    So... I don't really know what to say. I think I loved this book, but for a reason beyond my understanding, it never hooked me, and it took me AGES to finish it! Some chapters (especially at the beginning) were tedious and hard for me to get through them... but then there were some ...

    I?m not going to do my usual thing where I?d try to explain what I liked about this book. Normally, I would try to convince you why you should read it. I would speak about how important this book is and what message it could impart to its readers around the world. I would even say ...

    A short, important, and powerful classic that deserved all its fame. This will be a short review, there?s nothing else I can talk about here that hasn?t been discussed for the past 50 years and more. Racism, prejudice, rape, false accusation of rape, all of these are abhorren...

    Gosh, this is one of my new all time favorite books! It's just a shame that I will never be able to fully express how and why it affected me as much as it did. But I can try my best to at least write a few words to let you know what things I enjoyed (spoiler: I enjoyed every single wor...

    A friend of mine once commented that To Kill a Mockingbird was the most racist book he'd ever read. I agree with him. Now, I know this book is drawn from the author's true experiences, but she choose to write a novel and thus I will judge it as a novel. With it's irrevocable integra...

    This is on a short list with Moby-Dick; or, The Whale and The Old Man and the Sea for the great American novel. And this one stands apart as a novel that is also a celebration of courage, integrity, and dignity. If ever there is a lawyer who, at least once, didn?t admire and ...

    Thus it becomes crystal clear why this classic is a must for kids. Surely it stands on an even shelf with the Harry Potter series (take in mind: its a Millennial writing this review); it's ripe with conventions that can be cracked open in the classroom, where the love for literature be...

    I loved the movie and of course the book as well. My favorite is Scout, she is just one cool little kid. Scout and Jem's friend Dill is a hoot! I really hated what happened to Tom in this book, but that is the way of nasty men and people in this world. I'm glad Mr. Ewell go...

    What begins as apparently just an affectionate and humorous tale of life in an Alabama town in the 1930s, and the personalities and quirks of the people who live there, gradually evolves into an amazing and powerful read, as a young girl called Scout becomes aware of her lawyer fat...

    Giving one of the most acclaimed books of all time a 5 makes me feel all lovey-dovey. There was a time when I didn't agree with most of the established literature. But now that I've read TKaM, that issue has partially been addressed. I approached reading this book with wariness and ...

    What can I say about this amazing book that hasn?t already been said? I think The Guardian said it best? 'To Kill a Mockingbird will never stop being a good book, and it will never stop inspiring good people' The story is told from the point of view of Scout (Jean-Louise Finch),...

    I read this book a long time ago, when I was ten years old. I remembered nothing from it except thinking it was really, really good. And here I am, thirteen years later. I picked it up again because I was curious about what my reaction would be to it now. The book follows three year...

    A friend of mine once commented that To Kill a Mockingbird was the most racist book he'd ever read. I agree with him. Now, I know this book is drawn from the author's true experiences, but she choose to write a novel and thus I will judge it as a novel. With it's irrevocable integra...

    This is on a short list with Moby-Dick; or, The Whale and The Old Man and the Sea for the great American novel. And this one stands apart as a novel that is also a celebration of courage, integrity, and dignity. If ever there is a lawyer who, at least once, didn?t admire and ...

    Thus it becomes crystal clear why this classic is a must for kids. Surely it stands on an even shelf with the Harry Potter series (take in mind: its a Millennial writing this review); it's ripe with conventions that can be cracked open in the classroom, where the love for literature be...

    I loved the movie and of course the book as well. My favorite is Scout, she is just one cool little kid. Scout and Jem's friend Dill is a hoot! I really hated what happened to Tom in this book, but that is the way of nasty men and people in this world. I'm glad Mr. Ewell go...

    What begins as apparently just an affectionate and humorous tale of life in an Alabama town in the 1930s, and the personalities and quirks of the people who live there, gradually evolves into an amazing and powerful read, as a young girl called Scout becomes aware of her lawyer fat...

    Giving one of the most acclaimed books of all time a 5 makes me feel all lovey-dovey. There was a time when I didn't agree with most of the established literature. But now that I've read TKaM, that issue has partially been addressed. I approached reading this book with wariness and ...

    What can I say about this amazing book that hasn?t already been said? I think The Guardian said it best? 'To Kill a Mockingbird will never stop being a good book, and it will never stop inspiring good people' The story is told from the point of view of Scout (Jean-Louise Finch),...

    A friend of mine once commented that To Kill a Mockingbird was the most racist book he'd ever read. I agree with him. Now, I know this book is drawn from the author's true experiences, but she choose to write a novel and thus I will judge it as a novel. With it's irrevocable integra...

    This is on a short list with Moby-Dick; or, The Whale and The Old Man and the Sea for the great American novel. And this one stands apart as a novel that is also a celebration of courage, integrity, and dignity. If ever there is a lawyer who, at least once, didn?t admire and ...

    Life gives you a few things that you can count on. Death (for all), taxes (for most), and the unwavering moral character of Atticus Finch (for me). "What would Atticus do?" is not just a meme; for eleven-year-old me it became a real consideration after I feigned an illness to cut schoo...

    Alabama in U.S.A., 1935 during the crippling bleak, Great Depression, Atticus Finch a widower, struggling lawyer and ultimate believer in justice for everybody, (a gentleman, if ever there was one) is raising two small children Scout, (Jean Louise) and Jem, (Jeremy) a typical American ...

    Gosh, this is one of my new all time favorite books! It's just a shame that I will never be able to fully express how and why it affected me as much as it did. But I can try my best to at least write a few words to let you know what things I enjoyed (spoiler: I enjoyed every single wor...

    A friend of mine once commented that To Kill a Mockingbird was the most racist book he'd ever read. I agree with him. Now, I know this book is drawn from the author's true experiences, but she choose to write a novel and thus I will judge it as a novel. With it's irrevocable integra...

    I loved the movie and of course the book as well. My favorite is Scout, she is just one cool little kid. Scout and Jem's friend Dill is a hoot! I really hated what happened to Tom in this book, but that is the way of nasty men and people in this world. I'm glad Mr. Ewell go...

    Giving one of the most acclaimed books of all time a 5 makes me feel all lovey-dovey. There was a time when I didn't agree with most of the established literature. But now that I've read TKaM, that issue has partially been addressed. I approached reading this book with wariness and ...
