Description

Voted America's Best-Loved Novel in PBS's The Great American Read

Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred

One of the most cherished stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

    The first time I ever read TKAM was back in 8th grade of middle school. It’s been almost 3 years since then, and I’ve read this book three times in total. To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee takes place in a fictional town of Maycomb, Alabama during the 1930s when the Great Depression occurred and racial inequality was a huge issue. Lawyer Atticus Finch teaches his children Jem and Scout the reality to racial discrimination, proper morality, and better understandment of people. I love this book for all sorts of aspects. This book uses great diction, although it’s understandable with context clues. This helps me improve my own writing. Additionally, I admire the characters, especially Atticus. He is a prime example of a qualified human, who acknowledges flaws yet does not show any sign of prejudice towards it. This helps me with my wellbeing and puts critical thinking upon my own morality. This book contains a lot of suspense too with the children’s fabrication of Boo Radley. Overall, I admire this book and it’s no question to why it’s a classic.

    I hated this book so much. Who cares about some little kids! The trial was horrible. What does a mockingbird have to do with this book. The people aren’t even trying to kill a mockingbird!!

    Not the best book. May teach many good lessons but isn’t appealing in anyway. Extremely boring and uninteresting.

    This book is boring, especially the beginning. I usually love the books assigned to us for summer reading, but this one wasn’t interesting.
