Yesterday I completed reading ‘To kill a mocking bird’ a novel written by Harper Lee. I felt kinda empty after reading it. It was a really nice book but I have often heard about it that this book was considered to be Red flag. I don’t know why it is considered to be a red flag because this book has been read by the American students at their school during their 7th standards.
The age group which I recommend for this book might be 16 plus. Because there are certain terms in the book which could not be understood by the younger generation. So I would suggest the age group of 16 and above to read this book.
To kill a mocking bird is a novel published in the year 1960 by the author Harper lee. The main characters of the book are scout a six year old who is known as jean Louis, her brother jem, their friend Dill, Mr Atticus (scout and jems father) and boo radly.
The book starts with scout talking about some events which resulted in jem (scouts brother) accident. Where they talk about boo radly a neighbor to bring him out of the house, so boo Radley always stayed at his house he never came out. So scout, jem and dill try to bring him out of the house. Scouts father Atticus is a lawyer. Atticus gets a case to defend which is considered to be a very controversial case in their town.
I really liked scouts character and also boo radly , boo only enters in at the end of the book and only has a sentence to say “can you take me home”. So at the end of the book I felt empty because in the end scout does sees boo radly for the first and the last time, that’s the only reason I felt empty. I forgot to mention about what mocking bird is, so mocking birds are considered to be small species of birds mimicking songs.
There is a famous quote given in the book, “shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mocking bird”
According to me the original mocking bird of the story is boo Radley, it’s a must read book. I would suggest a person above 16 can definitely read it.
