I loved this book like I love most of Grisham's novels! Extremely fast paced, twisting and emotional plot, and humor that comes out of nowhere to catch you off guard and laughing despite yourself. Since everyone knows this story I won't get into that, all I'll say that this is a MUST for every Grisham fan and a great one to start with if you aren't.

What else could you expect from Grisham? Grisham takes on hard, and sometimes, harsh storyline and makes you stop and think....can you take justice in your own hands? As always, Grisham's deep detail makes you become a "part" in the book. Meaning you can sit back and say would I do the same thing? This was a page turner from the first page.

One of my favorite books. Grisham is the master storyteller. The cover of my paperback is different than the one pictured.

This is one of my favorite books. I love John Grisham. He goes into some pretty vivid details but keeps you on your toes and wondering. I would suggest anyone who loves books that were made into movies, read this book.

If you've only seen the movie, i HIGHLY recommend you pick up this book. It's one of those books you cannot put down until you finish it.

Though the story is about a trial, it is not a courtroom story. This book is about motive and how race figures into motive. An excellent plot with get dialogue and in-depth characterizations.

A Time to Kill by John Grisham is his first and best book. This is the story of Carl Lee Hailey who gets his revenge on some white trash who attacked his daughter and it is about the lawyer, Jake Brigance, who defends him. It is a page turner that will have you glued from the 1st page.

This is one of the best Grisham novels I have ever read! I could not put it down. The characters were so real and excitement that builds to very end can be felt deeply. Makes one so very aware of the racial tension that still exists, especially in the south. Very moving story.
