To Kill a Mockingbird (Enhanced Edition)
Voted America's Best-Loved Novel in PBS's The Great American Read
Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred
One of the most cherished stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty 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.
What people are saying - Write a review
Harper Lee brings a piece of history to life as she describes the perils of living in the early 20th century in the South. Seen through the eyes of a young girl, the book redefines the morals of the south and challenges the old racist ways that were so romanticized in the era. Lee's use of symbolism as well as formulated and accurate diction help to also explain courage, change, and hope.
Definitely a must read.
