3.0 out of 5 stars A solid story, 28 April 2014
This review is from: Sycamore Row (Hardcover)
A Time to Kill was the first book my husband ever bought me many years ago... I was MUCH younger, studying Law at University and intrigued. The plot was compelling and it was a fantastic read.

This book is a follow on (kind of) - three years after the controversial trial Jake won he gets his shot with another case. This case involves a handwritten (but legal) will and the entire plot revolves around proving whether Seth Hubbard (the man who killed himself by hanging himself from a tree) had "testamentary capacity" when he wrote this new will.

It is a reasonable read, if you have hours to kill with nothing better to do. I enjoyed it, but found it rambled too much and had too much "filler" (always wanted to use this term I have seen in other reviews... Ha ha).

The problem with books of this nature is that if (as in my case) you have figured out what is going to happen early on, you spend the next 250 pages waiting for what you expected to happen. When it does, there is some disappointment. It is good to leave clues along the way, but I like twists... And this one did not have many! It was all too predictable.

It is a good story? Yes.
It is sad & something we should not forget? Yes.
Could any other author have written it better? Probably...

Either way, I got this as a Christmas present (a lovely hardback) and it'll look pretty with my collection of John Grisham books. If you have not read him before this is a good read. If you have, this is a typical Grisham but probably not one of his best.
