While reading The Appeal I was greatly anticipating earning the opportunity to savour the sweet taste of improbable victory that is always a main ingredient in any Grisham recipe. This book however is so rich with the mundane proceedings of common court room boredom, legal wrangling, and judicial campaigning that the most important ingredients are not enjoyable. The characters are distant and un-clever, the plot is linear and long, and twists are morose or missing. Please look elsewhere for your fill of exciting drama and suspense.
