This book, without discussing spoilers, is about people growing up
in the south*. These two people, Jem and Scout, live in Maycomb County, with their father, Atticus. They meet their friend, Dill, and go on many adventures with him. The plot becomes complicated when Tom Robinson is accused of assaulting a girl, and their father is tasked with defending Tom at the court case. *(Strikeouts were added to remove any names, places, or references, as stated in the Disclaimer)
Mr. Green said the book was very popular, and “a classic”. I thought it was going to be “OK”, but it turned out really great! It was funny, and kept me interested to the point where I decided to read ahead! (A decision I would later regret when attempting to discuss it with my classmates) The only problem I had was with Southern Accents. It was a little hard to understand at times, but not too difficult. Other than that, it was an awesome book!
I think the film wasn’t too bad. It did well with portraying the characters, and it did really good with the Court Scene. But, I wish it had included more scenes with Jem and Scout’s childhood. All the hooligan fun they got into. It did a pretty good intro on that, but I wished it had done more than just that. But for a film interpretation, they did good! Scenes were awesome, that acting wasn’t as as cheesy as I was expecting, and overall, just a fun movie to watch. I’d have to say, this is a pretty good film for anyone. Anyone too young to read the book, or anyone who doesn’t want to read it.
