at first i was like,"well,here we go this is going to be a long book.' But was i wrong! i love this book! Ms.Lee really took you into Maycomb County in 1930s Alabama and into Scout Finch's life. I couldnt put the book down. i loved this book and hope you do to!
The plot,characters,and the writing was the best! I love this book!
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.
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.
To Kill a Mockingbird is my favorite book out of all the books i've ever had to read for school. Usually they don't interest me, but this one did. I especially liked that it was from a girl's point of view and all the stuff with Boo Radley. There was a lot of suspense in the book.
Atticus was really cool too, especially how he trusted his kids and you could tell he really cared about people. I thought it was a good way to learn about history and things like that too.
I recommend this book for readers of any age. I think adults would like it too. My mom said there was even a movie.
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.
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.
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.
