.: To Kill A Mockingbird :.

A 1961 Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Harper Lee, To Kill A Mockingbird has been ranked as one of the book that every adult should read before they die.

To Kill A Mockingbird took place in a small Southern Town in Maycomb, Alabama, during the Depression (somewhere in the 1930s') from the eyes of an six to eight year old girl (the timeline for this novel is about 2 years, if I'm not mistaken), Scout Finch (also known as Jean Louise).

The primary themes of this novel evolves around racial injustice (a black man was trial for raping a white girl) and discrimination (between classes, gender,etc).

In my personal opinion, the start of the novel was somewhat mundane, but towards the middle, I was more and more engrossed into finishing this novel.

I particularly like the ending, where Scout said to that people are essentially kind "when you really see them".
Isn't that really true?

Do read this novel! :)
