#1 New York Times Bestseller " Go Set a Watchman is such an important book, perhaps the most important novel on race to come out of the white South in decades." -- New York Times A landmark novel by Harper Lee, set two decades after her beloved Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, To Kill a Mockingbird.

Draft was never meant to be published, but still a good Harper Lee story.

TKAM is one of my favorite novels of all time. Considering the situation regarding the publishing of this book, I was hesitant to go about reading it, but I decided to give it a go. I finished it in two days. You can tell that this was written before Mockingbird, but Lee still is able to get a compelling story across to the reader and tell a story of a young woman going back to her home in the South and see how the world she thought she grew up in was not the world she came back to. Would recommend.

Book was damaged!

It would help if the book would have been mailed in a box instead of a plastic bag. The book edges are dented and the dust jacket is torn. Not what I expected when I selected “like new.”

Don't use this as a judge of Lee's writing.

Harper Lee did not want this book published. Despite her wish, the massive success of TKAM prompted her publishers to put it out anyways. I will not read this book because it was not intended to be read.

Another disappointment

Harper Lee once again disappoints with this one. However, I was able to finish this one vs her first one. The story line was drawn out longer than it needed to be and there were too many unnecessary details in the story.

Couldn't Get To The End...

I was excited to read this since "To Kill A Mockingbird" is such a classic. I couldn't even get to the end of the book. It was very hard to follow, and quite frankly just boring to me. Unfortunately, I have no desire to go back and finish to try reading it again.
