Harper Lee's classic novel of a lawyer in the deep south defending a black man charged with the rape of a white girl
One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned many distinctions since its original publication in 1960. It won the Pulitzer Prize, has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, and been made into an enormously popular movie. Most recently, librarians across the country gave the book the highest of honors by voting it the best novel of the twentieth century.
“Marvelous…Miss Lee’s original characters are people to cherish in this winning first novel.”
New York Times
“[A] remarkable triumph…Miss Lee writes with a wry compassion that makes her novel soar.”
“Miss Lee wonderfully builds the tranquil atmosphere of her Southern town, and as adroitly causes it to erupt a shocking lava of emotions.”
San Francisco Examiner
“Skilled, unpretentious and totally ingenuous…Tough, melodramatic, acute, funny.”
“A novel of great sweetness, humor, compassion, and of mystery carefully sustained.”

Finally!August 13, 2014I've been waiting for this book to come out on audio for a while. I loved it when I read it in high school, so when I found out there was going to be a celebrity narrator I got really excited. Sissy Spacek is great as Scout. This was an excellent pairing of book with narrator, and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to revisit this classic—or enjoy it for the first time.
Sissy Spacek is
an Academy Award–winning American actress and singer. She has appeared in a
number of films, including Badlands,
Carrie, and Coal Miner’s Daughter, for which she won an Academy Award for Best
