Synopsis - Set during the great depression, six-year-old Scout Finch tells the tale of Boo Radley, a local recluse. Her story becomes interwoven with the story of her father, Atticus Finch, a lawyer defending a black man on trial for rape.
My review - I've read this book around about four times now. I love it. The characters are easy to fall in love with, especially Atticus Finch. I feel like he's one of the greatest characters ever written.
The story is told through the eyes of a child, making something so awful, so innocent, and by doing so making the injustice that much worse.
It is beautifully written, Lee is able to transport us to Maycomb with so few words. Everytime I open this book, I feel like I am stepping into their small town, and like it is welcoming me with open arms, like I am there with Jem and Scout.. It's truly wonderful.
My review - 5/5
