A Big disappointment
on 14 August 2009
This was the 5th Grisham book that I have read, and it failed miserably compared to the others that I have read (A time to Kill, The last Juror, The Innocent Man and The Client, all of which were un-put-downable and worth their weight in gold).
After a good start, this book simply plods along with the same boredom until the end. Simply, nothing happens to make you want to read on. Some lose ends remain, like, why did the accomplice break into Lee's home and steal her keys? He never uses them, so what was the point?
Sadly, this book was a waste of money. I found myself only reading it at times when I had nothing better to do, whereas the previous Grisham books that I have read I couldn't wait to pick them up again.
Hopefully, this was a one-off failure, and that the other Grisham books I have sat on my bookshelf waiting to be read will be far better.
