers named Stink and Smelt who want Homer to go inside and spy on Jeremiah’s home because there have been rumors that his home is a station for runaway slaves on a journey along the Underground Railroad. If Homer doesn’t he will be killed. So Homer goes in Jeremiah’s house and is accepted. He is treated like Jeremiah’s son and is allowed to stay but Homer chooses to look for his brother instead of living in luxury. Now I will be writing about why I think he left.
I think he left because I would have rather found my brother than live alone and be rich. I mean I would be so depressed if he died knowing I could have maybe done something to keep him alive. Another reason I think he left is because he feels his brother has helped him all his life and acted as his father and now he feels like it is all he fault he is in the army. So he faces many obstacles to find him even if it means going face to face with a killer.
Well, hopefully you like my blog and thank you for reading. Even though this story is fiction I think I would’ve done the same thing he did instead of living in luxury. I think you should read this book if you like my blog and thank you for reading.
