To Kill A Mockingbird - review

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee is one of these books that everyone have heard about, but never read. That's what I think at least. But I got the chance to read it, as my first book of the year, and here is what I though about it, and what my expectations were.
I don't know what I thought this book was about, but it was SO different from what I had thought. This was not my typically book, and I'm surprised by how "quickly" I got through this actually. If you think about this is not my genre of books, a month is pretty good.

Last year one of my new years resolutions was to read at least one book each month, and I did over that! I had read about 20 books in 2015. This year I will try to do the same, but this time it is not a new years resolution.

To Kill A Mocking Bird is different in so many ways. What the book is about, and how it's written and the feeling you get when you read it. I got the chills sometimes, and I don't know why actually. It was just that good.

It's written from a little girls persepctive, so you kind of get this story told so honest, because she just tells you what she sees and what she thinks, she has no borders.

Let me tell you what the back of the book says:
""Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird" - A lawyers advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic  novel - a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humor the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of 1930's. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man's struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much"

This book made me think a lot, so I would totally recommend it!

Until next time,
