Laura's Reviews > The Appeal
Dec 19, 2008
I'm a Grisham fan and enjoyed the book, but don't think it was one of his best. The plot twist at the end came kind of late to impact the story correctly and parts in the middle were a little slow. I fear that the book's premise that judgeships are too political and people are too easily bought is likely all too accurate, and the story causes some thought in that area. One has to wonder, however, how appointments would necessarily resolve that problem -- especially in light of the problems Illinois is facing in appointing their next senator. It's a good book to read, especially for those of us who like Grisham.
