I have always enjoyed the works of John Grisham, I doubt that Mr. Donald Harper's comment is credible. I hope Grisham never stops writing as I found his writing amazing. Susan Schneider you made me chuckle but nice recovery, I am certain that James Patterson would consider your comment a compliment. Rhonda I agree but I must now order and read. I am sure I will be turning the pages soon. Unf
I believe it is in JG's formula to try & "flesh out" his characters as much as possible within the first few chapters, along with building the framework for his storyline. Now, although I don't believe he's always done this, it seems to be where he's gone through several of his best selling novels and it seems to work for him. While I agree, Donald, that this formula CAN make for a first chapter
Haven't enjoyed a book this good in months! This is John Grisham at his best. Don't know how he managed to switch from 1st person to 3rd person without the reader realizing it. A wonderful read! Thank you.
