Book Review - " To Kill a Mocking Bird"

To Kill a Mockingbird To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee



My review


Put in a frame through the eyes of little 6 year old Jean Louise Finch aka Scout, the story demonstrates the racial prejudice in Maycomb county and how it depresses Scout and Jem . Their father Atticus, a lawyer who is supporting the trial of a black man - fighting the truth. The novel shows how the life of the small family is effected by the trial of Tom Robinson and how it personally effects the thinking of Scout. Harper Lee has made it so much intresting with the witty humour that one would be totally engrossed in it. The character potray is wonderfully crafted.

The best part for me in the novel was the innocent imaginations and thinking of the small children described in an amazing way. The way the children actually percieve and react to things and situations and how they learn as they grow. Harper Lee must have spend alot of time on learning about the physcology of children.

Good book to read.
