Customer Review

on 7 April 1999
A must read book - it's often foisted on school children to read...which is a pity - because usually the books you are made to read are the ones you can't enjoy...
The book has everything...humour...tenderness..social comment..a gripping plot...it's one of those rare novels that works on different levels...it's famous for making a point about racism...but how it does it is quite brilliant..
it's the story of a brother and sister growing up in a small old fashioned community. They live with their father...and the story follows some of their childhood exploits but has this strong sub plot about a black man who is accused of raping a white girl. The childrens father is the man who defends the black man. I'm not going to spoil it for you by giving away too many details...I've recommended this book to a number of friends..all of whom have loved it.
When I first read this when I was younger...I wanted to grow up to be Atticus... Now I'm older...and about to become a father...I want my daughter to be just like Scout..
