To Kill A Mockingbird

by Penny

Atticus Finch is Gregory Peck as air is to breathe. I learned how to love & be loved, by his powerful words and non judgemental way of living. I have loved To Kill A Mockingbird since I read it at school at 12. As a child I hated reading and it was the first book I ever read on my own, cover to cover. I loved Atticus then and even more when I saw Gregory Peck BE Atticus. I fall in love with him again and again – whenever I re-read the book or watch the DVD (which would have to be more than 50 times! I’m sure Harper Lee would have been so proud when you brought her beloved Atticus to life.
