Narration was ok but story did not, as advertised, revolve around Jack Ryan. It was more a story of "The Campus". Way to much "computer geek" talk. Could tell that it was not a true Clancy story. The Jack Ryan actions that I was looking for (Debt of Honor,Executitive Orders) did not exist. This book should be listed as a Jack Ryan Jr. novel.
Whether it is playing football in Italy, painting a house in 1950 era Arkansas or making you wonder where the millions came from in a legal thriller,Grisham has the ability to "pull" you in, and keep hanging on the next word.
The Confession, unabridged, is a powerful and ensightful story that makes us think "What if this happened to me". I recognize this as a much used method in fictional writing but, Grisham has raised it to another level.
I have lived in East Texas all my life and know a lot about the culture and politics of the region. This COULD truly happen; and probably has.
