Well, I don’t know what I expected. I knew that this novel came first. I knew it was the earliest attempt at this story, and that it was rejected then rewritten and it would become To Kill a Mockingbird. I knew all that. That it’s not a sequel, but a draft. I just didn’t expect the difference in quality would be this dramatic.
Anyways, I hated the book, but it’s beautiful (and very educational) to see the process.
