To Kill a Mockingbird

by Harper Lee

A superbly crafted story which is totally engrossing and both funny and heart rending. It tackles the big themes of prejudice and courage in a compassionate way but never forgets to tell the story

A terrific read. The books highlights the values of tolerance, simple humanity and innocence. Disturbing themes, but a real feelgood read

I don't think anyone has ever bettered showing us an adult world through the eyes of a child. Like so many others, I fell in love with this first when I read it at school and have read it many times since. A perfect jewel of a book with an important message that you swallow almost without realising it.

I chose this on frontline as my treat and was surprised that no one took up the recommendation. It has been my favourite book since I was at school and I am also now in my 50s. I would urge anyone to read it, as it is a truly inspiring story. It deals with themes of friendship and justice in a gripping story.

I first read this book as a teenager and now I am in my 50s but this book has been a friend of mine for over 30 years. If I am ever stranded on a desert island this is one of the books I am taking with me.

One of the best books written in the 20th century. But did Truman Capote write it?

Not an easy read, but very rewarding if you keep going with it. There is also an excellent black and white film adaptation of it.
