it was amazing

John Grisham uses third person narration in this novel. He shows you the point of view of the lawyers, the Ku Klux clan, the little girl who is molested and left to die, the men who abuse her, her heart-broken father, the police officer who accidentally gets shot, and others. No stone is left unturned. By using “he” or “she” in the narration, Grisham smoothly switches to the point of view of different characters. I find third person narration useful in essays, poetry, novels and any other mode of story-telling which include a cast of characters.
