To Kill a Mockingbird: 50th Anniversary Edition

To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee 4.5 stars. wonderful book. great, important story, engaging narrator, well written. deals with issues of racism and classism, community and individuality. pretty impressive in scope, actually. really glad to have re-read this, since the last time i read it was junior high or high school. not 5 stars because (and i know i'm going to get crucified for this) it's well written and in parts fantastic, but overall just well written, not great."...but before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.""They've done it before and they did it tonight and they'll do it again and when they do it -- seems that only children weep."
