An historic literary event: the publication of a newly discovered novel, the earliest known work from Harper Lee, the beloved, best-selling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic To Kill a Mockingbird.

Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.

Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some 20 years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch - Scout - struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her.

Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee's enduring classic. Moving, funny, and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.

The book was handed to me as a follow up from a quick discussion with a colleague. I decided to read it straightaway as I don’t like borrowing books from someone and keeping them for a long time. I honestly didn’t know what to expect: the title is ambiguous and the hype around the time of its releas...

5.0 Go set a Watchman Harper Lee
An absolutely beautiful book. Harper lee's Go set a Watchman isn't quite as good as to Kill a mocking bird, but it's totally "The book" to lay the final bricks to what is a well loved book by all generation's. In go set a Watchman, we meet Cheeky, Fesity Very opinionated "scout" Again. The girl th...

Okay. Uh. Where to begin... Yikes? I swore I wouldn't read this, because I'm still pretty sure an ailing Harper Lee was manipulated into publishing it. But then it popped up right when I was looking for my next read and... well, here we are. If you think of this as an interesting first draft (wh...

The first thing that you may notice is that my rating is missing. It's deliberate. How can you rate a "book" that should have not been? I have to reiterate what a lot of reviewers have already said ad nauseam. If you hold To Kill a Mockingbird dear, and not just because it is a wonderful piece of l...
