    This book is just so incredible. I remember finishing it at age 14, and asking my Mom to take me to the library. I dramatically told the librarian "I want to read EVERYTHING that Harper Lee ever wrote!" She responded . . . "You already did." That's been over 40 years, and I still remember how devastated I felt. My favorite line from the book was (and I paraphrase):Harper Lee tells us how, on a dare, Scout is about to run up to Boo Radley's house and touch the porch. She is understandably scared, [...]

    Harper Lee's moving and powerful novel deserves to remain as one of the most important 20th Centurary Classics. The moral story of a young girl named Scout and her understanding of the world she lives in, attacks the predudices of adulthood and the ignorance of man. The novel is centred on the issue of racism and the interaction of man with man. Exploring this theme, Harper views the world through the unpredudiced eyes of Scout and we watch as her views are shaped by those around her.The novel i [...]

    There is only a short-numbered of titles I would pick up again after finishing from my bookcase, and this was one of them. Atticus, you are my favorite book character, you had me cheering you on during the trial *again* even when I knew the ending, and that is what a great writer does, they make you feel and think. I am not here thinking "oh, what a nice book. Done," they make you lay awake at night and wonder about what made the ending so special, and if you could change it, which is why I refu [...]

    I haven't read this book for a long time and just re-read it because I'm teaching it right now. This book is really incredible and I have a much greater appreciation of this book now that I'm a father and have been in the world a bit. I was surprised when AFI named Atticus the #1 hero of all time, but not because he didn't deserve (he does) but that "the world" would recognize what a true hero looks like (non-violent, putting others above yourself, etc). Hopefully I can help my students see this [...]

    I've really just never felt that this book warrants the status it receives. It's okay, and the values espoused are certainly noble, but the story itself is just kind of boring. I know I am in the minority with this opinion, so perhaps there is some greatness that is lost on me.

    Just a place holder. Listened for a 3rd time to the Sissy Spacek audio, which is phenomenal. (I've also read the print version three times.) Got to figure out how to denote multiple readings of a title

    To Kill a Mocking bird is a really fascinating book about justice in the courtroom and racism. It is set in a small town located in Alabama. A young girl named Scout is playing in her front garden with her older brother Jem, when she meets a boy named Dill, which whom they become friends with. Dill is a small boy, and only stays in Scout's town with his aunty, who is pretty judgmental. The kids play a series of games which involves another neighbor who was accused of stabbing his father with a p [...]

    This adaptation will be staged by one of our local theaters early next year, and I'm co-designing props for it. So, I thought I'd check out the script for research purposes. I'm also re-reading the novel (I read it in grade school). I believe another theater did this particular adaptation a few years ago as well. It's a good adaptation of this classic novel. Sergel gets the important elements in while keeping the play at a manageable length. True, much has been cut; there's no schoolroom scenes, [...]

    Ini karya yg sopan sekali. yah, ini sopan sekali. Ditulis bahkan sebelum ortuku lahir. dan ini memeng pantas mendapat Pulitzer. Well, walaupun ada bagian2 tertentu yg tdk ku mengerti (mungkin karena aku kurang paham budaya mereka, atau mungkin jg krna setingnya jaman 'bahula') tapi aku cukup yakin ini aman dibaca bahkan oleh anak SD. Well. bagian favoritku adalah saat Bibi Alexandra mengajarkan pada keponakannya bahwa tidak boleh memanggil ayah mereka hanya dg namanya saja (jaman sekarang itu su [...]

    I like this adaptation of the novel a lot. It’s streamlined, it has all the main themes, but doesn’t get sidelined by characters and things that can detract from the primary story. It has all the beauty, grace and simplicity of Harper Lee’s novel.This review of both plays based on Harper Lee's novel. Are there any other reviews here of the play, either of them? For Sergel adapted it twice, once in 1970 and once in 1998. These two plays are identical, except a grown up Jean Louise does the [...]

    This book talks about the segregation between the Blacks and Whites. It informs us how the Blacks didn't have as much rights and freedoms as the Whites. For example, there's a part in the book when a White woman(Mayella) told a Black man(Tom Robinson) to kiss her. But he was not willing to, then Mayella forced him to. The Mayella's father saw it and called the polices. The polices only believed in Mayella and her father but not the Robinson. They sent Robinson to jail I felt sad for Robinson. He [...]

    A solid adaptation of Harper Lee's novel, which does a good job of streamlining the action & staying true to the themes & story. It should be no surprise how powerful this play is, given the rich source material. My biggest issue with this play comes not from the dialogue or story, but from the fact that Sergel felt the need to include parentheticals before the majority of the lines, instructing the actor on how to say them. The emotion is already there in the lines; the inclusion of so [...]

    Amazing book! The beginning of the book is very entertainig as it talks about the free spirites of two kids. Itgets much interesting as they grow up, start to change and see things in different ways. The main thing in this book is the fight thatkes their dad for ablack manwho was accused for rape, something he didn’t do. Aticus fights for his right but the whole city judges him for protecting a black man. Yet he doesn’t give up.It is incredible as it shows determination for living the life d [...]

    I absolutely loved reading this play! The story was so powerful and I do not believe that the fact that it is a play rather than a novel detracted from the story whatsoever. This was a very strong adaptation, there was still a lot of detail and it was very fast-paced, though not so fast that you had no idea what was going on. I believe that this is an important story for people to read, one that opens the door to how terrible racism really is and the results that it can have. There is some stron [...]

    I just reread this with my Mom and we both LOVED it. In fact, we just rented the video starring Gregory Peck, and loved that too. It's the book's 50th Anniversary this year, and it's amazing what an impact it has had in our culture and in individual people's lives. I can see now why it's so celebratedmething I didn't quite understand when I had to read it in high school. Our perspectives sure change once we get a bit of experience and age! I think it was very revolutionary for it's time. I was g [...]

    I had to read this as a requirement for class one year in high school and I absolutely fell in love with the story. The message from the book has always stuck with me since!"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do. ~To Kill a Mockingbird, Chapter 11, spoken by the character At [...]

    The book overall is a really good book. The suspense builds up a lot in some spots in the book and sometimes the story can be really comedic. If you have not read this book it is a must. This is one of the best books that I've read in a few years. If you have not seen the movie you should watch that after reading the book. (It would be best to read the book before watching the movie but both are great.) Just an amazing book and you must atleast read the first chapter. You will get hooked to this [...]

    This is possibly my favorite book of all time--I have read it every year since the 7th grade. Lee's style is so simple and apropriate for the story she weaves. The characters are dynamic; even after reading it so much, they still manage to invoke in me anger, awe, sympathy, empathy, indignance. My love for Atticus never dies! It seems too simple for me to call it merely a coming of age tale--TKAMB is a brilliant social criticism.

    This is a good adaptation of Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird. The play captures the major elements of the book and moves the story along with a good pace.With any adaptation you lose characters and this happens here. While diehards of the book will lament the loss of some of these characters it really does not distract from the main story. Sergel does do the book justice and the play works well

    Took me a while to finally read this classic. Can see the timeless study of people, societies, communities and value system woven so well together in this short, yet poignant tale. I didnt read it in high school and am sort of glad for it, cuz i don't think i would get it the way i get it now. Do kids really get the subtext and statements of the human condition and what is what? Movie is supposed to be good, too.

    A little messy -- there's a whole lot of book to fit into a two hour play. There are a couple too many many plots trying to fit into one, and it doesn't QUITE all fit cleanly and neatly. The use of Miss Maudie as a narrator helps a lot, but can't make all of the ideas fit neatly together in the short time frame the play has to work with. As such, much of the play seems rushed and the resolution feels very awkward and unsatisfying.

    I know I read this book in high school but since I don't remember at all what it was about, I read it again. I'm glad I did. After recently reading The Help, which is also about racism and segregation, and then this, the inhumanity and brutality of it all were doubly absorbed. I like a book that moves me and touches me in such a way. And what a neat dad Atticus was to his two kids. Unconventional but effective. Loving yet firm. Respectful and respected.

    I read this book the first time when I was a junior in high school. I think I appreciated it much more this time. I was surprised by how much of the story (not the major theme, of course, but the little subplots) I had forgotten - guess I'm getting old! To me it was easy to see why this is an American classic. It does not seem to be dated, despite being written about Depression-era Alabama, and even though it was written fifty years ago its messages still resonated with me.

    One of the best books I had ever read. 2004 was the first time I read this book. It could be perfection. Harper Lee paints a world I can see vividly in my mind's eye. I know what Scout's street looks like and how foreboding Boo Radley's house would seem. This is another piece of literature best revisited throughout one's life. You can learn something different each time. I have never seen the movie. All I can say is thank you Miss Lee, perfection!

    2.5 stars. This is the stage adaptation by Christopher Sergel of Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, not Lee's novel. I suspect that most of the reviewers of this play intended to review the novel.It's a clunky script, with a few glaring problems and many moments that could easily have been more deftly handled. Nonetheless, the essence of the story is there and the characters retain their complexity.

    I had not read this book in ages but it is the "Big Read" this month so our bookclub chose it. I am so glad I read this! What an amazing book. It is all told from the viewpoint of "Scout," a tomboy, between the ages of seven and nine. It is mostly about overcoming prejudices in the south in the 30s, but touches on so many other subjects also. Highly thought provoking and beautifully recommended. I highly recommend this book!

    I think that this is a very good book. I would definatly recommend this book to any one who wants to read a good book. My favorite character is Atticus because he is like me. I try to send good messages and be fair. my favorite part is the when the mob comes to the jail and tries to take Tom Robinson but Atticus say that he will fight them to the end. This book is good for any one who likes history, fiction, and any thing else that goes along with this book.

    I loved loved loved it - I hadn't read it since school but I do remember it was the only book in O Level English (I'm showing my age now!!) that I liked. I just love the way the author pulls you in to the story - you get to know the characters so well and I felt as though I could feel the heat of the South. My favourite characters were Scout and Miss Maudie (I think that's her name)

    I read this book 30 years ago as a freshman in HS. I loved the book then. With all the fuss of the sequel that I've debated reading I decided to re-visit this one again. I decided to listen to the audio version when I learned that Sissy Spacek was the narrator. It was an enjoyable story to listen to.
