To Kill a Mockingbird por Harper Lee (1960)

  1. 3013
    The Secret Life of Bees por Sue Monk Kidd (Caramellunacy, rosylibrarian)
    Caramellunacy: Both stories are about a young girl in the South coming to terms with racism. Secret Life of Bees features an teenaged protagonist whereas To Kill a Mockingbird's Scout is quite a bit younger, but I thought there were themes that resonated between the two.… (mais)

    The Heart is a Lonely Hunter por Carson McCullers (dele2451, rosylibrarian, chrisharpe)
  3. 279
    The Book Thief por Markus Zusak (paulkid)
    paulkid: There are many similarities between these books. For example, a strong father-daughter relationship, where the father teaches by example by taking the moral high ground in protecting a persecuted minority - also kids that break down the barriers between secluded and socially awkward neighbors through books and sundry shenanigans.… (mais)

    Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry por Mildred D. Taylor (Caramellunacy, Utilizador anónimo, Utilizador anónimo)
    Caramellunacy: Both stories about a young girl coming of age in the South and racial intolerance. Also both beautiful reads! To Kill a Mockingbird is told by Scout Finch - the daughter of the town lawyer called upon to defend an African-American man accused of rape. Roll of Thunder is told from the point of view of the daughter of a cotton-picking family who only slowly grows to realize the extent of prejudice her family faces.… (mais)
  5. 173
    Snow Falling on Cedars por David Guterson (EerierIdyllMeme)

  6. 100
    Native Son por Richard Wright (DanLovesAlice)

  7. 101
    Peace Like a River por Leif Enger (atimco)
    atimco: These books share a precocious narrator, vital family relationships, and themes that are funny and sad and thought provoking all at the same time. Extremely well written and engaging.
  8. 102
    Cold Sassy Tree por Olive Ann Burns (bnbookgirl)
  9. 80
    Other Voices, Other Rooms por Truman Capote (Othemts)
    Othemts: These books are two sides of the same coin of life in a small Alabama town. Where there's dignity and hope in Mockingbird, Other Voices is decadence and demoralization
  10. 71
    Goodnight Mister Tom por Michelle Magorian (eclt83)
    eclt83: Goodnight, Mr Tom is as touching as To kill a mockingbird. Problems in society causes pain for the weaker.

    A Lesson Before Dying por Ernest J. Gaines (rarm)
  12. 51
    The Ox-Bow Incident por Walter Van Tilburg Clark (mysterymax)

I remember reading To Kill a Mockingbird in high school and enjoying the story. Re-reading it 18 years later made me appreciate the book even more. There are good life lessons to be learned here such as just being a decent person and treating others with respect.

This story takes place in a small town in Alabama during the Great Depression and follows a young girl named Jem, her brother Scout and their father Atticus Finch. The story is told through Jem's eyes as she slowly grows up, a coming-of-age. A racially charged court case grips the community and this is when the story really unfolds.

Atticus Finch is a great character that teaches his kids morals and tries to raise them into responsible and good natured adults and by the end of the book I was big fan of his parenting style and the way he viewed the world.

There isn't much else I can say about this classic that hasn't been said already. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an inspirational and touching story! ( )

Bel libro. Un po' lento, un po' semplice, un po' infantile ma comunque bello. ( )

“The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.”
― John F. Kennedy

I met someone in the late '80s who went to a very fine southern law school and before that a very fine southern college. In a group the subject of race relations came up. We were all a little curious at how she would respond. She didn't miss a beat, saying "We have a lot of "tradition" in the Delta." And then she smiled. That was her response. One word. Tradition.

This book is about tradition. And it still makes your stomach churn and your fists clench in futile rage against polite blindness and courteous savagery.

I thought of The Help a bit when I read this, but then realized that this was closer to Souls of Black Folk in it's unflinching exploration of the terrible consequences of racism. Lee's gentle story-teller style and beautiful prose made it all the more devastating. We expected the violence bred of ignorance. But the harshest and most indefensible lines in the book were delivered by smiling southern belles--representing so called educated polite society.

I think the world has changed quite a bit since then, obviously, but the importance of this book has not diminished.

Fiction weaved to deliver lesson in integrity - an enriching read - Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize winning novel ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’

The book is compressed with lessons in humanity, equality and integrity. A fine guide into morally sound parenting.

It directs and demonstrates for the reader a path to conduct humanely barring any discrimination, and to extend and exercise equality.

Stirring one’s conscience to do what is right. To never let prejudice and hypocrisy win over justice.

“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.”

“I think there’s just one kind of folks. Folks.”

“Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”

Mockingbird is not necessarily as widely admired among scholars of US literature as it is among its fans. I once enraged an audience of very nice book-lovers at the Cheltenham literary festival by suggesting that Mockingbird was just the teensiest bit overrated. There are many reasons for this assessment, not least the feeling that Atticus Finch’s famous moral rectitude is, in point of fact, disturbingly flexible. He tells Scout: “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.” That’s all well and good, and a fine American sentiment that goes at least back to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. But part of Mark Twain’s radical move in that novel is to make his hero an illiterate backwoods boy; Lee’s hero is a virtuous, middle-class white man, full of noblesse oblige to the black people he defends (who revere him for it), but who doesn’t bat an eyelid at the common knowledge that the illiterate, white-trash Mayella Ewell is regularly raped and beaten by her father.

Its sentiments and moral grandeur are as unimpeachable as the character of its hero, Atticus. ... It's time to stop pretending that "To Kill a Mockingbird" is some kind of timeless classic that ranks with the great works of American literature. Its bloodless liberal humanism is sadly dated, as pristinely preserved in its pages as the dinosaur DNA in "Jurassic Park."

A book that we thought instructed us about the world tells us, instead, about the limitations of Jim Crow liberalism in Maycomb, Alabama.
adicionada por LT_Ammar | editarThe New Yorker, Malcolm Gladwell
 
There are some improbable and sentimental moments in the story, but there are also great moments of laughter that belong to memory and a novelist's hand... Miss Lee's original characters are people to cherish in this winning first novel by a fresh writer with something significant to say, South and North.

Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.
People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for.
They're certainly entitled to think that, and they're entitled to full respect for their opinions, 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.
Not from, but about To Kill a Mockingbird, with apologies:

Monroeville, Alabama
January, 1966

Editor, The News Leader:

Recently I have received echoes down this way of the Hanover County School Board’s activities, and what I’ve heard makes me wonder if any of its members can read.

Surely it is plain to the simplest intelligence that “To Kill a Mockingbird” spells out in words of seldom more than two syllables a code of honor and conduct, Christian in its ethic, that is the heritage of all Southerners. To hear that the novel is “immoral” has made me count the years between now and 1984, for I have yet to come across a better example of doublethink.

I feel, however, that the problem is one of illiteracy, not Marxism. Therefore I enclose a small contribution to the Beadle Bumble Fund that I hope will be used to enroll the Hanover County School Board in any first grade of its choice.
