Good morning, good morning, good morning!
Well, what did y’all think of our latest read, John Gr.isham’s “The R.acketeer?”
I thought it was okay, nothing spectacular. The first half of the book just plodded along and the second half wrapped everything up pretty neatly. Too neatly really. I know this was a work of fiction, but there didn’t seem to be any real impediments to the plan that Malcom Bannister and his friends pulled off and I was surprised at the lack of barriers in the story. Additionally – and I’ve said this before – I like to have someone to root for (or against) in a story and I just didn’t find myself that vested in any character in the book one way or another.
This was the first Gr.isham book I’ve ever read and I was expecting more of a page-turning thriller. Guess that just was not to be.
Anyhoo, go forth to the comments and let the discussion begin. As always, I’ll jump in with my thoughts and opinions throughout the day.
If you weren’t able to join us for this read, I certainly hope you’ll consider joining us next go ’round.
