Book Description

Oct. 22 2013
John Grisham takes you back to where it all began . . .

John Grisham's A Time to Kill is one of the most popular novels of our time. Now we return to that famous courthouse in Clanton as Jake Brigance once again finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial-a trial that will expose old racial tensions and force Ford County to confront its tortured history.

Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier.

The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly? And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known as Sycamore Row?

In Sycamore Row, John Grisham returns to the setting and the compelling characters that first established him as America's favorite storyteller. Here, in his most assured and thrilling novel yet, is a powerful testament to the fact that Grisham remains the master of the legal thriller, nearly twenty-five years after the publication of A Time to Kill.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must read Nov. 7 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're a Grisham fan you will love this book. Another masterpiece of intrigue about the "Ole South" and the characters that define it. I got wrapped up in the plot and could not stop turning the pages until I was done!
Enjoy one of the best books of the season.

1.0 out of 5 stars Did I miss the good part? Jan. 16 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read quite a few Grisham books, and I purchased this one due to all the high reviews. In truth though I thought this book was extremely boring. Once I hit the half-way mark I almost decided to start again, convinced that I must have missed something crucial that was needed to actually enjoy the book. Other than some interesting knowledge given to the reader near the end of the book, the rest of this book is basically filler disguised as a legal thriller. This is one of the only reviews I've ever given on here, but I had to leave it lest anyone else waste an evening or two of their time like I did.

Another five star by Grisham justice at its best too bad it seldom happens this way in reality.
I love the Grisham style of suspense without the blood and gore of many other authors. Great read!

4.0 out of 5 stars None Nov. 14 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A good read with returning favorite characters, however I found it somewhat predictable. I was waiting for those twists & turns that never seemed to appear. Not quite the explosive ending I was hoping for but still an interesting story overall.

An amazing follow up to Grisham's first novel. As with the first book, this one captures the no so clean motives of this small town

2.0 out of 5 stars Not my favourite Dec 15 2013
By M Short
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I felt the book was slow and dragged in places. I am not one to put a book down and not finish it. Took me quite a while to finish this book. It was not riveting. The ending was better than I thought it would be.

5.0 out of 5 stars To buy or not to buy March 5 2014
By SonoPicto TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Yes I know my review will be about the purchase more than the book itself. I was shopping at Chapters and came upon this book sat down and began reading. Fascinating was my first impression a book you don t want to put down. My Big issue is that chapters was charging 32$ + tax so I decided to wait and check Amazon.

Surprise it s only 16$ + tax that is quite a difference. We want to encourage libraries and book store but how much more are we ready to give , in this case it is too much. Likewise we don t want to encourage Billionaires like Wal-Maret but do we have a choice. That being said the book is excellent and the decision is yours where do you Buy??
