Amazing!!!

I personally loved this book and thought that it was very well written. I couldn't put it down and I felt that it was exciting to the last page. I hope that John Grisham makes a sequal because I am very anxious to read the continuation of this story.

Not as good as his legal mysteries. The story was well told, but

Not as good as his legal mysteries. The story was well told, but I could not get into this book as much as I did his others. I look forward to his legal mysteries.

    NOT TYPICAL GRISHAM

    This book was a big disappointment! I could start and stop reading this book anytime, it was boring. Save your money if you have not purchased it already. Growing up in rural Georgia, a story about a cotton farm and the challenges of rural life is old news.

    Very Disappointed!

    Always grab up Grisham's books, but sorely disappointed this time. It didn't even seem like his writing! What was the point to the whole book??? Definite waste of my money. How sad!!!

    Luke, what did you do last summer?

    No plot, a lot of open ends, no justice for the bad guys and rather depressing. Just a kid talking about 3 or 4 months during cotton picking season.

    Not a TRUE Grisham novel

    John Grisham is one of my favorite authors. I have never read one of his books that I didn't love. With the exception of this one. The book is written well...but I want more from John Grisham. He is a great writer but this book is lacking his usual suspense and excitement. I am looking forward to his next book, and hoping he makes it more exciting.

    Not one of his best books

    John Grisham is an awesome author and I love his books. This book is an exception to his writing ability. The reason I read his books is because the stories revolve around the law profession. With the talent and skill Mr. Grisham has in law, I wish he would continue to write about the courtroom and the judicial system.

    Quit while your ahead.

    Why John Grisham decided to change his style is beyond me....After reading an exerp of the first chapter, I was as eager to continue reading as a child getting their first tooth pulled. Grisham is a wonderful author of law and courtroom drama. Not to entale his work here, because I am sure it is great, but Grisham needs to quit while he is ahead......
