Book Forty: To Kill a Mockingbird

To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee

It's nice to re-read books from one's youth and be reminded that they're just as good as you remembered them to be. Nothing's worse than having your precious memories dashed to bits when you return to a once-loved book. Sure, some of the ideas seemed a bit simple this time around, yet that's probably the beauty of To Kill a Mockingbird--seeing a very complicated world through children's eyes. Oh, and I think I finally get the metaphor of Boo Radley. Yeah, I'm slow like that.
