To Kill a Mockingbird
To Kill a Mockingbird | Harper Lee
Harper Lee's Pulitzer prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep southand 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.

Sweet mother of Jesus. It happened to me again, for the second time in 24 hours!!! I ordered the book on the left (this time from a seller on Abe Books), and got the cover on the right. 😭

Seeing as how I scrolled through PAGES of this title in order to select a specific cover, and purposely did not order any of the scores of cheaper listings featuring the cover on the right, I‘m seriously annoyed. 🤬

Leftcoastzen Wish more of the Internet booksellers did the job correctly so you would get the actual detail on the book you are ordering.

Gonna start nice and blunt.
Racism is bad, there is no argument there, but the level seen in this book is outside any experience I have ever had in my lifetime, so truly understanding the world and characters that Harper Lee created was a slow and steady process.
The book is good, but it took time for the world to feel real to me, but it certainly stuck with me once I finished.

"I asked Miss Maudie about it. 'Your father‘s right,' she said. '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.'"

Today, we participated in a fundraiser for our amazing local, all-inclusive playground. For a donation, we got to paint a parking space (and can repaint as many times as we like for 1 year). The lot is very old and bumpy, so this ended up being way harder than anticipated, but here‘s our spot! #atticus

Scout and Dill are two of my favorite literary characters. I like this novel even more as an audiobook, narrated by Sissy Spacek. Overall rating: 4.48 stars

Like many kids, I read To Kill a Mockingbird as part of an assignment. At that time, it topped the list of my fave required reading. Coming back to this one for my podcast as an adult was especially interesting. I still loved the writing + the glimpse of childhood we get through Scout‘s eyes (+ Scout!). But I also became aware that its depiction of race is way more complicated than I understood as a teen. Learn more on my latest ep! Link in bio.

I finally read To Kill a Mockingbird. When I was reading the first page I realized from the first few lines that I had tried reading this book a long time ago... I must've stopped too early and never got around to finishing it. This book has many good moral lessons and as for Atticus Finch... What can I say???? Such a wonderful Character.

I love this. Any other book or movie dad would make a big deal and say "Then you'll do it for THREE months". But lawyer dad is like "One month was the sentence handed down, so one month you will serve, and your debt to Mrs. Dubose's camellias will be paid." #justice ?

I'm having one of those moments I haven't had in a few years, where I get both melancholy for my late #ADHD diagnosis (at 26) and grateful (better late than never). #Audiobooks are a godsend, library ones exponentially so. It still astounds me I managed to (barely) graduate law school undiagnosed, but this classic of my profession has sat on my shelf unread for 5 years. Now I'm ⅓ of the way through, having only started it 4 hours ago 😊 #Pulitzer

Reading the comments, i am skeptical if any of the commentators actually read the complete book. What is the point of speeding through school if you didn‘t learn anything of use? And taking the test together is pointless unless we all are going to crash together or soar together. Love, G0d. Because God is Love.

I don‘t think it will come as any surprise, but I‘m going to say it for the record, anyway: I wholeheartedly recommend To Kill A Mockingbird. Read it out of curiosity, read it for the cultural capital, read it for nostalgia, read it for the questions it raises – just read it! It is accessible and engaging for all readers, of any age, anywhere in the world. Full review here: http://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/to-kill-a-mockingbird-harper-lee/

I was initially forced to read this and I am not going to lie the first few chapters took a minute for me to get through but once the story started to get going I couldn‘t put it down. The way Harper Lee was able to incorporate so many metaphors and life lessons all compact into one tiny story amazed me. I highly recommend this novel for anyone who enjoys classics or a real thought provoking tale!

It‘s taken me a long time to get round to reading this, but finally I did. Lee does go into some depth describing events that don‘t drive the story forward much, but apart from that, it is a book rightly placed on the list of 1001 books to read before you die.
