Reviews

read it in high school, still liked it

This is one of the few books that I "had to" read in school that I liked. It's a fast read and I want to get a copy of it to re-read. Maybe I'll pick up the movie too...

This book capsulates what the legal profession should emulate at all times, Virtue, and not the zest to earn the largest fee. Here we see a virtuous lawyer defending the freedom of an innocent man without the benefit of a big pay day. Thrilling, brilliant, and thought provoking!

Description: Amazon.com Review "When he was nearly thirteen, my brother Jem got his arm badly broken at the elbow.... When enough years had gone by to enable us to look back on them, we sometimes discussed the events leading to his accident. I maintain that the Ewells started it all, but Jem, who was four years my senior, said it started long ... (more)

Kirjapäivyri 2012 (13 books items)

"Kindle, englanti Harper Leen ainoaksi jäänyt kaunis romaani pikkutytön elämästä parin vuoden ajalta jenkkilän syvässä etelässä. Tässä on ainakin sellainen teos, joka tulisi pakkoluetuttaa vähintään kaikilla lapsilla ja aikuisilla. Moraalisaarnausta vältetään, mutta tarinassa ja päähenkilön isässä on silti niin vahva moraalinen selkäranka, että se puskee vaikuttavasti läpi kirjasta. Kaikki eettiset kannat ja mielipiteet perustellaan niin tyhjäännyttävästi ja yksi"

"Day 24 - Favorite female character in a book Scout Perhaps an obvious choice, but I have another reason besides all the ones you've probably thought of. Like Scout, reading and learning came very easily to me and I was ahead of my peers (which resulted in my skipping Kindergarten). Thus I spent much time in my early school years bored, trying to figure out why I had to sit and listen to teachers drone on about things I already grasped. Of course there were other areas where I didn't know as much"

Alright, this is my Book-Meme (The 20 Day-Version) (24 books items)

"We read this in Class relating to our topic of "Individual VS Society". And this book really impressed me. I couldn't stop reading and I was kind of sad when it was over. A very interesting novel with an unexpected turn of events and the abilty to let the reader feel with the characters. All the worse was the film we saw in comparison afterwards. (Although I had intended not to watch it.)"

""It would have been very easy to write a novel about a rape trial involving a black man and a white woman, set in the deep, deeply racist South and seen through the eyes of a young girl, that wallowed in too-simple choices and made-for-TV-movie sentiment. Thankfully that novel is not To Kill a Mockingbird. The young girl is the curious, clear-eyed Scout, and her father, who defends the accused, is the immortal Atticus Finch, a pillar of weary small-town righteousness. What follows is neither sim"
