SNYOPSIS FROM GOODREADS:
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. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.

MY REVIEW OF To Kill a Mockingbird:
Historical Fiction – Classics
I loved my time with Jim and Scout. Every time I listened to this audiobook, it was like visiting with old friends. All of the characters are well written. Atticus, Boo Radley, etc. I loved them all!
I love the story. I love the writing. I love the impact and the theme behind the writing.
I mean, there is a reason why this book is considered a classic.
I read this book for the first time in 10th grade as a summer reading assignment. As a sophomore in high school, I enjoyed this books but now seven or eight years later, I enjoyed it even more. Plus, the audiobook is absolutely fantastic.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about branching out into a new genre, because although this book is considered within the historical fiction genre, it has an easy storyline to follow.
