I loved this book. The ending could have been better, but overall I thought it was great, but aren't all John Grisham books good?
Alexander Moller

I have just finished reading this wonderful book. All I can say is that I am VERY impressed.
It is a brilliant book and it has left a deep mark in my mind.
The only part that dissapointed me was the ending, which i thaught could be better.
Now, the next step is making a movie...
Can't wait to read the summons...

This is the kind of book I would read any day!

Hmmmm...
I'm a big Ghisham fan, and I thought the development of the plot was great, but I was really expecting a BIG finish. The main players & plot just seemed to fizzle out. I really thought this book could have ended with a great cliff-hanger and lead nicely into a 2nd book about the outcome of the new President.

Oh well... it kept me entertained,
Sierra

I enjoyed this book, however, it was one of those books that seems like it's never going to end. The plot line is interesting enough, but for someone who has a short attention span, it takes a while to get in to.

This book was hard to get into. It wasn't that interesting and it didn't catch my attention like his other books. other then this book, I like alot of the others.
Alli

It was a little boring. It seems Grisham's books are getting more and more boring. Used to, I couldn't put it down.


This book was okay, it kinda kept my attention. The begining was sort of slow, but as I read on i got more into it.
