My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I never read this book during school but I’ve always heard amazing things about it. I found this book for £1 in a charity shop and it looked like it had never been read!
Initially, I found this book quite hard to get into. I did not know what was going on. But as I read more, I got more into it. The setting of America in the 1930s is not something I’ve read much about but it was very well described. I could imagine how hot and dry it was. I did find it strange how Scout and Jem called their dad by his first name.
Some of the characters are so mean and their views are just wrong! Some of the things Mrs Dubose came out with! And also it annoyed me when Scout got scolded by her teacher for being literate – what! Oooo and the Ewells, what a horrible bunch!
