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.
