To Kill A Mockingbird

Original Title: To Kill A Mockingbird

I give this book 3.5 stars out of a possible 5

‘To Kill A Mocking Bird’ by Harper Lee was set in the time where racism is high against negroes and everyone looks down on them. In the town of Maycomb, Atticus, Scouts father is a lawyer and has been given the case to defend a black man, Tom Robinson acused of rape. Atticus acepts the case and defends him in court though everyone is calling him a ‘nigger lover’ and treating his family with disrespect.

Harper Lee has written this book very cleverly from Scout’s point of view. By writing from Scouts view Harper has shown that if you look at things from a 6 year olds point of view, what you think was right is actually wrong.
