This tense, atmospheric gem of a story takes place in a southern setting that is so real I feel like I could walk out my front door and see Boo Radley hiding behind his curtains in the house on my corner. I love the sense of adventure, honor, and family love that permeates this story. The deeper issues of prejudice and true justice are always worth looking at, and seeing them through the eyes of a child makes it that much more poignant. A wonderful book that everyone should read.

I read this book a few years ago, but I loved it. I need to read it again. It's beautifully written with a powerful message and some of the most likable characters in fiction.

I love this book! It's soo great. Even though it's an older book we all can relate to it. I had to read it for school and I loved it. Especially the first part of the book. I love how great the writing is. Harper Lee really describes all of the characters. To Kill a Mocking Bird is just a great classic read.

This was a very good book but the only problem i think people might have with it is that it takes a long time to get into the really cool stuff and even though i didnt mind some people might and that is why i rated it a 4 instead of a 5

"To Kill A Mockingbird" is a book about a town called Maycomb, Alabama in the 1920's. Half of the book goes through a few years of the childhoods of brother and sister Jem and Scout. Their father is a lawyer. The conflict of the assumption that a black man raped a white woman begins at the second half. Jem and Scout's father defends the man. You see how people reacted to them when they found out he took the case and how he deals with it. Also in the book is the common "haunted house" most kids believe. A man named "Boo" Radley lives in the house and never comes out. He is assumed to be crazy and violent.

For the most part, I like this book because it reminds me of the way my grandparents talk about their childhood in Alabama. It also showed how people can be cruel when met with certain circumstances and how they deal.

I read this book as an assignment for my English class, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I expected it to be the type that has me reading the same page four times just to figure out the basic plot because I can't keep my attention on it for long enough to comprehend one sentence. I was definitely surprised!

To Kill A Mockingbird is a book about a girl, Scout, growing up in the South. It's not just a story about race relations, like so many. First and foremost, it's a story about growing up, and understanding the adult world, trying to understand why people act the way they do, and not always succeeding.

Even if it's never assigned in your English class, pick it up next time you're at the library, and you won't be disappointed!

I won't be able to give this classic story justice in a book review, but I might as well try.
Scout Finch tells us her story. Of her brother Jem, her father, Atticus. Of Boo Radley.
Tom Robinson, a Negro, accused of raping Mayella Ewell, a white woman. He doesn't stand a chance.
When Atticus takes his case things begin to get very interesting for the town of Maycomb.
In the prime of the book, Scout tells us about her childhood days. Of the first snow, of tagging along with Jem and Dill and running wild and free. But everyone grows up.
To Kill a Mockingbird is a very special classic. It holds a special place in many many readers hearts. And mine too.

I tried. It's really one of those books you just need to taste. If you don't like it, you spit it back out. But if you consume it with an open mind, you won't be dissapointed.
