This is one of the greatest books to come forth from this prolific writer. It encompasses the great fullness of living in smallville Mississippi. I could not add or extract one thing from this acclaimed novel. I am touched that it takes such care and finesse to describe the situation of 1970 in rural Mississippi. It makes one feel like they understand the times and this relates greatly with the characters. The characters were of great impact to the moral text. Underlying the books main topic, was the undertoe that pulled Willie to Miss Callie. Only those with great knowledge of Mississippi today and then could relate. Mississippi may be seen as "backwards and rednecked" but this showed that thru it all we only care about those that we are closely knit to in life, family, church, or acquaintances.

The Last Juror is not up to par with John Grisham's standards for captivating reading. There were too many descriptions of and too much time wasted on eating food and drinking liquor. I found myself using the Evelyn Woods method of reading this book skipping unnessary sentences to get the idea he was trying to convey.
The beginning was really hard hitting and too graphic. It was hard trying to connect with the characters in the book and was centered on one main character that had little to do with the ultimate ending. Characters in this novel were all over the place.
I think it had more of a racial/political connotation than a legal one.
