Description:
'Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird'. A lawyer's 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 humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. 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.

"To Kill a Mockingbird" is filled with interesting characters, very well-shaped like Dill and Scout and Harper makes them all seem just as real as the people in your own hometown. In a just world an innocent man should be found not guilty. But if you want to know what the jury in the book finally decides and what happens to the main characters and the rest of the people who live and breathe in "To Kill a Mockingbird", you'll have to read the book!
