To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Read by Sissy Spacek
If you’re like me, you read this book in high school because you had to but don’t remember all the details. Harper Lee’s great novel is considered a classic for good reason — it’s powerful and gripping and deals with timeless issues of growing up and prejudice. And listening to this book is incredible – Sissy Spacek is the perfect narrator, her voice quirky and passionate and very believable as the young girl, Scout, who is wise beyond her years. Even if you’ve already read this book, it’s definitely worth a re-listen. I found myself looking forward to my bus commute so that I could tune back in to Scout’s world.
