Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.
To Kill a Mockingbird
Miss Maudie Atkinson to Scout, Chapter 10.
I read “To Kill A Mockingbird” couple days ago. I know, I know, It’s kind of late. But it’s a kind of Book of a Lifetime, no? Better than never.
The first pages of this book leave me clueless, thinking where does Mrs. Harper Lee is trying to lead me? The second chapter defines it all. One endless scene at the first chapter has the answer at the second one. So dont be too early closing your book, peeps.
It’s actually a novel about racial prejudice, taking set at 1940s at american south. It was a good novel. Taken from an eight yo girl point of view. Sincere. Heart-touching. Humorous. Warm and strong at the same time.
It’s the one and only Novel by Harper Lee. The one that brings her straight to Pulitzer.
Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.
You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view–until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.
Atticus Finch to daughter Scout.
