5.0 out of 5 stars A literary staple that everyone should read. Timeless and brilliant., 9 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: To Kill A Mockingbird (Kindle Edition)
I first read to Kill a Mockingbird as a child and was prompted to read it again as my son has been studying it and discussing it. It is the tale of young Scout Harper, the daughter of lawyer Atticus Finch set in the deep south USA in the 30's as Atticus takes on the case of a Black Man who has been accused of the rape of a local girl and recounts Scouts observations of the of the events, ignorance and intolerance that surround this world and it's concept of justice.

It is a book that was very important to me as a kid, powerful stuff that really made me think about ignorance, prejudice , hypocrisy, entrenched values, cruelty and kindness. At the time I related to this world told through the eyes of this young girl but this time my experience was more of having lived for decades in a world that hasn't moved on as much as I'd hope and where the lessons of this book are still there to learn.

Harper Lee wrote only one book, but what a book. A classic and one I would urge anybody and everybody to read.
