Well I'll be honest the audiobook for this is better, and well having now finally read this it was quite underwhelming to be honest seriously listen to the audiobook instead.

A summery for To Kill a Mockingbird:

A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel—a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with rich humor and unswerving honesty the irrationality of adult attitudes toward race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina and quiet heroism of one man's struggle for justice—but the weight of history will only tolerate so much.

I read Go Set A Watchman before going into this and both books are very, very different but considering the subject well yes it was interesting and all it was quite fun to see Scout gradually develop and no Atticus Finch isn't that great despite what fans of this book say for me it was just a 'meh' book as I'd heard it audiobook and actually getting round to reading it well frankly I was just glad that the chapters where fairly short and I was just glad once I'd finished it, yeah I kind of get what the author was trying to say during that time period but nowadays it comes off as flat.

And that's about it.
