I used to enjoy the occasional Grisham some time ago, then found they got a bit samey so lost all interest. My husband picked this up at a book sale and passed it on - I thought with his reccommendation.
What a load of codswallop it is. Grisham's writing is slick and smooth but that's as far as it gets. The plotline is utterly unbelievable, it's hard to get engaged with the charecters, there's practically no tension because the main character is always one step ahead and it just sort of peters out so there's no satisfyng conclusion.
I was about to start questioning my husband's intelligence then he said he though it was a load of tosh too and only passed it on to me to see what I thought.
Hmm, just joined the forum and am fumbling my way around. I'm used to forums, just not ones with quite so many sections and sub-sections...but I'll get used to it.
I've just started reading The Chamber by John Grisham. Not my usual type of book but in the interests of knowing what everyone else is raving about...
So, first question - have I started this in the right place?
Second question - has anyone else read it? What did you think of it? Was it a good choice, do you think?
