    Since my daughter is in 8th grade and will be reading the novel in 9th, I thought she'd enjoy getting a "jump" by reading this screenplay. We then discussed the possibility of Truman Capote being the author and read his short story in this book, "The Thanksgiving Visitor" as well as Langston Hughes' poem, "Freedom"...all of which are EXCELLENT. Thumbs up on all the works in this book. Sidenote: My grandmother went to high school with Gregory Peck (Atticus in TKAMockingbird) and I have her yearbook with his signed photo in it; she always remembered him as a wonderful guy.

    This was the first year I taught the screenplay vs. the novel. It worked really well for my special class students and I was impressed with how few classes it took, which was good since we were coming down to crunch time. I gave out parts and they really got into it. Wish we could have read in auditorium and been a little theatrical. Next year!

    My son had to read this book for a school assignment, so I read it also. He is on the autism spectrum and this book is great because it is written in screenplay format ~ speaker is identified and there is ample spacing between speakers. Concise and easy to read for those that do not gain meaning from too many adjectives, descriptions, and unnecessary words. It's always interesting re-reading something after many years. It was a good assignment for me too!

    Found this at a thrift store and now that I've had a chance to revisit the book again before watching the movie, I can finally get around to reading this screenplay. All I can say is, if you don't have time to watch the movie, this book will suffice as a handy reference. It's all here. There are no deleted scenes or lines. I dare you to read Atticus' lines without hearing in your head the sexy baritone of Gregory Peck who was born to play this role. The essays and song lyrics at the end are also good reading. The first essay provides a useful history of what ultimately caused the Great Depression and how it affected everyone. The next is the story of a young child growing up in Florida during the depression observing his lawyer father take a stand against an injustice done to his family. Next is a rather long tale of a depression era young boy in Alabama who is bullied by another boy at school. He is encouraged by his family to invite this bully to Thanksgiving dinner where his true colors come out and he ultimately ceases picking on the victim. Another essay is the observation of a young man working in a soda plant who becomes acquainted with a shy, introverted Boo Radley type who turns out to be a talented writer. Finally, a father writes of an incident where he intervened one night while crossing through the park with his daughter to break up a group of white boys beating on one innocent black boy for trespassing on their turf. Jim Crow laws allowed such injustice and the father realizes he can't explain social injustice to his inquisitive daughter.Overall, this screenplay and the related reading make this book a nice addition to any library.

    While this play constantly seemed like it was in fast forward compared to the book, it was very enjoyable. Scout still came off as the cute, tomboy little girl, and Jem was still the young mature leader of the group. Even though some of the novel's significance is lost in this shortened version, the large messages still are effectively portrayed.This has been a great literary tool in teaching lower level high school students who would struggle with Harper Lee's novel. I highly recommend it for anyone teaching TKMB to middle schoolers or lower level high schoolers.It is also a fun, quick read for anyone who enjoys quality literature.

    Some of my friends like this book, but some of them hated this book. I personally liked this book at first time, but when I second time I read, I was confused. The title, To Kill a Mockingbird, does not mean only certain people from the book. I think Mockingbird stands for all the victims around the world who were scarified their life as a human to corrupted society. It would be a good book to try to find the message that this book contain.

    I hated this book. I only read it becase i had to for english claSS IN 9TH GRADE. It was so boring to me i didnt get the point of reading it. Maybe i didnt like it because i didnt throughly read it like i should have. I understood the whole deal with the racism and the tree. I guess this book just want for me. I don't usually go for this type of book.

    Terpana dan jatuh cinta sepenuh hati pada Atticus. Tidak ada keraguan dalam dirinya untuk menjadi seorang "pembela"... :)

    I actually read the book because for some crazy reason I had never read it. Wow, is all I can say. One of the best books I have ever read. So sad to finish.
