"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit'em, but remember, it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."
This is a lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of the story - a black man charged with raping a white girl in the 1930s.
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 1930s.
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...

A story of love between a father and his children, predjudice, sorrow and happiness. A very fine and touching book!

Thank you!
I was recently compared to this book, or perhaps more correct would be to say I was compared to the author of this book. So now I feel an urge to read it.

I find it very difficult to write something about this book now that I've read it, but it most sertainly did not leave me indifferent. I was irritated, annoyed or angry several times during the read.
