READ FOR BOOKCLUB
Chosen by Nadine
A 1960 novel which won the Pulitzer Prize and has been named one of the best novels of all time. The young narrator’s warmth and humour are offset by the racial and societal injustices she observes.
⚈ “I loved this book. I think as with a lot of the classics as soon as you start reading them you realise why they are a classic. And also you ask yourself why you haven’t read it until now!” – Nadine
⚈ “A great read – can you say anything but? I also really enjoyed the research on Harper Lee & her mystique. Also interesting was the controversy around whether the story was in fact written by Truman Capote.” – Suzy
⚈ “This book should be read by everyone without exception. There is much to relate to and learn from, especially the message of morality and the search to be free – whatever it is you are searching to be free of. It focuses on the idea of right and wrong, and this is portrayed in every character, from the courtroom trial to the young children playing freely around the neighbourhood, to the mysterious Boo Radley. And it’s these themes that make the book accessible and affecting for every reader. This book has a reputation which is deserved.” – Rachel
