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've read every one of John Grisham's books and have never been disappointed. The Reckoning is a great read right from the get go. Again based in Clanton County Mississippi, he tells a great legal story mixed with heroing stories from WWII. I appreciate that while reading a great novel you also feel like you came away learning something.Great book!
I was really eager to read this book, and hated it. Long long descriptive passages about mundane things. So much dramatic build up about nothing. The war parts are appreciated but the rest was a waste of time witn unsympathetic characters. Time to find a new fave author.
I love John Grisham books and was anxious to read his latest work. The characters are nicely drawn andyou are pulled into the story and want to keep reading to see how it turns out. Because it’s John Grisham, you expect some kind of twist or unique reveal that will be the payout for investing so heavily in his characters and their dilemmas. Unfortunately the book is predictable and leaves you disappointed. The big secret turns out to be what you expected all along and you feel that it doesn’t ring true to the noble-ness of the main character. In the end you are left with some enjoyment but not the kind of satisfaction that would make you recommend the book to everyone you know who loves to read.
Great book- a different unexpected and not disappointing. Loved it!!!! I just hate waiting so long for the next one
