When I heard this book had been released- a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird set 20 years later- I was so excited & intended to buy it as soon as I could- having loved her previous book.
Then the reviews totally slated it & I decided to wait until it was a bit cheaper. I finally got it last week for our next Reading Group book & I could not put it down. Just goes to show that reviewers are not always right.
It is an excellent story, well told. Yes- it is very different from the previous book & yes- it does raise a lot of questions on the character of both Atticus & Scout but it is a well told story & really makes you think.
It has some humour- one part really funny- but the main concern of the book- the issue of segregation & human rights in 1950's USA is powerful.
I'd love to know what other Gransnetters thought of it.
