Excellent! I love the movie (which I've watched several times) and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Although it is about racism, it is important for just that reason. A must-read!

I've read this with each of my children as he or she read it for the first time (and a few more times by myself). Love, love, love this!

Nostalgic and timeless book for the ages. Easy read and good enough to convey some of the historical elements of the time period.

Fairly good book, though I certainly don't see what all the excitement is about. I can see how in its day it was more of a timely social commentary.

Atticus Finch is the best father in history. The book itself is amazing and well written, invoking sympathy for black people.

This book, a one-hit-wonder from a very unproductive author, is only popular due to a fad that it is actually about civil rights: sucky book.

Great book! But it moved a bit slow in some places... Still highly recommended.

Harper Lee does a masterful job through the eyes of a young girl of trying to make sense of a society that doesn't make sense. The character of Atticus is one of literature's greats as he tackles the issue of racism in the south. Well deserving of its classification as a classic.

Adolesence has never been put into words quite like this. A witty and pleasant insight into innocence and integrity.

A very different view of the South during the depression. Attic us Finch is an inspiring character, a lawyer who defends a black man in a racist town. He inspires his own two children to open their hearts and minds.

So brilliantly warm and humorous, it deserves the appreciation it has garnered. Atticus Finch remains one of the greatest character in any piece of literature.

One of my favorite classic American novels. Racism, alcoholism, violence, poverty, child abuse, rape, all through the eyes of a young girl. To Kill A Mockingbird was loosely based off of Harper Lee's childhood, and is a must read for anyone. A lot of it's messages hold true to this day.

This was a good book, but it was not great. I really feel like it's one of those books a high school student could get away with just watching the movie rather than reading the book because there was just not much action. It seems like the author wanted to make a statement about racism, so she tried to center a story around it, but she didn't quite make it.

Throughout the book it felt as if it was all about someone who was a perfect and good versus someone who was a horrible person. There was very little character development. Perhaps the fact that I was expecting so much from this book is what made me dislike the book in the end when it did not measure up.

This is a great read that delves into sensitive issues and explores them in a funny, compelling way. Harper Lee is a true artist, and this book will remain relevant for many years to come.

I was so excited to read this book but I kept waiting for something to happen, so I persevered and still nothing. I think the movie was so good and far better than the book. If you saw the movie first with Gregory Peck the book will be a let down.

Racism, alcoholism, isolationism, fear, and violence. These are elements that children should not have to experience, but in Harper Lee's classic novel of the depression era American south these are exactly the sorts of things that Jem and Scout Finch encounter. As their father, lawyer Atticus Finch, works to defend a black man in Alabama, the children are faced with many challenges including dealing with the backlash of their father's job, the mysterious and terrifying Boo Radley, economic differences with other children, and a rabid dog. Lee approaches all of these events from Scout's point of view, and each occurrence in the novel is seen with an element of child-like wonder and confusion as she asks questions and deals with the answers. This book is solidly written and deserves the high honors and accolades it has earned over the years. Truly worthy of its classic status.

There's so much hype about this book that you literally expect fireworks to fly from the page. As this did not happen, I was a bit disappointed but it's still an amazing book.
