Publisher's Summary

'Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.'
A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel - a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the '30s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man's struggle for justice. But the weight of history will tolerate only so much.
To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story, an antiracist novel, a historical drama of the Great Depression and a sublime example of the Southern writing tradition. Out now as an unabridged audiobook, narrated by Sissy Spacek.

I waited too long to listen to this book

What did you love best about To Kill a Mockingbird?

Wonderful story and expertly read by Sissy Spacek. Sissy breathes true life into the characters in her reading.

What other book might you compare To Kill a Mockingbird to and why?

Nothing I have read can compare to this story in this genre, outstanding.

What about Sissy Spacek’s performance did you like?

Sissy Spacek read the novel with such a confident grasp of the narrator that it's hard to believe she is not speaking directly to you.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Don't listen to this story whilst grocery shopping, or if you do, head to the produce section and pretend the onions are getting to you and not the emotions of the story.

Any additional comments?

Why did I wait so long to hear this story, don't make my mistake. It was a great listen and a masterfully told story, five stars all round.
