To Kill a Mockingbird
By Harper Lee
Harper Lee's Pulitzer prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep south—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred, available now for the first time as an e-book.
One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father-a crusading local lawyer-risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.
Why did I wait so long?5By Monkey 456I don't know how in the world I missed reading this book when I was younger. I guess like a lot of kids in Middle School and High School I was more interested in other things like sports and friends and goofing off than reading. Every time I'd need to do a book report I'd borrow Cliff's notes and well...skip the book. A trivia question made me take up interest in Harper Lee and I decided to go back and read this book. It's no wonder it's a classic and that Harper Lee won the Pulitzer Prize. I could barely put it down and spent most of my time reading it. It took me about less than a week and I enjoyed every second of it. I'm sure I can't add anything to all of the 50 plus years worth of praise written about this book so I'll just say that I wish I had read it when I was supposed to some 35 years ago.
Still Engrossing5By katambRead Mockingbird again on a recent airplane flight and it's still one of the best stories of all time. Great for almost any age.
To kill a Mockingbird5By MookielamoThis has to be the twentieth time I have read this book. It just never gets old. The lessons learned from it are endless and lessons that will never be solved. We all go thru them and all learn from them. Hopefully what we learn will make this world a better and kinder place to live.
