Inhaltsangabe

An historic literary event: the publication of a newly discovered novel, the earliest known work from Harper Lee, the beloved, best-selling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic To Kill a Mockingbird.

Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.

Go Set a Watchman features many of the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird some 20 years later. Returning home to Maycomb to visit her father, Jean Louise Finch--Scout--struggles with issues both personal and political, involving Atticus, society, and the small Alabama town that shaped her.

Exploring how the characters from To Kill a Mockingbird are adjusting to the turbulent events transforming mid-1950s America, Go Set a Watchman casts a fascinating new light on Harper Lee's enduring classic. Moving, funny, and compelling, it stands as a magnificent novel in its own right.

Kritikerstimmen

"All [characters] are portrayed by Witherspoon with perfect pitch and pacing, and the sure hand of a talented actress who is well aware of the region's racially fraught past." (AudioFile)

Your friends need you when they're wrong

A great book, published at the right time.
The story of Jean-Louise "coming in" to life as a human being, by painfully discovering how Atticus is not the Godlike superfigure she always thought he was, but deserves love and forgiveness just the same, because it is us who are called upon to stand up what we believe in.
Humanity requires Independence requires Compassion requires Resolve and Dedication!

Interesting

"Go Set a Watchman" is certainly very interesting for anyone who would like to know how novels develop under the hands of the author. This early version is completely different from the well-known "To Kill a Mockingbird". So although it is not at all a great story and fans of the Mockingbird-characters will be highly disappointed with how they turned out in this one, I'm happy to have listened to it. Sometimes it was a struggle to keep myself interested and not just give it up halfway. Maybe this feeling was intensified by Reese Witherspoon not being able to give life to any scene that wasn't romantic.

Achselzucken

Meine Rezension lässt sich mit einem Wort zusammenfassen: Achselzucken. Dieses Buch ist nichts Halbes und nichts Ganzes. Vor allem ist es enttäuschend, wenn man den Vorgänger kennt. Hier packt einen nichts, obwohl das Thema Rassismus hochbrisant ist. Es ist wie eine lauwarme Fortsetzung einer einst packenden Geschichte. Immerhin sehr gut von Reese Witherspoon gelesen, hätte ich nicht von ihr gedacht.

Exquisite

At last the characters of To kill a Mockingbird has grown and come to full closure and matured in the true spirit of Atticus and his silent wisdom.

The narrator painted vividly the audio atmosphere / impressions that set the novel perfectly.

I enjoyed tremendously listening and will listen to it again.
