Will you be joining us in discussing "Go Set a Watchman?"

If so please "check in" by making a brief post in this thread letting us know you're planning to join the discussion. Checking in let's other members know that they aren't alone in this book discussion.

You may have ordered your book and are waiting on it to arrive. Or perhaps you have your book already but plan to do some reading before you start posting in this book forum. Well, there is no way for other members to know that you plan to participate unless you tell them. So please make a quick post here and let us know we can expect to hear more from you at some point. Doing so helps motivate other people to buy the book and join the discussion. :-)

I've downloaded the Kindle and started reading just a little bit, so far so good. However I'm wondering if I should read the prequel To Kill A Mockingbird first because it has been so long since I read it or saw the movie.

How long would it take for you to read the prequel, LanDroid?

There's quite a bit of the storyline from TKAM referenced in Go Set a Watchman that re-reading the prequel could be a fun thing, but I don't think it would be a necessary thing, in fact GSaW has some passages that are almost verbatim reprints from TKAM.

This is me checking in. I've downloaded it to my iPhone and have read Chapter 1 which sounds like it might be a love story. I know it won't . Anyway , I've Googled Verbena and everything :wink:

I can't remember all but the bare bones of TKAM but I remember the character of Atticus and his daughter, from the film and I think the boork is about character and integrity from the blurb.

I read the book already. I could not help it. The first Chapter I think sets the tone of the book. You really don't have to remember too much about TKAM. I don't know how to do this discussion. Would like some tips.

I never read TKAM, so my impressions are/will be totally from the movie.

The movie is one of the closest film adaptations I've seen. You'll not be missing a beat by using the film version as a reference.
