To Kill a Mockingbird

I managed to avoid reading this book while I was at school!  Why...  I can only confess that I did little reading at school.  What a shame.  I actually got extremely engrossed in the lives of this family.  I struggled to put it down.  I could have easily been one of the residents in the street. 
It is story of family. 
It is a story of the real struggles with racism. 
It is a story of friendship, love and hatred. 
It tells of the importance of not judging people we don't know (or haven't even seen). 
This is one of those books that I will always remember.  It was so easy to become apart of the town.  I shared the frustrations and joys of the characters.  It was really good to sit down and read a story that was so vivid. 
This is a book that I wont recommend an age for.  It is totally up to the maturity of the individual and judgement to this is not mine to make. 

This was available from: Book depository, Fishpond, Whitcoulls and Amazon


  1. I feel like a fraud because I haven't read this book either. (Seeing the movie doesn't really count). I really must sort out this hole in my education. All I know is that it must be good because so many people want to ban it!

  2. If you get a chance its worth the read. I have only seen a handful of movies after reading a book and the book has always been by far superior. I haven't seen this movie but I have it on my want to watch list I hear it's good too
