Review

"Someone rare has written this very fine novel, a writer with the liveliest sense of life and the warmest, most authentic humour. A touching book; and so funny, so likeable" (Truman Capote)

" There is humour as well as tragedy in this book, besides its faint note of hope for human nature; and it is delightfully written in the now familiar Southern tradition" (Sunday Times)

"No one ever forgets this book" (Independent)

"Her book is lifted…into the rare company of those that linger in the memory..." (Bookman)

Format: Paperback
I read this book while on holiday and had a bit of trouble to begin with it... It is one of those books that is so well written and has so many insights that you really have to be paying attention whist reading (hard when travelling).

The book only really starts in earnest around about a third of the way in, so you have to be a little patient to get to the crux of the matter (admittedly I don't read blurbs so didn't know what direction the book was going to take).

However, once underway, this book is a pearl of wisdom and humanity. The story of Scout and her family is simply stunning in its scope. By adopting to tell the story from a child's point-of-view, Lee has been able to deal with profound topics about humanity and injustice in a way that is accessible, funny and highly engaging.

The standout areas for me revolved around Atticus' explanations and empathy for others. I'm trying to adjust some of my thinking in my life based on what I've read in this book. Thoughts, like the fact we can and should try to put ourselves in others peoples shoes are so well explained.

For me, this book could be thought studied as a form of philosophy; the core principles revolving around empathy and pacifism. In today's world of terrorism and Pre-emptive Wars I wish more politicians (who've probably read this book) would go back to it adopt Harper Lee's doctrine.

I am not usually one to re-read books (after all, I'll never get through all the books I still want to read in this lifetime) but I suspect that this book will become one exception. There are so many treasures, insights and nuggets of wisdom that I didn't quite capture in my first read. Highly, highly recommended.

Most people were forced to read this book at school. I am fortunate that I was not! I think this would have taken away some of the pleasure I had in reading it. I was enthralled, could not put it down and, as a result, read it in a few days - in bed, at work, etc! I was totally gutted when I finished it as I felt like I knew the characters and actually MISS them, especially Atticus. I'm dying to know what happened next! I would urge anyone to read it, it's definitely changed my life.

To see the world through the eyes of an eight-year old is fascinating, unusual, moving and enlightening. What Lee has done is produce a piece of social commentary free from adult interpreations and prejudices. The world of old-time southern America is described to us with the unspoiled logic of a child, and the tone of the book is pitch-perfect and true throughout.

Though the trial of Tom Robinson is meant to be the centerpiece, I felt a lot more emotionally involved in the people in Scout's immediate life. Jem, Dill, Aunt Alexandra, and of course, Atticus all interact with Scout in a lovely, natural way which is sometimes really sad and vulnerable and other times funny and uplifting. No doubt this book is skilfully written and immensly readable, but other books have moved me more, which I have to say came as a surprise to me. I was expecting to be blown away, and am rather disappointed that I wasn't.

I read Harper Lee's classic twenty years ago and loved everything about it. Her story of life in a small town in the Deep South, mixed with an incredible but easy going style of writing, produced one of the best loved books of all time. I passed my original copy to my niece who promised to read it. So far she hasn't picked it up, but I'm not going to push her. Sooner or later she'll discover it for herself. Meanwhile I bought a new copy and immersed myself in the life of Scout and the Finch family. It's hard to stop praising a book which in reality, shows a community with all its prejudices laid bare for the reader. I don' t think there are many communities, even nowadays, that would stand up to too much scrutiny. But there are many positive ideals and hopes to take from these pages. One of them being that life isn't always fair or just, but given time and by example, change can happen.

first can i start with...i cant believe how cheap this edition is?!
i bought my copy a while ago but i'm going to get my nieces a copy because its sooo cheap and also i'm steering them towards quality classic books and trying to drag them away from badly written vampirish books.

my nieces stay with me every summer and we start a new book each year, last summer it was 101 dalmations-dodie smith and i was going to introduce Wind in the Willows this summer but i'm going to delay Wind in the Willows for To Kill a Mockingbird after seeing the price and the fact its 50 this year.

the book itself if you havent read it is well-written, thought provoking and a rare book that makes you laugh, cry and stays with you forever.

this book sparked a different way of life in Alabama and helped people to question how they treat other human beings be they black or white. i believe everyone should read this book it teaches you something about human nature and its not even a chore, the words flow beautifully and it works so well its written in Scouts innocent voice.

i cannot rate this book highly enough but can assure you once you've read it'll be one of your 'top ten' books.
