Somehow, I was never assigned this brilliant novel in school and would have gladly taken it over "The Scarlet Letter" any day. It may have been written over fifty years ago, but the novel's themes of justice, compassion, and courage are every bit as relevant today. (Particularly in light of the Supreme Court's DOMA decision.) But these themes never feel heavy-handed or preachy, especially as explored by Scout Finch, one of the most delightfully stubborn yet true and honest narrators of all time. The way Lee is able to impart such wisdom through the thoughts and struggles of a young, innocent child is truly astonishing.

I have watched the movie multiple times and finally decided to read the book. Definately one of the top 3 books I have ever read.

Loved it! I feel in love with the father because his personality and morals. This is a book that will make you think; yet, still keep a little bit of naive thoughts from the perspective of a child.

I loved this book. Both parts of the book are very well-done, and although each seems to be separate at first, Lee does a great job of weaving in themes from the first into the second. The children have very child-like perspectives. They do not seem adult beyond their years. Every character - particularly each of the Finches - is distinctive. I liked how Atticus shows depth. He is not heroic simply because of who he is defending as an attorney but his entire outlook on the case and its significance to his family and career. This book seems so simple, but it's about several things at once - racism, injustice, social status, innocence, accusation, and experience.

It had been over ten years since the last time I read this book, and it is just as amazing as when I was a child reading it for the first time. Though I did not realize it then, this book, at the very least, set in stone certain ideals about fairness, understanding and advocacy. Atticus helped raise me.

"Staff Pick" by ,

We didn't read this in high school. The assigned book was The Scarlet Letter, which was already a favorite of mine. Recently, however, I decided that I'd ignored To Kill a Mockingbird for too long. If you haven't read it, or if it's been awhile since you last played with Scout, Jem, and Dill, then I urge you to tag along. I read it slowly, as I knew I'd never read it again for the first time. There are no big operatic moments and yet I found myself weeping several times. Its power lies just beneath its deceptively simple sentences. It may be an almost-perfect book.

"Synopsis" by , One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned many distinctions since its original publication in 1960. It won the Pulitzer Prize, has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, and been made into an enormously popular movie. Most recently, librarians across the country gave the book the highest of honors by voting it the best novel of the twentieth century.
