Rhetorical, obnoxious and predictable. Might want to avoid this one, even if you're a J. Grisham fan, at least skip the first two-thirds, as only the last eighty pages warrant any type of mention or acclaim; unfortunately you won't get much out of them if you don't force yourself to slog through the mundane beginnings. The characters feel like two-bit actors from some made for tv movie plagued with awkward dialogue. The plot stumbles back and forth between two independent themes; loosely tied together in a hybrid of presumptive racism and the ethics of capital retribution. There were one or two elements that I enjoyed so I can't leave the book undefended. The mothers of both victims are painted so differently, yet their grief and anguish seems colored by the same brush. I found these characters interesting and, particularly amusing are the antics of poor Reeva Pike or is it Yarber? Anyway who cares... I like books and I usually like J. Grisham but this one is going back to the second-hand bookstore. Although is does deliver a powerful slug to capital punishment, I can only recommend it to those redneck conservatives who's opinion might benefit from reading it. For the rest of us who already know it's wrong, it's a boring waste of time.

This was a great story, but not something I would read again or even recommend. It was kind of boring, and didn't go anywhere. The main reason I even like this book at all was because it inspired me to want to go on a journey like Taylor did.
