5/5 Classic Stars
On The Back:
The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic.
Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior – to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos.

Really there isn’t anything I could say about this book that hasn’t already been said besides this: PLEASE read this book! No matter if you live in the U.S., Japan, France, or on the moon. You absolutely need to read this book before you die. It is one of the best books I have ever read and reading it a second time, like I just did, made more points a lot clearer in the book. Please, just go buy/check out/borrow this book at the next chance you get. You will not be disappointed.
