“Shoot all the Bluejays you want, if you can hit’ em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mocking bird.”
The author wrote this book in a very racially tensed time. The book deals with the issues of racism and injustice.The Mocking bird symbolizes the innocence of some of the characters and shows how innocence is exploited.Best part of the novel was the authors approach to characters. All of them had a deceptive appearance of character. Some of the characters who seem to be bad come out to be the real goods. Sometimes we form a bad notion of people whom we have not met and when we meet them we find that they were really good .There are so many small incidents which are so inspirational and most of the time it appears that you are living the story.
The story telling ability of the author is wonderful and no doubt it is hailed as one of the good classics to read.
