I just finished "The Appeal" in abridged format. I found it to be interesting and well presented. It held my attention to the end.
From some other reviews that were posted, I had some concerns about the ending being a disappointment. I have to disagree. Without giving the plot away, I think Grisham wanted to make us think about the subjects he was presenting. As far as I'm concerned, he succeeded.
The Journalist who loves Jack Russels!
An enjoyable book along with an incredible legal learning curve.
Michael Beck is a great narrator. His ability to use multiple voice-overs bring major to the story.
Oh Yes. How close the story is to real-life events.
Very good book. I love Grisham/Beck pair up.
