    The Secret Life of Bees por Sue Monk Kidd (Caramellunacy, rosylibrarian)
    Caramellunacy: Both stories are about a young girl in the South coming to terms with racism. Secret Life of Bees features an teenaged protagonist whereas To Kill a Mockingbird's Scout is quite a bit younger, but I thought there were themes that resonated between the two.… (mais)

    Cold Sassy Tree por Olive Ann Burns (bnbookgirl)
  9. 80
    Other Voices, Other Rooms por Truman Capote (Othemts)

    Goodnight Mister Tom por Michelle Magorian (eclt83)

Believe it or not, this was my first time reading To Kill a Mockingbird. I’ve never watched any adaptations of it, and I didn’t know the story.

The story is set in Alabama in the 1930’s, and it was published in 1960. We read from the perspective of Jean Louise (Scout) Finch, remembering her life as young girl. Her story starts when she’s almost 6 years old and I think she’s 9 or 10 by the end. The bulk of the story focuses on Scout’s experiences growing up and gives a strong feel for the setting and culture she lived in. It’s told with a lot of pointed humor as we see people’s behavior through the eyes of a child. Meanwhile, there are bigger issues going on that she isn’t directly involved in and doesn’t fully understand, but they have an impact on her as she tries in her own way to reason out what’s right and wrong and why people behave the way they do.

This was a great, readable story and I can understand why it’s such a beloved classic. As is common with classics, there’s maybe a little too much blatant foreshadowing for my tastes. It’s easy to guess what’s going to happen, but it was told well enough that I didn’t mind too much and I still didn’t know exactly how things would happen. There is a strong anti-racism message, as well as a more general message about treating everybody fairly and with dignity, and not assuming the worst about somebody just because they’re different from you. The most obvious and poignant message was about Tom Robinson of course, but there was a similar message in the form of Arthur (“Boo”) Radley. Two mockingbirds, one killed, one not, both suffering because of the ignorance and prejudice of people who knew nothing of substance about them yet thought they knew all they needed to know. I imagine things would have turned out differently if Tom’s and Arthur’s skin colors had been reversed, but then the Radley’s wouldn’t have lived so close to the Finch’s so the story wouldn’t have worked.

I really liked Atticus, the father. He was the model of what I imagine a great father would be like. I was less fond of Jem, Scout’s brother, mostly because his behavior seemed so erratic and hot-headed. I know he was a pre-teen boy struggling to understand and deal with all the issues surrounding him while also having to watch out for a little sister, and I’m sure he also had conflicting influences that we didn’t really see since we weren’t in his head. I just never developed much sympathy for him. I did of course like Scout a lot. We were in her head, so she was easy to understand and sympathize with, and her commentary on things made me laugh. ( )

To Kill a Mockingbird is about two children named Scout and Jem being innocent children who aren't aware of evil, prejudice, and hatred that they will encounter as they grow up into adults. Not only is this something that will keep the students engaged due to its plot but also can be used in the classroom to teach students about the past. It can help emphasize and put into perspective what life was like growing up in those times. ( )

This Pulitzer winning novel is a classic in American literature told through the lens of six year-old Jean Louise Finch. Her father, Atticus Finch, is appointed to defend Tom Robinson, a black man who has been accused of raping a white women. This story is generally recommended for middle and high school students and presents a wonderful opportunity for them to explore the presence of racism and stereotypes present and how they impact unfair issuance of justice in the court system.

I'm very late to game for my first time reading this, and I sort of expected to be disappointed, but I was not. This is a really lovely book. I feel like it'll have been reviewed to death by writers better than me, so I'll just say that Sissy Spacek's narration was also lovely, and whether you want to read this on the page or listen to the audiobook, you can't go wrong either way.

I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve read your book. That’s the great thing about an amazing novel, you can read it over and over and get something new out of it. Also, there is a competition right now until the end of May with a theme Werewolf on the NovelStar app, I hope you can consider joining. If you have more stories like this, you can also publish them there just email the editors hardy@novelstar.top, joye@novelstar.top lena@novelstar.top.

Mockingbird is not necessarily as widely admired among scholars of US literature as it is among its fans. I once enraged an audience of very nice book-lovers at the Cheltenham literary festival by suggesting that Mockingbird was just the teensiest bit overrated. There are many reasons for this assessment, not least the feeling that Atticus Finch’s famous moral rectitude is, in point of fact, disturbingly flexible. He tells Scout: “Before I can live with other folks, I’ve got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.” That’s all well and good, and a fine American sentiment that goes at least back to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. But part of Mark Twain’s radical move in that novel is to make his hero an illiterate backwoods boy; Lee’s hero is a virtuous, middle-class white man, full of noblesse oblige to the black people he defends (who revere him for it), but who doesn’t bat an eyelid at the common knowledge that the illiterate, white-trash Mayella Ewell is regularly raped and beaten by her father.

Its sentiments and moral grandeur are as unimpeachable as the character of its hero, Atticus. ... It's time to stop pretending that "To Kill a Mockingbird" is some kind of timeless classic that ranks with the great works of American literature. Its bloodless liberal humanism is sadly dated, as pristinely preserved in its pages as the dinosaur DNA in "Jurassic Park."

A book that we thought instructed us about the world tells us, instead, about the limitations of Jim Crow liberalism in Maycomb, Alabama.
adicionada por LT_Ammar | editarThe New Yorker, Malcolm Gladwell
 
There are some improbable and sentimental moments in the story, but there are also great moments of laughter that belong to memory and a novelist's hand... Miss Lee's original characters are people to cherish in this winning first novel by a fresh writer with something significant to say, South and North.

Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.
People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.
They're certainly entitled to think that, and they're entitled to full respect for their opinions, but before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.
Not from, but about To Kill a Mockingbird, with apologies:

Monroeville, Alabama
January, 1966

Editor, The News Leader:

Recently I have received echoes down this way of the Hanover County School Board’s activities, and what I’ve heard makes me wonder if any of its members can read.

Surely it is plain to the simplest intelligence that “To Kill a Mockingbird” spells out in words of seldom more than two syllables a code of honor and conduct, Christian in its ethic, that is the heritage of all Southerners. To hear that the novel is “immoral” has made me count the years between now and 1984, for I have yet to come across a better example of doublethink.

I feel, however, that the problem is one of illiteracy, not Marxism. Therefore I enclose a small contribution to the Beadle Bumble Fund that I hope will be used to enroll the Hanover County School Board in any first grade of its choice.
