To Kill A Mockingbird is a pertinent, striking and controversial novel that will tug on your heart strings and leave you breathless.   Harper Lee's characters are believable and relevant.  Her heroes are everyday folks in a small town with as many hangups and opinions as heartaches and good intentions.   An excellent read for most any age.

Dry, and so politically obvious. No true depth; it just follows social trends.

It's been a long time since i've read it but I did like it. I even liked the movie.

this book is a must read for everyone, seriously. i not only had to read it but know it inside out back in high school as it was on a list of literature books we were to be tested on come external exam time. it deals with some issues which were serious and relevant then as they are today. racism and rape among them and how different individuals seek to deal with them. there is a lot to be learned from this book which can be applied to current everyday life.

There are so many layers to this book. It can be enjoyed over and over again by readers of all ages.

This is such a wonderfully balanced piece. No matter what age you are you can pick up on its many layers. Each time you read it you'll notice something deeper than the last time.

A true American classic. There's no other term for it

Though long winded as so many classics tend to be today, "To Kill a Mockingbird," tackled pressing issues with clarity and firmness.

Absolutely deserves a place in the American cannon.

It is difficult to say too much about this book. It is my favorite piece of literature. I have read upwards of 10,000 books and still have not found another that lives up to the literary genius in this one.

One of the first "classics" I ever read, and loved it. As a "Yankee" bred child it really opened my eyes.
Quick Tip by . July 08, 2010
Of late this book has endured criticism as less than deserving of its status in the canon. It is important to remember this book's intended audience. With that in mind, it is truly remarkable.

An all time national favorite. A great look back in time of the law and racism.
Quick Tip by . July 06, 2010
I have read this book multiple times, and it is one of the greatest stories of all time. Scout is the greatest character. I loved the book and the movie is great as well.
Quick Tip by . July 06, 2010
There have been many retelling of this book, many copy cat writers. And frankly I like them better. I just don't like Harper Lee's style too much. The story itself is gripping and amazing. The narration just isn't for me.

This book is fantastic. It just is.

Tale of respect and discovery by a family in the American south
