The intro may be confusing, but it is interesting already. Just need to get past the first few pages. I am not yet done but this book has peaked my interest in our class's novel study, and explores the topics of empathy and prejudice. Keep in mind it is written in the 1960s but is set in the 1930s.

A fantastic book examining the injustice of racial prejudice in the South through the simplistic eyes of children. One of my favorite books.

An excellent book. No wonder it's so well known. A novel about growing up in the south and the prejudices that people have and people learn. There are so many observations of society made by the young protagonist would be impossible to mention them here. Well crafted with strong characterizations. A book everyone should read.

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.
