Undoubtedly the best American classic!,
This review is from: To Kill A Mockingbird (Mass Market Paperback)
What can you possibly say to give required credit to such an astounding work of literature?
I first came across this book at school, having being assigned it as our modern literature project, and have since re-read it several times. I have to say that at first I was unsure about how much I would enjoy it, yet after just the first few pages I knew this was not just a run-of-the-mill book, and I could not put it down until I had finished it. Indeed, after 3 days I had completed it.
The story manages to cover several controversial issues, such as racism, sexism and prejudice, with such an amazing flow and honest opinion, that it is impossible not to fall in love with this book. The story is seen through the eyes of young children Scout Finch, her brother Jem, and friend Dill, as they struggle to understand the prejudice and hypocrisy of the adults around them. It is a truly original book with a very warm sense of humour you cannot fail to succumb to.
Harper Lee deserves true credit for writing such an honest novel that those who read will remember forever. Truly amazing!
