I recently read To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I had never read this book and had sometimes felt I should. I am glad I did. I don't think I have ever seen the movie all the way through, either, but what bits of the movie I remember prove that the director clearly knew what he was doing, and the casting of the characters was spot on.
As always, the book delivers much more depth and insight than the movie can but I really think they got it right. I also think Harper Lee knew exactly what she was doing.
If you have not read this book I urge you to do so now. An excellent read.

"Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy... but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird."
