I have very fond memories of this book which Iread nearly 30 years ago at school. I bought a copy then and read it several times. unfortunately my copy is long missing after several moves an have been unable to find it in local book shops. Is it still available in the Uk? I would love to re read it after so long.

I read this in school years ago and loved it, and recently got it out of the library to read again. I just finished reading it again a couple of days ago! So I don’t think I’ll be joining the book club to read it again so soon.

Dear gang:

It made a fantastic movie. A great short story. Which it started out being by the way not a book.

Some money maker came to her that there was a fortune to be made making the short story into a book.

Having read both I can say the book is too long and drawn out making the writing look long enough. Jo Rowlings has the same problem. She takes seven short stories and turns them into 7 books.

Don’t get me wrong I have read all seven books more than once. Those whine that the books are not like the movies, thank God for that. All us Potter nuts would be asleep before the first 20 minutes. I also have all of the movies, which watched a 1000 each.

Perhaps 7 will make every one happy. To kill a mocking bird was perfect was they took a short story and made it a movie. Perfect.

Make two short stories for each part of 7 and it should be bang.

Sincerely,

Horas

To Kill a mockingbird is one of the best books ever written… when you read the book it is easy to imagine JKR channeling AtticusFinch when she would write Albus Dumbledore… the two characters have very similar voices

I’ve noticed that many people love “To Kill A Mockingbird”, but I have a completely different opinion. It may be a classic piece of literature, but I found it to be a bore. But then again, it could have something to do with that fact that I had to write two essays for each chapter. Nevertheless, I didn’t find it to have a good plot. It explains alot about the society and innocence of people, but I can’t find one bit of interest in the book. I apologize for writing a comment ful of complaints. I really do. I just wanted to simply voice an opinion.

I love this book so much! It did nt bore me at all but kept me wanting so much more!

Marie, If you are so inclined, try listening to the audio book, read by Sissy Spacek. It really came alive for me. And since you don’t have to write any essays, there is nothing riding on it. Or not.

I’d never read the book for school, and in a way, I’m glad. I might not have liked it if I HAD to read it. I read it for the first time at age 39, and LOVED it.
