GRISHAM WITH HEART

My rating: 4 out of 5

Just finished John Grisham’s “The Last Juror”. I’ve probably read all his books and am quite a fan of his writing style. Usually, his hero is a lawyer or someone involved directly in the legal system, but with this book he makes a interesting change.

Set in a small Mississippi town during the 70’s The Last Juror is more a study of those turbulent times than it is a novel of the criminal justice system. Willie Traynor, a young out-of-towner, has just bought the local newspaper when the most sensational trial in the area’s history takes place. His growth as a journalist coincides with the town’s painful growth in the era of desegregation and invasion of big city commerce.

Grisham paints a compelling portrait of a time that is long gone and fills it with characters and detail that evoke fond and painful memories. Everything pivots around Miss Callie and her extended family. Traynor is the scribe who records the journey filled with joy and sorrow.
