I know this book is a classic and all but I just never really got into it. Especially in the first half of the book I had to force myself to continue reading. In the second half of the book it did get a lot better with the controversy over Tom Robinson. It was interesting and sad to watch as a man was unfairly convicted of something that he was wrongly accused of doing because of the color of his skin. Although the book was very thought provoking, when I look back on it I just can't say it was a great book. Nothing really popped out at me. Even in the sad parts I just wasn't as sad as I could be. In the happy parts I wasn't as happy as I could be. It just all felt kind of bland.

To Kill a Mockingbird is a good book, but it's not really for me. It's about this tough, smart tomboyish girl named Scout. Her father Atticus is a lawyer, towards the end of the book he represents a black man named Tom Robbinson who is  innocent. He was accused of asaulting a white girl, but the truth was that the women came on to him. Scout also has a brother named Jem. What's good about this book is it's about kids growing up. What I didn't like about this book is that sometimes it's kind of boreing. It ends up being a sad story in the end because Tom Robinson is founded gulity by the jury pretty much because the jury is racist.

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.

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.

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.

I read this a while ago for English class. I have to say that It was one of the better picks by the teachers. Typical coming of age story. Although it frustrated me that you didn't really know what's going on for such a long time. Good page turner if you're not FORCED to read it.
