I think this is one of the best books I ever read. This book has so much lessons to learn the reader. Prejudice is shown out of another perspective. Through the book you start to love each of the characters and you don't want the story to end. The best part of the book though is the end.

There's a lot of ugly things in this world, son. I wish I could keep 'em all away from you. That's never possible. - Atticus Finch

Watch how Truman Capote and Harper Lee interact in the story as Dill and Scout. It's wonderful. Lee details racism as only a southern white person can. She uses all of the casual denigration built into the language of the era to outline the incredible differences between the separate worlds of the black people and the white people of that time.

A stunningly simple book on the surface; yet it challenges the realities of race relations in the US, especially in the South of that time in history, challenges the way people judge each other, and reinforces the love of a family.

It has a lot of aspects but it never gets boring or lose its pace and that's what makes it such a lovely read
