From 2,475 Ratings


Harper Lee's Pulitzer prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep south—and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred, available now for the first time as an e-book.

One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the twentieth century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father-a crusading local lawyer-risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.


  • Why did I wait so long?

    By Monkey 456
    I don't know how in the world I missed reading this book when I was younger. I guess like a lot of kids in Middle School and High School I was more interested in other things like sports and friends and goofing off than reading. Every time I'd need to do a book report I'd borrow Cliff's notes and well...skip the book. A trivia question made me take up interest in Harper Lee and I decided to go back and read this book. It's no wonder it's a classic and that Harper Lee won the Pulitzer Prize. I could barely put it down and spent most of my time reading it. It took me about less than a week and I enjoyed every second of it. I'm sure I can't add anything to all of the 50 plus years worth of praise written about this book so I'll just say that I wish I had read it when I was supposed to some 35 years ago.
  • Still Engrossing

    Read Mockingbird again on a recent airplane flight and it's still one of the best stories of all time. Great for almost any age.

    By Mookielamo
    This has to be the twentieth time I have read this book. It just never gets old. The lessons learned from it are endless and lessons that will never be solved. We all go thru them and all learn from them. Hopefully what we learn will make this world a better and kinder place to live.
  • Slow start

    By S. D. Shipley
    Saw the movie years ago and never read the book until now. The book was heart wrenching, sweet and comical, I felt as though I was with them all.

  • Best book writen

    By Ambi101809
    I am a 17 year old girl. I've read this book 4 times. The first time was in the seventh grade. This book changed the way I looked at people. I've grown up with my family being strict and it opened my eyes to people. I hated books and this one made me love to read. Every time you read it you learn something new because there are so many things that are important. If you haven't read this book I highly recommend it. It's truly amazing.
  • Excellent

    By jenniferkvelez
    A classic through and through. I've been rereading this one at different points in my life and I always walk away with new perspective.

  • I loved it

    By Elijah (the batman)
    The story always kept me invested and I didn't want it to end.
  • Fantastic

    By JDFRAN14
    This book was very slow to start, but it had so many different climaxes towards the middle/end of the story that you were on the edge of your seat, and from the courthouse to the last page, you felt a sensation of community as well as fear of the unknown.
  • A Classic

    By Dwardeng
    I agree with an earlier reviewer that this novel is one the best of the 20th century. Courage and honesty beats hatred and ignorance in a tale that one feels hopeful after reading.
  • Best book i've ever read.

    By Uralilbitch_v3
    I'd keep reading this book if it went on forever. I wish it did.

  • An American Classic

    By Zach Hedrick
    This book delivers a powerful message. Hard to believe that events such as these actually took place. Highly recommend.
  • One of the Greatest!

    By ghon_fishin
    This is one of the most masterfully written stories of all time. If you enjoy reading in any way whatsoever, this classic is a must. This is as much an object lesson as it is entertainment, but what a wonderful story it is.

  • To Kill a Mockingbird

    By Wolfhead9
    I read this book for the first time in high school & loved it then. However, reading it again through the eyes of a 50+ yr old grandmother is something altogether different. I don't remember crying the first time. White folk (such as I) have come a long way, but not nearly far enough. One can only hope... This story shall remain at the top of my list of the best ever written. Thank you Miss Lee.
  • Love love love!

    Must read book
  • Good Read

    By M Lacroix
    I recall reading this book in high school (mid-90's) for English class. It's touted as one of the Great American Literary works. Needless, to say, before purchasing on iTunes I'd forgotten what this book was all about. Glad to have reread it, (though it is extremely slow in the beginning-first several chapters), because it's about racism, socioeconomic divides, life in a small town and how it's true that children are an extension of their parents/environments (for the most part). Most behaviors are learned. This is a good, thought-provoking read that deals a healthy dish of karma in the end.
  • To Kill a Mockingbird

    By Tleepop
    A powerful account of gallant bravery and unwavering grace, framed by the telling of the average, but entertaining, daily events of two young siblings set in a small southern town.
  • Me no likey

    By Tiler phase
    Me no likey. It was boring until like the last 50 pages, and the beginning was extremely confusing. And, to be honest one of the worst books I've been forced to read for class.

    By Chrisred10
    To me this is one of the best books I've ever read. Though it was hard to understand in the beginning, it was worth the time to understand it fully and picture it. I would totally recommend this to anyone I meet. Buy this book if you have spare time!
  • Changed the way I see things

    By DBZcam
    This book really changed the way I see the world, it really makes you think like a kid would see the world as to an adult would.
  • To Kill A Mockingbird

    By Hfs14
    At first, I didn't like this book, but now that I have finished it, I realize how much it made me think. This book challenged my faith in my Heavenly Father. This book was great and I highly recommend everyone reading it. The only thing about it was there was quite a bit of cussing in it😖.
  • Great classic
