    The first graphic adaptation of this American classic that I taught several times a day every semester I taught high school, also showing the Gregory Peck film version, which if you haven't ever seen, is a must. Fordham, a Brit, who also illustrated an adaptation of Philip Pullman's Go...

    Jem looked like Jem, Scout looked like Scout, but Atticus didn't look like Gregory Peck. Still very well done. ...

    Five stars for Harper Lee. Three stars for this decent enough adaptation of the novel, which tries but fails to capture the richness of the original. It's okay, but if you don't know the novel, if you don't understand the power contained in this book, Fred Fordham's retelling won'...

    To Kill a Mockingbird: A Graphic Novel is a 2018 Harper publication. I?m not going to review the plot of ?To Kill a Mockingbird?, but will instead offer you a review of the graphic novel version of the beloved classic. I am new to the graphic novel category and am still ...

    Well. . . it's official. I'm in love again. This time it's a widower, a man in his late 40s. . . father of two. . . an attorney. His name is Atticus Finch. He lives in the Deep South, among an appalling racism that is shoulder deep, yet he has taught his children that being a ...

    Uncle Jack Finch: "You want to grow up to be a lady, don't you?" Scout: "Not particularly." Until this book fell into my hands, I would have scoffed, "Ah, yes, a graphic novel . . . for those who are too lazy to read the Cliffs Notes version." But, oh, this is gorgeous: the fam...

    1. The novel is my favorite book of all time and this graphic novel has become my favorite graphic novel. 2. I loved the pictures. 3. As soon as I started reading, it was like going back to an old friend. Scout made me laugh, Atticus made me want to marry him, my heart soared with t...

    Love that they did this in a graphic novel format. It's been years since I've read the actual novel, but from what I remember they seem to have gotten the heart of it. I think for someone who is reading this story for the first time, you must do the novel first. This book means so much...

    If you are a fan of both graphic novels AND To Kill a Mockingbird, pick this up. This is a gorgeous graphic novel first and foremost. Fordham?s artwork is well done, very effective and quite faithful to the book. There are plenty of direct quotes from the book and in places that h...

    To my surprise, I?ve actually rated this higher than Harper Lee?s original; I?d attribute that to the fact that I read the novel in high school and haven?t reread it since then, so I tend to associate it with boring essay assignments and a sense of duty. I?m also surprised by...

    To Kill A Mockingbird should need no introduction. It is an American classic and arguably the most important work in American literature in the 20th century. I was thrilled to learn that it was being adapted into a graphic novel, which could make the story more accessible to young...

    I liked this book just about as much as I enjoyed the original classic novel. The art really helped to bring story to life. Way better than the film adaptation which I remember being unintentionally hilarious. I have zero interest in reading the sequel since I heard it backtracks on th...

    This graphic novel is a perfect complement and homage to the novel, and much closer to the original manuscript than the classic film. It is in no way a replacement, but an adaptation that should make both English teachers and students very happy. For the full review: https://paulspi...

    RATING: 5 STARS 2018; Harper/HarperCollins Canada To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is one of my favourite books. As cliche as it sounds, this book changed my life. It made me aware that the colour of one's skin can be enough for someone to hate you, that truth and justice wasn't...

    Ok wow how long ago did I read the prose version!? Maybe in highschool, so roughly 200 years ago yes ?I always remember liking the book (I named my dog Atticus lol but I just loved the name; also my dog is a menace so that backfired) and I was really keen to reread. I know the bo...

    To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite stories. I first read the novel in high school, and then acted in a stage production of it one summer, have watched the move once or twice, and have revisited the book every so often. I'm very familiar with it, and I think it's a masterpiece ...

    Drawing upon some of richest source material in American literature, Fred Fordham delivers a reverential adaptation. While the art can be a bit stiff and conservative, the story remains as powerful as ever in this new form. I gulped it down in one sitting. ...

    All the stars! TW: racism, child abuse and sexual assault This book was nothing short of phenomenal. It was heart-wrenching, soul-destroying and positively brutal in its portrayal of racial prejudice in 1930s America. I was disgusted and deeply saddened to read how black people ...

    I struggle knowing what to rate this. It was a faithful adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird, which was great. What wasn't so great was the artwork. The artwork was actually quite good, and gave a enjoyable format to re experience the story. But there was one aspect of it that I found q...

    3.5/5 I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed this graphic adaptation for Harper Lee's classic novel. I remember reading it in middle school, and the story has stuck with me because it was one of the only books I was made to read by a teacher that I actually really enjoyed and took a lot...
