Reviews & Summaries
My parents had been telling me what a great book this was but I never got around to reading it. I didn't think it would be that interesting. I took a class on this book and I realized how great this book was. I loved all of the characters even if they weren't a huge part of the book. I thought the book was amazing and I'm really glad I got to read it.
A wonderful story about how Atticus Finch, a lawyer defends a black man accused of rape, and how other significant issues in society are expressed.
Share this one with your teens. A timeless classic
It was a really good book. I was forced to read this for english class and it turned out to be a great book. It describes racism very well and how well a young childs mind works. It has definitely made my top 10 book list, and thats saying a lot
Great book! Magnificent plot! This book also taught me a lesson. You'll just have to read it to know!
One of my all time favorites, I think this is essential reading for everyone.
better than movie
Lee masterfully wove this classic tale to be a masterpiece that would be loved forever. I found the book insightful and well written.
Sounds like a good book. I have to read it for school.
I put off reading this book for ages because I thought I knew what it was about: a southern lawyer defends a black man accused of raping a white woman. But that really only represents a small part of the plot. Would you believe the trial doesn't even begin for a hundred pages? This is a poignant, hilarious (what a surprise!), magnificently written coming of age story that really captures the beautiful (and sometimes cruel) absurdities of living in the south. Words like habiliments and scuppernongs will be with me forever.
