5.0 out of 5 stars Scout's story

The main thread of 'To Kill A Mockingbird' is the trial of a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Get another edition
Before I start this review I want to say that I think To Kill a Mockingbird is a brilliant novel and it easily gets five stars. This review is of this book specifically. I happen to have both this edition and an older version printed in the 70s, and I'm afraid they seem to have strangely edited it. A couple of bits are cut out for no apparant reason - pages 191 and 280 -...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!,
One of the best books I have ever read. How could Michael Gove have thought it was a good idea to remove it from the school curriculum?
5.0 out of 5 stars For those who didn't appreciate it when at school,
A fantastic read. Last read this at school when I didn't appreciate it. Go on, read it properly without the demands of your teacher.

5.0 out of 5 stars To kill a Mockingbird- what an impression,
This review is from: To Kill A Mockingbird (Mass Market Paperback)
Harper Lee's classic 'To Kill A Mockingbird' is book which upon first reading captured my heart and mind forever. It is a touching book set in the deep south of America, the story surrounds the story of Atticus Finch a white lawyer who has to defend a black man in a very prejudiced world. Whilst Atticus defends Tom, many other mockingbirds are revealed. I thoroughly reccommend this book it has everything a good book should. Enjoy!
5.0 out of 5 stars Not much has changed,
Beautifully written, didn't put the book down. Glad it is on the GCSE syllabus. Hope my daughter enjoys I as much as I did.
