    Interesting take on beloved characters

    I began reading this book with much enthusiasm. Scout and Atticus Finch are beloved characters to many people, and I loved these characters when I first read "To Kill A Mockingbird" as a teenager and of course when I later saw the wonderful film. "Go Set a Watchman", however, is quite perplexing. One wonders how Harper Lee wrote this book before "Mockingbird", because the characters of Scout and Atticus are, I think, only meaningful if you've already met them in "Mockingbird". I do not see how "Watchman" could have possibly succeeded before "Mockingbird" was published (perhaps that's what the author's publisher was thinking too when Lee initially sought to have it published . . .). Jean Louise's horror at is discovering things about her father which disturb her makes for an interesting story, and the theme of the book is interesting too; it takes the reader back to the early civil rights period in the South and to the thinking of Southerners about these issues. While many reviewers of "Watchman" have not rated the book highly, I enjoyed the read and found it interesting to see Scout as an adult. Is the book worth all the hype? Likely not, and I wonder if it would ever have been published now if it were not for the fact that "To Kill a Mockingbird" is such a beloved novel.

    Fantastic Read

    If you are reading this book thinking it's just the same as To Kill A Mockingbird you will be very disapointed. It is nothing like it. It is a fantastic book on its own. If you give it a chance and an open mind you will learn something from it and walk away satisfied.

    Go Set A Watchman

    It's not as good asTo Kill a Mockingbird but how could it be? There were too many comparisons in the press. Read it with an open mind and I think you'll enjoy it

    Intense

    Not as well written as "To Kill a Mockingbird" but then it was Lee's first attempt at writing a book. It is different than TKAM; a choppier read. Here, she discovers her father's feet are made oif very crumbly clay. Perhaps it is just as well this book came out now, rather than when it was originally written. Lee covers overt racism and sex out of wedlock. Good social commentary written by a white woman during an incredibly tense time in America's Deep South.

    I have mixed feelings

    This book had me emotionally all over the place. I was happy, then shocked, then sad, then mad. Repeat, Repeat. At one point I wished I had not read it because I had placed To Kill a Mockingbird on such a high pedestal. This was written before TKAM but it takes place about 20 years later. I don't necessarily recommend this book to people but I do think it is an eye opening book that some will like and some will not like at all.
