To Kill A Mockingbird is one of my daughter’s favourite book, she has read it so many times and never tires of it.

Read the book at school many years ago and I watched the film with my son only a few weeks ago.I really didn't see any issues at all.

Re: To kill a mockingbird bird

Also a classic of mine since high school. So many personalities, issues, family life, instincts and emotions to deal with. There is a lot to be acknowledged and learned from Harper Lee's winner. Even the movie is well worth watching.

Re: To kill a mockingbird bird

Have you read "Go Set a Watchman"?

Turns out Atticus Finch was a racist after all. I didn't enjoy it as much as "To Kill a Mockingbird"

You mean there is a sequel? I never knew that - thought it was a one off.
