    I thought that this movie followed the book fairly well. It was very sad but also heart-warming. The movie also reminds you to treat people that may have problems nicely, but not differently from everyone else because that tends to frustrate them. This movie was great and I really enjoyed it. P.S If you watch the movie make sure to have a box of tissues at hand and ready to use. Also you should read the book if you like the movie.

    Many said that Harper Lee would, in fact, not be able to write a good novel. Her first and most famous one, however, did prove them wrong. This is a charming classic that follows the journey of a small, six year old girl named Scout as she explores the wonder of growing up in a world ran entirely by adults. It's during the depression and Scout's single father, Atticus, is having a harder time then usual supporting her and her older brother, Jem, which is strange news for a lawyer. When he gets a tough case, regarding an african american man framed for harassment, he finds many struggles within the case itself as well as the input of his fellow townsfolk. Having grown up in a sleepy Alabama town in the 30's, Scout was sheltered most of her life from the reality that encompassed the rest of the world. She has never seen so much excitement in her life. The most unique thing about this novel is how the story grows. Most books allow you access to the main character's own mental growth, but this book showcases the development of an entire town and how changing one thing may lead others to turn against one another or rise up for the cause. In To Kill a Mockingbird, you will be able to relate to the mentally excelled main character and the way that she views things from outside the box and without a previous knowing. I recommend this book for an older audience because of its language and rather mature themes. It will always have a warm spot in my heart as one of the most touching and cleverly written books in existence.

    pickletiger1 added a movie review.
    My love for this movie was a surprise (considering I'm more of a Marvel fan), but when I did watch it, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Its storyline was intriguing, it was action packed and the special effects were amazing. As the specially selected group of misfit convicts are assembled, they learn about each other as well as new things about themselves. The entire movie, they spend trying to hide their true emotions, but in the end, they are able to address that they do have feelings and sometimes wish they lead normal lives. I was somewhat disappointed. The previews and trailers hyped up the roles of Harley and The Joker and I am sad to say that they're scenes were few and far between. All in all it is a good movie and I would recommend it to a little bit of an older audience due to its language and some mature themes. We can only hope for a sequel. :)

    I had to read this book for a book group for school, and when I first began to read I was incredibly drawn to the plot. I find myself reading this book in the dark, for the suspenseful and thrilling aspects of this book! Any reader will be drawn to this book for the amazing plot and suspenseful elements. Christie never fails to surprise us with who the murderer really is!

    pickletiger1's book review was featured in Paper Towns.
    This was an amazing piece of work from an already well known author. Paper Towns in very unique in the way that rather focusing on what is happening in the book's universe, it focuses on what exactly is happening inside Quentin "Q" Jacobsen's mind. From his unhealthy love for his childhood friend, Margo Roth Spiegleman to his opinion on poetry and music, Greene allows you into the mind of Q. The plot seems simple; Margo disappears and Q wants to know where she is. However, this doesn't stop our author from giving the novel more complexity and underlying meanings. Q's utter fascination with Margo is, in my opinion, the most peculiar thing about the story. Although she pays him no attention, he is interested in her life. He thinks of her as an exotic creature rather another girl his age. To my disappointment, I soon learned that Margo was NOT in fact an exotic creature. She was only interesting because no one understood her reasons, which was mainly because she kept them secret. Margo always wants something dramatic and boisterous without previous thought of ho it may affect others. If you are in search of a book that will open your mind to new concepts about life and people, this is the book for you. If, however, you crave a book that answers every one of your "why's", I must inform you the novel seems to lack that aspect. Nevertheless this is a timeless book that you will not be able to relate to, but instead grow from.
