BUT- I wanted to put one anyway. I know this book has been around for a long time. I think I saw the movie many, many years ago.

What a wonderfully written story right? The characters are all believable, the story is truly a reflection of the deep rooted racism in the south. The story is written so well that you can see a movie play out in your mind. You can see it. To me, this is what makes a story great.

The best part about this story is that it still can ring true today. Loved every minute.

A blast from the past!!!

I loved the movie and years later I decided to read the book and boy I'm glad I did. The book goes into so much more detail. Very seldom do you find a book that makes you want to cry, laugh and get mad all at the same time. To think at one time this was a way of life in the south and I'm from the south. Carl Lee and Jake make a great team. I suggest you read this book especially if you've seen the movie. You will love it. John Grisham makes books easy to read and suspenseful all the way through.
