Predictable and Weak,
This review is from: Bleachers (Mass Market Paperback)As I've not read Grisham before, I picked this book up at the library to give him a try. From what I know of him, I sense that this is not him at his best; it is a diversion from his usual thriller/mystery approach.
Regardless, this book seemed quite amateur in terms of its plot and outcome. I kept waiting for something 'big' to happen; whatever it was that Neely had to deal with. I kept wondering 'What is the conflict between he and Coach Rake'? I won't give it away, but I was terribly disappointed with what the pages revealed; it wasn't really anything at all. A lot of lead up to a dissapointing climax. I also didn't find the 'emotional' scenes the least bit emotional or riveting.
Better luck next time with Grisham. Guess I'll have to try one of his classics.
