One of the best writers of our time, or of any time, Harper Lee soars among any in her work.

I think it is truly the "great American novel" - but I wouldn't tell
her that, from what I read of her,
attempts to say how much the book
has meant to you only tick her off!
Strange attitude of gratitude!

I do so admire her 'saying what she had to say' and then stopping there, since she was comfortable with it. And keeping out of the public eye, there's a great deal of strength in a person who can turn away from the noxious, clinging strands of fame...

I read this book over 40 years ago, in 1968 while at high school. We knew little of discrimination. This great book gave our 7th grade minds a look at the ugly world of prejudice. We did not like it then and I do not like it now. If I were to recommend a book to anyone to read it is this one. Why would you write another book when at your first attempt you contrived a timeless masterpiece? It is nearly 50 years since publication, my lifetime. By all means congratulate Harper Lee, but realise it is a book for today written some years ago, and concieve of a time when privacy was respected.

We need more books and more people like Haper Lee. If her book seems "overly moralistic", that is because we are sorely lacking morals today. Happy Birthday, Harper Lee.

I am Darla from Holley, New York. The ideas and values my students learned from "To Kill a Mockingbird" are the most important lessons they learned from our English class and ,I dare say, from all their studies.

Never underestimate the power of great ideas written with powerful words.

To Kill a Mockingbird remains one of the greatest feats in American (if not world) literature.
