Book Review To Kill a Mockingbird by: Harper Lee

 

I read this book twice in school and the second time I read it, I got an even more greater understanding out of it. I know that’s a common thing, each time you re-read a book you usually get something new out of it, but I really did.

This book, and the movie based on the book was good too, really was one of the first of its time ( published in 1960) to openly talk about the huge issue of racism, primarily against blacks, and the affect it has on people of all shades and backgrounds. Scout, the main character, narrates the story and she possesses a youthful, yet old-spirited aura about herself that makes her, and her observations of the events surrounding her, all the more interesting. This story stays with you.

Wonderful, wonderful classic.
