Don’t miss a sneak peek of Sycamore Row, John Grisham’s new novel inspired by A Time to Kill, in the back of the book.
The life of a ten-year-old girl is shattered by two drunken and remorseless young men. The mostly white town of Clanton in Ford County, Mississippi, reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime. Until her black father acquires an assault rifle and takes justice into his own outraged hands.
For ten days, as burning crosses and the crack of sniper fire spread through the streets of Clanton, the nation sits spellbound as young defense attorney Jake Brigance struggles to save his client’s life–and then his own.
One of the best!
I'm a huge Grisham fan and this book made me see what racism is truly like. To think that this stuff happens in real life this day and age is surreal. Movie was also real good!
A Time To Emote
Hands down, this is by far, Mr. Grisham's best book and because he had enough clout by the time the movie was made, most unusually, it was as close to being honest and true to the book as well it should have been.
Many times, an author's first novel was an abominable failure at sales. Grisham one stated that of the 5,000 books printed, only five copies sold, mostly to the bookstore owners in Mississippi he had begged to display his books. All the unsold books were returned to Dell/Random House and destroyed. Imagine the value of those autographed first editions!!!
Everyone should read this book, even if not a John Grisham. It's spellbinding, emotive, evocative and last but not least, a damned good read. In the end, John Grisham became the winner!!
A time to kill
Excellent. Every time I read it I find it more and more enthralling. So emotional and realistically described it takes you to a place where you can actually see the case happening before you and feel the reality of what it would be like to actually witness in real life. Impeccably written. I applaud John Grisham.
