Go Set A Watchman

So, I succumbed to the hype and preordered Harper Lee’s book, Go Set A Watchman. 

I have almost finished it, and I’m not sure I love it.  GSAT is actually the first draft of her first and only other published novel, To Kill a Mockingbird (which I did enjoy very much). I don’t know if it’s the controversy that surrounds it, the writing or the story, but something is off.

I’m curious to see what your take is on it?

Throwing Rocks

Throwing rocks into the water,
As I stand along the bank.
Hurling one after another,
Til I saw they had not sank.

I stood there and I pondered,
Why that this would be.
For why would rocks that I have thrown,
Stay atop the sea?

I searched around for one more stone,
The biggest of them all.
One that’s size and weight alone
Could make the rest of them fall.

Stopping in my tracks,
I gazed at the sheet of steel.
I could not describe what it was,
Or the way it made me feel.

But staring at each failed attempt,
I saw each one so clear.
And as I came to accept them all,
They began to disappear.
