A Time to Kill by John Grisham is this week’s book recommendation.
Genre: Legal Thriller
Why should you pick it up?
I love legal dramas. I think there is a certain charm, not to mention, wit to them which makes them all the more exciting. And when it comes to legal thrillers in terms of books, does anybody do it better than John Grisham? Nah, I think not.
Now this book is brilliant (needless to say!). I don’t think anyone who loves and reads Grisham would have missed this. But still, I had to include this in my list of book recommendations because honestly, the book is brilliant. The plot, the dialogues, the storytelling and the twists, it’s bloody perfect.
You must, really must read it. And then perhaps you could go on to watch the movie adaptation which has Matthew McConaughey in it. But I must warn you, the book definitely is much much better than the adaptation (as always!).
So, go on, read the book and thank me later!
Before The Firm and The Pelican Brief made him a superstar, John Grisham wrote this riveting story of retribution and justice — at last, it’s available in a Doubleday hardcover edition. In this searing courtroom drama, best-selling author John Grisham probes the savage depths of racial violence…as he delivers a compelling tale of uncertain justice in a small southern town…Clanton, Mississippi.
The life of a ten-year-old girl is shattered by two drunken and remorseless young men. The mostly white town reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime. Until her black father acquires an assault rifle and takes matters into his 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.
