Is it just me or are John Grisham's shorter books inferior to his standard ones? I love JG & will always buy his books as soon as they come out but Bleachers and Skipping Christmas just weren't up to scratch. I hope the new one due in the autumn bucks this trend.
I actually think that Bleachers was a fantastic book. I've actually re-read it many times. Dependant on your knowledge of american football however it may have been not to your taste. His writing style is always evident in each of the books he writes though so I don't understand how you can like some of them and not others.
I do agree though that his law based books are usually a more enthralling read.
