Set during the middle of 1950s, ‘Go Set a Watchman’ brings on to life several characters from her famous novel ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ yet again after a long span of two decades.
The novel begins with Scout (Jean Louis Finch) returning from New York to Maycomb to visit her father Atticus. The crux of the novel lies in her attempt to get in terms with some personal as well as political issues as she tries to understand her affinity to her birthplace—a place where she spent her entire childhood—and her father’s attitude towards the society.
An instant classic, as referred to by many, ‘Go Set a Watchman’ contains the same humour and refined verse that is true to Lee’s style. Published on July, 2015 by Random House Publisher, this book is available in hard cover version.

All the reviews I read about this book were written by people who did not bother reading it to the end. It is nearly as good as the first.

Throughout this book, delighting in her storytelling, I felt sad that the great media crush “To Kill a Mockingbird” received apparently frightened her so badly she never wrote another book. Great writers should write, write about anything, and nothing should stop them. With that in mind, the book has an air of tragedy to it, but that’s OK. Real life is tinged with tragedies everyday. This is not a book for escapists, that’s for sure.

To Kill a Mockingbird is an all-time classic that everyone should read. Go Set A Watchman is an interesting tool that helps show how Lee developed the characters, setting, storyline and message of the novel. It is valuable in that respect, and is worth reading, but does not hold its own as an independent novel, because that’s not what it is.

A fitting sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman has all the charm of the simple story telling of Harper Lee. It shows how a person forms individual opinions when he/she slowly grows up into an adult and how it is the duty of the elders to guide and help the growing child to develop into an adult with unbiased thinking and a strong personality. A good, funny read. Enjoyable all along.

Excellent delivery by Oldbook store. The book cover quality and pages were excellent. Now the story, it is the sequel to the book to kill a mockingbird. Jean Louise finch or scout narrates the story. It is long after Tom Robinson incident…… A good read in short not as long as it’s predecessor.
