The Confession by John Grisham – My Review

The ConfessionThe Confession by John Grisham
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I read all John Grisham’s books and most of them are excellent reads, but I found this particular book a bit hard going in places. It is a hard-hitting story of the death penalty and the killing of an innocent man, mainly because the people involved in law enforcement and courts were too eager to pin the crime on a black man and too wrapped up in their own positions to care about the truth. It makes you examine your own thoughts on the death penalty, death row, and what it means for the men held there for years. I can appreciate all the research and hard work that has gone in to writing this novel, but I must admit to skipping paragraphs and I felt the story lost its way a bit towards the end.
