My admiration for this man started when my classmate let me borrow his book entitled “The Client”. It did not occur to me that I would like the book. The title speaks for itself, sounds like I’m about to read something out of the circle of my interest. But I gave it a try…
Reading the first chapter has been a series of endless repetition. Why? Because again, it’s not my genre to read courthouse, mystery, crime and thriller stories. I find it so difficult to comprehend and appreciate the scenario described by the book. The characters are all typical, but they’re tangled with strange personalities. That’s why I need to do an act of being a redundant type of reader. There was a point that pops in my mind that I’ll just return the book and pretend that I finished it and I liked everything about it.
But something happened that moves me from chapter one up in the succeeding chapters. That caused me to do no stop in reading. Every page was irresistible and it’s like begging to be read aloud. Another thing here was, even taking a bath and eating had been a difficult task for me.
His book was crafted beautifully and it is embedded with lessons that a reader can carry on all the days of his life. You are and will always be my favorite author, John Grisham.
P.S. I downloaded ALL your books in my eBook library. I already have five books in hardbound version. But please know, someday you will occupy the most special corner of my library.
I was very inspired seeing his video as a graduation commencement speaker.
