This category is undoubtedly, irrevocably won by To Kill A Mockingbird (Harper Lee). I only read it this year in my English class, and I deeply mourn the fact that I didn't read it sooner. This novel is one of those mind-blowing, sweet, subtle, strong narratives that leaves you with a new perception of the world, with a new understanding of yourself and of others. It is a beautiful, beautiful thing. In my opinion, it is definitely one that should be read by every person alive, and it is my clear choice for Best Classic.
Have you read To Kill A Mockingbird? If so, what did you think? And if not, will you read it in the future?
