Publisher's Summary

Go Set a Watchman is set during the mid-1950s and features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some 20 years later.
Scout (Jean Louise Finch) has returned to Maycomb from New York to visit her father, Atticus. She is forced to grapple with issues both personal and political as she tries to understand both her father's attitude toward society and her own feelings about the place where she was born and spent her childhood.
An instant classic.

Fantastic book, challenging a really hard subject

This is not so easy to read as Mockingbird but it tackles the subject of racism in a really different way and gives a "moment in time" perspective of issues in the Deep South. My experience and study of these issues is limited but the Book and film "12 years a slave", the movie "Lincoln" and then both of the Harper Lee novels give a really powerful overview. Thanks Harper Lee for sharing this book, you are a wonderful writer.

Interesting and beautiful in a different way

First of all Reese Witherspoon is brilliant!
Secondly this book needs to be read stand alone and apart from TKAMB which is hard to do. There are characters common to both obviously bit it's sometimes easy to see where the chunks of story were commuted to TKAMB and sometimes they haven't been. Easy to see why this was not palatable to the publisher at the time and makes Harper Lee all the more interesting because of it. All that being said, I love To Kill A Mockingbird so much that I can't ever like this one as much!
