John Grisham

Of late I have been writing about a lot of John Grisham's works I have been reading like crazy on my blog. Well there is a good reason behind all the reading.

Around the first week of February I decided to read all of John Grisham's work in 2008. But why John Grisham, well there are couple of reasons for it

1. Mr. Grisham has been churning out bestsellers for the past 15-20 years pretty consistently. So it good to get in touch with one of the bestseller authors of our times.

2. Some of his works I have read before (e.g. the Chamber) and seen couple of movies based on his works (e.g. Pelican Breif, the Runaway Jury) I liked the detailing about characters, the explanation of the US justice system, social issues brought along with court cases like in the Rainmaker the case is against the medical insurance companies or like in Runaway Jury it was against the gun laws in the US.

3. Last but not the least I like Mr.Grisham's narration a lot. He is a very good story teller. Once you pick up the book it is hard to keep it down.

So where do I stand on my reading assignment. Well the following is the list of all of John Girsham's work
