Book challenge 2012 ~ The Brethren: John Grisham
Today I promised myself an early night but instead stayed up and finished my second book of 2012. This means I am still on track to complete my 24 in 2012, hopefully more. Book number two was The Brethren by John Grisham. I have always wanted to read a John Grisham novel. He seems to be one of those authors that everyone has read at least one of their books. The Brethren just so happened to be the chosen book as I picked it up for $2 at an op shop.
So what did I think of the Brethren? I liked the two separate stories that collided, I liked that it was suspenseful but not so suspenseful that it annoyed the hebber jebbers out of me and I also liked that it was clever without being to complicated (think the first 100 pages of Girl with the Dragon tattoo).
What didn't I like? I didn't like any of the characters, none of them had much depth and this is usually something I look for in a book. I also thought it was going to have a really clever ending, I liked the ending but I expected more.
Would I recommend it? Definitely, it is an easy read with an interesting storyline, I give it 6 tacos out of 10, yum tacos.
Have you read any John Grisham novels? Anything that you would recommend I read?
