I loved this book when I first read it but now I have to read it over again for my stupid honors english class. I don't mind too much but I just read last spring, I'm not quite ready to read a second time. And I asked my teacher if we're gonna read Of Mice and Men and she said yes, so this'll be my second 1/2 time with that book. My friend Treyvon loved Of Mice and Men the first three or four times he read it, but now he says he's not quite so sure

I thought it was really boring at first and gave up for a couple of months, but then I went back to it and I loved it. The ending is great!

I just finished it last week. And I really liked it! From beginning to end, I thought it was really good. And actually, I rather liked the ending. Scout is just an awesome character, and so is Atticus..

I want to go rent the movie now.. see it all played out on screen. But yay, it really was a good story.

argh! i am so nervous i have like my CATs coming up for TKAM and i dont feel like i can do the book justice... i kinda do essays half arsed cause i can get away with it! but every other book i have done has been pretty straight forward in that like with TKAM there is something to be learnt from every chapter and there are so many underlying links and meanings - mrs dubose for instance!

Blah, I have to write an essay on this book now. Which would be fun if we didn't have to have a prompt! But we do, and it's to a pick one quote from the book, and talk about it and how it pertained to each character. Grrr. Does anyone have a good quote off the top of their head, as I'm having difficulties!

I'm reading it again for the zillionth time! It's such a beautiful story. The people who don't like it least ya gave it go right? Better than saying you don't like it and not have read it. Kudos to you people for actually TRYING it unlike SOME people I know around here. (at my home town area/school)

Hobbit Fancier i will try and find the proper quoet in a tick... my dinner is ready now! he he he!
