This is amaazing.

Re: Harper Lee to publish a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird

I saw that!  Fascinating… coming from one of the many who read it as required reading in high school and it's impact… especially about the 'never wrote another book' stuff, and how it recently came about again (and how much Harper had a hand in?) and that this book was the "original" apparently.

Re: Harper Lee to publish a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird

Hey, so, really not meaning to be a downer, sorry, but still fascinating… and sad!  Having never known much on Harper in the past, I found the bits in the first article interesting about realizing 'why' there had never been anything else published from her, with not wanting to deal with publicity/scrutiny/novel comparisons, etc, and how her sister had long been her advocate and 'shield' with all that.  Unfortunately, with sister's death a while ago, and Harper's bad health, I wonder how truthfully close to home this countering article I found is: 

http://jezebel.com/be-suspicious-of-the-new-harper-lee-novel-1683488258


Attitudes change… or maybe needed the money, but it's still strange.  How do people feel about works being posthumously put out, then, whether because the author didn't get a chance to, or never chose to while alive? (or heck, even finished, like in the case of… who was it a while back, Robert Jordan's series?)  Just has me wondering about all this happening now...

Interesting.

However, I know I will have to read it regardless.  There's no way I could not.

She is a woman as far as I know. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

Re: Harper Lee to publish a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird

I must admit that my first thought was, oh dear, does she need money? I hope I am wrong and it will be a great new novel.

Re: Harper Lee to publish a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird

Me and I like it.
But I seem to be the only person in the world who does.
Warning to Mockingbird acolytes, the sequel is very challenging.

Re: Harper Lee to publish a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird

Oh, I liked it, but haven't finished it yet (which is actually no reflection on the book - I'm very, very bad at jumping around from book to book and often have more than 20 on the go).   Having read about it, I went into it with fairly low expectations.   It's a different kind of story, seen through young adult eyes instead of a child's eyes.  Quite funny in parts too. 

I had mixed feelings about it being published.  I know Harper Lee had resisted for years and may have been taken advantage of - I don't really know the truth of it all.  I did think that maybe it was nice that she should have it published and have the money before she died.

Re: Harper Lee to publish a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird

Yes I think it may well have been published against her wishes...
Judging by most of the reaction to it, I can see why.

Re: Harper Lee to publish a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird

I have yet to read it.  I kind of wanted to let some time pass, let the hype dissipate, before I went into it, since I had been hearing things on the news about people getting mad about the stuff about how Atticus wasn't as much of a "saint" as in To Kill a Mockingbird.
I'm inclined to think Go Set a Watchman is a bit of an alternate world of the book, since it was the original rejected version.

Clueing for looks.

Re: Harper Lee to publish a sequel to To Kill a Mockingbird

It seems strange that Lee would completely change her mind about Atticus...
So I remain undecided upon that one.
