First chapter is up online:
Anyone planning to read the book when it comes out?
not going to read the first chapter though. Why do people do that?
The first 3 are generally filler
I'll wait to see what the reviews are like I guess.
Fascinating look at the creative talent of a reclusive author, enjoyable story, but doesn't live up to the legacy of her first book.
however I will await the verdict of the critics.
Should I? Will it be shit if I read it as a cynical 40 year old?
there is one that lives next door
by the fact it spawned one of the nicer DiSers of old.
I'm not sure if i will read, apparently it was more of a draft anyway
GSAW with flashbacks to TKAM. Ben Affleck as Atticus, Abigail Breslin as Scout
i'll wait to see complete shit
was an average read. Not bad but not a classic either. I read it late in my early 30s rather than as a teenager and so I didn't grow up with the book. I liked the film more though.
but this is the absolutely standard line I'm afraid. Apply yourself to your research a bit more.
what was happening at the time but for whatever reason reading it just didn't click for me. I'm not calling it a bad or boring book, I thought it was ok but personally it wasn't one that I'd have in my top 10 etc. of books that I've read. I was looking forward to reading it as a classic that I misses but I thought it was ok. I didn't dislike it, nor like it.
I really don't like it.
