For such an acclaimed classic novel, I've come to it late. I know the the reputation of the masterpiece by Harper Lee and the centrality of the character, Atticus Finch. What I hadn't realised was that it's written from the perspective of his young daughter, Jean Louise, aka 'Scout' and I think this...

“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.” I need to admit that reading this book gave me the impression of being robbed. Most Americans had the chance to read it through middle school and t...

„To Kill a Mockingbird“ von Harper Lee ist vermutlich eines der Bücher, die am häufigsten in anderen Büchern erwähnt und zitiert werden. Besonders in der Young Adult – Literatur stolperte ich immer wieder über diesen Titel. Es kam, wie es kommen musste: ich wurde neugierig. Ich wusste, dass es sich ...

It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made ...

Aw. I'm happy I reread this. I definitely didn't grasp much back when this was required reading.

I have such a fondness for stories with child protagonists that accurately portray the world from an inexperienced (or naive) point of view. There is something clearer about the child perspective that reminds you, as an adult, of what you remember things to be like when you were that age - undoubted...

Really. What can I possibly add that'll show my appreciation for this literary masterpiece? All I can say is I'm annoyed as all hell that none of my schools had this as required reading. Why? WHY?!? Ahem... Okay, I'm back. All I can say is I really enjoyed To Kill a Mockingbird. I wished I had p...

73. TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD, BY HARPER LEEActually, this one was recommended (rather non-voluntarily) to me by a creep on the internet who took offense at me wanting to spend a year reading books written by women. Unfortunately, I didn’t take note of his user name and don’t know how to get in touch wi...

Like everyone else, I read this in school, and do not recall having strong feelings about it. This year I decided to re-read it, alongside Go Set a Watchman, for the sake of having an informed opinion about both. This is such a well-known book that there’s no need for another review of it; what foll...

This was a "re-read" for me -- I first read this book in High School, remembered liking it and thought I remembered quite a bit about it, and then re-read it for book club to the rude awakening, as always, that I did not remember nearly as much about it as I thought I did.Although it still held up, ...
