Grisham's New Book Sooley
Just my opinion but it's the worst book I've ever read & I read a lot. Covers a whole, game by game, season of the main character. Every game, 25 +. 95% of the book just basketball game summaries. And the ending is horrible.

His last few offerings have been total crap.

Grisham is that type of author whose best and worst are really far apart.

"The Firm" was his masterpiece. It was a classic. He wrote several after that that were entertaining page turners. But there came a point in time when it appeared that he started churning out books just to meet deadlines. I will probably pass on this one.

When he writes to tell a story he is good. When he writes to make a sociopolitical point he is horrid.

Not his early stuff but I find his latest alot like eating McDonalds. You really want it but are filled with regret after you consume it.

Haven't read anything from him in over 15 years probably but ran through a ton of his that I really enjoyed back in the day.

Looking at his novels "The Last Juror" in 2004 was about the last one I read.

Anything past that I should try and read?

The Pelican Brief, A Time To Kill, The Firm, and The Client were great.

Haven't read anything recently in part because of the large number of people who say he quit trying once he had FU money.

This. Save yourself a few bucks and don’t bother with Camino Winds. Major disappointment.

I stopped reading his stuff after I read "The Confession." I used to love his stuff and would probably have to say "The Testament" was my favorite. It was unlike most of the others he wrote.

Horrible. I’m convinced he’s not even the one writing anymore.

The only thing of his I've read that's written in this century is Playing for Pizza which was recommended by a friend. It's light reading, fairly short, and reasonably fun. Nothing earth shattering but much better than the last few before it.

I liked Bleachers, obviously straying away from the legal thriller

I wish the Appeal would be made into a movie. Great book and great story line.

re: Grisham's New Book Sooley
This is very sad. Sometimes my expectations are not true. I have to write a lot and it is for this reason that I always consult the professional writers I find here: LINK /. I also love to read, and sometimes it happened to me that I expected much more from the book than it actually turned out. Therefore, the external perspective of work is very important for me.

In fact, we are not talking about the practice of writing an essay. Writing an essay depends on your language proficiency and your knowledge of the world. Be able to write good essays,read books and, most importantly, read newspapers. They give you an idea of current affairs and help improve your writing style as well as conversation.

Many of the students work after school or college. Using the service https://www.topwritersreview.com/reviews/kingessays/ students can cope with both work and study. Some of the lazy people who have used this service do not get excited about the idea of writing. My girlfriend and I don't have time to study, and it's easier for us to pay money for it.
