Pakula, remembered Universal Pictures executives questioning him about a potential script: "They said, 'What story do you plan to tell for the film? Civil Rights leader Andrew Young comments that part of the book's effectiveness is that it "inspires hope in the midst of chaos and confusion" and by using racial epithets portrays the reality of the times in which it was set.

Lee seems to examine Jem's sense of loss about how his neighbors have disappointed him more than Scout's. The novel has never been out of print in hardcover or paperback, and has become part of the standard literature curriculum. In 1950, Lee moved to New York City, where she worked as a reservation clerk for British Overseas Airways Corporation; there, she began writing a collection of essays and short stories about people in Monroeville.

Allusions to legal issues in To Kill a Mockingbird, particularly in scenes outside of the courtroom, have drawn the attention of legal scholars. In 2006, British librarians ranked the book ahead of the Bible as one "every adult should read before they die". Lee was so impressed with Peck's performance that she gave him her father's pocket watch, which he had with him the evening he was awarded the Oscar for Best Actor. David Kipen of the National Endowment of the Arts, who supervised The Big Read, states "people just seem to connect with it.

A 1991 survey by the Book of the Month Club and the Library of Congress Center for the Book found that To Kill a Mockingbird was fourth in a list of books that are "most often cited as making a difference". Beryle, Banfield "Commitment to Change: The Council on Interracial Books for Children and the World of Children's Books", African American Review (1998) 32 (17), pp. Shields, who wrote the first book-length biography of Harper Lee, offers the reason for the novel's enduring popularity and impact is that "its lessons of human dignity and respect for others remain fundamental and universal". By 2004, the novel had been chosen by 25 communities for variations of the citywide reading program, more than any other novel. Pulling at the strings of the local political scene is not only the local warlord who is destined to become Mace's nemesis, General Ruak Shahlai, but hardbitten American arms dealer Erica Atkins, who controls a whole international network to her advantage.

I do think Kitty should have faced some consequences for her actions rather than ending the book in a better position than when she started but on the whole, I did enjoy it and it did make me laugh (is it wrong to say that? Nicknamed Scout, the narrator, who is six years old at the beginning of the book, lives with her older brother Jeremy, nicknamed Jem, and their widowed father Atticus, a middle-aged lawyer. In a really tight-knit community, you’re always an outsider until your family has lived there for generations. So, Kitty’s on a mission to rid the world of ‘bad men’ and while the plot is a bit out there and is laced with humour and sarcasm , it is born from the world women live in. She is so distracted and embarrassed that she prefers to go home in her ham costume, which saves her life.
