Wasn't too keen on this Grisham novel. I thought it sounded really good, and I usually enjoy his books, but I felt that Grisham fell a little short this time. Some of the material was pretty dry. I understand it is important for us to know the laws and guidelines surrounding capital punishment in order to understand the book, but perhaps a little too much information was shared.
I wish we had gotten to know both Donte and Travis a little bit better. I did think that both Keith and Robbie were well written, and developed nicely. Reva too was a very interesting character - someone I could see living in a small community. I started off not really liking her, but grew compassionate when she realized her mistake and withdrew from the public eye. As much as Wallace stuck to the background, his reluctance to take a front row seat added so much to Reva's personality for me. He behaved exactly the way I would expect someone would living with a larger than life personality as he had been doing.
