What I'm Waiting On...
Author: Harper Lee
Publication Date: July 14, 2015
Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.
Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some twenty years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch—Scout—struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her.
Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee’s enduring classic. Moving, funny and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.
Why I'm Waiting...
To Kill a Mockingbird is just one of those books that sticks with you no matter how long it's been since you read it. I'm hoping that this sequel lives up to it and that I love it just as much as I loved Ms. Lee's first book.
Am I bit skeptical? Yes, but really... who isn't at this point? I don't doubt that she wrote it like some people, but it's been decades since she published a book. Any reader would be skeptical at this point. But I really, really want to check in with some of my favorite literary characters, and I am one hundred percent confident that I'll end up enjoying it.
