I liked this novel more than I liked To Kill a Mockingbird which is supposed to be the first book in this series. I think that’s because I understood the characters more and their actions and attitudes seemed to fit them. I read this book for book club, and listening to the discussions surrounding t...

In sum, "GO SET A WATCHMAN" bears out Thomas Wolfe's saying 'you can't go home again.' Jean Louise (better known as 'Scout' from Harper Lee's best-selling novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird") journeys back from NYC (where she has lived for some time) to her family home in Maycomb County, Alabama. It is t...

I have one good thing to say about this: it's not, technically, canon. No stars because I don't know how to rate a ghost book, one that should not have been.

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...

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...

But she finds a different world than the one she remembers...A long awaited sequel – of sorts – to "To Kill A Mockingbird".

Some parts of this book were really hard to handle. I was shocked, but then those parts really resonated with me. Sometimes we do build people up so much that seeing that they aren't perfect is heartbreaking. Overall this was pretty damn good. I loved the flashbacks. Some parts made me smile an...

Starts out excruciatingly slow, and is marred by poor editing (Is the school headmaster Mr Tuffett or Ms Muffett?) It picks itself up a bit in the final third and becomes a nice but somewhat uninspiring read. Mild spoilers:Others have mentioned how their biggest disappointment is the relegation of A...
