Wonderful to re-read this seemingly simple tale of a boy and girl growing up in small town Alabama in the 1930’s I was gripped and entranced all over again by the wonderful characters e.g. Miss Maudie, and the school children, each reflecting the expected familial trait known to all the inhabitants of the town. The dry humour still made me laugh, as did the ‘ham’ scene. And I was enraged and moved as before by the central story of the trial and Boo Radley.
I’d forgotten just how good it was.
