Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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.” Life
“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.” New Yorker
“A novel of great sweetness, humor, compassion, and of mystery carefully sustained.” Harper’s

Finally!

I'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.
