Not what you would expect..
on February 27, 2008
As a die hard John Grisham fan, I have to say I'm a little disappointed with his latest book: The Appeal. Although the book begins with all the makings of a classic Grisham thriller, the book stumbles upon plot development, focusing too much on the development of the appeal and political processes, while largely ignoring key themes and character development that has been a consistent part of Grisham style. Regardless, this book is still a good read and does provide some entertainment value.
