Go Set a Watchman
the second novel by Harper Lee, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning To Kill a Mockingbird
, is one of the most talked about books in decades. Some fans are refusing to read the book on principle because of suspicions that Lee didn't want it published and may have been taken advantage of in her infirmity
Spoiler warning, though a very minor one since it's revealed early in the book.
Others are upset that the beloved character Atticus Finch, champion of human rights in To Kill a Mockingbird
, in this book is a racist. The book is not really a sequel, but was written first, and it seems that Harper subsequently revised the character.
Are you put off by the allegations that Harper has been taken advantage of, or by the changes to Atticus' character, or are you interested to read it out of curiousity?
