To Kill a Mockingbird surprised me with how good it was.  To be honest, going in I thought I would hate it.  I found the beginning plot to be rather disjointed.  Most of the character were quite good, but some of them lacked depth.  Honestly, this is a rather average book.

I read this book as a class assignment, and all I have to say is f--k this "classic piece of literature" it's a racist and bigoted story written by a racist white woman. It's hardly a classic and despite "teaching prejudice" and "learning about racism" it is terrible for modern-day learning and there are so many better stories you could force students to read. Modern stories, written by people who actually understand bigotry and what it's like to be discriminated against for something like skin color and racial background. I overall despise this book.

I assumed that this book was going to be very sad so I avoided it. It does deal with a tragic destiny of an innocent man but that sort of falls behind. I really liked some of the characters, the setting was interesting, the subject discussed very important. I wanted to read more about how the family and the whole community developed

I finally got around to reading 'To kill a mockingbird' after not having been given the chance at school. I'm very glad that I have read it as it was a beautiful book, with a lot of meaning, Seeing the story from the children's eyes was a great way to explore the themes running throughout the book, and shows just how much children learn and observe from the world around them.
