To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Review by Caleyna

I read this in high school and remember really enjoying it, but reading it again recently as an adult put a whole new light on it. This has got to be one of the best books of all time.

The theme of the book, don't judge someone till you've walked around in his skin, is tightly woven in every page of this book. The dialouge, the characters, the plot. . . it is all just amazing to me.

If you only read one book that an English teacher tells you is good for you, make it this one. Even though didatic lessons are laced throughout, it never seems preachy or dry. The plot floats along without any rough spots. Can I say again that it is amazing?

I did just hear an intersting rumor that Harper Lee recieved a lot of help on this book from her childhood friend who spent almost every summer with her (a real life Dill). This person who helped her write her one and only novel is Truman Capote. Perhaps that explains a lot about why she only wrote one book, but it was a great one.
