Any additional comments?

BUT- I wanted to put one anyway. I know this book has been around for a long time. I think I saw the movie many, many years ago.

What a wonderfully written story right? The characters are all believable, the story is truly a reflection of the deep rooted racism in the south. The story is written so well that you can see a movie play out in your mind. You can see it. To me, this is what makes a story great.

The best part about this story is that it still can ring true today. Loved every minute.
