Résumé de l'éditeur

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 a digital audiobook.
One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than 40 languages, sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the 20th 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.

Gripping but Flawed!

This famous novel is set before World War II in the Southern United States and deals with the issue of race relations.

Well-structured and enthralling, it disturbingly presents two major flaws that may prove fatal to many readers:

• the narrator is a small girl who perceives reality with her own eyes but does not at all write in a juvenile style; it is never explained why this story is written or to whom it is addressed;
• the dénouement occurs as two small children walk home from a school show, in the dark, by themselves; it is not convincingly explained why their guardians did not attend or at least accompany them there and back.

Overall, the interest of this work lies in the fact that it is so well known rather than its intrinsic qualities.
