    • This is a great book by an equally great author. Having read many of his books the first section was as expected. I did not expect a section with the depth of detail about Pete's war experiences. The third section was even more diverting and I couldn't put the book down. I am a long time John Grisham fan and this book is at a new level. For anyone that may have any doubts all I can say is you won't be disappointed. I highly recommend this for avid fans and as a great introduction to John Grsham's books.
    • 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.
    • I like this book because it was easy to read and a book I could not put down.
    • Not the best Grisham has written. If I could demand a refund I would. I regret wasting my time finishing it.
    • This is not a typical John Grisham story. It is very tragic and examines the cultural and psychological aspects of poor communication and perhaps the effects of PTSD in WW2 vets. There’s no happy ending here. The main character is built so that I felt empathy for him, however he brought so much destruction to so many people it is almost impossible to feel any real sympathy for him. The lesson here for me is that actions produce consequences that effect more people than you might imagine. Also communicating well is much more important than actions.
