(15) The Appeal by John Grisham

I was so very disappointed with this book.

A lady at work started reading it around the same time I did & she commented that she was HATING it. I hadn't gotten very far into it & I thought she was crazy!

I mean, it is JOHN GRISHAM (!!) at his best! A legal thriller!! And either I am incorrectly remembering his past legal thrillers, or maybe my reading level has improved, but it was horrible.

There was very little dialogue between the characters. It was more like a third person describing the world and the situation.

And then I got to the end and I was soooooooooo let down. My thought was "That's it?" Yes, that was it.

I don't want to go in to the story any further, or the ending, because it would be giving it away for those who want to read the book.

I have no doubt that we will sell a gazillion copies of this book, well, because it IS John Grisham. But I will seriously reconsider his next book because of my disappointment in The Appeal.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
