I love John Grisham’s legal thriller!  But lately some of his books have wandered into different territories.  The last Grisham book I’ve read was The Broker.  It’s more of a political thriller than a legal thriller.  I want the old Grisham!  The legal battles in the courtroom.  The great exchanges between opposing lawyers.  The ultimate triumph of good over lawbreakers!

And it seems that in one of his latest books, The Appeal, my wish has finally been granted!  I’ve already got the hardback of The Appeal and it’s proudly displayed in my bookcase.  But I also usually buy a paperback edition so I can read it in my travels, i.e., my MRT commutes.

I have a lot of John Grisham books.  He is my 2nd favorite author, after Stephen King.  I have all his books from The Partner up to The Appeal.  After a visit in Book Sale, Alphaland, I saw A Time to Kill.  I saw the movie but never read the book.  So I bought it.  The movie was excellent and since usually the book is better so I can only assume that the book is more excellent!
