Well that's 1 week of my life I'll never get back. Wretchedly long winded.
I could not put this down. From the minute I picked it up to the minute I finished it. 2 days. The plot is amazing, the characters rich and luminous. Passion, ethics, history and everyday people woven into a tapestry of life and sorrow. Bravo to the author.
A hanger-on to the last. However, I got a little lost in the finale of the truth finally being told. The marriage of the pastor’s widow as well as the engagement between Joel and Mary were not developed in more detail. Overall, an magnetic account of the death march and guerrilla warfare.
Forced myself to finish the book and expected a better end. Historically accurate though .
A disjointed and painfully long book. Disappointing for a John Grisham novel.
Just a terrible read. Story put together poorly, outcome predictable and mostly filler from start to finish.
