Harper Lee has been significant to the lives of almost all avid readers. It was her book ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’ that reminded me of a world beyond the reality, a world that spoke of the harsh truth.
The book was a milestone for her and also all her readers. And hence, the news of her death was not easy.
To know that your favourite author has passed away, makes you feel sad.
Words don’t compare to what she was to her readers. She was not just a writer who happened to write a classic.
She was a voice that stayed along.
She was an inspiration. Atticus Finch was our idol. She was what we wanted to be. This is what her book did to you. It made you a part of the story, just as though it was your reality.
Her death is a loss that we will take time to get out of.
