That’s my main complaint. The writing is better suited for those who dislike thinking. Your time is better spent elsewhere with so many titles available.

I liked the way that this book took us through the events inn mostly a chronological and interesting way while showing important connections. It made me appreciate good police work. It made me empathize with the victims and with women who face sexual power dynamics up to the extreme of rape. The book is good enough that I will Ben reading more by the author.

The first ¾ of the book is fine with some decent reminders. Toward the end the author begins making a series of tone deaf blanket statements about how "the poor" are and what they are doing to keep themselves poor. The author lacks perspective in the reality for billions of humans on the planet.

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.

Well that was terrible. What a disappointment. I would be absolutely surprised if this is actually Harper Lee's work.
