Voted America's Best-Loved Novel in PBS's The Great American Read
Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep South—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred
One of the most cherished stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than forty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father—a crusading local lawyer—risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Harper Lee's thoughtful story of an explosive scandal in small-town Alabama has been an American classic since it came out at the dawn of the Civil Rights era—and its message of compassion feels just as vital today. Sissy Spacek narrates Scout Finch's coming-of-age discovery of racial injustice, loss, and compassion in a clear, soothing Southern accent. Spacek’s acting talents bring to life Scout's wide-eyed honesty and her father Atticus' clear-eyed wisdom, while also emphasizing Lee's sly humor.

This is the best audiobook I have ever listened to - Sissy Spacek gives an outstanding performance. This is how this book should be read. I listen to it at least once a year.
This is all time favorite book and movie and now I will put Sissy Spacek's version of TKAM as one of my favorite audiobooks. The way she can read as all the many characters and just have subtle changes in her voice is amazing. I truly feel like I am back in Maycomb County - I have been listening to this on my lunchtime walks and Scout & Jem have just begun "their longest journey together". I can't wait to keep listening yet I don't want it to end! Yes it's more expensive than other audiobooks but totally worth it - do youself a favor, buy it, listen and enjoy!! :-)
