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 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.

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.

Bleachers is an OK book, but in my opinion, not one of Grisham's best.
