The Confession by John Grisham

Rating: 3.5/5

Genre: Mystery/Thriller

A Pastor, A Psycho And An Advocate Walked Into A Bar
Gripping, very fast paced and it really gets you into it. A good book with an interesting storyline. It can get very depressing though. And at times when things start going wrong and don’t happen as they should you feel so frustrated at not being able to jump into the book and do something about it. This only goes to show how well its written to get you that involved.

Although the basic story of murder is age-old, the death penalty angle and the sense of hope & urgency at every twist and turn gives it a different twist. You end up getting mad at how the system works and so on. All the characters from the pastor, cops & advocate to the murderer & victims are rather cliché but fit well into the plot.
I would like to change some of the sad bits in the story though, not necessarily a fairytale ending but just a bit less heart wrenching. I was honestly almost in tears in certain sections. Wonder why it hasn’t been made into a movie yet, it’s got all the ingredients.

The really interesting bit is the note at the end by the author. He says that if anyone has a problem with certain legal things he’s written or got wrong and would like to write to him about them…DONT! It’s just a story, read and enjoy!
