    John Grisham returns to Ford County, Mississippi, the setting of his immensely popular first novel, A Time to Kill. This wholly surprising collection of stories reminds us once again why Grisham is America's favorite storyteller.

    Overall

    I can't begin to tell you how disappointed my wife and I were with this book. We are huge Grisham fans and we have every single Grisham book. However, I listened to three of the stories and wasn't interested in another "root canal". My wife listened to every story and told me not to waste my time listening to the rest of the book. If the stories weren't bad enough, the reading by Grisham was like listening to someone who was just learning to read! His expression and cadence were so poor that I could hardly even tell when a story had ended. Please, John, don't embarrass yourself by recording another one of your books. You might have made some extra money by not paying someone else to read it, but your reputation took a huge hit. I realize this review is pretty brutal, but then again, the book was a major letdown.

    John Grisham's first work of nonfiction, an exploration of small town justice gone terribly awry, is his most extraordinary legal thriller yet.

    Overall

    Can you say, "Root Canal"? I'd rather go to the dentist for a root canal than listen to this book again! If you are taking a course in criminal justice, perhaps this would be a good book to read about the flaws in our criminal system. Otherwise, get the root canal first. It will be more enjoyable. Oh, by the way, I'm a huge fan of John Grisham -- but John, stay away from non-fiction.

    Like it or not, Hillary Clinton is almost assuredly going to run for president in 2008. It doesn't matter that her negative poll numbers are high or that her past 15 years in the public eye have been anything but smooth. Since she was a little girl she has dreamed about becoming the first female president, and now that dream is well within reach.

    John says: "Right down party lines"
    "Incredible, but true"
    Overall

    Great book. Good to hear the truth.
