To Kill A Mockingbird Book Review

Author: Harper Lee

Rating: 5/5

Although it took me a while, this book is frickin worth it. I don’t think I will ever forget it.

All I knew about this book going into it was that it concerned racism, but it is so much more than that! The beginning of this novel centres around two kids and their father in the county of Maycomb, Alabama. The narrator, a young girl who by the end is still no older than 10, is so loveable and innocent, and because of this we get to see the serious themes through the eyes of a person who is a stranger to them. 

Even before we discover the seriousness of this novel, I adored the family dynamic of the Finch’s. Their father is so loving and the relationship between Scout and her brother, Jem, is relatable and raw. 

Throughout this story, I was constantly scared. Not because it was scary, at least not in the traditional sense, but because the plot was so unpredictable. These characters deserve the world and I was never sure what would happen to them!

On a serious note, as not only a white person but a person from the UK and not the middle of Alabama I’m not sure how qualified I am to be giving my opinion on this. However, I feel this novel highlights the massive importance of equality in the eyes of the law as well as everyday society. It’s terrifying how the characters of different races view each other as so separate, as if they don’t belong in the same society. It infuriates me that, even today, people aren’t equal. It’s bullshit, and there is no explanation!?

Anyway, everyone should read this book. My advice is to not judge it until you reach the 2/3s mark, when I got to that point I couldn’t put it down!

This book is just like the title says it’s about how Queen Elizabeth II got to her silver jubilee. It talks about how she learned she would be queen through the 60s and 70s, about her husband Prince Philip, and her four children. Plus there are a ton of pictures.
