This is probably one of my favourite books of all time - we read it in school but I ended up buying my own copy because I loved it so much!!

I want to see this remade soon with a certain actor playing Atticus Finch. It is one of my FAVORITE books of all times and an outstanding film, but I think it's time for a remake.

Hugs,
Rach

Do you think Sean is old enough to play Atticus? I tend to think of the character as being in his mid to late forties and Sean is only mid thirties. Mind you I am not doubting his ability to pull it off just that he might be overlooked by casting agents.

That would be some clever casting, but nobody could beat Gregory Peck! He was Atticus!

Oh, I think Sean could at LEAST equal Atticus. He has the same "everyman hero" feel that Gregory Peck had and the movie, while a classic, certainly could use a remake for a younger generation.

Actually, since Sean has lost so much weight now, he may have to wait a few years for Atticus. LOL But he has the acting weight to do the part. I've now seen everything he's done except one part and he's much more varied than you think. I think he was BORN to be Atticus!

Rach

We read it in school and I do not know whether this is because it was a school book or because I just honestly have felt this way outside of school but - no disrespect everyone - I hated this novel.  It's one of the only novels I have never been able to finish.  I thought it was really well written and I can understand and comprehend it from a literary point of view.  But in terms of catching and holding my attention it failed, miserably.  There was only approximately only 10% of my grade who really enjoyed the novel in my school.  At least I know I'm not alone.

I know from a literary point of view, it is a brilliant piece of literature.  But my personal opinion of it is i'd rather never read again than read it.  I am sorry.

-Jes

p.s. Seriously, I do not mean to be rude or to disrespect you if I have.

No worries, Jes, its just your opinion!  Its a shame you didn't enjoy it, though, I hated some of the novels I've done in school and it kind of ruined English for me, a bit.  I think the subject is easier if you enjoy it.  Personally I loved To Kill A Mockingbord, but I know a couple of my friends hated it too, so you're not alone by any means!

Miss Lee is still alive (unlike Marlon Brando who passed on July 1, 2004) and this is the last thing I read about her.

Lee has been known to split time between an apartment in New York and her sister's home in Monroeville. She has accepted honorary degrees but has declined to make speeches.
She has attended luncheons for students who have written essays based on her work held annually at the University of Alabama.

Her withdrawal from public life has prompted persistent but unfounded speculation that new publications are in the works.

In a letter published in Oprah Winfrey's magazine O (May 2006), Lee wrote about her early love of books as a child and her steadfast dedication to the written word: "Now, 75 years later in an abundant society where people have laptops, cell phones, iPods and minds like empty rooms, I still plod along with books."[6]

While attending an August 20, 2007 ceremony inducting four new members into the Alabama Academy of Honor, Lee responded to an invitation to address the audience with "...it's better to be silent than to be a fool".[7]


To Kill A Mockingbird has been one of my favorite novels, and my all time favorite movie.

One of the best novels of all time IMO and an absolutely superb movie adaptation as well.

Both my husband and I love the book and recently re-watched the movie with our kids (aged 10 and 12).  They were suitably impressed I'm glad to say!

Probably in my top 5 fave books alongside Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien, A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving, the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

I could re-read these books endlessly lol.
