A few people have been telling me how good John Grisham is & as I like crime/thriller books thought I would give him a go.Am about 1/4 through A Time to Kill and I am really struggling. I'll finish this one but honestly, does he get better or should I just stop now?!
Have enjoyed all of them except The Appeal which I haven't finished. The names of the characters can be a bit far fetched though..
I loves all of his except "A painted house"His law books really are very good.
The Broker (think by JG) is brilliant - could not put it down!!
Agree with madusa
A time to kill is a fantastic book! Though I would say that JG is one of my favuorite authors.You should really watch the film when you complete the book.
The Street Lawyer is fantastic IMO
Lewis, I enjoyed that book too, although I thought is was quite short.A must read JG book is 'The Firm', utterly brilliant. That eejit Tom Cruise ruined it for me!
I've enjoyed all the John Grisham books I have read. I recently finished The Appeal. I love his cynicism.
Its weird, I find John Grisham a bit meh, but actually seem to enjoy them (if that makes sense?).I do love A Time To Kill though just for the storyline (well, and the film for his arse ) - keep going.(Book is parcelled up... just not left my house btw)
The Firm - the first one I read, gripping.The Client - absolutely fabThe Chamber - hardest to get into.
I absolutely loathe John Grisham. If you're struggling, I'd say don't bother. It might not get any better!
I'm with Flamesparrow on this - all a bit meh but I still read them avidly (past tense - find me five mins when I'm not busy MNing being a mother or wife and I'll read again!)
