Another Book By John Grisham, A Painted House

The day before yesterday, I got another two novels, A Painted House and The Partner, by John Grisham from Ds-Book along the Street 240. Having just finished the first three chapters out of 34 from the former, I am little surprised to learn that it is a novel by John Grisham without lawyers. Actually out of four, it is his first non-legal fictions published in 2001. Inspired by his childhood in Arkansas, it is set around a cotton-farming family in rural Arkansas in the summer of 1952 after Second World War. What is uncommon to me was its narration through the eyes of seven-year-old Luke; though, for sure, it is not a bedtime story.

“Some of Grisham’s best writing… Even without lawyers, A Painted House earns a well-deserve favorable verdict,” wrote The Atlanta Journal- Constitution.

  1. But reading before bed is the best time I could take from book. ^_^

    All in all, it is as captivating as the ones with lawyers, though somehow I could manage to finish reading it in a few days (it takes me forever to finish a book that does not interest me).

  3. It doesn’t take me forever but likely years. lolz Anyway, just want to add more on that that it is never fast enough to finish a book from our favourite author. 😉

    Actually, I intended to say “…, it is NOT as captivated as…” hehe.. I do have many books that I have tried to finished a few times but never finish them. That is great of you that you can force yourself to read sth you don really like, sis.
