A Time to KillHs of racial violenceas he delivers a compelling tale of uncertain justice in a small southern townClanton Mississippi The life of a ten year old girl is shattered by two drunken and remorseless young men The mostly white town reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime Until her Original Mid 90s Star Only Review – 5 StarsRe Read in 2020 Review – 4 StarsYou will notice a drop in the stars above but you can take that with a grain of salt It is still a great book that will pull you in and not let go If you are familiar with Grisham’s work this is where it all began and I think some consider it mainly downhill from here Not necessarily a big downhill – but it sure does seem in some aspects like he was at the top of his game for his first few novels He mentioned in his forward that this one almost did not get published but the success of The Firm helped generate interest and I am very glad it didThis is not an easy book to read but fiction based on hard truths never is There is very graphic and shocking sexual assault and racism So while they add to a powerful story some may find it difficult to read Knowing this be sure to proceed with cautionThe reason for the slight downturn in stars for me is that it just didn’t feel as smooth to me as I remembered Maybe I was looking at an old favorite through rose colored glassed before I re read The thought that kept going through my head especially after reading the forward and seeing that it almost didn’t get published is that it felt like it was a bit rough with a lot of coincidences drawn out scenes followed by rushed scenes etc Nothing that was severe enough t ruin the experience but enough that it was noticeable to meIf you are a Grisham fan it is likely that you already read this If you are a Grisham fan and you haven’t read this I am actually not really sure you can call yourself a Grisham fan So you should remedy that right away
