Summary / Annotation
Loved it submitted by leehannah on July 13, 2013, 8:58am I think this book is definitely something everybody should read some point in their life. It was amazing, and I think it really changed the way I looked at certain people and things.
To Kill A Mockingbird submitted by jangmikyoung on July 13, 2013, 8:58am To Kill A Mockingbird has clearly changed my perspective and the way I look at things and people. It has changed my view and I think it could change yours too.
Amazing! submitted by pbapat on July 16, 2013, 6:02pm A must-read!
educational submitted by Bookbird on August 26, 2013, 2:20pm a really good book that yields lots of material for essays.
Very Important submitted by jtseng232 on June 16, 2014, 4:47pm This book is a critical piece of fiction in our history. It shows us an important part of history. The trial of Tom Robinson is just one of many different trials like it, and it shows how much racism has affected our country.
good on so many levels

I read this when I was too young (under age 10) to understand it, because my older sister left the book sitting on a table in the house. The boys' 5th & 6th grade teacher uses this book as a read-aloud. My oldest son had to read this again in 9th grade at Pioneer. And this year, the youngest one read it as a 5th grader in (an adult-led) book club. After helping him keep on track with some of his weekly readings, I decided to read it again myself - and began to wonder if I'd ever really read the entire book! Perhaps I gave up back in the 3rd grade and only saw the movie. So much I didn't remember: Jem reading to Mrs Dubose; Scout serving cookies to the ladies' missionary society social hour, etc.
So now I am left to wonder what is the best time to read the book. How much really sinks in when you are 10 and 11, even with an adult helping you pull out important themes? What do you get from it as a high schooler? [That son is now in 10th grade, and had to do a mock trial for this year's English class. He chose Atticus Finch as their lawyer's name, because 'he's the best lawyer ever' or something along those lines.] Perhaps the best solution is to read it multiple times at many ages, viewing it through the lenses of your own different experiences.

Everybody in my high school reads it. Don't bother with the sequel. Great book.
Classic submitted by carina sanborn on June 16, 2017, 2:08pm I don't usually read books like this one, but I really enjoyed it!
Fantastic submitted by hahahame on July 24, 2017, 8:03pm Great book with a great story and lesson
Classic submitted by Jhopson on August 22, 2017, 10:31am One of those books you are "supposed to" read and for good reason. A classic with insight to a conflicted time in American history.
An important read.

I wish this book didn’t remain as significant or relevant as it is. But since it has, I’m heartened by how much can be conveyed through a six-year-old’s eyes, and impressed that Harper Lee could handle such topics (possible autism, heroin addiction, racism, allegations of rape, wrongful death, manslaughter, rumors, hypocrisy, educational conflict) while remaining more or less warm in tone.
I’m increasingly curious as to how Atticus Finch became so singular in his attitudes, and hopeful for a future where more people are as empathetic and consistent in principle as he is.
read over and over again submitted by halliejewell on August 21, 2018, 2:01pm this is a classic that you'll read in high school english class, again in college and then again and again throughout life and always learn more about yourself and society.
Loved it! submitted by cmarie2004 on August 24, 2018, 10:19am A great story. I'd read again.
Classic submitted by c_zhang on June 27, 2019, 11:06pm A must-read for a reason. Powerful and honest writing.
Good book submitted by jasonc1177 on July 31, 2019, 8:01pm Great author and amazing book!（
Absolutely Great submitted by suttonp on July 18, 2020, 4:44pm This is my #1 book of all time. I re-read it every few years and learn something new about people every time. Beautiful, magical and brilliant in its simplicity.
I'm still not sure why we read this in high school! submitted by avandeusen on July 17, 2021, 12:46pm This book just doesn't click for me. The characters do not act in intuitive ways.
