  • A Mississippi story or a war story?

    Was looking forward to this book especially since Grisham was back in Mississippi. My favorite Grisham is Sycamore Row but I've read almost all. As I read I knew that there would be a twist and at the end all would be revealed. Grisham is a master at this. My negative criticism is of the exceedingly detailed and long description of the war. It seems it could be a book in itself but unnecessary in The Reckoning as the impact and extent of this horrible experience on Banning had quite successfully been previously explained.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Another Grisham Masterpiece

    On the surface it doesn’t seem like there should be much mystery or suspense or action in The Reckoning. Pete Banning is a war hero, one day he shoots and kills the local pastor, he won’t speak in his own defense, so he is facing the death penalty. He placed his wife in an insane asylum, but he won’t talk about that, either. So it all seems pretty cut and dried. All the action has happened in the past or is a foregone conclusion, and although it might be very interesting, it probably won’t be very exciting. Wrong. John Grisham is a master and this is another masterpiece. It is full of suspense and mystery and dread, first page to last. It was haunting. I couldn’t put it down. Even as I read about things that I knew for a fact had happened, I found myself hoping for another conclusion. The Reckoning says a lot about the time it is set in, people’s place in society in that time, and their belief in the structure of that society. It also says a lot about how experiences change people, and even when they are loving and caring they can be hard. Very, very hard. And sometimes when forgiveness is needed, love is just not enough to make it happen.

  • A different approach by my favorite

    This book took the reader on a more balanced approach to the ripple effects that a single lie can cause. Unexpected ending, loved every minute of it.
