To Kill A Mockingbird


Item Details

The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic. Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior - to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.

The intro may be confusing, but it is interesting already. Just need to get past the first few pages. I am not yet done but this book has peaked my interest in our class's novel study, and explores the topics of empathy and prejudice. Keep in mind it is written in the 1960s but is set in the 1930s.

A fantastic book examining the injustice of racial prejudice in the South through the simplistic eyes of children. One of my favorite books.

An excellent book. No wonder it's so well known. A novel about growing up in the south and the prejudices that people have and people learn. There are so many observations of society made by the young protagonist would be impossible to mention them here. Well crafted with strong characterizations. A book everyone should read.

Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.
