I read this book in the 8th grade. This is one of the best books i have ever read. The message is so powerful and it makes you relize just how prejudice this country really can be. If you have to read it for school just accept it and go with the flow. I plan to read it again this summer. Harper Lee is one of the best authors i know of. PROPS TO YOU if you have read or want to read this book. The ending is sad but expected to some but the movie is relly good if you read the book first.
This book has an awesome storyline! And I really enjoy this classic because it had many hidden meanings and symbols. It is a delighful betrayel of the post-depression south.
This is an excellent book to read and read about prejudice. " He is real nice" said Scout. 'Most people are" said Atticus. This excerpt explains that prejudice is wrong because if you assume a person is bad and you judge before you actually know about the person. The book is excellent (except for some vulgar terms here and there). I would still recomend it. SPREAD THE WORD!!!
Thought the book was good, well the cliff notes are even better. The alternate ending was a fascinating feature that made these notes worth reading
to kill a mockingbird is a great american novel which should be read by everyone. the way it captures the true nature of southern states during the 1930's. this is a book for the whole family. it should be enjoyed, loved, and cherished for generations.
