Book Review: Go Set A Watchman

This book failed to live up to the hype for me. The story fell flat for me. It was the story of a journey into adulthood and seeing the world as it really was: evil, beautiful, and a multitude of shades between. The delivery was off though. It lacked the moment where you felt the world widen and the eyes brighten. Knowing the background of the book, and the background of the characters for that matter, was the major redeemable quality. And for that, that wonderful feeling of getting together with old friends, this book is worth a look, but like often is the case, old friends have become old, inside jokes have run stale, and new memories are not created to replace the old ones that fade.
