Review - Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee

Assalamualaikum and good day!

Genre : Historical Fiction, Classic, Fiction
Edition : Paperback, by Arrow
Pages : 278 pages
Goodreads Ratings : 3.32 ☆
My Ratings : 3.6 ☆

Twenty years after To Kill A Mockingbird. Scout or Jean Louise Finch returns to Maycomb to visit her father, Atticus Finch. She finds a lot of changes in Maycomb in terms of political issue and her family issue. Jean Louise finds an unacceptable changes in her father and dueling with her own feelings towards Maycomb and surrounding, just not like what she remembers it as in her childhood time.

I personally just like this book but love the story as a whole (TKAM+GSAW).I still love Scout and Atticus. The bigger picture is that time changes, mind set changes, situation also changes resulting different approach of things. Still about "colours and race", that is what upset Scout so much, seeing her father shows different attitudes towards society in Maycomb. However, the explanation from her Uncle Jack, soothed everything out.

No. It's not a sequel to TKAM to me. Though I would love to find out about Boo Radley more, this is for me a continuous or a follow-up to TKAM. I can see why GSAW didn't get to be published then. If you are seeing GSAW as a sequel, you will be disappointed. Rated 3.7/5.0.
