Wow, What a Classic!
I’ve seen the movie several times and love it. However, I never read the book, until recently.
Harper Lee engaged me from the first paragraph. Her characters come alive. The narrator is an eight-year-old girl named Scout. She tells the story of her small southern town during the depression and of her family. The father Atticus, was a lawyer, appointed to defend a black man for rape. I only hope that there are really fathers somewhere in real life that are like him! Yet, this was not a sappy book.
If you’ve seen the movie and enjoyed it, you need to read this book. There are so many little enjoyable snippets that were not in the movie. If you haven’t seen the movie, nor read the book, treat yourself. I highly recommend this gem!
