The detail Grisham typically brings to his books add meaning and context. In this case, however, the book is comprised of nothing but superflous detail. There is no story, it flails with no sense purpose around the issue of the death sentence and the circumstances stretch credibility. Boring and irrelevant.
This book was somewhat hard to listen to toward the end. I kept turning it off as the end got closer and closer. It covers a very hard subject and explores all the issues having to do with the death sentence. It was moving and full of passion and honesty but still difficult to listen to as the issue is so profound.
I loved this book. Great writers and the speakers did a fabulous job. Definately recommend to read!
Depressing, morbid ,The story of a kIller who deserves to die in The gas chamber,and the delaying tactics of his just found grandson lawyer. It too long, the story protrays this killer as a good guy who finally repents all his killing and finds God. I love Grisham and have read all his books .This falls way below his normal ability. I would not recommend This book and I am sorry I bought it.
This is a dark study of a family with a history of generations participating in the KKK and its affects on the current generation. It is depressing with some interesting insights into the debate of genetic versus environment factors determining who we are. I would pass on this one.
