To Kill a Mockingbird
by Harper Lee
I read Go Set a Watchman on publication last year and, despite the controversy, thoroughly enjoyed hearing Scout’s voice again. On seeing that my daughter had finished reading To Kill a Mockingbird on holiday, I was delighted to scoop it up in her wake and immerse myself in the deep South once more.
Re-reading a story simply for the pleasure of revisiting sentences which made you smile or weep is an absolute joy. Familiarity only heightens the enjoyment.
