    Description

    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.

    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 h...

    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 writte...

    Simply outstanding, beautiful

    The author of this book wrote only one novel (which is this) and went into a hermetically sealed state, with not much of publicity or interviews or public interaction. Not hard to understand why, the novel speaks for itself, it's pure genius. It has a refreshing and fresh quality about it even though it's a tale about exploitation and its sordid ways. I've read a lot, but this novel touched in ways very few novels or stories have done or can do.

    Got a photocopied book from P N Brothers

    Bought this book on Flipkart through seller P N Brothers, Delhi and what I got was not a book but a photocopy of a book. Was shocked to see it and retuned it and got a replacement. But the replacement was a photocopy too. Very disappointing and frustrating experience. Flipkart should take some action against the seller and see how they can avoid this in future.

    Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird

    I measure the 'classicness' of a book by the duration for which I remember the characters once I'm done reading the very last page.
    It doesn't seem like Scout and Jem Finch will be fading away from memory anytime soon.
    You fall in love with the young tom-boyish Scout as soon as you start reading the book.
    Her adventures with elder brother Jem will quickly bring back all those nostalgic childhood memories we share with our siblings.
    The world, through the eyes of Scout and Jem is an innocent ...
