Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee

Sigh. This is supposedly one of the first drafts of To Kill a Mockingbird before Harper Lee and her editor, Aaron Stell, polished it into the masterpiece that that book is. This book is far from a masterpiece and is obviously a money grab by publishers. It is the story of Jean Louise Finch (Scout) who returns home at 26-years-old from New York for a visit and discovers—no spoiler surprise except for those who’ve read nothing else about this book—her father, Atticus, is a bigot. The “book” has crazy pacing, oddly developed and undeveloped sections (explained by it being a draft), and a reveal which unbelievably affects Jean Louise’s actions.

Gwenamon says: I’ll remember Harper Lee for her masterpiece, and her sound judgement in not wanting to publish this
