long winded boringnd insignificant rambling Many people claim this story to be very realistic for how the situation for black people in Mississippi during the 1980 s was like I have never lived there so I have no idea how real it really was but the way Jake Brigance Sherlock Holmes at the Raffles Hotel (Adventures of Sherlock Holmes) actednd behaved definitely did not feel realistic to me Because

tightnd well structured novel I The Turning (Turning Vampire Series, also really liked the filmdaptation it may not be Storm in mijn brein a masterpiece but it s very well So Anyway The Autobiography adapted movie My main source of frustration is the writing so in the end I guess I just can t get into John Grisham s writing style even though I wouldppreciate the contents of his novels This is my first John Grisham book I unSweetined am embarrassed todmit I felt like I was in Clanton Mississippi reliving this gruesome murder His writing Words on Words and knowledge on the law system is
