Word on the Street: Harper Lee's 'Go Set a Watchman'

Barnes and Noble says that "Go Set a Watchman," Harper Lee's much anticipated sequel to "To Kill a Mockingbird," has been dominating their bookshelves.



The book is now the most popular reserved book of any new release, but not everyone is a fan.



Many readers are criticizing Lee's book for portraying beloved protagonist Atticus Finch as a bigot.



News 12 hit the streets to ask Brooklyn residents if they thought the sequel ruined the original novel.
