Description

Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.' A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel - a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the

irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the thirties. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man's struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much. To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story, an anti-racist novel, a historical drama of the Great Depression and a sublime example of the Southern writing tradition."

Ultimate novel by Harper Lee. I could not put down the book until I finished it. It feels great when you read such a best-seller book. The story revolves around a young girl named Jean Louise whose nickname is “Scout”. Scout and her brother Jem are being brought up by their father Atticus , a lawyer and housekeeper named Calpumia. The story begins when Scout is 6 years old. Thet have a friend named Dill. There is Mr. Radley who always locks him in his home. The kids call Mr. Radley ugly and evil man. Then comes the trial. Scout’s father becomes a defense attorney for a black man, Tom Robinson, who is falsely accused of raping a white women. This has a big affect on Scout. During this trial she gets teased by friends as her father was helping this black man. Then Scout find that racism exists. The kids witness trial and finds that Mr. Robinson is innocent. But still Mr. Robinson is still found guilty. Mr. Robinson is shot dead. Scout is extremely disappointed at his death and realizes the injustice that exist. Later, the rape victim’s father attempts to kill Scout and Jem to take revenge from her father, but then comes Mr. Radley who save their life. While defending them, he kills a man but not caught up by police. Then Scout sees that there is justice also in this unjustified world. Very good story line. Harper Lee has beautifully described the story in words. This was the award winning book. Highly entertaining with serious notes on racism, discrimination and injustice.
