    Okay, but not great

    I love John Grisham's writing but this story left a lot to be desired. This young lawyer's feeble attempt to save his racist, murdering grandfather from death row drew no compassion from a person like me who opposes the death penalty. I found myself being disgusted by the discription of the prison conditions and how unfair the prisoners are treated especially since this man along with others were hardened criminals. Futhermore I don't see how Adam's handling of this case would help his family or his career. I was happy when Sam was gased and done with all the self pity.

    Not one of his better books

    I read the Chamber as my second Grisham book and had found it wasn't up to par with his other books. I found it very predictable and not exceedingly interesting.

    More like 2 1/2 stars

    The opening didn't grab me at first like other Grisham novels. Took me awhile to finish. Characters are well defined and interesting but the whole book is centered around the prisoner as is expected but gets tiring. Side plots are not as strong. Does have some legal thrills and mystery. After reading this story it has changed my view of the death penality.

    A bit boring in middle yet excellent in the begining and end

    This book was a intresting book if you like that sort of criminal thing. It was a good book though.

    This book is OK

    I saw the movie first so maybe that spoiled it but the book wasn't all that great. The book was OK.
