Ok, who really wrote this? If it was JG perhaps he needs to take a vacation from writting. Not up to the standard he usually writes. I have read ALL his books and this one is awful.(imo). So sorry can't recommend!

As an avid reader of Grisham I look forward to every book. To call this a dud is an understatement. Giving this one star is being charitable. Ironic that much of the boring story is about authors trying to sell weak stories. Struggled to read half of this total snoozer. Phew!!!!!

I thought I was being punked If one adds up forward, publisher pages , index, and title pages then subtracts from the 228 pages then this is norhing more than a $14.99 short story and not a very good one at that Even James Patterson isn't ripping off his readers this much. Will think long and hard before buying another of his books

I was disappointed in this, the latest from Grishom. I am a dedicated fan of his but feel that this one was lacking depth and suspense. Also, only 228 pages? Really? I would like to do what Bruce Cable did in one scene and box it up to return to the publisher.

" I didn't dream of being a collector either. It just sort of happened."- Camino Island John Grisham. That statement is only too true, some of us never begin to imagine becoming book collectors but it is an addiction, once you buy the first one you end up buying more and they sit on your to be read pile until you finally make it to the book in question. Such is the case for me and Camino Island. I pre ordered the book on the description of a mystery surrounding original handwritten manuscripts belonging to non other than F Scott Fitzgerald. I normally am not a big John Grisham fan just based on the sole fact that I prefer Fantasy books over legal thrillers but this one I couldn't put down. Towards the end of the book I began to get an anxious excitement almost dread of finishing the book. Dread because I would miss it after it was finished and anxiousness because I wanted to find out what happened. There were so many twists and turns in this book that I will admit I never saw coming. I suppose that is why John Grisham is great at what he does. The bottom line on this novel is if you have any interest in F. Scott at all or this typically isn't your cup of tea give it a try anyways. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Where was the Grisham style? I buy everything he writes, and while I like some plots more than others, over the years, his writing has never failed to impress. Until now. I will think twice before buying his next book.

Lousy book. Not up to the authors standards. Could have been written by a high school student. Too bad. I am a Grissom fan.

I get very jealous of the author's ability but in an admiring way. I read a lot and looking back this is the finest writing that I've seen in a while. It didn't make my blood race like some mysteries and westerns but much smoothness and quality. Spend the money and enjoy.

Good anti-hero novel. As the plot moves along I found myself liking the main crook better than the good guys. Main two characters both possessed likable traits, but both struggled with their humanistic flaws. Although not fully developed, the supporting cast of wacky literary authors living on the island made for an enjoyable read.

Although this was not one of Grisham's legal thrillers, it was still an excellent book. I believe it has to do with the way he writes. Once again, he created Interesting chaacters and a story that was easy to follow. It's such a pleasure to read anything he writes!

I have read almost everything Grisham has written and is below his standards. No depth or intrigue to the story. You knew the ending about halfway through the book. John please stay with your lawyer theme or you will lose your base.

Once again Grisham does what he does so well and that's Jack one out of the park. Book after book his writing is tasteful, insightful and scrumptious. Another work of art by the master himself.
