To Kill A Mockingbird
The story is being told in the perspective of one of the main characters name Scout. Boo Radley, the next door neighbor, is rumored to be very creepy and dangerous, but no one has seen the man in many years. Also, the two main characters dad, Atticus Finch, was helping a black man, Tom Robinson, through his trial in which he was accused of rape. The book has a decent amount of confusion in it, but once you get the idea, I think it is definitely a book for kids our age.
I would say that the book has a fair amount of action, but it is definitely not an action book. Also, it has a lot of emotion, which kind of makes it a dramatic book. The author uses a lot of detail which makes the book a lot easier to read. Harper Lee does a great job of making the detail without "spilling the beans" of what is going to happen next.
As I read the book, I learned a lot of lessons, most of which would be for kids that live in the type of area that the Finch's lived in, but I still did learn some. At some points of the book, Harper Lee would describe the scene so well that you could feel that he was either trying to make you feel sad and disappointed, or shocked and amazed. I really liked how it was in the perspective of Scout because it showed mainly her emotion to all of the story, and not just a bunch of characters emotions. I really liked the book because the last couple of chapters had something happen which was completely unsuspected and eventually made the book become extremely fascinating.
The book, To Kill A Mockingbird, is an extremely well crafted fiction novel that always keeps you in thought when you are reading it. The book has many different things occur throughout it, which make it a fascinating read. I highly recommend it to everyone.
RATING: **** 4/5
