- Author John Grisham
I do love a good John Grisham, but I must say this was a middle-of-the-road JG. The story was really well-written, and enticing, with great characters, and a good structure. It’s just that overall I was left feeling very, very depressed. Perhaps I shouldn’t judge the book on that, perhaps that is just the way it is supposed to be - to make you think. I don’t know.
I very much enjoyed the author’s note in which Grisham declares that if anyone finds any factual errors, he basically doesn’t care because he hates research so much. That’s not to say he did none, but that it’s not his favourite part of it. I do like some nice honesty.
So, overall, it’s not put me off Grisham’s books, and it’s certainly not as bad as the Painted House one, but it’s not a favourite.
