I read several Grisham novels early in his career, quit for several years, then tried to get through The Rooster Bar. I quit reading about halfway through, partly because I didn't care for any of the main characters. I thought I'd try his latest, The Reckoning, mainly because it takes place in Ford County, where A Time To Kill was set. I made it to the end, but found only the section concerning WWII really interesting. There was no doubt you would learn why certain things happened at the book's end, but the story seemed so disjointed, and the characters all pretty one-dimensional, I didn't really care. These two latest Grisham books weren't up to the standard of his earlier works.
