5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Grisham., 2 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Confession (Hardcover)
Once again, Grisham has produced a fabulous book which is very hard to put down. I was even trying to sneak in a couple of pages while making coffee for our lunch guests!
It appears to be overtly anti-death-penalty, but in a way that is effectively (if somewhat sensationally at times!) reasoned. There's nothing preachy about the stance, rather, Grisham weaves it into what is a tremendous story.
The plot involves the last-minute efforts of a number of people to avert the execution of a man they are convinced is innocent. As such, it's edge of your seat stuff, as the characters are involved in a race against time. The plot is superb, and the characters are developed well. There's an emotional roller-coaster to ride too, with the wider implications such an execution would bring to bear on a Texan town. Obviously, I'm not going to give the game away here, but it's a cracker of a book.
For those disappointed by 'Theodore Boone' (though I myself wasn't!), this is definitely a return to the 'adult' market for Grisham, with skillful narrative and character development injected into every page.
