"...fact alone will never fail to baffle me. This lady is obviously a fantastic writer as she has written one novel that has not only gone down in history as one of the best novels written about the Deep South but has been used in schools all over Britain and the U.S as an examined text. To kill a mockingbird won the Pulitzer Prize, two honorary degrees, has sold over 30,000,000 copies and various other literary and library awards. About Harper ..." Read review

The epitome of "Yessum and yonder"-isms

AdvantagesA brilliant review of the monsters which live next door, discrimination eats your pie

DisadvantagesThe detailing ramblings and rabbling of Scout sometimes makes me cough *

"...and still a few more to endure, I had to hand back this book and just realised that I’ll have to, yes, write this fresh from my head. Stimulate the neurones, come on, stimulate them “To Kill A Mockingbird” is a novel based upon the underlying themes of prejudice, discrimination and the corruption of the exploiters exploiting, well, the exploited. The black figure is predominantly the subject of oppression, ..." Read review

AdvantagesIt can teach you a lot

Disadvantagesnone

"...writing. Although I mainly refer to the novel format, its available as a play too which is where I’ve put this opinion and also as a film, I have enjoyed both the book and the film. The book was first published in 1960 and made into a film in 1962, staring Gregory Peck. In my opinion, it’s one of the few films that actually does the book justice. *~*Background to the book*~* Seventy years before the novel is set, was the Civil ..." Read review

Scout it out

AdvantagesA book that makes you think

DisadvantagesI would love to read a sequel

"...first book review, I wanted to write about a book that I absolutely adore and have read many times. I first read this book 20 years ago and I like to read it again every couple of years – I find that it’s charm never seems to diminish and each time the quality of writing impresses itself on me. It’s a book, which seems to revolve around the main characters and their feelings and their actions, in other words a people book. So ..." Read review

An Oldy But A Goodie

Advantagesa classic, plus a really good and moving book

Disadvantagesmoved me to anger!

"...of book that everyone seems to end up reading at one port or other in their lives, whether through being forced at school or just for pleasure, so there probably isn't that much point reviewing it, but I enjoyed it so why not? =) To Kill A Mockingbird. Probably the only book I've ever seen where they had to hyphenate the title to fit it all on the cover. This is the story of a deep-south American town in the early-mid twentieth century, a place ..." Read review
