To Kill a Mockingbird | by Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
(HarperCollins Publishers, 1999, 323 pages) *audiobook read by Sissy Spacek*

On a recent road trip, my husband and I listened to To Kill a Mockingbird because it had been years since either one of us had read it. The story of Jem, Scout, and Atticus is a delightful journey paired with humor and social consciousness. Reading this as a young adolescent, I was aware of the civil rights issues that were raised, but was more focused on the adventures of Jem and Scout, and how Scout seemed to be too smart for her own good. After listening to it as an adult, not only to did I appreciate all of Jem and Scout’s adventures, but the way Atticus parents his children, by showing them the consequences of their actions and allowing them to make their own decisions. If you have never read this book, it is a must read! And, if you have read this book, I highly recommend listening to Sissy Spacek’s narration of it.
