    And Thank God, so did my son! The one book I had to read that I detested was "Silas Marner." If I reread it now, I don't know if I would like it anymore. I think it had more to do with my English teacher.

    Had to read Silas Marner, The Giver, Maniac Macgee, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, The Scarlet Letter, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe in school though.

    We read it in high school, sophomore year I believed. I loved it. I've read it about 3 times since then, and have seen the movie twice. I really think it's a better story to be left to high school students.

    I can't remember what grade I was in, it's a great piece of American Literature. What do you not like about it?

    I just don't like being forced to read a book... it takes the fun out of it, ya know?

    and I found it boring and painful to get through. I really didn't like reading novels with the exception of the Dune Trilogy

    Had to wait for high school. Generally, I liked it.

    I read it in 8th grade. It's one of my top three favorite books of all time.

    Thankfully, I did not have to read that-it sounds like it would suck. I hated reading books for school, as well as novels.

    I am saddened that you feel this way about this book. It is one of my all time favorite stories. I also had to read it for school, seventh grade I think (I was a terrible student), but even then I loved it. I wished Atticus Finch was my father. I reread it every few years. Give it a chance.

    I had to read it and I was educated in the UK. That just goes to show how well thought of it is even abroad. I hope you have to read our books Lord of the Flies and 1984. Despite whether you think any of these novels are boring, they are a key part of our fabric. They are important. You need to re-approach it. TKAMB is a wonderful novel and part of your literary history. Get some pride in your heritage for goodness sake.

    I read it twice, and I enjoyed it. It is not my favorite book of all time, but I didn't hate it.
  • OBEY 2013/01/31 03:32:17
    I had to read it when I was in high school, but I never liked it.
  • Aingean 2013/01/31 03:24:05
    Yeah I think I had to read it in 10th grade.
  • Cat 2013/01/31 03:12:30
    Never read it.

    Loved it

    But I love it!

    Actually I read it as a freshman in high school. I LOVED To Kill a Mockingbird.

    even British kids have to read that book. And we have plenty of our own wonderful books forced upon us. I can't even imagine that TKAMB is frowned upon.......by anyone.
