To Kill a Mocking Bird

- Harper Lee

I have just begun to read this book. Hardly read a chapter or two, but I am already mesmerized by it. Very eloquent and expressive writing. It’s like a toffee; very slooowly it melts, and spreads, within your soul. Sweet. The sweetness grips you, stirs you from within, just in the first chapter. The women compared to teacakes, the descriptions of daily life, the children. All so simple and beautiful. I felt I was actually in Maycomb county.
It communes with your spirit.
