Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham

Will we see more stories about Sebastian

I have always enjoyed John Grishams books. However, this one would not be a favorite. It was hard to like any of the characters. Several mentioned were just barely part of the story, if at all. I couldn't find much of the story plausible, and was disappointed, as I enjoy books about legal actions. Keep writing Mr. Grisham, and I will keep reading.

Waste of words

Wish I had my 17 hours of reading time back. Pointless rambling. If you tried to read this and failed, don't feel bad. I hated every page. I refused to let it defeat me.

Great history lesson included

Enjoyed learning about the history of our country, that wasn't as boring as sitting in a classroom. Following the generations, and reading about the forming of New York, and the roles their families played was exceptional.

Needed a handkerchief

I read this book in 2 days, while on vacation in Las Vegas. I couldn't put it down. It was sad, but also interesting, due to the time frame of late 1920's, and early 30's. It also had a running time frame 70 years later. Just an enjoyable story.

A lot can happen in a matter of days

3 women, from very different walks of life, come together in the 1930's. Life was different then, so what they pull off, was pretty amazing. Good descriptions of life in the 30's but just a little hard to follow with the dates. The story takes you back and forth by days, giving you the action that happened, then going back and setting up the steps that were taken. It also went from 1930 into 1969. Still, it was an interesting story and I don't regret reading this book.

Too sad for me

From the beginning you know it's going to be sad. It just never goes anywhere else. Sorry.
