Inhaltsangabe

Harper Lee’s Pulitzer prize-winning masterwork of honor and injustice in the deep south - and the heroism of one man in the face of blind and violent hatred, available now for the first time as a digital audiobook.

One of the best-loved stories of all time, To Kill a Mockingbird has been translated into more than 40 languages, sold more than 30 million copies worldwide, served as the basis for an enormously popular motion picture, and was voted one of the best novels of the 20th century by librarians across the country. A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father - a crusading local lawyer - risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.

©1988 Harper Lee (P)2006 HarperCollins Publishers

Kritikerstimmen

"It's good to be reminded of the power wielded by this classic of American literature. As the introductory music fades and Sissy Spacek begins her narration, we immediately enter the small town in the Deep South where all the timeless issues of kindness and cruelty, inclusion and prejudice are played out in a story told by a little girl named Scout. Instead of offering a range of accents, Spacek reads the story entirely in her own, or Scout's, voice. The choice works, for the book is written from Scout’s point of view, and Spacek has just the right level of Southern accent for easy listening. This is an unforgettable story well told. 2007 Audies Award Winner." (AudioFile magazine)

"Atticus Finch is a timeless American hero who has been played by the likes of Gregory Peck in film and Jeff Daniels on the stage. But in Sissy Spacek’s narration of To Kill a Mockingbird, it’s Harper Lee’s narrator, Scout, who becomes the listener’s moral guiding light and closest confidante. You forget you’re listening to the voice of an adult, so wholly do Spacek’s Southern rhythms embody the young tomboy as she witnesses the racial injustices of the Depression-era South unfold before her." (The New York Times Book Review)

Classic that is as good as everyone is saying!

Been meant to read/listen to this book for ages and finally got around to it worried it would not be as good as everyone is saying. But it was!

Took me an hour or so to get used to the south state dialect (English being my third language). But once I tuned in it was just as fabulous as everyone is saying. V

I love it!

The story, told by little Scout finch is fantastic! It shows a world with racism, strange people an a very gracious but also teaching father, from the perspective of a elementary school visiting girl.
The Reader always changes voices for different characters, what makes the listening so much easier! I live how the writer uses slang, jokes and stuff like that to make it more authentic.
The book is very good for people who want to improve theyr English skills (like me)
Listen to it /Read it, I promise you will not regret!

Die Schule halt

Ich musste das Buch lesen und habe das Hörbuch dabei gehört und kann es jedem Schüler empfehlen der in der englischen Sprache Hilfe benötigt, da das Lesetempo aus dem Hörbuch mit dem eigenen sich synchronisiert und auch von der Betonung der Erzählerin der Text wesentlich zum Verständnis beiträgt. Inhaltlich ganz gut nur zieht sich der mittelteil sehr, erst ab Kapitel 20 wirklich spannend (für mein Empfinden)

Just fantastic!

Halten Sie die Hörbuch-Ausgabe von To Kill a Mockingbird für besser als das Buch?

I have not read the book.

Welche Figur hat Ihnen am besten gefallen? Warum?

Mr. Finch and Scout Finch. Mr. Finch for his wisdom, and Scout because she saw things as they were from a child's view.

Haben Sie vorher schon ein Hörbuch mit Sissy Spacek gehört? Wie würden Sie beide vergleichen?

No

Hat dieses Hörbuch Sie emotional stark bewegt? Mussten Sie laut z.B. lachen, weinen, zweifeln, etc.?

Mostly smiling, a bit sad for Arthur and anger at the jury.

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Put themselves in the shoes of the people in those days

A classic that well deserves its fame

Several tricky and not easily answered questions about race relations, justice, prejudice all wrapped up in a great story told with a lot of sensitivity, through the eyes of a child. Perfectly read, it was delightful to listen to it!

Ein Klassiker mit ernstem Hintergrund

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an To Kill a Mockingbird gefallen?

Aus der Sicht eines Kindes: Scout Finch die Erzählerin dieser Geschichte, kann nicht verstehen, warum in den 1930er der Rassenhass die Menschen verändert. Sehr feinfühlige und hintergründige Geschichte mit einem Plädoyer für die Gleichheit der Menschen.

Very enjoyable

Masterpiece, everybody should read it in some way or another.
Sissy Spacek does a splendid job and you really get the feeling Scout Finch narrated the story.
