Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee | Summary & Analysis
Jean Louise Finch tries to go home again and finds tiny Maycomb, Alabama grappling with the emerging civil rights movement in the mid-1950s. Set nearly twenty years after the events in To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee’s classic American novel, Go Set a Watchman looks at the earlier book’s beloved characters in a different and, sometimes shocking, light. Go Set a Watchman, however, was written first, and became the groundwork from which To Kill a Mockingbird was developed.  
At 26, Jean Louise, who managed to grow up color blind in the Deep South, has been living in New York City. She arrives home for her fifth annual two-week visit, eager to see her father, Atticus. She also plans to see her longtime suitor, Henry ‘Hank’ Clinton, her brother’s best friend and junior partner in Atticus’s law firm. She thinks she may be ready to settle down and give Atticus some grandchildren, but what she discovers undermines every assumption she has ever had…

User reviews about this book

  • A great read!

    By Great2838637
    This book has an amazing storyline. In the past, I've read To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I've heard this story laid the groundwork for To Kill A Mockingbird so I quickly got my hands on one of these books. It was great to read about Jean Louise's future 20 years later. I highly recommend this book to readers that want a quick read summary of Go Set A Watchman.
  • Awesome book!

    By John stanley55
    The story is really well written, and really brings you to the generalization of what the books is about, and really draws you into by reading 10 pages of it, I finished the book in three days, and I've found the ending is the best, and is very surprising!
  • Really bad

    By dondane123
    I read to kill a mockingbird and the second novel is trash, it has little to no story and it doesn't fill in many plot holes. I was very disappointed....
  • A great book and a good read

    By Alexander Reno
    Loved reading the summary companion to go set a watchman. I loved the book itself so reading the summary was just as good. I basically stayed in the library and read all the book in one sitting i didn't even go to the restroom lol it was that good. I think its good for people who don't read a lot.
  • Awesome story!

    By dhiru123
    The story is given importance to each and every interesting character! You can read each chapter and summarize everything that happened before very easily! The plot is a thriller and will get you reading and reading! A must read for all! Great for long airplane trips/road trips!
  • Interesting and indulging story

    By Levi613
    Thrilling storyline where every character had their moment and more importantly importance in their role in the plot. Whether it be tying to something bigger or just telling their side of things, "Go Set a Watchman" had me reading for quite awhile just sitting there absorbing every key detail I could get. The way everything blended together so smooth til I hit the end was phenomenal to say the least.
