I had finished listening to To Kill A Mockingbird Sunday night. I did like it, but I didn't like some parts. To Kill A Mockingbird is by Harper Lee. It was published in 1960. I asked my uncle what grade the book is required to be read. My uncle was a principal. He said 10th grade. I don't remember reading the book in school. But back then I had missed alot days. To Kill a Mockingbird is set in the 1930's. It is about a six year old girl named Jean Louise Finch. She tells her experiences during that time. Her father is a lawyer who had a big case of rape. The case was against a black man and a white girl. The parts I didn't like was that Atticus didn't win the case, and the black man was shot. I can't believe that Bob Ewell had set the whole thing up. If the case had been brought up today I think the case might have been thrown out. I'm listening now to the sequel Go Set A Watchman. I will probably be finishing it today. I will be posting about it tomorrow.

But you have to understand that in 1930s deep south it would be very unrealistic for Atticus to have lost the case and the black man shot. You can't really compare the then and now except in philosophical terms.

@JohnRoberts But people were racial bias back then though too. In the book there was talk about one hold out.

Maybe you would love the classic movie version of To Kill a Morningbird in black and white instead. Let us know if you love the sequel instead.

Is it a true story?

no. But Harper Le did say that people and her life in the south had inspired her.
