  • Re read ( by audio) this summer for the first time in 25 + years. Got sooo much more out of it this time. 5 stars ✨ no doubt

  • I’ve read it many times–probably my favorite book ever. It’s required reading in many schools. The movie is excellent, too.

  • I read it in highschool and it was a great book! Too bad a lot of people are still trying to get it banned.

    • There were also “bad words” and “derogatory” terms that might traumatize children…😨

    • I work in a library and I have had to research why lots if books have been banned. My favorite was The Diary of Anne Frank getting banned because it was deemed too depressing …

    • Banned for the use of a word we no longer consider appropriate. It is a shame, too, when I think of all the kids who would have loved this book but it was banned from their school for the use of a word which was common at the time of publication.

  • I’m sure I read it when I was in school. And that was a LONG time ago. I’m thinking I should read it now as an OLD adult!!!!! 😄

  • Have read it many, many times….and that’s one movie that pretty much stands up to the book….both are excellent….

  • Not at the moment but I do teach the book! Timeless classic in my opinion.

  • Read it years ago when I was 12! Loved it. It was the book that turned me on to reading.

  • One of my all time favorites shared/taught it numerous times, too.

  • around a hundred years ago I read it. I hear it is still good.LOL

  • Just re-read it this past year. More important to me now than ever before.

  • Better question: who HASN’T read this seminal work?

  • My favorite book of all time…reread it every few years. The movie always makes me cry!

  • I re-read it every few years or so. I even have a tattoo inspired by it. One of my favorites.

  • I feel like I’ve completely missed a chapter of my life somewhere. I’ve only just recently heard of this book and the second book and I’ve never heard of the movie. I mean you all could be pulling my leg right now

  • Nobody is pulling your leg. *Everyone* should read this book. And the movie is pretty darn good, too.

  • I taught this book for years and reread it every time! It is perfect in every way.

  • I read it many years ago but it is one of those books that stay alive in your mind forever. The film is excellent also.

  • I read it last year, and loved everything about it. The characters stick with you after the read. I was also able to see the classic movie and watch a local theater production at the same time.

  • wonderful book. Read it in school, and regularly every few years.

  • Going to listen on its audiobook version 🙂 will start next day preferably.

  • I like to re read it at least every other year. The book, of course, is better than the movie, but I have to say, the movie was well done, also worth watching multiple times!

  • My favorite book, read it about once a year…. enjoy! 📚

  • read some years ago and it was such an emotional reading even if I have watched the movie first

  • I taught it in 8th and 9th grade English for many years. The movie is one of the few that I would show in class after reading the book because it is so true to the book. Gregory Peck and Robert Duvall are great in it.

  • yes, years ago in HS then more recently with my women’s book group.

  • So I’m now listening to go set a watchmen performed by Reese Witherspoon. I didn’t know she did audios!!!
