After a Looong night last night and a couple hours this morning i finished the Grisham book! Am also in the process of reading the second book by George R R Martin 'A Clash of Kings' i started watching the series on HBO, then no longer have HBO, so decided to read the books. Have had a hard time. Sometimes i have a hard time with sci-/fantasy which is what it is i think. Dragons and weird creatures and lots of battles and indiscriminate gore. Never could get into Harry Potter and tried Lord of the Rings. But could never 'get' them. Romance, some mystery like Sue Henry ( have a hard time with that too as my mind does not work that way and even when spelled out, i never understand how they got to where they did in solving) high adventure (Wilbur Smith) with lots of history thrown in. A good story will grab me, no matter the genre. Have read all of Michener and Leon Uris. Time travel, Diana Galbadon is excellent!!! She is so inconsiderate as she only puts out a book every two years, yes, you have to wait TWO years between books!!!
Oh, i could go on and on. LOVE, love. love books and my Kindle :) Altho i am torn as i like the feel and heft and smell of a book, the mystery in the words and pages. The flipping back and forth when u miss something, which u can't do on Kindle. I like to underline phrases, passages, write in the margins. Mom did that too and we enjoyed reading a book after each other, made quite a mess out of some of Michener's books.
The Grisham book is a good triste on the death penalty. And how the 'system' works, heavens i hope not this bad, really?? You have to have faith in the 'system' It has worked for a good long time, but gets warped/twisted at times i am sure, in trying, what? to be fair at all times. It moved right along as Grisham tends to do. And wouldn't be quite so compelling with a different outcome.
Have a good week.........
