Publisher's Summary

Clanton, Mississippi. The life of a 10-year-old black girl is shattered by 2 drunken and remorseless young men. The mostly white town reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime. Until her father acquires an assault riffle - and takes justice into his own outraged hands. For 10 days, with burning crosses and the crack of sniper fire spreading through the streets of Clanton, the nation sits spellbound as young defense attorney Jake Brigance struggles to save his client's life...and then his own...

    "Nobody will read this review"
    Any additional comments?

    BUT- I wanted to put one anyway. I know this book has been around for a long time. I think I saw the movie many, many years ago.

    What a wonderfully written story right? The characters are all believable, the story is truly a reflection of the deep rooted racism in the south. The story is written so well that you can see a movie play out in your mind. You can see it. To me, this is what makes a story great.

    The best part about this story is that it still can ring true today. Loved every minute.

    "A blast from the past!!!"

    I loved the movie and years later I decided to read the book and boy I'm glad I did. The book goes into so much more detail. Very seldom do you find a book that makes you want to cry, laugh and get mad all at the same time. To think at one time this was a way of life in the south and I'm from the south. Carl Lee and Jake make a great team. I suggest you read this book especially if you've seen the movie. You will love it. John Grisham makes books easy to read and suspenseful all the way through.

    "Good Book"

    It was a good book. I would read it again. If you like legal thrillers, this is a good book for you.

    "Enjoyed"

    A great story with smooth narrative. But a little long and way too many n words. The narrator is superb and you will have no problem following which character is talking. I have no regrets using a credit on this excellent book.

    "Fantastic Narration"

    Excellent story. Excellent reading. Listen to this and then Sycamore Row. The author weaves a tale so vivid you won't be able to hit stop.

    "Good beginning, strong middle, thunderous end."

    Fearlessly written. Grisham holds nothing back. This page turner will stir your emotions and force you to look deep inside your soul to face your most honest feelings about a sensitive subject.

    "A time to kill"

    I was disappointed with the reading of this book. Sentences repeated several times. The reader was not as good as most. All in all, the reader made it worse for the story.
