Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee REVIEW by: Shaun Curran

download (11)

Having first read To Kill a Mockingbird in high school, I was not sure what to expect with the sequel. The hype around the novel was so great, though, that I had to read it.

If you are expecting something better than Mockingbird, you are in for a disappointment. However, if you are looking to get acquainted with old characters, by all means, give it a read.

A grown-up but not necessarily mature Scout returns home to take care of her ailing father, Atticus. It is the 1950’s, and it is a time of great social upheaval in the southern town of Maycomb, Alabama. Firmly believing that her father is a stalwart defender of justice, she is appalled to find her father is not who he seems. During her stay in Maycomb, Scout learns that, deep down inside, there are many people who will continue to hold on to their prejudices despite changing times.
