Reviews for To Kill a Mockingbird


AudioFile Reviews 1997 October
Roses Prichard's masterful narration of Lee's classic novel, originally produced for Books on Tape in 1991, has been repackaged by Audio Partners for the consumer market. Prichard's skill and talents are evident; all the characters sound true and absolutely real. Listeners hear Scout's developing wisdom and maturity as the story progresses. Prichard achieves the monumental task of creating--and maintaining--authentic voices for a diverse group of characters while infusing the story with emotional resonance. This stunning production captures the listener and doesn't let go. M.A.M. Copyright 1999 AudioFile Reviews

To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee's debut novel, won the Pulitzer Prize when it was first published over 40 years ago and went on to win a firm place in the hearts of millions of readers and a firm place as a contemporary classic. Newly released on CD, this unabridged recording, narrated in fine Southern style by Roses Prichard, is a welcome reminder that the sweetness, humor and compassion that gave this regional story of growing up in a small Alabama town in the 1930s such universal appeal are still fresh, and that the attitudes toward race explored here still resonate.
