5.0 out of 5 stars If you only ever read one book...., 3 Jun 2008
This review is from: To Kill A Mockingbird (Mass Market Paperback)
....you should read this one. Literature is a very personal thing, and there's more to it than the prima facie quality of the story, the characters, the setting, etc etc. More important than any of these things, is the point in your own life when you read a particular book and the relevance it has to you. You don't have to be Boo Radley or Atticus Finch, that's not it at all; but there's something in you at certain times in your life, when something like this picks you up and sweeps you along.

That's why, for me, this is the best book ever written. It captured and captivated me at a certain point in my life; and I'm taken back there whenever I re-read it. Very few other books have achieved the same feat; Moonfleet by J Meade-Falkner, Dickens' Great Expectations, Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath and George Eliot's The Mill on The Floss.

Try them all and maybe they'll capture you like they did me. After all, it would be a shame if all you had ever read was Tom Clancy....
