My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Jean Louise (Scout) discovers her Father is human and not the god like figure she idolized.
"........you confused your Father with God. You never saw him as a man with a man's heart and a man's failings."
Really don't understand all the people who are complaining that this book blackens Atticus Finch's name, as his brother (Uncle Jack) points out Atticus Fitch is the same man, the man who lives by the law.
"...The law is what he lives by. He'll do his best to prevent someone from beating up somebody else, then he'll turn around and try to stop no less than the Federal Government --- just like you, child. You turned and tackled no less than your own tin god -- but remember this, he'll always do it by the letter and by the spirit of the law. That's the way he lives."
I just wish it hadn't taken so long for this book to be published. It's a shame that Harper Lee is only a two book author as she writes so well.
