Book a Day – To Kill a Mockingbird

Book a Day I read because of my reading club – August 2018

One of the book we read in April 2015 was To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. At the time the author had only recently published another book with the title: Go Set a Watchman. These books are connected by plot but I’m still somewhat confused as to which book was supposed to be the first one chronologically.

While the book was mostly easy to read the themes were quite serious and relevant today so we had no choice but to get a lot of cookies and sweets while we were busy debating. The topic we were especially reflecting on were the parenting skills of the main character.

I found come characters endearing but I was not pleased with the tone of the book. It reminded me of style of Mark Twain which I don’t like. While the book has a certain value it was not one I enjoyed reading.
