    • Great plot, a bit of history added....however I pretty much had it figured out not long into the book. I feel it was one of his “easier” reads. I have read them all!!
    • I have always enjoyed John Grisham's novels. This one is a disappointment. First of all I did NOT like the ending at all. I know that's about me and not about the book but I still didn't like it. More than that I didn't like wasting my time thumbing through page after page after page of completely useless narrative. There is a vastly long section at the center of the book where he is writing about the mothers mental problems and the sons law school career that are a complete waste of time. It's obvious that the publishers are paying him by the page or by the word. The result is a huge amount of unnecessary text that doesn't really contribute to the story, that is very useful in putting me to sleep. This is not the first time this is happened. I have found it happening more and more frequently with other authors.
    • Grisham is always an excellent story teller. In this one his order is present, past, and then the real present. As a reader who has never been to Ford County or the Phillipines, I feel like I know both intimately. Most compelling Grisham novel yet. You will not be disappointed.
    • This was not a kind of story you normally write. The graphic description of the death march was so real. I lived through world war 2. I was surprised by this book. I have read all your books. I am 83 years old. Please keep writing. I really wish you knew my story. Best wishes, Mary
    • I've read all of his books and this is by far the worst - save your money!!Jim
