This book deals with racism, and accused rape. It is captivating. I think it may have won a pulitzer prize in 1961. This book stays up to date. This book made me cry. I liked the courtroom scenes. I also like the way it connected me  to the time period. Great Book. Great Read expecially for a student reading discussion.

To Kill A Mockingbird was a fantastic book for young adults and up. It was a life changing expirience to get to read this book. I understood how prejudice people were and how hard it was to live through your life if you were colored. I learned that all people just like Atticus should strive for justice in their life and follow in his footsteps.

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.

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.

To Kill A Mockingbird, a classic tale by Harper Lee, is one of the best books I've ever read. It is the remarkable story of three kids, brother and sister Jem and Scout, and their neighborhood friend, Dill. The trio lives in Maycomb, a tired, small old town in Southern Georgia during the 1930's. Racism is a main theme, along with growing up.

During the long summers, the kids love to play outdoors. They are bewildered by Mr. Arthur Radley, also known as Boo, who lives down the street from the children. Boo hasn't been out of his house in several years, because he got in trouble with the law as a teenager. He is now a mystery to the children, and they become obsessed with him. They do everything to try and get him to come out of his house, so they can catch a mere glimpse of him. Once the newness of Boo wears off, the children are struck by something hard-hitting.

Jem and Scout's father, Atticus, is a well-known lawyer for Maycomb County. It has been a long time since Atticus has gotten a case, for the Great Depression is in full swing during this book, and no one has the money to go to court. Then in the middle of a dry summer, he recieves a case where he is to defend a black man. Since racism is key in the South at this time, Atticus knows it will be a tough job.
I thought this book was amazing for various reasons. I loved how there were two plots to the story, but at the very end of the book, the author was able to tie them both together. Another strength of this book was how the author was able to make the story seem like it was from a child's point of view, although Scout is telling the story as an adult. This book has won several awards, including the Pulitzer Prize, and was an instant bestseller. It was also made into an Academy Award winning film.

I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone, although it has more adult themes and is mostly an adult book with an 8th grade reading level. Like I said before, this is definitely one of the best books I've ever read.

I picked this book up with relatively low expectations. I mean, it was a school assignment, and the focus of most school assignments seemed to be to bore us to the point of behaving in class. So, it was better than I expected it to be.

The writing is from the standpoint of a child and the way things are expressed and described is simply cute.It is a little bit like a Tom Sawyer from a female child's point of view. Chapter 18 (the court scene) was my favorite chapter. The message in the whole book was made clear in that one chapter.

This book is a classic and deserves being read.

To Kill a Mockingbird follows Scout through her life as a young girl in a rural Southern city where she encounters racism, friendships, and prejudice.

This book has a very special place in my heart because it addresses important (yet still prevalent) aspects of society without going overboard. There are so many different parts of this book like important themes, adventure, humor, drama, etc. This book is definitely one of my favorite books.

However, this is a very slow read in the beginning, but it gets a lot faster paced at the second half of the book. It took me three months to read the first part in seventh grade!

This book is about the Finch Family and their life with the town's rasicm. Also, the book throws in some other minor plotlines.

So, I had to read this book for English. And I have to say, i loved this book! I really enjoyed it because the book was pretty funny. When I read the book, I just wanted to keep on reading until I finished it. It may seem boring to most people, but if you give it the try, i'm pretty sure everyone would love it just like me.

I had to read this book for school one year. I really enjoyed it. I love how it is told from the point of view of an innocent little girl who doesn't know anyhting. I am from a small poor town like the one in the book so I can relate to parts of her story. I thought this was a good teaching book that everyone needs to read at least once. I recomeend it for all teachers as an assignment one day.

This wasnt neccessarily a book I'd pick up on my own at the library or bookstore, but I really liked this book for school. Its set in the south in the Great Depression era, and is very controversial. They are many plots, and a lot of them stick out in your mind. This book is ficiton, but deals with many aspects of that time, such as prejudice, racism, and rights.
