To Kill a Mockingbird, June 3 2004
In this book to kill a mockingbird by Harper Lee is a very good book. It is very good literature that all students should read. It symbolizes racism and to kill a mockingbird is a sin. A mockingbird is a bird that does nothing wrong. It sings nice songs to people to enjoy. It doesnt eat your garden or anything bad it is just a bird that is for your enjoyment.
In this book Tom Robinson is a black man who is accused of raping a nineteen year old girl Mayella Ewell. This book is told by Jean Louise Finch A.K.A Scout. Her brother Jem and friend Dill run around together in the summer and try to get Boo Radley out of his house. Atticus is her dad and he is defending Tom Robinson.
There are two parts of this book. In the first part the auther explains the different characters, what they do and how they act. It gives you some backgroung about the boo kand it helped me a lot. I like how she did it because when the book started getting good i could follow along very easily. This book doesnt start getting good until the end but it is like when you read it you keep wanting to so you can find out what happens next.
I think this book is very good because it tells you a lot and the auther did a good job writing it. It was easy to follow along so it was more fun to read. I would recommend it to any buddy to read but more for the people that like history because it takes place in the 30's and it tells you what is going on then. I think it is a very good book.(But the movie isnt very good.)
