Many books written fall flat because they're written without emotion. They fall flat, leaving a reader empty and dissatisfied. This book does nothing of the sort. To Kill A Mockingbird, authored by Harper Lee, initiated within me an upheaval of both whimsical and despondent emotions.
Scout or Jean Louise Finch, the teller of the tale, shares her life during the 1930's in an imaginary town of Macomb County, Alabama. She's a spirited child who learns the ways of life, politics and racism at an advanced rate, due to her father being an attorney. She and her brother Jem are forced to see the world as it really is, unable to dissimulate the harsh realities of the world like most children.
Because I am impartial but realistic, I can tell you, this book does the job. I see where it is a best-seller, but I do not like the book. I own it. I also own the second book, Go Set A Watchman, but I don't know if either will be read more than once. I only say this because there are books and movies that tell the truth- so viciously and forthrightly, I can't endure it more than once. It's a powerful book and that earned it three spectacles of my five spec rating.
Each character of the book are developed with a genuineness that allows them to materialize in one's mind. It was easy to enjoy the ones the reader's supposed to like and despise the contentious. The only odd person was Scout. In my opinion, she was way too advanced for her age. There were times when her thoughts and opinions were adult-like, rather than a elementary student. Either way, the book showed the destruction of innocence and freedom while sharing good hearts and the bravery in humanity. People like Link Deas and Judge Taylor are good examples of the latter. I won't tell give any spoilers, but this book is definitely worth a read; you'll appreciate it too.
I'll end this book review with an awesome quote from Jean Louise and forge my way into my next book. Have a book and great day! 📚
