There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
But finally I had a chance of reading this and reading after this I felt like I would give more stars than possible .
The patience is utter key in the book. The way every character progress , the way harper Lee have developed each character it's real more than fiction.
It's written from a little girl's point of view but has amazing thoughts for everyone. Even after being written so many years ago, it still has some very relevant lessons for everyone, there is something for everyone in it! Definitely one of the #mustread books.
Here are some of my favourite #quotes from the book:
"You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view... Until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it."
"People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for."
"There are just some kind of men who-who're so busy worrying about the next world they've never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results."
Worth spending time. a gentle feel-good story. Reminds the friendship which we have lost while growing up.
Great way of telling how a father can influence his child, not by advising but by setting an example.
Covers the problem of blacks in that era.
No need to talk about the book because we know it is a canon of English literature and you need to read it.
And this edition is the best one out there I've seen.
Specifically mentioning that there are two covers which is not at all usual, like really.
For me it was first book to own with two covers,
The white blossom all over the cover with this bird it looks very different, stands out and definitely if you take it out you'll get compliments.
But as always I am not satisfied with the paper quality, vintage Publishers do this almost every time, I don't know why this but the paper is so thin and light that I feel I should not turn it (just kidding but really it is not what I expect from a big Publisher)
Vintage Publishers mostly make books with gorgeous covers, so you need ti check them out.
That's it for today.
Happy reading, happy Collecting
Set in the era of 1930, the events take place in a small sleepy place named as Maycomb. The protagonist of the book is 6 years-old Jean Louise ‘Scout’ Finch. She lives with her widowed father Atticus Finch, older brother Jem Finch and her black cook Calpurnia.
Atticus is the lawyer and man of the rules; He is a calm man with great wisdom. He always tries to up bring his children in the moralized way. Due to his unbiased and dutiful behavior, he is the man who is respected by all.
Scout and Jem have a very good bond. One summer, they befriended a boy Dill, from his neighborhood and they tried to sneak peek in the supposed haunted house of Boo Radley. Many times, Scout and Jem found various small gifts in the knothole of the tree near the Radley’s house. They also created a play on Boo Radley, which was shut by Atticus telling them that try to see the life of people from another person’s point of view.
On the other side, Atticus has taken the case of Negro Tom Robinson. Those were the days when the racism was on the peak. Atticus, Scout, and Jem faced many hateful comments from the people. Tom was accused of raping a white girl, Mayella Ewell. Ewell is the infamous family in the county.
In spite of presenting sufficient evidence in defense of Tom, the white jury convicted Tom. Atticus knew what will be the result but he tried his best to save Tom. Scout and Jem have witnessed all the proceedings in court and the decision literally shook Jem.
Is this the ending of racism unsettling in Maycomb? What is the truth behind Tom’s conviction? Is Ewell happy with the court decision? Who is Boo Radley and how the kids going to meet him? Read this book to know further.
