To Kill A Mockingbird (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.238

Celebrating the American classic, this 50th anniversary edition of To Kill a Mockingbird lays down a seminal work centered on themes of racial and class inequalities, bringing to the fore the human spirit cloaked in courage and compassion.

Summary Of The Book

Atticus Finch lives in the fictional town of Maycomb in Alabama and as it is with the Deep South, the southern traditions of relations in race and gender are at the center of this masterpiece. His daughter, Scout is the narrator of the story and she lives with her widowed father and brother. To Kill A Mockingbird first explores the customs of the South, laying down all the quirks and foibles of the neighbors and people that Scout interacts with through her childhood days.

The story of how her brother Jem injured his arm at the elbow is what starts off Scott’s reminiscing journey. This leads them to point out that it was the Ewells who set off the entire string of events that brought about the unsavory incident. And this is what is at the heart of the novel. The narrative that is so delicately handled by Lee is insightful and intuitive.

Atticus is appointed by the court to defend a black man, Tom Robinson who has been accused of raping a white girl, Mayella. However the town doesn’t need a trial since they are steeped in prejudice against the coloured people and to them, Robinson is guilty of the crime.

However, Atticus defends Tom to the best of his ability that turns the residents of this otherwise sleepy town against him and his family members. For the most part, the townspeople engage in hurling insults at the middle-aged man, which is unacceptable to the sprightly Scout. She along with her brother and their friend, Dill manage to disperse the mob of people but the situation grows worse.

Will Tom Robinson serve time for a crime he did not commit and will Scout lose her love for the South as she had before? A poignantly simple tale of losing innocence and more to the law of society, To Kill a Mockingbird does more than just enlighten people.

Published in 1960, it won the Pulitzer Prize and became an indispensable part of American literature. It is the most widely read book dealing with the theme of race relations and has been adjudged as the “Best Novel of the 20th Century” by the Library Journal. The book was adapted into a film which won an Oscar award in 1962.

1. Those Days of innocence...2. Duped by Local Bookstore

I have written two reviews in one.
1. Review - Just completed the book. I had heard a lot about this classic. Wanted to read it, so made a quick purchase (from a local bookshop. more on that later).
It's an absolutely compelling read. The writer does a fantastic job in recreating that magic of childhood which everyone experiences - those days of innocence, of pure, uncontaminated opinions, the ignorance about the ways of the world,...Harper Lee creates magic !

The reader feels like he is living all the events in the book and simply marvels at the fact that he too was once a part of that world called 'childhood'.
About the story- It's about two children Jem and his little sister Scout and the events are described from Scout's point of view. The book spans 3 years of their lives. They are extremely scared of the the Local Boogeyman (everyone is, when we were kids)& have heard a lot of scary things about him. They, together with their friend Dill, who visits them each summer try various ways too make him come out of the house, even though they are scared of him, but fail each time. The book one concentrates on this story. In the second part, a negro is wrongly accused of rape of a white girl & makes us see the events that unfold when their father, Atticus (undoubtedly the hero of this book) takes up the case. The entire town rises against the family because the case involves racial prejudices.
Even though the setting is of Southern part of America in 1930, I had no difficulty to relate with the characters. The atmosphere from that era stood before me when I was reading.
It's definitely a must read.

2. I purchased this book from a Local bookstore where I got it at a 10% discount. I was happy with the deal, but when I opened Flipkart's site I was shocked, for here the same edition (50th was available at a 33.33% discount. Now I will always make a purchase from Flipcart.

If only I could give A BILLION STARS to this book

All superlatives seem inadequate to say anything about this book..

It's hard to imagine how a book can be any more perfect than this one. On every basis - plot, setting, characterizations - it is a smashing success. But I suppose if there is one thing that stands out over everything else in the book, it is the wonderful (and not so wonderful) people who populate its pages...

It is inconceivable that a writer who could create so many memorable characters in so few pages would have confined herself to this one novel as her lifetime output. But she did and later on I read about her that she...

It is inconceivable that a writer who could create so many memorable characters in so few pages would have confined herself to this one novel as her lifetime output. But she did and later on I read about her that she attempted writing 2 more books but eventually gave up because she was not satisfied enough with these books.. I can totally understand, its just impossible to offer something better than TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD...

You do not just read this book and put it away to forget it, you pass the book to your friends/relatives and recommend to everyone. If one had only one book to choose for eternity, To Kill a Mockingbird would be the obvious choice..

Beautiful..

It's sad that Harper Lee never wrote any other book in her life. She did help her friend in his (Capote), but I wish she'd had written more. She has a gift and it's sad that we will now never be able to read more from her (she has issues, keeps forgetting things, is very sick).

As far as the book is concerned, I have heard of its name in American shows and movies since forever. So I just HAD to read it. Now that I HAVE read it, I won't deny it. It's one of THE best pieces of work ever written.

It'll make you laugh, it'll make you think and it'll make you sad as well. You learn a lot about people through the eyes of a little girl called Scout.

Ignore those who think Gem (her older brother) and Scout are too wise for their age. What these kids learn about people and life is what matters in the end.

I wish books like these were available in our schools in India. But our education system is down the gutter for a reason. No wonder that kids these days get engineering degrees and still 'wrt lke ths' everywhere. Sigh!

If you like classics, then you will love it. If you don't , you just might start liking it.....

The quality of any art form can be judged precisely by it's longetivity. Unlike movies, great novels age very well. Good novels not so much. That alone shows how good novels like To kill a mockingbird, The catcher in the rye or The Great Gatsby are. They are the closest anyone has ever got to a p... (View complete review)
