To Kill a Mockingbird vs The Given Day
This is it, the final championship game. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee is facing off with The Given Day by Dennis Lehane.
As I have said previously, I haven't read either of these books, though I do feel that both warrant further attention in that department. In both stories, the characters are living in a time when social mores are changing. Equality between colours of skin is still a major issue. Events that impact one person are not isolated to that person, but affect entire families and communities. Can there be justice in an unjust society?
Have you read both these books? Please leave a comment and let me know how these two books compare.
