To Kill a Mockingbird and Tales of Beedle the Bard- review

To Kill A Mockingbird To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

My review


rating: 5 of 5 stars

I remember at school when we had to choose our options for O levels, I didn’t take English Lit. I am sure this was one of the books some of my friends read in that class. I now feel that I missed out on this book for 25 years!

It was very well written from the viewpoint of the girl, life seems so simple to a child. It is a shame that we have to change our thinking as we get older and exposed to the more difficult things in life. Children use the word “why” much more than adults.

Thank goodness for the handful of adults in this story who thought differently to the others. Atticus was a great character, and a wonderful example to his children.

Thank you to Molly for recommending this book to me, I probably wouldn’t have ever read it otherwise and I would have missed a great book.

I read this in about an hour. It was okay I guess but nothing to write home about really.
