I love this book. I studied it in school and got a B on my coursework for it. I loved it so much after school I brought the book and movie. It has such a good moral to it. Anyone else a fan?

Erm can you stop spamming this thread as it's made for the book. Not for silly comments. (:

Silly rabbit, tricks are for kids.







BTW, I wouldn't call it spamming as I'm the only one responding to this thread.

I had to read this book for school and I really enjoyed it. I used to have a copy of the book but when I moved out of my mom's house most of my books got lost in the shuffle, including that one and I keep meaning to pick it up at the book store. I haven't read it in a really long time though.

I read this book after Emma mentioned it in an interview and I said I'd write a review for Watson Weekly. Once I started, I was hooked and I couldn't stop. I recently watched the movie and found it as good as the book. Gregory Peck was very charismatic, in a quiet but determined way. I was also very touched by the little girl who played Scout. That scene where the men of the town show up at night in front of the prison in order to lynch the accused, and she talks to them, in her innocent voice, not understanding what's going on, and undermining the collective, almost sheep-like, intent to kill by addressing the men separately, as individuals, therefore reminding them of their human nature was very powerful.

I find Atticus Finch such an inspirational character. He doesn't bend to social pressure, he insists on doing what he feels is right and on setting a good example.
I'm a lawyer as well, and when I think of Atticus Finch and his deep faith in justice, I know why I chose to become a lawyer.

Thanks for creating this thread.

Yeah it is one of those movies that live up to the book. It's also a classical black and white. Both capture my heart! Atticus is so inspirational.

We recently finished this book in school and I absolutely loved it. Harper Lee did an amazing job with the symbolism.

How old are you may I ask? I think it's the broader our minds are the more we understand it.

I was in top classes at school, predicted top grades everyone else in my class loved it. Bottom sets hated it. I suppose you have to be into literature to understand/like it.

I'm 14, and am in "higher classes (specifically honors, which is one step lower from the highest class which isn't available to our grade level). It's the same in my school, too.

We are either doing that or reading "Night" next. I'm looking forward to Shakespeare, though.
