I have heard that this book portrays Atticus Finch in a much different light than To Kill A Mockingbird. I can't bring myself to read it yet because of that. TKAM was my favorite book growing up, I must have read it 50 times. Atticus was my hero - believing in judging each person based on their character, not their skin color. To read about him being portrayed as a racist is just too much, I can't bare it! Anyone here read Go Set A Watchman? What did you think of it?

Haven't read it yet, but looking forward to doing so. I've already heard discussions about Atticus Finch being revealed as a racist, but I think that's a good thing - really adds good shading to his complex character.
