This novel has it all...one of the 10 to take with you if you're left on a deserted island.

"The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy southern US 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, which also became a classic." (from the back cover)

One of those life-changing novels. There's just so much to think about in what is seemingly just a story about life in small town America.

I was very pleased to pick up this copy at the 2005 Bookcrossing Convention in Fort Worth.

Thanks skyring for sending this. Hard to believe I've got this far in life without reading this classic, I'm glad you chose this book for me!

Journal Entry 5 by bookfairy65 from Yass, New South Wales Australia on Tuesday, July 12, 2005
This is such a beautifully written story, it is no wonder it was awarded a Pulitzer Prize. The characters are original and Harper Lee brings them to life in a way seldom seen. I loved Atticus and his children, also loved Boo Radley and Dill. This is just a wonderful read and I'm still wondering why I've never read it before now.

Thanks again for the opportunity to read this classic Skyring (and Lsquared). I'm going to reserve this book for the winner of the next sweepstakes (to be drawn next Monday) because I don't think I could bear to wild release this book!

This is a book I had to read in early high school and I remember not liking it much at all. Will be interesting to see if I feel any different 20+ years later.

Thank you bookfairy65

Journal Entry 10 by tycho-brahe from Sydney, New South Wales Australia on Tuesday, February 10, 2009
Probably caught this at the meetup two years ago (sorry no journal entry).

Anyway finally read it. Loved it. A classic examination of racism in the Southern US,
from a child's point of view. Studied this in high school, wasn't ready, doubt I even
read all of it. I should I would still hate the way the did/have to taught/teach it.

This book is certainly worth revisiting as an adult.
The US certainly was and still is a richly complex society
with "the very best and the very worst"
(to miss-paraphrase and rip-off some song writer/poet whose name I can't recall).
