RBRC: The Rainmaker by John Grisham
Happy May Day to you!
My April read for the Recycled Book Reading Challenge is ‘The Rainmaker‘ by John Grisham. Grisham is a well-known writer and his books always carry a sense of intrigue with them. I like reading John Grisham novels. They carry with them a sense of suspense, but it is not so overdone as some authors, which allows the reader some sense of security that all is well with characters and the suspense is somewhat more about what the characters will do to achieve their goals.
This particular book was also made into a film version with Matt Damon acting the character Rudy. I have not seen this movie, so I am unable to say if the movie was better or the film.
I liked this book. Grisham has a way of pulling his readers into the story within the first chapters. The writing is good, understandable. I am not so familiar with legal sayings, but he somehow always finds a way of explaining them, or at least making the context clear.
I would recommend this book. I think it would be best for adult readers, only because the storyline might be a bit dry at times for a youth audience.
