I'm glad I finally read this classic. The story of poor Chinese farmer Wang Lung, and his faithful wife, O-lan and their struggles to wrest a good life from the land was told in deceptively simple language yet touched on profound and universal themes.

Before I read "To kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee I read "My Antonia" by Willa Cather and I absolutely didn't like it. So as you can imagine I was excited to read this book. I heard from family and friends that this was a good book.

After finishing this book the people who told me about it were right. To kill a Mocking bird is a good book. Some of the best parts were the trial, the ending,and the myth of Boo Radley.
The trial was between Atticus and Mr. Ewell. Atticus's is a defense attorney and he was defending a black man named Tom Robinson. He was accused of raping Mr. Ewell's daughter. Now this book was written in the times of racism. I did not expect the jury to come up with there conclusion. Next another good part was the ending. It was not at all what I expected it to be. Can't say much because it will ruin most of the book. Only thing I'm going say is someone in this book dies. Now through out this book Scout and Jem, Atticus's children, are trying to get Boo Radley to get out of the house. Their friend Dill comes up with the plans. Some of the ideas Dill comes up with are pretty funny. One time they try to give a note to Boo through a window. The window is too high up for them to reach so they use a fishing pole.

"To Kill a Mockingbird" also deals with some big issues. One issue is judgement. In ""To Kill a Mockingbird" Atticus is being critisize for how he raises his kids. He lets his daughter be a "tom boy" and let her where overalls. They think she should wear dresses and makeup. Also, he nevers punishes them by spanking or grounding. The next issue the book deals with is racism. It talks about how blacks and whites are segegated. Once again I would say more but it would give away some surprises.

This is my favorite book. I read it in the 8th grade and connected to it instantly. Harper Lee is brilliant! To address such adult topics through the eyes of a child, was amazing. It was a book before its time.

This is an excellent book to use in the classroom to demonstrate courage, education in the 1930's and racial discrimination. I had read the book many years ago but after re-reading with 9th graders I certain got a different perspective on the book. So if you have not read this book recently, I would suggest that your re-read it. As you read, compare today's trials with those in the book.
