Shoot all the Bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a Mockingbird.'

A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel - a black man charged with the rape of a white girl.

Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the thirties.

The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man's struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much...

  • A classic, must read

    I first read this novel when I was 14 years old. Maybe not being sophisticated enough I thought it was quite boring and the only scene sticking in my mind for all these years was the court scene.

    Now grown up and a lot wider read I really enjoyed the story of small town Maycomb and its inhabitants. It isnt just a story of white v black as I thought it would be, but more of how a small close knit town thinks and functions and how narrow minded they can become.

    The story is told through the eyes and ears of Scout between the ages of 5 and 9. She seemed wise beyond her years which I think was due to the fact that she was brought up by her father and brother, Jem, who was 4 years older than her.

    Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started is no reason for us not to try to win

    Atticus fought for what he knew was right even though he couldnt win. The people of Maycomb were all in the court room they knew the truth but they didnt have the courage to stand up to history.

    Atticus was a great role model for his two children. He didnt only talk the talk he walked the walk.

    The story evoked so many emotions. At times tears welled up as I read and at other times I wanted to throw the book on the floor and shout at the residents of Maycomb.

    Its simply a story you must read. Just to say youve read it. Have you ever heard the sudden gasps in a room when someone announces that they have never actually read To Kill a Mockingbird. Its just unheard of!!

    Great book and film and a must read if you've not been forced to read it at school. If you were then read it again because you want to and you'll discover what is great about it.

    As a very well-known and popular classic, I had very high expectations for this novel. I was not disappointed and was also quite surprised at how connected I felt to the book and the characters considering it was written quite a while ago. When I started reading the first page, I thought I was in for a long, boring journey (and as I was reading it for school, a journey that I had to continue), and I was very demotivated. The language was quite difficult to understand at times and I had to have a dictionary next to me to search up the terms I didn't understand. Learning new words is great though right?! On the second page, there was a witty joke, and from there on, I knew I would love the book, which I did. I would recommend this book to people who are wanting to become familiar with classic novels that they have heard referred to many times and can't join in the conversation!
