Absolutely dreadful!!!!

by Melissa Davis on 9/25/2003

I am a huge John Grisham fan. However, this is the absolute worst read of all time! I couldn't get into the story at all. Don't waste your money on this loser. Read More

Author Info
John Grisham
John Grisham woke up at 5:00 every morning for three years to complete his first novel, A TIME TO KILL. Working as a lawyer and a member of Mississippi's state legislature, Grisham published his debut thriller with a small and somewhat unknown publisher, receiving only local readership in his home state. He finally burst on to the national scene with his second novel, THE FIRM, a legal thriller that sold millions of copies and stayed on the New York Times best-seller list for 47 weeks. Shortly afterward, Grisham moved to Oxford, Mississippi, where he began working on a series of new legal thrillers, including THE PELICAN BRIEF and THE CLIENT, all of which became bestsellers and were subsequently made into successful films. Having graduated from the University of Mississippi in Oxford with a law degree in 1981, Grisham went on to base his popular thrillers on his experience as a specialist in criminal defense. His once-unknown debut, A TIME TO KILL, was made into a major motion picture in 1996.
Praise
"This is a book designed to make a certain type of grown man cry, and the author knows exactly which buttons to push....What saves the story from melodrama is Grisham's refusal to offer pat resolutions; he allows his ambivalent characters to remain so. It also helps that he's a surefooted storyteller with an undeniable mastery of plotting, pacing and tone."
From the Publisher
Annotation John Grisham ventures out of the suspense field and onto the football field in this story of a once-great high school quarterback, Neely Crenshaw, who, years later, returns to the scene of his glory days to attend a memorial to his old coach, the controversial Eddie Rake--a man about whom Neely has decidedly mixed feelings. And those are what he has to come to terms with if he wants to bury the past and look forward to the future.
Editors Note High school all-American Neely Crenshaw was probably the best quarterback ever to play for the legendary Messina Spartans. Fifteen years have gone by since those glory days, and Neely has come home to Messina to bury Coach Eddie Rake, the man who molded the Spartans into an unbeatable football dynasty.Now, as Coach Rake’s “boys” sit in the bleachers waiting for the dimming field lights to signal his passing, they replay the old games, relive the old glories, and try to decide once and for all whether they love Eddie Rake – or hate him. For Neely Crenshaw, a man who must finally forgive his coach – and himself – before he can get on with his life, the stakes are especially high.
