Opinions on To kill a mockingbird?
Highly recommended 😊
I learn something new every single time I do a re-read. Best book of the 20th century. (my opinion)
Great book and a rare great movie too…
Enjoyed reading it very much
I liked it just fine
One of the best book that I’ve ever read!!!
I try to re-read to kill a mockingbird yearly. A true modern masterpiece. The movie was excellent too.
I really liked it
It is truly a great read.
i’m currently reading it and it’s REALLY good!
Great book. Pretend the sequel doesn’t exist.
There’s a sequel ?
@Priya In a perfect world, no. Unfortunately, Go Set a Watchman was published in this one.
@Joel yikes, will pretend it doesn’t exist
It’s not a sequel anyway. I have a theory it was the rough draft to TKAM.
It is the rough draft for TKAM which is what I treat it as
Yep, a rough draft that Harper Lee would not have published, but when her sister who was her caretaker passed away, she was manipulated into having it published even though she was not cognizant enough to give appropriate consent to do so. I am not happy about it and will never read it because of that. It was never meant to be. Here’s a link with more detail if anyone is interested. It’s a very upsetting circumstance, especially for fans of TKAMB.
Needs to be read by every person in America
Reading it right now. I found the starting a bit boring.
To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the best, most important books in American literature. You will devour and love it. I have read it several times, at different stages in my life, and find something new each time. Enjoy!
My favorite book of all times.
Wonderful book, must read! Very poignant..
Very good book 🙂
I found the Watchmen book by her, no way as good though!
Go Set A Watchman… Wasn’t upto the standards set by ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’, agree..
It was an early draft of Mockingbird, Lee didn’t intend for it to be published
Yeah, got it 👍
Amazing, one of the most fabulous books of its time
amazing book <3 Please avoid reading Watchmen though....
Best book ever.
When I read it as a freshman in high school (14-15ish), I didn’t get it. I liked it enough, but there are SO many layers to it that my young self couldn’t process. I read it as an adult and cried on several occasions putting myself and my children into the character’s shoes. Everyone should read it and read it often!
Favorite book of all time
One of my faves
I like to kill a mockingbird but didn’t like the second book go set a watchman
Favorite book and movie.
My all time favorite book!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Excellent sends ya back in those days 😉
One of my all time favorites!
One of my all time favorite books! It is so POWERFUL!!
I loved it! I didn’t like the second one much though.
It’s a great read!
Loved this book.
One of my favorites 😍
It’s a classic and all, and it’s goooood – but for me it was slow moving and boring. So was her Watchman book. I stopped reading a number of times and had to keep going back to it to finish. I hope I don’t get hung for this one.
I loved it, but around the middle I started to get a bit confused and it made sense in the end. I’m glad I learned it in school for me to understand it better
Zzzzzzz. Didn’t like it when we were forced to read it in high school. And redid it a few months ago and still not a fan.
I loved To Kill a Mockingbird.I also loved Go Set a Watchman, but I went into that book knowing what it was, which many people didn’t.Watchman should be taken in context, and the publisher kind of screwed that up, initially marketing it as a sequel. What it actually is is the unedited first draft of a book that later became To Kill a Mockingbird. The publisher saw promise in it,and worked with her for a couple of years to turn it into TKaM, and for me, it was interesting to read in that context, because how often to you get to do that? I also enjoyed it as a “sequel,” as a story of a young woman coming back to her childhood home, and the disillusionment she found there. But that’s just my opinion 🙂
One of the best books I have ever read!
One of my favorites-both the book and the movie
Not a fan, but that’s maybe because I was forced to read it in junior high & I was too young for the subjects in it to really mean much to me.
I’m honestly glad that people here have such good opinions on it, because I have to read it for school next year 😂
Because I can’t stand anything I’m forced to read, I actually read this for fun in 8th grade and thoroughly enjoyed it. I’m sure I would have had a different opinion if I had waited until my 9th grade literature class when the whole class read it.
