To Kill a Mockingbird

A read and read again here - especially when a tad down.
How refreshing to hear that Harper Lee had no need to write another book as it said "everything I ever wanted to say".
Wish some young authors would feel the same !!

This book was made into one of my favourite films. In a Gregory Peck documentary some years ago (he playing the part of Aticus Finch) I learnt he named his daughter 'Harper' as she was born around the time of the making of the film, and he realised what a special story To Kill a Mockingbird' was.

To Kill a Mockinbird

One of my all time favourites. At some point along the years my copy went missing and I bought a new one about four years ago with the specific intention of my husband reading it. He didn't take the bait for ages until I come out with some research about how imporatant it is for boys (we have young son) to see their fathers reading books ( not just mags/newspapers) so he finally picked it up and is totally gripped! It is always soooo lovely when someone you know should love something actually does!

I love this book and the film too. Just looked for the book and my copy seems to be missing too - must get another one, as definitely on the re-read list.

Sandra - I wondered why she didn't write anything else.
A very good reason!!

To Kill a Mockingbird

A brilliant book - wonderful characterisations - fascinating themes (prejudice, justice etc). I think the film was on TV earlier this year (March, maybe) though as always, it's best to read the book first. It was voted number seven in Radio Five Live's virtual bookshelf, their collection of 100 favourite books. (At the moment I think they've reached number 45 or thereabouts.)

WELL! i can't ignore praise such as this - it's on the To Read list now...

our local bookshop is HUGE so i'm sure i'll find it in there...we get lost in there for hours on a sunday sometimes, wandering around with a coffee from Starrybucks next door.

I hope you love it as much as everyone else on this forum. Have you seen the film with Gregory Peck?
One of those films that really does the book justice - very powerful acting. I saw it on TV recently and still enjoy it.

That post really made me smile !!

To paraphrase " to kill a mockingbird is a sin " and not to read this book is one also !!

Many people would disagree. Just because you didn't like
it doesn't mean it was rubbish, just not to your taste.

Despite reading it years ago, I only just found out that Harper Lee is a woman! Doh.

I know it is not usually the case James but this is an exception. Try reading the book and then you may be able to see how good the film is.
