The Innocent Man – John Grisham

Hussein Book Reviews

397229This is my first John Grisham reading, legal thriller is an interesting subjecy, however, this novel could easily emerge in half this size, too much off-context details and too much names got me a bit bored and a bit lost, though the case is hearth-breaking, but being a real story had some disadvantages such as not being able to know the final solution of the case, you get a load of promising leads from the first chapter, mysterious murder, wrongfully-spelled words written with catsup on walls, then another murder that’s more bizzare and mysterious with corpse whereabouts missing, you expect a breath-taking thriller and you expect – obviously – to eventually discover the solution of all that mess, but you simply – and unfortunately – don’t!, you just get a very obvious fact: Oklahoma is a terrible place to get into any trouble with police!

P.S. note to the art director or whoever put a bunch of photos at the exact middle of the book: you’ve spoiled the thriller by showing me photos of Ron and Dennis getting exonerated while I was still reading their terrible suffering in prison and death row !!!
