Go Set a Watchman

Go Set a Watchman (To Kill a Mockingbird, #2)Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Childe Roland to the Dark Tower came.

I found this story thought provoking and funny at times. Knowing this is a first draft of To Kill a Mockingbird made me wonder if it would be any good. I found the conversations between Jean Louise, Hank, Atticus, Jack, and Alexandria entertaining. Jean Louise's conversations with Jack and her confrontations with Alexandria where highlights. I found Jean Louise's reunion with Calpurnia to be heartbreaking.

The social context grew heavy as the book progressed. The denouement was complex and satisfying, I hope to put a copy of this on my permanent shelf.

Review: The Son

The SonThe Son by Jo Nesbø
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I general I liked this story. Though I only gave it three stars because it felt disorganized and rushed times, the last third specifically. Maybe the translation was bad but again the last third lost steam which in turn lost me. The story didn't flow like Harry Hole one, maybe that bothered me too.

Anyway, I felt some of the pieces in the story were those of revenge, the fan scene especially. However I felt like the mole reveal was somewhat telegraphed. All in all it was a fine read, just not something I'd read a second time.
