Book Review: To Kill a Mockingbird 

To Kill a Mockingbird was written by Harper Lee and was published in 1960. The book is dramatic, interesting and it moves slowly to the point of human behavior. The book characterizes human behavior by emphasizing inequality differences between whites and blacks. The book also illustrates and praises kindness and cruelty. In addition, Harper Lee directly clarifies different behaviors of characters by showing some as innocent, some as cruel and mean, and some as brave. Harper Lee start the book with introducing lots of characters, which makes the readers confuse and boring, but by adding scenes of Boo Radley and introducing him as foreshadowing character creates a gloomy and suspicious tone for the readers. Suddenly when the second part of the book arrives, Harper Lee build's up the climax of the book which establishes readers’ attention towards the trial and creates suspension toward readers to know what will happen next. Overall, I really liked the book, it kept me attracted and reminded me my childhood by showing Jem’s and Scout's experience of silliness, innocence, and kindness. The book claims the developments of Scout as moving to adult hood, which also reminds me about developments and changes throughout my childhood to now. To Kill a Mockingbird presents the readers with different emotions, sometimes comic, sometimes compassionate, sometimes dramatic, sometimes suspension, sometimes simple, sometimes gloomy, sometimes happy, and sometimes grim. Therefore, the book will keep you surprised and suspicious as you will read.
