Sycamore Row John Grisham read online review & book description:


Don’t miss an original essay by John Grisham in the back of the book.

John Grisham takes you back to where it all began. One of the most popular novels of our time, A Time to Kill established John Grisham as the master of the legal thriller. Now we return to Ford County as Jake Brigance finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial that exposes a tortured history of racial tension.
Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County’s most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises many more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly? And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known as Sycamore Row?

  • Realistic and satisfying

    By DMD TX
    Realistic characters and context. Well written as with all of his novels. I would like to see Jake again and maybe develop his personal relationships a little more in depth.

    I’ve read many of Mr. Grisham’s novels. This one escaped me so many years ago. I’ve read several Ford County novels, and the legal thrillers, and also the unusual Painted House masterpiece. My favorite writer, just found this in 2018. You are an inspiration to all modern day authors, Mr. Grisham. Clean, riveting, and fun. Thank you.

    This is my second time reading Sycamore Row. The good thing about getting old is you forget how books ended so it’s fun to read the exceptional ones over again. Great writing, great storytelling.

  • Not one of his best works

    By joe.c.o.45
    Decent plot with somewhat predictable yet still enthralling ending. Dozens of characters to remember though few are developed to their potential. Nowhere near the original that was so deeply captivating.

    Finally read this and was not at all disappointed. The intricate circumstances, lives and goals were really presented in an interesting and understandable way. I was captivated by the deep emotions and the realistic friendships that existed between lawyers, police and the judge. The ending was so satisfactory, although I could not come up with a solution on my own. I have a lot of reading of John Grisham to do!

    Another page turner by Grisham. The overtones of the ending, however, leave you more depressed than his usual feel good endings.
