I am a creative writer that has a unique point of view on everything. My opinion may not be the same as yours but that's what keeps everything interesting. How boring the world would be if we were all the same.

Book Description

From Harper Lee comes a landmark new novel set two decades after her beloved Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece, To Kill a Mockingbird.

Maycomb, Alabama. Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch—”Scout”—returns home from New York City to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise’s homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town, and the people dearest to her. Memories from her childhood flood back, and her values and assumptions are thrown into doubt. Featuring many of the iconic characters from To Kill a Mockingbird, Go Set a Watchman perfectly captures a young woman, and a world, in painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past—a journey that can only be guided by one’s own conscience.

Written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor, and effortless precision—a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. It not only confirms the enduring brilliance of To Kill a Mockingbird, but also serves as its essential companion, adding depth, context, and new meaning to an American classic.

Pros
The book gives an insight into the authors mind. It does offer insight into how the classic came to life. It shows the power of an editor and the way that an author's mind works. It is still inspiring, however, it is difficult to read as a stand alone novel.
Cons
This book is often misunderstood and expected to be a sequel to "To Kill A Mockingbird". Instead, it is a rough draft of the classic. It was boring and unedited. The characters fall flat and it really has no personality as a book. It is not a good read as a stand alone novel.
Summary
This not a book that you are going to pick up and read easily. It is a book that you will read to get an insight into the inner workings of a classic novel. It does need some editing. There is some failure in how the characters were developed, mainly because she just was not finished writing. It was not something she intended to be published. The author faces some of the challenges that were present in the 1950's. It opens your eyes to what was going on in the time that it was looked down upon to have a mixed relationship. The things that happened could have happened anywhere, which is what makes the book a classic. It does shine the light on real events. It is worth noting that had the author really wanted the book to be published, she probably would have put more effort into polishing in up. The fact that she left it as it, with very little editing, shows that she probably did not mean for it to become public. It is worth reading for any To Kill A Mockingbird fans because it shows the background of where the book came from.
