The BBC?s Big Read Top 21 featured some real heavyweights of the literary world. With a real shot in the arm for the reading fraternity, a number of books have come back into fashion, one of which is the Pulitzer prize winning ?To Kill A Mocking Bird?. The front cover of the paperback proclaims that over 30 million copies have been sold world-wide. This might seem a little intimidating especially when coupled with reputedly one of the finest screen adaptations of any book made with the legendary Gregory Peck in the lead role. To review a book of this magnitude, it would be remiss of me ... Read the complete review

I originally read this book when I was 16, for my GCSE set examination text. Remembering how much I enjoyed it back then, I chucked it into my latest Amazon.co.uk order so that I could read it again.

There are some strange books. Strange, not in the weird sense of the word – but strange, as in strangely fascinating. Books that make you want to be there; hovering in the background, watching. Perhaps that’s what you do when you read anyway though, if you can imagine the story well enough. But there’s some which are worse than that – they drag you in, and make you involved. Books written in the first person do that the best, which is perhaps why To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, is such a fascinating story. The thing is, there’s a problem. I read in accents.

Harper Lee’s “To Kill a Mockingbird” is a breathtaking tale, which focuses on the lives of two children living in a small community plagued by racial prejudice, class distinction and ubiquitous gossip. Despite these ominous and gloomy themes, it is actually an extremely uplifting story and has gained the accolade of being a modern classic, which it genuinely deserves.

There is an obvious value in educating youngsters in the tolerance it teaches, ... Read the complete review
