This book differs quite a bit from his usual lawyer tales, and is quite a bit slower. It's interesting to see a different side to his writing, but I did not prefer it.

I love Grisham's voice in all his novels. This was a departure from the legal mystery genre, but it was an easy, enjoyable read. Great for any football fan, anyone from a small town, or who feels nostalgic about their high school "glory days."

This is more literary than what John Grisham usually writes. Standing alone as a departure from his courtroom dramas with all the mystery and suspense, Bleachers shows a new side of Grisham as a writer. He can write in other genres and still be the well-loved author whose characters come off the page.

Even though I am not a football fan, this is an excellent book. Really captures the feeling of hometowns, team spirit and friendship in the face of adversity.

Me and a couple of friends read this book for school and we all loved it. It's a sad tale of a small town losing they're amazing football coach, Coach Rake, that led them to many victories and an all-american quarterback, Neely Crenshaw, coming back to his small hometown to mourn the death of his coach. In this book the characters share many stories of thier times with Rake and what really went on in the locker room during the championship game.
