the greatest novel ever written. my opinion, of course, but i firmly stand by it. i finished it again last week. i'm not sure how many times i've read it now, but i believe i'm well into the double digits. every time i read it i laugh, cry, and gain some new insight. if you haven't read it, you should. and if you only read it back in high school, you should give it another go. "to kill a mockingbird" is a social commentary, a work of art, and a literary gift.
