Prolific author's book review
By: John Grisham
3 out of 5
I usually don’t read prolific authors and have not read Grisham in a long time. However, when on vacation and your Kindle dies you read what is available. A reader cannot critique an author like Grisham – his writing is superb, his research (if necessary) is evident, his characters and storyline are well developed. Therefore, one can only critique the story itself, which will obviously vary by each and every reader. I felt this story was catching and very exciting… at the beginning. Then as it continued it became very predictable, even the twist at the end wasn’t earthshattering. I expected less predictability from Grisham as in some of his older works I have read. Of course, with a great plot and well developed novel, if you don’t mind the possibility of figuring out the thriller The Racketeer is an enjoyable quick read – just not one of my ordinary and preferred genres.
