I am reading The Testament, by John Grisham.It's about a man named Nate who is put in charge of finding the illigitament daughter of a billionaire.She's a missionary to a remote jungle and is, as far as he knows, unreachable.So he sets out on a journey with vivid characters and challenging situations.Jevy the body guard and Milton the pilot befriend him and try to help him on his journey.I love this book.I can't stop reading because Grisham describes Nate's trials with such color and emotion.I just read a part when his plane crashed and killed a cow and it went into super-detail about the blood and guts and how the farmer got mad because cows are important.It's a great read.Dive in but be ready to get involved with the characters.They won't let you go.

I am still reading The Testament, by John Grisham.The Phlean family is completely crazy as is my family.They are especially crazy over money.After Troy Phlean jumped off the balcony of his four story house the lost their marbles and ran around like chickens with their heads cut off.This sounds remarkablly like my family.Another place in the book describes a scene where, in the plane, Jevy, Milton, and Nate run over a cow.It's very graphic and slightly distrubing but it reminded me of another book I loved.In Three, by Ted Dekker, Slater places a bomb in Kevin's dog's house and kills him because he fails to do his biding.It also is extremely graphic.The whole book is a relation to the world.But particurally the persecution of the Brazillian Indians was a reminder of the history the United States to me.
