Harper Lee writes an incredibly moving story of love,friendship and bravery in this literature classic.The book tells the story of brother and sister, Jem and Scout Finch. As the story unfolds through Scouts' young eyes we experience and learn what bravery is through her father Atticus as he defends a black man in the American South of the 1930's. A must read. 10/10

  GCSE Title

| | See all kategeorgearchie's reviews (30)

This is one of those books about injustice that everyone should read.

This is one of those books that questions the horrible events that man has caused.

Read it for my GCSE English 3 times and every time I enjoyed every page.

  Good book, excellent delivery

| | See all Chan15's reviews (1)

Delivery of the book was very fast and it came within 3 working days. I was very pleased with this considering i needed it to continue my work. Although the delivery and book were good, the pages fell out. The first 70 pages fell out of the book and i've had to tape them back in, even though i did not bend my book far when reading it, they still fell out. That, i was not pleased with. But overall the book was great.

  One of the all time best reads

| | See all Jpix89vamp's reviews (4)

This book has to be one of the best books i've ever read. initally i read some years back it for GSCE English - however i never usually read the books that used to set us - on this ocassion i could not put the book down, you have to read the book before watching the film, its the only waty about it. the interweaving stories about race, morality and family are drawn together beatifully the Lee. it hits you really hard on issues that we still hold true today - obviously not as extreme - but this book with throw you into the mindset of Scout Finch - who the story is narrated by, and how her and her brother deal with race and other issues as the are brought up by the fathjer Atticus, a man way beyond his time - almost revolutionary! see them grow and flourish as the story does so too!
i can guarentee you'll love it and wont be able to put it down.

  Brilliant peice of literature

| | See all FunkeeMunkee's reviews (31)

I got this book a few years ago, but i have recently finished studying it for my GCSE's and i had read a few times before that, and it is definitely one of my favourites

The plot is based around a true story, and also around Lee's own childhood. Although it takes a while to get into, it is definitely worth a read! The most important thing about this book, is it shows how over generations, peoples prejudices have been ingrained and there is a lot of hypocrisy, and it is based around the childrens struggle to break this mould. Overall, just click the buy button, after all, its five-fifty, what have you got to lose?

  Absolutely brilliant read, one that must be bought

This has to be read. The price is fantastic for such an amazing book.

From the title to the characters, it's such a thrilling storyline.
Says alot about religion and nationalities back in the day.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and found it hard to put it down.
The characters have such depth and such brilliant minds.

  Number one on books to read before you die!

This book is amazing. I read it at school for English and so went in to it with a 'too many pages to read attitude'. I was wrong. This has to be one of my favourite books, it makes you laugh and cry. But most of all it makes you think and if you haven't read it, click that buy button now.

Also if books aren't your thing the movie, with Gregory Peck, is brilliant and though slightly different it portrays the same moral emotion as the book.

  Superbly written

The reason this book has sold over 40,000,000 copies is because it is superbly written, has a great story, and is full of memorable characters. Buy it!

  best book ever

| | See all stumpy2's reviews (1)

i think this has got to be one of the best books i have ever read. Not only is this book a classic (and if you havent read it yet you should!) but i think its amazing how anyone can write a book so amazingly full of meaning and emotion when its through the eyes of a young girl.
i completely adore this book and its subtlety and clarity is spectacular; i will also personally hunt down anyone who syas anything bad about this book because it's simple amazing and a must-read for everyone!!!!
