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.


Nelle Harper Lee is known for her Putltzer Prize-winning novel To Kill a Mockingbird, her only major work. In 1999, it was voted "Best Novel of the Century" in a poll by Library Journal. Ms. Lee was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for her contribution to literature in 2007. Her father was a lawyer who served in the Alabama ...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Outstanding realism aspects Just like many others out there, I had to read this book in high school for English. Some may come to find the beginning boring, due to how suspenseful it is, however as soon as you reach the climax, you wouldn't want to put the book down! The climax was written beautifully and realistically. I, for one, was a bit disappointed in the climax and conclusion since it didn't bring enough closure to me. However, that is the beauty in this classical book - its realism of how things in this world may play out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope... I really couldn't stick with it. The slang was difficult to understand, the plot was quite boring, and it was just so dry and slow moving. I LOVE reading don't get me wrong, but it just really wasn't for me. Others may love it because of their tastes but I prefer a book with more adventure, pace, mystery. Sorry to say but if I could give it negative stars I would truly, honestly do it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I was curious about what the fuss was about I tried to read this book twice before I actually was able to stick to reading it. It is a good story, don't get me wrong, but I found myself looking up words, terms, and references quite a bit. If you're not familiar with Southern slang, be ready to look up terms quite a bit in the first few chapters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lesson still waiting to be learned! I was required to read Harper Lee's novel as part of a literary study during which I had to identify how Harper Lee perpetuates a need for change not only in the world of To Kill a Mockingbird, but also in our world today. Due to reading the novel in this light I was acutely aware not only of the fantastical story of the main characters and a connection I grew to them throughout my readings, but also the artisan the author uses in order to highlight the bias and unfair expectations of the community within this novel. It may be a fictitious novel, but it has a lot to teach while providing entertainment and enjoyment for many.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A book that gets better with age This book is definitely one that gets better with age. As a child my dad always told me about how much he loved this book, however I did not actually read it until high school English. Most of the classics we read in high school were boring and hard to finish, but this one, this one had myself and my classmates racing to the finish. According to my dad, every time you read this book you learn something new, and I cannot wait until the next time I read this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A "Classic" Worth the Read I was concerned at first when I was told we had to read this for school; I didn't really like "classic" books. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was an intriguing and enjoyable book. The trial and climax of the book justify the rest of the book's slow pace, as it helped to build up the world around these characters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Have To When we had started writing this in school I recall myself thinking about how boring it was going to be, and I can remember myself saying "We live in Canada, who cares". However, after reading the book I remember my change of heart, and how this book completely changed my view on reading classic novels. We had previously read The Help in class, which is a great book but it didn't spark any interest in me. This book managed to intrigue my grade 9 self, change my views on a whole genre of novels for the positive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Incredible story I read this group a while back in grade 9 English class, and boy am I happy the teacher chose it. There's few books out there that are able to so deeply entangle you in a web of emotion and morality, taking you into the life of someone truly a victim of society back in the times of unapologetic breachment of your rights and humanity. I don't remember the particulars, but one of the most signifying moments of the book is seeing the life of a crippled, black man, abused and eventually imprisoned and executed for a crime he did not commit. It's not a happy story but it's an important one to read if you want to get to through a classical English masterpiece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An important read! To Kill a Mockingbird is a fantastically written novel with such an important message. It touches on the excitement and confusion that comes with growing up, the impact of racism, and answering the tough questions. Jean Louise Finch is the bright narrator of this story and speaks about the injustices that people of colour faced in her time and how, in her eyes, her father, Atticus Finch, was a hero. Everyone should read this novel. Greatly recommended!

Although the story itself does have some fantastic content and insight relating to segregation and racism in 20th century small-town America and the characters are memorable, it leaves something to be desired. Worth reading it at the very least for its status as an American Classic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic Classic book, interesting perspective, honest themes. Harper Lee does not sugarcoat the racism and inequality of the world. I definitely recommend this book but remind readers that racism is still a problem, in one's own backyard, not just in that time and place To Kill A Mockingbird took place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Book. Great Lessons. Very great book. Contains themes involving tension and segregation, and also talks about characters who work well together, despite the legal repercussions back in those times. It also teaches us a bit about the law from back then. There is an accompanied award-winning movie to this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from :((( i always thought that this book was one of those boring ones, since it was on my school curriculum. i was never curious to read it. until one day, i do not know what got through me and i decided that i should give classic books another try. i am not quite sure if this is considered as a classic, but since it was one of those books that exposed a challenge for me , i decided to start with this one; and i loved it, completely loved it. i didn't want to pick up any other book after i finish it. i was still thinking about what i have read. i remember i was in my first trip in cuba when i was reading this particular book, which was amazing, because i had plenty of time to do nothing but read and relax. i couldn't i wouldn't put it down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless classic Beautifully written and still alarmingly relevant. The way race and the judicial system are intertwined in this book is reflective of the present day US - a much-needed reminder that we haven't made nearly enough progress in abolishing discriminatory practices & systems

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as Good as I Expected I was really excited to see a book written in the 60s about racism. I thought it would show hardships, the battle of racism and the prejudices against African-Americans. Instead it was mare about a little girls life and how she is. The trial the book is about happens towards the end and since Scout is little there isn't much detail. I feel like it would be more effective to tell it from Atticus's point of view.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic!!! This book is very much a classic. I enjoyed every word that Harper Lee wrote. I clung on to it like it was gold. She wrote beautifully, and it is really well written. It is based off true events, about growing up in a society that is much different from the one we live in today, if not by much. I could read this novel over and over, and over again. She is such an appealing author. Definitely a must read!!!

From Our Editors

Originally published in 1960, To Kill a Mockingbird continues to be an all-time favourite. Part of the appeal of Harper Lee’s classic is the ever-relevant nature of such themes as love, dignity, justice and freedom. Every child should have the opportunity to experience this literary masterpiece set in America’s South.

Editorial Reviews

"A novel of great sweetness, humor, compassion, and of mystery carefully sustained."-Harper's Magazine

Employee Review

FROM: The Best Book I Ever ReadWe see the events of this story unfold through the eyes of narrator Scout Finch, an inquisitive six year old. We see and feel the prejudice of Alabama in as her father, Atticus Finch, defends a Negro accused of raping a white woman. The children's preoccupation with their reclusive neighbor, Boo Radley, creates fear in the children and humor in the novel. The innocent, simple way in which the children see things makes the outcome more emotional. After several readings over the years, this novel still has the power to evoke strong emotional responses - something that other novels I have read cannot do.
