To Kill a Mockingbird

Updated: 7 Sep 2020
Harper Lee's classic novel of a lawyer in the Deep South defending a black man charged with the rape of a white girl. One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has earned many distinctions since its original publication in 1960. It won the Pulitzer Prize, has been translated into more than forty languages, sold more than thirty million copies worldwide, and been made into an enormously popular movie. Most recently, librarians across the country gave the book the highest of honors by voting it the best novel of the twentieth century.

"I remember reading this book and then going to class and not being able to shut up about it. I read it in eighth or ninth grade, and I was trying to push the book off on other kids. So it makes sense to me that now I have a book club, because I have been doing that since probably this book."

Like, I remember the first novel that really made an impact on me was To Kill a Mockingbird, which is an obvious one." Unlike most of us, who were reading the book as a requirement for English class, Ratajkowski was reading it for fun at 8-years-old. "My mom was really into it and she had given it to me," she explains.

As for literary fiction, it was Huckleberry Finn and To Kill A Mockingbird. Again, kids in adult situations always fascinated me.

I think a good book can change your life. I think To Kill a Mockingbird is a book that did that.

Contrary to popular belief, To Kill a Mockingbird isn't the only book Niall has ever read. At least not anymore... "It’s changed but up until three years ago it was the only book I’d ever read. It was for English [class] so I had to read it. To sound intellectual anytime I got asked in an interview if I’d read books before, I’d say ‘yeah, To Kill A Mockingbird’. [Since then] I’ve read a couple of sports biographies.”

"My favorite book has already been made into a movie, and that's (Harper Lee's) 'To Kill a Mockingbird.' It's perfection as it is. And also I don't want to say (another one), because if it's a book that I love, I don't want someone else to find it and then make it into a movie before I can."
