As I mentioned in another thread, I once read the book called Night by Elie Wiesel. When I went to look up the book again, I discovered that Mr. Wiesel had written more books so that now, it's one book in a trilogy: NightDawn and Day. It occurred to me then that maybe other books I've read in the past could have new prequels or sequels as well so I looked up The Giver by Lois Lowry [that's now in the series called The Giver Quartet, which is made up of The Giver (1993), Gathering Blue (2000), The Messenger (2004), and Son (2012)]. I also decided to look up more books after hearing that the book, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, now has a "sequel" called Go Set a Watchman (the general opinion, however, is that the book is less of a sequel than a "first draft" of To Kill a Mockingbird). In any case, I've been super excited to see that many of the books I once read now have new/additional content that could potentially enhance the stories and develop the plots so much more, and possibly raise the levels of enjoyment to unimaginable new heights.

Thus, does anyone know of some older books that have new sequels or prequels? Has anyone else also experienced this sense of "Wow! They wrote more books after I read that so many years ago? Amazing!" ? Please feel free to share the books that you read and looked up (they might even be some of the ones I'm looking for!) and your experiences with reading the prequels and sequels after so much time has passed (did you like/dislike the books more than you did before?). I know I'll be reading the books again in a whole new light (this time, I'm going to use literary analysis on them all, yay!) to gain greater insights and to reach new conclusions.

Looking forward to reading your responses!
