It is no secret that the novel “To Kill a Mockingbird”, is one of the most influential and controversial books of all time. The depiction of Great Depression racism in the south in the perspective of a child was sure to invoke curiosity and awareness in most if not all of American scholars.
So when the publication of Harper Lee’s next book hit stores, it was a big deal. The book tells the reader the events twenty years after “To Kill a Mockingbird”, and it focuses on the differences between Scout and Atticus Finch. The reader learns the dark truth behind Atticus’s career as a lawyer, and how it affects fan favorite characters like Calpurnia.
I couldn’t stop reading this book because each chapter found a way to surprise me. It is a really good time saver and a must read for anyone who loves “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
