To Kill a Mockingbird

by Harper Lee

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Way to be proven wrong!

I thought Demelza could be my favourite fiction read of the year, but this book was my second read of the year – & it has overtaken Demelza! This book is so thought provoking!

I knew it was about the trial of a black man in the Deep South, but didn’t know much more than that. I certainly wasn’t prepared for the wonderful children in this book, Scout & Jem’s thoughts, actions & emotions are authentic & believable.

As much as I enjoyed the children’s story at the start, the book really takes off when it takes a darker turn. A most unflinching look at racism & hypocrisy.

I’m surprised it took me this long to read this book.
