From Book Description
“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.”
Remember how I said I wanted to re-read this book because it’s “sequel” was coming out? Well, I did – in only two sittings. 🙂 My goodness. I read this book back in 8th grade or so and I had forgotten how wonderful To Kill a Mockingbird is!
Of course, as one would expect from a classic, the novel is well-written, and Harper Lee’s writing style is very engaging. She had me “hook, line, and sinker” from the very beginning of the novel to the end. I will never forget the characters who seemed like real neighbors by the end of the novel, especially “Boo”.
If you haven’t read this book, or if it has been a very long time, I highly recommend that you pick it up.
Now I definitely can’t wait to read Go Set A Watchman (although it may take a while since I have 4 books in my immediate “queue” to read)!
