My Favourite Book of All Time

In preparation for taking my GCSEs *cough*cough* years ago, we were told that we needed to buy the set texts to study in English.  At the time it proved harder to get hold of this book than you would think.  In fact now a days I have even seen this book for sale in the local supermarket. This book that I thought that I would hate and would never read again after my exams, became my favourite book ever.  One that I have read & re-read numerous times.  So what is the book that I am talking about?  It is the famous…

It tells the tale of a small southern US town, which includes some very serious & unpleasant events.  The story is told through the eyes of a little girl called Scout, who is guided by her wise father, Atticus, her brother Jem & their cook Calpurnia.  The book tackles several important issues including racism, equality, morals and ethics.

The book has become extremely popular and in the UK this is probably due to it being a set text for GCSEs.  I have seen the film version starring Gregory Peck & although it was a great adaptation, I was upset that the film makers had completely changed the ending.  In my opinion there was no need to do this.

What is your all time favourite book?

  1. The all time favorite book? Really tough question! I cannot think of solely one…I loved David Copperfield, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Camille (Or The Lady of the Camellias) by Alexandre Dumas fils and I also loved To Kill A Mockingbird, really touching indeed.
