"There's something in our world that makes men lose their heads—they couldn't be fair if they tried. In our courts, when it's a white man's word against a black man's, the white man always wins. They're ugly, but those are the facts of life.
"The one place where a man ought to get a square deal is in a courtroom, be he any color of the rainbow, but people have a way of carrying their resentments right into a jury box."
The plot of this book is set in the 1930's in Maycomb County in Alabama. Right off the hook, you can feel the southern charm melting into you as you read this book, The book sets the tone for what is a deep beautiful haunting tale. Not in the sense of a horror novel as to Kill a mockingbird isn't at all. What is it however is a beautifully written tale that takes you right into the heart of a warm Alabama state and the adventures a little girl and her brother have and of a shocking event that takes place within it and the event's after it.
It takes you into the heart and nature of what it was politically like to be of colour in that time.
The characters in this book are mesmerizing and you can't help but feel you're actually there with them as little scout tells the tale of her father as well as the other eccentric characters within the Novel.
I absolutely loved this book considering it was written in the 1960s, I truly think it holds its place as a classic, and when I found out that they sometimes read this book in American schools it made my heart sing! This book should never go out of fashion it's definitely one of those book's were the plot should give you a humble and warm feeling, and always stay in your heart to recount.
