The King of Torts by John Grisham

A Painted House
by John Grisham

Yeah I know I evidently am a big fan of John Grisham :roll: The love started with my mother, she has a bunch of hard backs and she eventually passed that on to me.

I also am a huge John Grisham fan as well Johnny! I have all his books.

Which one is your favorite? I love The Runaway Jury, The Summons, The Testament, The Firm, and The Pelican Brief (Kind of a lot of favorites I guess). His last two books have left things way to open at the end. I felt like he didn't tie up loose ends in the storyline at all.


It would have to be between The King of Torts and A Painted House.

In my opinion both of them have to do with innocence and corruption. I mean I may be taking it to the extreme but still. I just love the main character of The King of Torts and how he adapts to all the things that are thrusted into his life without really becoming like the other lawyers that he has met and interacts with.

A Painted House is deep on so many levels. I mean how that young kid's mind is corrupted and all. He still seems to launch back and surprisingly he really doesn't seem to be affected in the long term.

I am still deciding we'll see when I write the reviews. \:D/

I finished Your Chariot Awaits and am moving on to The Sacrifice by Robert Whitlow.

No problem! I love passing on good books to others. If you like suspense, have you read Terri Blackstock? Her Cape Refuge Series, Newpointe 911, and Sun Coast Chronicles are fantastic.
BTW, I really enjoy Robert Whitlow too! The Sacrifice is sitting on my shelf waiting to be read! Loved The List. The verse in that book from Ephesians 6:12 came at such a crucial time for me. It was exactly what I needed in a situation I was dealing with. It also reminded me of the importance of remembering my true enemy, and how he fights to keep us close to Christ.


I love her stuff too! :D This is my first Robert Whitlow book. I have Jimmy, Mountain Top, and Deeper Water sitting on my floor right now. I didn't know where to start so i began with the earliest. Was it a good choice?

Hannah Alexander is great for suspense too! Esp if you want medical type thrillers. \:D/

I am now in the process of reading Mission to the Headhunters by Frank and Mary Drown. Despite the title, this is not a gory book. It is an autobiography about the Drown's experience as missionaries in Equador.
Perhaps I will write a review about both this book and Hinds' Feet on High Places when I have time.

I love the Anne of Green Gables series! (Anne of Avonlea is my favorite!) I'm currently in the process of trying to find the movies at a reasonable price...


Anyway, I'm currently finishing The Silmarillion and The Bourne Betrayal.

I think it was a good choice. I haven't read all of his books, but I started with the earliest one too in my reading.

Ooooh. I will have to try her books out! I always like good referrals of authors. Then I try to read everything that author has written and find another one!

I do the same thing! \:D/

She has a trilogy that is medical thriller type stuff and then another series - the Hideaway Novels I think that are kinda interconnected - like you should read them in order but oyu don't HAVE too. Like you will run into a lot fo the same characters in each book but each one focuses on a different character...if that makes sense...

At this very moment, I'm reading Call it Treason, (I forgot the Authors name; but it was made into a movie back in 1940-50, Decision Before Dawn--anybody saw it?) Yeserday I finished Beyond Band of Brothers by Major Dick Winters, and before that Band of Brothers by Stephen Ambrose. :D Good stuff.

Dreams of my Fathers is a really good book by Barack Obama. I recommend it.

The only thing about it is some language in a couple chapters. They're direct quotes from his childhood. Obama doesn't curse now but you might want to watch out for some inappropriate language. Other then that it's really good.

I'm currently reading Relentless by Robert Parrish. It seems to fall in the action/science fiction genre - the book's protagonist wakes up one person and then finds himself literally embodying the makeup of another human. I'm only ten chapters into the novel, but so far it's kept me on the edge of my seat!

"A Suitable Boy" by Vikram Seth. I'm enjoying it, but it's a marathon read. 1488 pages. Yeah, I hope I can get through it. But hey, the book review will be epic!
