Could do better Mr Grisham!,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Summons (Hardcover)
I am a massive John Grisham fan having read every one of his books. I waited with anticipation for this book, and was very disappointed. The characters are very difficult to relate to and the plot is very weak. It is not a page turner like other Grisham novels and I read the book in one sitting.
Finding 3 million dollars in your dead fathers house is a good idea, but Grisham does not really develop the plot. The book is basically about what to do with it. Keep it, or give some to the brother who incidently is a drug addict and the money could destroy him? Yawn. There are so many possibilities for the plot, but they are under developed and the ending is rubbish. There is no action and fast pace like previous Grisham novels. Disappointing, but I recommend all other John Grisham titles!!

I have to agree, I hoped throughout the whole book it would get better.. it didn't! I felt it was a chore to read, unlike a few others of John Grisham's that I have read and really enjoyed.

no, I enjoyed it, the gentle pace and a lack of obvious plot developments. I liked him keeping hold of the money and seemingly having a good time with planes, blackjack and some nice friendly characters. I felt I could have been Ray.
