How does Harper Lee make the end of the book exciting and satisfying Harper Lee makes the ending of To Kill A Mockingbird exciting and satisfying by building up tension and resolving key parts to the story in some way or another It is really chapter twenty-eight that makes the end of the book exciting It is in this chapter that Scout and Jem are attacked when walking home from Maycombe Countys Pageant I think that the first feelings of tension and excitement in this chapter are felt when Scout and Jem turn to return to the auditorium to fetch Scouts shoes that she has left behind the stage It just happens to be at this exact moment that the auditorium lights go off which seems to be rather mysterious But as we turned around the auditorium lights went off When the lights go off we feel that the pair are alone and we wonder quite why this event has happened and what may proceed it It starts us thinking The tension begins to mount when Jem stops and tells Scout to be quiet so that he can listen He does this a number of times and we begin to wonder what it is that he can hear Thought I heard something he said Stop a minute The darkness also plays a role in building the excitement and tension here as Jem and Scout cannot see anything We are guided by what they can hear rather than by a description of what they can see so we have to concentrate a lot more to try and work out what is happening When the pair believe the noise they can hear is Cecil Jacobs they call out to him Ill get him said Jem He-y Hay-e-hay-e answered the school- house wall There is no reply but from the echo of the school-house wall which once again gives the feeling of being alone
