"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 about 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 Watchman imparts a fuller, richer understanding and appreciation of Harper Lee. Here is an unforgettable novel of wisdom, humanity, passion, humor, and effortless precision -- a profoundly affecting work of art that is both wonderfully evocative of another era and relevant to our own times. It not only confirms the enduring brilliance of To Kill a Mockingbird, but also serves as its essential companion, adding depth, context, and new meaning to an American classic." -- Book jacket.… (lisätietoja)

If a person were to write only two books in their lifetime of the calibre of Harper Lee's small canon, then they would have achieved something very great indeed.

While I realize there was much controversy surrounding Lee's sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird, which I first discovered and loved in English literature class in secondary school, for this devotee of literature I found no such need to listen to any debate.

From the first paragraph to the last, Lee proves herself a remarkable writer and consummate story-teller. Go Set a Watchman is a perfect completion of the story she published back in 1960, and although it is set 20 years later than To Kill a Mockingbird, in some ways the story also serves as a prequel, filling in some of the backstory around Atticus Finch and his raison d'etre.

Lee circles back to the reality of racial prejudice, and this time through the adult perception of Jean Louise Finch, who sees her father for the clever, amoral manipulator of law and justice that he is, seemingly serving the upholding of what is right and just, while in fact serving his uglier agenda of eliminating Black presence in his community and life.

It is a story about shattered faith and relationships, about the implacable nature of bigotry and religious conviction, and is told through simple, elegant prose.

This is a story worth reading, and a book worthy of space on your library shelves. ( )

Il libro è bello, meglio del precedente: meno romanzo per ragazzi, più sociologico e "discusso". Meno personaggi, meno avventure ma un tema svolto meglio.
Solo su due punti mi scivola. Quando torna a ricordare avventure di ragazzi: ecco, non l'avrei fatto. Perchè non servono a niente. Ed il titolo, citazione dalla Bibbia: non c'entra. Perchè? ( )

I'd have preferred that this book was never published. The only thing keeping it from one star is that some passages are really beautifully written and I adore the Shakespearian allusions. This is the most disappointed I recall ever feeling in a book. To Kill a Mockingbird is such a paragon and this is quite despicable. While I understand all products of the past must be looked at through the lens of historical relativity, after drudging through pages of what felt like an ignorant apologist's propaganda piece, I am utterly disenchanted with the Finches.

I feel this star rating might actually be a bit 'nice'. The book was boring with the exposition lasting until well into page 100. I understand the point of the book surrounding the idea of "be your own person" and "you will need to think for yourself and form your own opinions breaking from your parent's", but I thought Scout was a little dramatic in her breaking and forming her own person - and seriously at her age? I feel it should have happened sooner.

The only thing I really liked about this book and felt like I could focus on was the flashbacks to things Scout had experienced earlier in her life with Jem and their other friends. The flashbacks were the only part that felt even somewhat close to To Kill a Mockingbird. And don't get me wrong, I wasn't expecting or wanting this to be like To Kill a Mockingbird. To Kill a Mockingbird wasn't my favorite book and I didn't find myself loving it, but I didn't think Go Set a Watchman was going to have the kind of angst Scout felt upon returning home. Her inner turmoil was a little too intense for me and her unwillingness to listen and understand the ones she loved was a little over the top for me. Her character development, as well as the character development of the other characters was fine, but the overall themes intertwined with the character development didn't work for me.

Sorry, Harper Lee. You can tell one hell of a story with your unique writing style, but this one fell quite short for me. ( )

And so beneath Atticus’s style of enlightenment is a kind of bigotry that could not recognize itself as such at the time. The historical and human fallacies of the Agrarian ideology hardly need to be rehearsed now, but it should be said that these views were not regarded as ridiculous by intellectuals at the time. Indeed, Jean Louise/Lee herself, though passionately opposed to what her uncle and her father are saying, nevertheless accepts the general terms of the debate as the right ones.

Go Set a Watchman is a troubling confusion of a novel, politically and artistically, beginning with its fishy origin story. .. I ached for this adult Scout: The civil rights movement may be gathering force, but the second women's movement hasn't happened yet. I wanted to transport Scout to our own time — take her to a performance of Fun Home on Broadway — to know that, if she could only hang on, the possibilities for nonconforming tomboys will open up. Lee herself, writing in the 1950s, lacks the language and social imagination to fully develop this potentially powerful theme.
 
Despite the boldness and bravery of its politics, Go Set a Watchman is a very rough diamond in literary terms … it is a book of enormous literary interest, and questionable literary merit.
 
It is, in most respects, a new work, and a pleasure, revelation and genuine literary event, akin to the discovery of extra sections from T S Eliot’s The Waste Land or a missing act from Hamlet hinting that the prince may have killed his father.
lisäsi Widsith | muokkaaThe Guardian, Mark Lawson (Jul 12, 2015)
 
Watchman is both a painful complication of Harper Lee’s beloved book and a confirmation that a novel read widely by schoolchildren is far more bitter than sweet. Watchman is alienating from the very start.

"Every man's island, Jean Louise, every man's watchman, is his conscience." "There is no such thing as a collective conscious".
"Aunty," she said, cordially, "why don't you go pee in your hat?"
I need a watchman to lead me around and declare what he seeth every hour on the hour.  I need a watchman to tell me this is what a man says but this is what he means, to draw a line down the middle and say here is this justice and there is that justice and make me understand the difference. I need a watchman to go forth and proclaim to them all that twenty-six years is too long to play a joke on anybody, no matter how funny it is.
I was taught never to take advantage of anybody who was less fortunate than myself, whether he be less fortunate in brains, wealth, or social position; it meant anybody, not just Negroes. I was given to understand that the reverse was to be despised. That is the way I was raised, by a black woman and a white man.
I detest the sound of it as much as its matter
