    Go Set a Watchman (NEW) First let me say that this book IN NO WAY affected my opinion of To Kill A Mockingbird If anything it made me love it In my mind it is even of a masterpiece from having read it's predecessor or as Harper Lee herself described it the parent of Mockingbird And Harper Lee herself has lost no respect from meThe ch

Characters Go Set a Watchman

Summary ó Go Set a Watchman 102 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 abo. Now think about this What would happen if all the Negroes in the South were suddenly given full civil rights I ll tell you There d be another Reconstruction Would you want your state governments run by people who don t know how to run em Do you want this town run by now wait a minute Willoughby s a crook we know that but do you know of any Negro who knows as much as Willoughby Zeebo d probably be Mayor of Maycomb Would you want someone of Zeebo s capability to handle the town s money We re outnumbered you know Honey you do not seem to understand that the Negroes down here are still in their childhood as a people You should know it you ve seen it all your life They ve made terrific progress in adapting themselves to white ways but they re far from it yet They were coming along fine traveling at a rate they could absorb of em voting than ever before Then the NAACP stepped in with its fantastic demands and shoddy ideas of government can you blame the South for resenting being told what to do about its own people by people who have no idea of its daily problems I understand that there are a lot of controversy and conspiracy theories regarding the publication of this book and for good reasonI read To Kill a Mockingbird in 8th grade It was class reading I watched the movie starring Gregory Peck he of the patrician demeanor he who indubitably best portrayed the noble American icon that is Atticus Finch To tell you the truth I didn t really understand the book and what it symbolized then I was in 8th grade I had arrived in the US just a few years before My command of the English was good but as with all younger teens the symbolism of the book and its significance largely escaped me I lacked the analytical skills to truly understand what it meant what a landmark it was in terms of American history In 8th grade before reading this book our class studied American history We studied slavery the Civil War We studied the ugly past of racism and segregation We studied Martin Luther King As a newly arrived immigrant this should have made an impact on me but again I was so young that I didn t truly understand the significanceIt was only later on when I was older that I understood how important this book was and how remarkable the character of Atticus Finch was He and this book is an American institution A symbol of righteousness in a past filled with racial injustice A defender of the underdogWhich is why this book this seuel to the iconic To Kill a Mockingbird is such a disappointment If I must be honest it should never have been written for in this book the shining beacon that is Atticus Finch has been grossly tarnished He has now grown old bitter and racistYes I understand that people change We all do I understand that a good lawyer can present his case regardless of his beliefs but that s not the point The point is that Atticus Finch is such an outstanding figure that it feels wrong somehow to blacken his image No pun intendedI ve seen comparisons to how this book is the most anticipated book since the release of Harry Potter Well what if JK Rowlings had released a seuel to Harry Potter in which Harry is an old grumpy man going through a mid life crisis leering at young girls at the gym cheating on his wife ignoring his childrenNobody would like that Some symbols are here to stay Some things are meant to remain the way they are Some things should remain pure The memory of To Kill a Mockingbird and that of Atticus Finch should be one of themI wish this book had been left to rot as an old forgotten manuscript in some long forgotten warehouse I want to remember Atticus Finch as a paragon Sometimes I want simplicity and I want bliss in ignorance She heard her father s voice a tiny voice talking in the warm comfortable past Gentlemen if there s one slogan in this world I believe it is this eual rights for all special privileges for noneThe one human being she had ever fully and wholeheartedly trusted had failed her the only man she had ever known to whom she could point and say with expert knowledge He is a gentleman in his heart he is a gentleman had betrayed her publicly grossly and shamelessly

Summary ó Go Set a Watchman 102 Ut 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 a painful yet necessary transition out of the illusions of the past a journey that can be guided only by one's conscience Written in the mid 1950s Go Set a Watc. Review I think this uote really encapsulates both the tone of the book and peoples feelings when reading it The audience and Scout s nostalgia for what once was is a large part of the experience with this To Kill a Mockingbird seuel Things change people change and the lens of our childhood perceptions can be clouded with a rose tint that turns out to be not so consistent with reality Fair warning is given to those dear readers who grew up like Scout to idolize Atticus As you grew up when you were grown totally unknown to yourself you confused your father with God You never saw him as a man with a man s heart and a man s failings I ll grant you it may have been hard to see he makes so few mistakes but he makes em like all of us You were an emotional cripple leaning on him getting the answers from him assuming that your answers would always be his answers p 265 Go Set a Watchman has neither the uaint small town feeling or the spooky mystery of Boo Radley whose unexplained absence is suspect in itself is he dead and was he buried up the chimney Gone too is the middle grade tone though there are plenty of oddly placed flashbacks to parts of Scout and Jem s teen yearsWe find Scout is fully grown and headstrong but is still terribly na ve which makes for many an explosive outburst She clashes most with her Aunt Alexandra mostly about such things as who she can marry Alexandra tends to have a deluded vision of Scout as some kind of high society woman and thinks she is too good for trash like HankIt isn t a perfect book It isn t an entertaining book It isn t even a necessary seuel I don t know why it s even been released other than to cash in on the success of the original The story is boring and meanders along with too many asides before ever making its point
