Book Review for: To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird bird was a very brave novel. The author beautifully portrayed how discriminatory the world actually was in the 1930’s. And to dare to write such a brave novel in the 1960’s was indeed a courageous step. This book was banned at some states and schools in the U.S. I consider the reason behind it to be the forthright truths of the everyday discrimination people faced back in those days that was written all clearly in this book.
This book is perfect for the ones who love thinking. You’ll still find this book interesting even if you don’t put too much thought into it, but if you do you’ll find it meaningful too.
This book has touched my heart in such unique ways that I’d honestly never be able to describe. I’d definitely give it a 5/5 stars.
This story is told through the eyes of a child named Scout Finch, you learn about her father Atticus Finch, an attorney who hopelessly strives to prove the innocence of a black man unjustly accused of rape; and about Boo Radley, a mysterious neighbor who never comes out of his house. Which makes Scout, Jem and Dill, another neighbor's nephew, to start an obsessive — and sometimes risky — quest to lure Boo outside.
My most favorite quote from this novel: “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”
― Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
