Go Set A Watchman

9-2-15 (1)Finally! I was finally able to read Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee a couple of weeks ago. It seems a bit hasty, but I have been eager to read this story since I first heard about it being published. I read a review of the book on Modern Mrs Darcy before reading it, and was determined not to read it as a sequel. However, while it may not have been written as a sequel, I couldn’t read it as anything else. MMD said that the image of Atticus is shattered by GSAW and to read it as a sequel of To Kill a Mockingbird was not a good idea. I do not agree, I think his image is still intact if not a bit more clear. He accepts the reality of the situation and acts accordingly. He sees that he can do more good by being a part of what is happening in the town than standing outside of it and fighting.
Anyway, I don’t want to give anything away. But if your want my opinion, read it as a sequel. Scout is just as feisty and interesting, if not more so. I definitely recommend!

    It can be read apart I suppose, but there are quite a few references to her childhood and I think it rounds out the story more. I hope you enjoy it!
