To Kill a Mockingbird After reading To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, I think this novel is a very well written memoir. The story follows and captivates the live of a young Jean Louise Finch, also known as Scout. I really enjoyed reading this novel. One of the major themes in this book is innocence, particularly the innocence in Scout. The book is set when she is around 6 years of age, so it’s showing Scout’s discovery of the real world. She’s oblivious to many things around her like the racial issues in society. Her innocence represents a rare thing, even though she learns the hard truth as she grows older, she still remains a pure and precious young girl. Her innocence shows a different perspective in the story because it’s looked through the eyes of a little girl, not an adult, so we get the sense of what Scout is feeling as we read the book. This book has many golden lines and memorable quotes. One of my favorite line from Atticus was when he was talking to Scout about Walter Cunningham. He said, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view, until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” (TKaM Page 30) Usually, golden lines are greater human truths, so it helps the readers to relate to the story and the characters. Also, the lines help identify or classify the character’s personality. The example I previously mentioned shows that Atticus’s view of society; it shows that he is a raw human being and that he thinks all life is valuable and you should never judge someone based on their social status or their appearance. I really enjoyed the style the author wrote for the novel. She was very detailed and she had a creative use of symbolism. One of the major events in the story was Tom Robinson’s trial, and Tom Robinson represented the mockingbird in the story. Atticus mentioned to never kill a mockingbird because they are harmless creatures. Tom Robinson was the mockingbird; he was evidently innocent in
