I’m halfway through the book right now and I really like it. In Germany it isn’t a popular book and it doesn’t fit our curriculum ver well, but it has always been a book I really wanted to read. I was surprised that it’s so easy to read and follow. I totally love Scout and think I’ll re-read it somewhen. 21 months ago
I’ve finally read “To Kill a Mockingbird.” I’ve watched the movie numerous times throughout my life, but I never got around to reading the book. What a masterpiece!! 2 years ago
Never thought a classic would be a page turner, but I’ve already read 22 pages (it’s an Ebook, so that’s 22 A4 pages). It’s good, reading this one seems to be a breeze. 5 years ago
I’m currently reading A Tale of Two Cities, and then it’s on to Great Expectations. And after that I have promised myself I will read a book that might not be in any lists of great fiction, that I am just interested in, for the heck of it. Then, I think I will read To Kill a Mockingbird.
Dickens is wiping me out right now. The plot is beginning to interest me, but it’s taken a lot of perseverance to come this far. 5 years ago
I think it was worth it from the standard of english it has. I love Lees style of writing. But the theme of the poor black man doesnt really interest me that much. 5 years ago
Only worth doing if you choose to read it of your own accord.
I read it for the first time in an English Lit class, and I always find that overanalysing books the way you do in lit classes takes the enjoyment out of them. (Don’t get me wrong, I love English Lit. It’s broadened my knowledge of the written word no end, but it can be rather tedious.) 6 years ago
I read it summer before last, and then during the following school year as part of the curriculum. When I first read it, I felt that it went nowhere until halfway through, but it was SO much better the second time. I could see the big picture of all the events and how they tie together, and I appreciated the little details. Such a wonderful book! 6 years ago
