To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

I picked up this book to read as I had heard so much about it and it's one of the American classics and they have even made an movie out of this book.I won't call this book as one of favorites, I just found it ok to read.

This story is about a fictional small town in Alabama, it talks about southern county. Scout and her brother Jem are raised by their widowed father Atticus and their housekeeper, Calpurnia. Their summers are consumed by grand plans to lure the recluse Arthur “Boo” Radley out of his spooky home. The ladies meet for missionary teas  As the story progresses, it reveals ignorance, fear, hypocrisy and prejudice.Atticus Finch is called on to defend Tom Robinson, a black man accused of raping a white girl, Mayella Ewell. He is eventually found guilty and, “tired of taking white man’s chances”, attempts to escape and is shot to death. The good thing about this story is where author  shows that everyone is human and multi-faceted. Mayella is a pitiful figure, driven by loneliness and abuse; Mrs Dubose, a bigot who screams insults at the Finches, is also a courageous woman who kicks her morphine addict and dies.
