At the end of this collection of stories the reader is left with a deep unsettling ambivalence On the one hand Grisham wields a sense of place and of language with a confidence that s hard to beat He places his characters in memorable finely wrought settings he gives them richly evoked material to work with he writes dialogue that has the ring of truth to it And then he observes those characters as they move live and mostly suffer with a chilly anthropological detachment and emotional distance that s initially distracting and by the end of the book has become nearly an embarrassment At every moment Grisham seems intent on reminding the reader that he s not one of them he writes with a sense of social distance that would probably raise eyebrows if his subjects were some other ethnic or regional group and not largely white southerners In short Grisham observes He s uite a good observer as it turns out but as a writer he s simply not implicated Grisham also has the bad habit of creating intriguing plots compelling characters and seductive settings and then ending every story with a whimper A few are very nearly shaggy dog stories a complicated set up for an unsatisfying pay off Since he does it in every story it s clearly a style he has adopted deliberately No doubt some readers won t be troubled by the clinical cast of Grisham s narratives and will appreciate his way of picking up a story carrying it for a while and then setting it down again without having handled it much For me the lack of empathy and the absence of resolution were eually discomfiting Planet of the Bugs uality and heart stopping drama of his previous bestsellers and is proof once why John Grisham is our most popular storyteller..

John Grisham ã 6 characters

Worldwide No bestseller John Grisham takes you into the heart of America's Deep South with a collection of stories connected by the life and crimes of Ford County a place of harsh beauty where broken dreams and final wishes convergeFrom a hard drinki. A sporadic and eclectic mix of dark and miserable storytelling made all the better for me as it was narrated by Mr Grisham himself A shadow was cast over every thought This town of Clanton seems just horrible A mix of disparate and dark characters with storylines combined My favourite without a doubt was the last story of the lovely man suffering from HIV and the selfless lady who cared for him It was a short story collection where there was not necessarily a clear ending and I think this was the point Maybe this was a lesson on realism Or pessimism Mr Grisham sounds like Barack Obama short and to the point I like listening to both clear and articulate Most of the way through I was thinking of the past President s style of speech I could listen all day The author is not a performer but did well with his odd storylines that did not have any tangible endings Really uite odd but very doable
