3.0 out of 5 stars Another hard to read Boone book,, May 21 2014

I bought the series of 5 books, simply because there was no warning that the books are for teenagers and I'm 78, and I've been reading Grisham from before he was writing even. These books were very difficult to comprehend, mostly because the first one didn't have an ending. I kept on reading them all-;), and discovered there was so much repetitiveness in each book from one to another, I don't know how a young teenager would have my patience to read them all. I am a retired entrepreneur from the print industry, from machine sales to press operator to proofreader to 2 book author myself, I admire and enjoyed John Grisham so much over the years I thought he should be aware of his proofreader? Publisher?

I was happy to learn a lot about class-action lawsuits, because I was nearly killed by our medical system and mixed up medications, I just couldn't afford to get into it. At least I know what it all entails.
