To Kill a Mockingbird

A novel, a Pulitzer Prize winner, To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic that has lived on for decades and no doubt will continue on its journey.

As irrelevant as it seems to be in some ways in our modern times in others it is equally relevant. Those of us who are educated and against prejudices in any form will recognize the blatant hatred of the good people of Maycomb.

Lies and ignorance are responsible for an innocent man's death. Has anything changed in over 50 years? We are each living the 'correct' life, the only way one should live, the right way. When someone strays outside those boundaries, the prejudices, the judging, steps in to see that their ways are put back in alignment or pay the price.

In the south in the 60's a colored man walked on egg shells. Most knew that their lives were balanced precariously between living some kind of anonymous existence and ending up with a noose around their necks. For Tom Robinson, it was the ultimate in absurdity when he was falsely accused of the heinous crime of rape and brutality, a crime impossible for a man with his disabilities.

Justice is somewhat served when the town's odd recluse rescues the storyteller, Scout, and her brother Jem from the real evil that infects Maycomb.

I rate "To Kill a Mockingbird" 5 out of 5 stars.
