To Kill a Mockingbird is a bit of a let down compared to the last three books that I've read.
The book is set in a place called Alabama in America in the 1930's. The main character in the book is Scout whose real name is Jean Louise Finch and her elder brother Jem. Scout, Jem and their friend Dill try to encourage Boo Radley, who has stayed inside his house for years and years, to come out.
Meanwhile their father - Atticus - is trying to defend a coloured man - Tom Robinson - who is believed to attacked a white girl. Because this book is set around the 30's when most people were racist, most people hate Tom Robinson. Personally I think that racism is bad but at the time the book was set it was acceptable. The author has the same opinion as me and agrees that racism is bad.
I didn't really enjoy this book that much because it was complicated and harder to get in to - but I know it is a classic. I would give this book a 5 out of 10.
