Like I said this is something no kid should read cause it is boring as hell what was this author thinking well i have some advice from someone like me doing something interesting so someone would actually read. OK.
This book is another one that I had to read for school and I liked it so much that I read it again. The words are so vivid and the children are so funny and mischevious that it makes you wonder what they will do next. After every page you are constantly wanting to know what will happen next and its so hard to put it down. You really start to open your heart and feel for the children. The story of the trial just adds another bonus to the book, and another question that you want answered. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
I read this book for school and actually ended up really loving it. I want to buy this book. It is set in the racial times, and is centered around the trial of innocent tom Robinson againstthe word of white-trash mayella. I thnk this book should be read by everybody. the childhood experiences are so like my own?(scout and jems). it was overall a lovely read.
Scout and Jem had several problems to deal with. They were very interested in the story of thier neighbor Boo Radley (who they heard was crazy). They and thier friend dill were always trying to spy and find out more. Scout was starting school and she was having a hard time adjusting. She was allways getting into fights. Jem was finding strange things in a hole in a tree.
These were minor stories.The main plot was that Atticus was defending a black man accused of raping a white women. The whole town was into this case cause they all thought he was guilty. Also it is the early 30s. It went into school were the children were going. The father faced many things that were bad even in the middle of the case. Such as the mob going to kill the black man and the mad dog (witch has rabizes)and the father, Atticus shot the dog to save all the people. He was an intellegant and talk about all things to help all people. All the people had learned a good leason thhat year.
I read this book because it was assigned in class...and i think its one of the best books ever written in amerian literature. It beautifully and truly discusses the existance of good and evil that lies in human beings and the world. It is a novel that descibes how innocence can be stolen and completely injure and destroy someone. well if u havent read it, i suggest u do!!!! its the best...Lee is brilliant.
To Kill A Mocking Bird takes place during the three years of the Great Depression in Maycomb, Alabama. The narrator, six-year-old Scout Finch, lives with her older brother, Jem, their widowed father Atticus, a lawyer. They befriend a boy named Dill who visits his aunt for the summer. The three of them are scared to death and fascinated with their neighbor "Boo" Radley. Very few people have seen Boo.
During the next two summers, the kids finds that someone is leaving them small gifts in a hollow tree outside the Radley place.
The court appoints Atticus to defend Tom Robinson. The town doesn't like the idea that Atticus is defending a black man and causes trouble for the Finch family.
To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, is most definitely one of the most amazing books I've ever read. Though the book looks small, the book is filled with life lessons on the tensions between races and classes, your morals with your fellow man, and the basic essence of the bliss and naivety of a little girl.
The book is from the point of view of Scout, a tomboy who watches her father, Atticus, a lawyer, go through a trial that he knows he can't win. He is supporting a black man accused of raping a local white woman. Through the story, you realize the true moral courage of Atticus that can bring tears to your eyes. His opinions on the equality of people and true human courage are what make the book a fantastic read.
I advise the book to absolutely anyone because it is not hard to read and any child can understand the experiences Scout goes through as she grows up.
