    "Harper Lee is an amazing writer and to Kill a Mockingbird is one of the great literary works of our time. A tragic tale of prejudice and miscarriage injustice, this book is still relevant to this day. To Kill a Mockingbird is well worth the money and should be read and reread over and over again."

    "To Kill a Mockingbird is the most classic story about racial discrimination. Harper Lee set the bar as high as possible and no one has ever been able to reach it. To Kill a Mockingbird is the pinnacle of showing the racial oppression that used to be thriving in America and, in many ways, still is today."

    "This is an American staple if there ever was to be one. I dont mean to say that my purpose for reading was solely for a summer project for school, but to say I really enjoyed it through and through. One of those books you pick up when you are older and remember all of the highs and lows you experienced as a child. Unreal story and a must read of all time. "

    "There is a very good reason that To Kill a Mockingbird has become a required read for some of the elementary schools around the world. This book will always be a classic because of the way it touches sensitive subjects. Glory to this book for helping people understand racism and hope cope with it and heal instead of pretending our history did not happen."
  • Judy Myers
    Written on May 6, 2018
    "The setting for this book is the fictional town of Macomb, Alabama in the mid 1930s. The narrator of the story is Jean Louise "Scout" Finch, a 10 year old tomboy. Her father, Atticus Finch, is a lawyer who is defending a black man accused of raping a white woman. The likelihood of a black man getting a fair trial in the south in the 1930s is about 1 in a million...optimistically speaking."

    "We read To Kill a Mockingbird for the first time in 8th grade, and I returned to it later in high school. In my opinion it is definitely on the list of the best books to read before college. It teaches compassion for people, and gives a good look at American history in the Jim Crow era. Great book. "

    "I recently bought the book "To Kill a Mockingbird" to give it as a gift to a friend of mine who's really interested in Civil Rights movements. It talks about the history of a man in the deep south that had to overcome hatred and violence. Very beautifully written, I suggest this book to everyone."

    "I was born in America, but I have many more reasons than that for why I believe America is the greatest country in the world. As a result, I always am very interested in reading American Literature, and books that feature the American continent. To Kill a Mockingbird, is an iconic American story about how deep seating racism and prejudice ruled and the efforts man many took to rise above it. "
  • Keith Richards

    "I feel that this is one of those books that no one can ever say a bad thing about. Almost every student in america has been forced to read it and have been told for years that it is an amazing book. I'm not going to say it is terrible or anything like that because it has a great story line and the meaning behind the story are amazing. "

    "It is a classic book for a reason. The characters are well-developed and the storyline is powerful. It tells a tale of a dark aspect of life and really makes the reader feel what the characters are feeling. You feel like you are taken back to the 1930's."

    "I absolutely love To Kill a Mockingbird. It is a story that shows that it is not always easy to do the right thing. That sometimes you must stand against others and become unpopular. It teaches the lesson to be true to yourself in the face of controversy that you must stand up for what is right. I think we can all learn something from this book."
  • Timothy Guzman
    Written on May 15, 2018
    "Describing "To Kill a Mockingbird" as just a novel that takes place "during summer" does a great injustice to the power of this book. "To Kill a Mockingbird" is a classic of American literature, and a sobering look about intolerance in the early south, and for understanding how far we have come since the days of Jim Crow over the course of several years and seasons beyond summer."
  • Ángela Trujillo

    "To Kill a Mockingbird is one of those books that I can agree with Keith Law about reading. This recommendation unlike some others, is definitely worth reading. The book really defines a time that everyone should be aware of in our history. Only knowing and growing from our past will help progress into the future."

    "I first read this book in high school as "required reading". I found it much more enjoyable the second time around when I could appreciate it for the breathtaking and riveting story that it is. Harper Lee's writing is irresistibly compelling and she draws you in like almost no other. This book is truly gripping and should undoubtedly be on everyone's bucket list."

    "The BBC book list challenge is a huge list of 100 of the greatest books ever published, so there's a lot of competition here. However, To Kill A Mockingbird is an American classic, and a must-read for absolutely everyone. This one comes in near the top of the list, and therefore I can highly recommend it as an excellent solution."

    "I read To Kill a Mockingbird in high school and failed to appreciate it. Years later, I gave it another go, and this time I finally got it. Yes, this is a story about racism, hatred, and the best of some people in the worst of times. However, it is also a story of adventure, small towns, and kids being kids. I am so glad I gave this a second read, it is now one of my favorites."

    "This book is a staple for public school students but ends up being an enjoyable read outside of the classroom. It paints a picture of the values of culture in the American South, the roles presented on young women, the unfairness of racism and knowing to stand up for what is right even when everyone else says you're wrong."

    "To Kill A Mockingbird was one of the few high school books that stuck with me. You'll recognize the character names from popular bands and social references, and the themes that are still relevant today even though the book written in the 1960s. I love that it's still common or required reading, because we can all relate to the story and benefit from the painful lessons it teaches."

    "My daughter came home from high school with To Kill a Mockingbird and it brought back so many memories for me. I can totally understand why they are still using this book in schools. The story and writing are timeless, and honestly more important now than ever. If you haven’t read this book, or even at least seen the movie, you really need to pick this up. You’ll get lost in her stories but learn a lot about yourself, the Civil Rights movement, and just a little more about what it means to be human. I hope they keep using this book in schools until we can no longer say there is any discrimination in this world."

It didn't disappoint me, 20 years later. I couldn't put the book down, and have read it 3 times since purchasing it. I think that you connect with it differently as an adult, and it's still a great read!"

    "To kill a mockingbird is such a classic novel. It tells a tale of prejudice and shows the darker sides of human nature with the setting in the south. Racism ran high during the setting of this book. It's a hard subject but necessary subject and shows us what not to do, but also shows us the courage of someone who stood up for what is right. "

Not only are the themes of prejudice, injustice, and standing up for your beliefs still true today, they tie in with so much going on in the world. In addition, a lot of college material references this book and its themes, so having read it helps create a common background and language for students and teachers."

    "Add: One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.
