    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I m a great Grisham fan, and I can say without a doubt that this is not one of his best works The truth is, the book goes from very fast and very gripping to very slow and very girly far too quickly It s like reading two different books intertwined, and I couldn t care less about the second one I seriously doubt John

    Back with another new novel, John Grisham seeks to expand his horizons with a story free of much legalese, but with the slightest hint of some criminal activity A heist at one of Princeton s libraries puts a number of original F Scott Fitzgerald s manuscripts in the hands of some career criminals Quick acting FBI agents are able to scoop up two of the five, but the others are still in hiding, alon

    Your secrets are safe I can t think of a soul I would want to tell And these secrets are within a crime A jumbo, over the top, kick in the door of modern literature, and pull down the shades type of heist Dollar signs that even have dollar signs.When a group of well rehearsed thieves make their way into the tombs of Princeton s lower vaulted depths, they come away with a golden grail in the form of

    I enjoyed thisthan some other recent John Grisham novels I have read Many parts of it were 3 stars and many parts were 4 stars I will compromise at 3.5 stars but round up to 4 on the official scale since I have been so harsh on Grisham lately The main appeal of this book is that books are central to the theme Hardcore readers which most of you probably are will appreciate the discussion of bookstore

    What a fun summer read I haven t read a John Grisham book since the 90s, but I picked up Camino Island after seeing a positive review I was intrigued because the story is a departure from Grisham s usual legal thrillers The plot is that priceless manuscripts by F Scott Fitzgerald were stolen from a Princeton library, and the hunt is on to catch the thieves and save the papers.The novel starts off wit

    I know it s been a few several years since I read Grisham, but, my gosh, he has changed Often accused of cranking out legal thrillers and following a specific formula, maybe he wanted to depart to a simpler, softer,feminine style If that was his intention, he succeeded I found the subject matter very entertaining, otherwise I probably would not have finished it The mystery not much of a mystery at all

  8. Tim Tim says:

    Seldom has such a good premise and beginning of a novel fallen as far and as fast as this The story languishes with not one, but two inept agencies looking for perpetrators, despite apprehending some immediately The weak and incomplete ending finishes this bottomless piece 0 of 10 stars

  9. Scott Scott says:

    Every time I read a book by John Grisham, I am consistently reminded of what a great storyteller he is His style is compact, direct and to the point, and pulls you in immediately I wasn t 10 pages into his new book Camino Island and I knew that I would be spending most of the day focused on reading it The good news is that it was worth it.Rather than focusing on lawyers, it takes aim at the world of book

    This isn t a John Grisham book , it s a bit of froth It s starts off well with The Heist that s not a spoiler it s the title of the first chapter Then it descends into aimless meanderings among the colony of authors on the island Almost zero suspense Absolutely zero thrills The ending was phoned in If you want an extremely gentle ride through the soporific world of book authors then it will be good I supp
