Rated 3 out of 5 by from Scott, Atticus & Boo - An Okay Read This book was a worthwhile but slow read - I appreciated reading the viewpoints of other reader-authors about one of my favourite books, To Kill A Mockingbird; however, I found the interview portion of Scott, Atticus & Boo to be either enlightening or plodding, dependant on the focus of the interviewee - Most of the interviewed subjects, though not all, tended to ramble and repeat themselves, as one would when thinking aloud - I believe that the printed interviews would have had a better flow, in most cases, if Ms Murphy had edited more tightly.
