Trish I love your Twilight Zone Episode comment...so true. I love to read and I wish that is all I could do for days and days. Sometimes I get to wrapped up in it and have to come back to reality.

Ebby no WAY!! I too was affected by that same Twilight Zone episode! I got so freaked out that I made DYMO labels of all of my book titles, and attached them to their spines so that I could find them if I was struck with a sudden blindness (also, it didn't help that I was reading a biography of Annie Sullivan at the same time). It never occurred to me that if I were blind, it wouldn't do me much good to locate my books through my ingenious (I thought) labeling system...

Charlette I remember that episode as well, I cried because his glasses were broken

yuna kudo I agree to your quote from page 87!
Though he was not successful on the court case, he still made a difference in the society in one way or the other. Though the town folk were still afraid to be different, or to make a difference, they were touched by his words, his actions, and his courage and respected him for the things he did for Tom Robinson

Ellie Very good review! But, the quote about where "we had given him nothing, and it made me sad" is on page 373. Just letting you know.


message 6: by Sherry (new)

Sherry Mabry This was one of my favorite quotes out of the entire book. I wrote it down and keep it close by.

Houston I double checked my citation, but in my copy it is on page 320. I must have a different edition than yours.

Brady Thomas I think this is a very good representation of how addicting this book was. I couldn't put it down.


message 16: by Jeanne (new)

Jeanne Houde I've read this book in my teens, my thirties and my fifties. Each time I read it I find a character or a paragraph that holds new meaning. This is the only book I've read more than twice and now in my sixties I will read again. This is absolutely my favorite book.

Jeff Mckinley This is my all- time favorite book to read. Classic read. It moving well thought out and touches you like no other can. I can read this story over and ok very. The movie was done in a fine manner also. Just can't say enough. Probably the only 5 star rating I will ever give out.
