I've reread most of the John Grisham books, but it's a safe bet I'll never reread this one. I found it very difficult to get through because the main character (the prisoner) was so unpleasant and unrelatable.

FWIW, it's well written; this is simply a matter of personal taste.

I had a hard time putting this book down. This was one of John Grisham's finest! Sad but captivating story that could have actually happened. This book is a must read in my opinion

A rather simple story of sad characters in a sad culture of prejudice and violence, I had no sympathy for the prisoner nor could I understand why the grandson was working so hard for him to continue living. The drama around appealing for reprieve was beyond comprehension. Interesting as an insight into a different culture but really, I was a small story based on small characters.

This book has the ability to put you right into the middle of the plot and you almost feel like you're one more person in "the chamber" at the end. Very good book

The large print made it much easier to read!

The book describes in an awful lot of pages the last minute appeals for a warranted death sentence. Plot had no surprises at all.
