To Kill A Mockingbird
By Harper Lee
I just finished this book a few weeks ago, and went through a series of emotions.
I understood that this was a classic, but to be perfectly honest, I had no inkling as to what it was about. I was definitely in for a surprise.
The Appropriate Audience
My mom previewed this for me and approved it for my maturity, age, understanding, etc., so it is a bit difficult to say what reading group this book is appropriate for.
I would like to say mature audiences, but sometimes that can vary. It is up to the discretion of the parent/adult. For anyone under the age of possibly 16-17, I would say to ask for permission from an elder, maybe.
This book is beyond amazing. It is simple, and easy to understand; it comes from the viewpoint of a young girl, who doesn’t want to follow society’s rules for young ladies. She wants to be who she is, and stay who she is. She watches her older brother grow and change, as well as her father. She leans to love her aunt, despite their differences in opinion, and eventually grow to understand one another.
The concept of this book is not difficult to understand. In fact, it is almost too clear.
The book is mixed with mystery, involving an old worn house, the son of the inhabitant having not been seen for over fifteen years.
I believe that eventually, every one should read this book.
It is an amazing read; it is clear and concise.
My question for You: What is your favorite classic?
