Blurb

The unforgettable novel of a childhood in a sleepy Southern town and the crisis of conscience that rocked it, To Kill A Mockingbird became both an instant bestseller and a critical success when it was first published in 1960. It went on to win the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 and was later made into an Academy Award-winning film, also a classic. Compassionate, dramatic, and deeply moving, To Kill A Mockingbird takes readers to the roots of human behavior - to innocence and experience, kindness and cruelty, love and hatred, humor and pathos. Now with over 18 million copies in print and translated into forty languages, this regional story by a young Alabama woman claims universal appeal. Harper Lee always considered her book to be a simple love story. Today it is regarded as a masterpiece of American literature.

The name in Portuguese is "O sol é para todos" not "por favor, não matem a cotovia".

Maybe I'm just not fond of this kind of storytelling, but 'To Kill a Mockingbird' kept my attention with exceptional writing, and did little of interest with it.

Das Buch fesselt, ohne wirklich spannend zu sein. Natürlich werden traditionelle Werte vermittelt wie Wert der Familie, Aufrichtigkeit und Anstand. Aber im Mittelpunkt steht das Thema Rassismus, obwohl etwas verklärt durch die Sicht der kindlichen Erzählerin. Man wird Teil dieser Welt beim Lesen, ein "Pageturner"!

Zwei Geschwister, Jem und Jean Louise, wachsen in der Amerikanischen Kleinstadt Maycomb County auf. Atticus, ihr Vater ist Anwalt und wird zum Pflichtverteidiger des Schwarzen Tom Robinson ernannt, welcher verdächtigt wird, ein weißes Mädchen vergewaltigt zu haben. Es geht um die Vorverurteilung Robinsons aufgrund seiner Hautfarbe, Gut und Böse und das Aufwachsen von Jean Louise mit den Widersprüchen der Amerikanischen Gesellschaft der 1930er Jahre. Nach ein paar Seiten ließ es sich auch recht flüssig im englischen Original lesen, trotzdem mir die Lust auf dieses Buch zu Schulzeiten gehörig vermiest wurde.
