Good or Bad?

With the mandatory reading now over I was wondering what my fellow class mates thought of the book. Would you recommend it? Why or why not?

Ok, I thought the book was rather interesting in parts, especially when we got to the trial. While reading it though, I found myself falling asleep on some of the chapters. I didn't think it was a terrible book, just not the best one I have ever read! I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be bored! No I am just kidding! I would reccommend this book to anyone who wants to read a good average book about the harsh racism times. It really does give you a better insight on how racism was in Maycomb in the 1930's. I would have to say that I enjoyed the book more, just for the simple fact that we got to do this blog. If I didn't understand or I wasn't sure about something, all I had to do was look at our blog, and I would be all better! I think this was a fun project, and it made the book more interesting to me!

The book was slow in the beggining, but picked up towards the end. I felt it was a decent read, but there wasn't anything special about it.

I really liked this book. It gave a really good insight into a child's opinion of racism, and I think that's what makes it a great classic. It gives the reader an entertaining storyline to read about, but it gives you some information about what was going on in the 1930's. I do agree with the fact that the intro was a little dull, but once you got into the story, it got pretty entertaining. I really liked this book, but would recommend it to people who like classics, of course, and to people who are interested in reading insights into American history. Overall this book was really good and of course, well-written.

I'm not a really big fan of this book! I read it when I was in the fourth grade and now reading it a second time, I didn't like it anymore than I did in fourth grade! I wouldn't recomend this book just because I think that there are better books that people can read in shool than this one! But thats just my opinion.

It was hard to understand at some points, clearer writing would benefit the reader. Also, if you're an educated person, the segregation, racism, and prejudice in a small Southern town should come no surprise.
