Hi, not sure someone will reply, but still

I´m thinking about buying a book called "To Kill A Mockinbird" from Harper Lee. It sounded pretty interesting and the writing is pretty good. Its not my native language, so I though it could be a good way to improve my English.

Anyway, just wanted to ask if there´s someone here who read the book and could give me a second opinion, I don´t know. What you liked about the book, positive and negative aspects, things like that. I really don´t have any friends I can ask this, so

We’ve added years to life not life to years. " - George Carlin

OMG the Captain General himself.

Just read some reviews on some sites or something. I hate to say it but this forum is pretty much dead. I doubt you'll find someone who read that book and would write a review here..

Here you'll find the opinions of many people who read it. Click

To start with, thanks for your response :)

I saw the link you shared and the critics are pretty good ^^ Its almost certain that I´ll buy the book. From what I read, it relates with me a lot. Just wait until the exams are over

It's been a good few years since I've read it, but I do believe I liked it. I would recommend it.

I know a lot of people that love it, but personally, it never did interest me because of how conflicting the plot is. You pretty much have to find out on your own about any book, to be honest.

You had to? That sucks. Reading for obligation is so wrong. Its the school system we have I guess

I too had to read some books and be evaluated. By doing that, they just decrease the motivation of a kid to read. And they teach it in a hurry, its so stupid.

Nevertheless, I´m glad you liked it :)

That was easily one of my favorite required readings from middle school. I'd highly recommend it, especially with how prominent it has become in pop culture (compared to most literature).
