this book was wonderful!!
for some it may be a bit hard to understand but if you can understand it, it will have a really big affect on the way you see things in life.
Personally i enjoyed it and if you start it and think its boring at least finish the first chapter because after part 2 all of the action comes ad it was a moving book.
"Shoot all the bluejays you want, but remember son it;s a sin to kill a mockingbird"
To kill a mockingbird, was a good book. The only down side was that it began very boring. We only heard about thee childhood of Jem and Scout. I felt I was getting now where, but after a long time, something finally started to happen. A black man had been accused of wraping a white girl. And ofcourse this led to court, and he was found guilty. But the father of Jem and Scout, defended him so that the trial was very long, many hours long. Before the trials usually only went on for 1 hour the most, but he made the jury and the judge, and everyone that was listening, think differently. Still this was not enough.
This book was actually very good when I think about it, I did like this book very much. And I have to say, I liked the scary ending.
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.
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.
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!
"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 think it is a very very good book, not. I think it was boring everyone thinks that in my class they think it is the worst book ever made.OK!

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.
I've heard a lot about this book so I read it and it was very good. The beginning was a little slow and mainly about the games Atticus' kids played and about the Radleys. Later on the suspense heightens when Atticus (a lawyer) gets assigned to a case where a black man attacked a white woman. He does his best to defend him though he knows what the all-white jury will decide. Atticus' fears come true when the man is sent to jail though all the evidence proved that it was the white girl's father who attacked her. The town divides over the court case and Atticus' daughter and son learn an important lesson about racism and how humans act.
