Harper Lee won the 1960 Pulitzer Prize for this book. I read this book the spring of 2009 and I really liked it. It was interesting although it was difficult for me getting through part one of the book because I found it slow. Part 2 was better, it really worth continue reading. It is a classic of the modern American Literature. I think it is now read around schools in most part of the world.
This novel is about racial equality and injustice in the south of the USA. A white lawyer defending an African-American unfairly accused of rape by a young white woman.
I learnt a lot from it. This book has got a lot to teach the world.
