Beautifully narrated by actress Sissy Spacek, Harper Lee's Pulitzer Prize-winning literary masterpiece is unforgettable. Capturing an ephemeral moment in Southern history, it explores uncomfortable truths about justice and the human condition.
'Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit 'em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.'
A lawyer's advice to his children as he defends the real mockingbird of Harper Lee's classic novel - a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. Through the young eyes of Scout and Jem Finch, Harper Lee explores with exuberant humour the irrationality of adult attitudes to race and class in the Deep South of the '30s. The conscience of a town steeped in prejudice, violence, and hypocrisy is pricked by the stamina of one man's struggle for justice. But the weight of history will tolerate only so much.
To Kill a Mockingbird is a coming-of-age story, an antiracist novel, a historical drama of the Great Depression and a sublime example of the Southern writing tradition. Out now as an unabridged audiobook, narrated by Sissy Spacek.
One of the most notable works of dramatic fiction ever written, the Pulitzer Prize-winning To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is here in a complete and unabridged classic American literature audiobook narrated by the brilliant Sissy Spacek in celebration of its 50th anniversary.

You may find you have to pause every so often as you listen to reflect on the overall significance this book has had as a demonstration of human achievements in literature.

One of the greats.
A truly wonderful book
The book and characters are bought to life in this audible edition.
In some ways it is like the book Help with the southern attitude to the African Americans.
This is the only book that I have listened to by Sissy and the fact that she was reading the book encouraged me to buy it. I was not let down by her performance
I listened to most of the book and then watched the DVD with Gregory Peck and then re stared the book to catch anything I had missed
A remarkable book considering it is the only book Harper Lee wrote
