To Kill a Mockingbird

(10)
'Shoot all the Bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a Mockingbird.'Lawyer Atticus Finch gives this advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel - a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man's struggle for justice. But the weight of history will only tolerate so much...A benchmark of classic American literature, To Kill A Mockingbird approaches the highly sensitive topic of racism in 1930s America with humour, warmth and compassion, making it widely recognised as one of the best books of the twentieth century and in American literature.
Portrait

Before she started writing, she lived in New York and worked in the reservations department of an international airline.

„shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit`em, but remember, it`s a sin to kill a mockingbird“

Nina Grahmann, Thalia-Buchhandlung Hamburg

If somebody asked me about my fabourite books, I would say that this is definitely number one. I have never read anything that is more compassionate and warm than this book.

Young Scout Finch grows up in 1930`s Alabama together with her brother Jem. As their father, a lawyer, defends a black man who is charged with rape, Scout is about to learn about prejudice and violence, but also what it means to be open minded and to have true friends.

Having released the book in 1960, Harper Lee won the Pulitzer Prize for "To kill a mockingbird" in 1961.
This is the 50th anniversary edition.

Absolutely loved reading this book. The characters depicted in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD are amazing and of course the story itself is remarkable. A very inspiring read!

Ein klasse Klassiker! Aus der Perspektive eines Mädchens geschrieben, für alle Altersgruppen von Teenie aufwärts prima geeignet. Liest sich gut und verliert nicht an Aktualität. Diese Ausgabe hat ein angenehmes Format.
