'Shoot all the Bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a Mockingbird.' Atticus Finch gives this advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of this classic novel - a black man charged with attacking a white girl. Through the eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Lee explores the issues of race and class in the Deep South of the 1930s with compassion and humor. She also creates one of the great heroes of literature in their father, whose lone struggle for justice pricks the conscience of a town steeped in prejudice and hypocrisy.

4.5 Ein Klassiker, der diese Bezeichnung wirklich verdient
„To Kill a Mockingbird“ von Harper Lee ist vermutlich eines der Bücher, die am häufigsten in anderen Büchern erwähnt und zitiert werden.
