I just finished reading To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee. I LOVED it. It's a sometimes sad, sometimes scary, sometimes shocking, sometimes funny and always heartfelt book about the men and women, white and black living in a small town in Alabama in the 1930's. It deals with prejudice, government, education and family.... all (and here's the best part) from the eyes of a 6 year-old girl named Jean-Louis (she prefers Scout though, OK?). It covers about 2 years of her and her 11 year-old brothers (Jem) lives. A very moving and lovely book.
It was made into a movie in 1962 starring Gregory Peck as Scout and Jem's father, Atticus. As Gregory Peck is one of my favorite actors (Roman Holiday *happy sigh*) I will try to rent it soon and let you all know how I liked it.
Have any of you read the book or seen the movie? If so, did you like it?
Keep reading.... :)
