The Innocent Man
After reading 16 of John Grisham's fictional books, in the past six weeks, this was an awesome read! I give great credit to the author for his tremendous research. I also give credit to the families involved as well as all the others who were wrongfully convicted. I encourage anybody who believes in the believes in the death penalty to read this book.
Court room drama
This book is all you can come to expect from John Grisham. Great read!
At first the pace of the book made up for the tedium. Eventually, as I kept waiting for the point of the ending, I was just happy happy to have it finally be finished. I would not recommend his book - it's important to The Innocence Project - but not typical of an otherwise good author.
Honestly really good!
It had some "slow" parts in the beginning, but being has how this is a true story, you'll be hooked in no time to see just how things turned out for this innocent man. A must read in my opinion!
One of the best books ever love his series ..... If u like crime and detail John Grisham is the man for you :)
What got me into reading his books
By Zach Hamilton
This book started it all for me. I love his works. But the reason I'm submitting my review is it seems people are unaware that this IS A TRUE STORY. Knowing that, read it again and you'll see it differently
I'm very disappointed in this book. Having read several books by John Grisham, and found them great, this is a major failure!
So much crazy and unbelievable police and legal work. It is bizarre to say the least. Maybe the book is a spoof on police and lawyers? I must have missed the humor.
An Innocent Man by John Grisham
I find it hard to believe this was written by the same man who wrote all those wonderful books of fiction. Perhaps Mr Grisham got lazy or just writes better using his imagination, because this was amateurish, repetitive and boring.
The Innocent Man review
It's easy to call for the death penalty in the case of horrendous murders. This book reminded me that only God should be the judge when it comes to deciding who lives and who dies.
And if one was not aware of the time period you would think you were reading a story that took place in the 1930s. This highlights how even today justice is not always the result of our legal system.
And last, even if only half of what was written about the Oklahoma prison system is true, the state should be ashamed and embarrassed.
