I know that I’m super late on reading this book since most people read it in school. However, I didn’t so I bought it earlier this summer and go to it recently. I know that this book is a classic and that almost everyone who reads it loves it, but I was not thrilled.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good read. However, it took me forever to get through it. It started off slow and then started to get interesting and then fell off again. I felt like every other chapter I was interested and then I was bored again. I loved the story as a whole and I see why it’s so popular, I just wished that it was a little quicker. I definitely liked Atticus but went back and forth between loving and being annoyed with Scout and Jem.
If you read the book what do you think? Did you enjoy it? Would you recommend it?
At this point I have no intention to read Go Set a Watchman. When the book was first released there were a lot of mixed feelings about it. From my understanding the book was supposed to be a sequel (which technically it is because Scout is an adult now). But, some people who read it said that it felt more like an unfinished draft. Or possibly the original draft of To Kill a Mockingbird. Some people also wonder if Harper Lee actually wanted it released in the first place. Another complaint is that it ruins the image of Atticus and is a step back from the first book.
If anyone has read, how did you feel about it? If you didn’t do you plan to? Why or why not? And have you heard anything else about how the novel was received?
Let me know!
