Time for my third book review from December’s reading list, Gray Mountain by John Grisham. Apologies for the lateness of this review! I didn’t get a lot of reading done in December, but I have caught up now and made a start on January’s list!
Gray Mountain by John Grisham: A Review
Blurb from the back cover
Donovan Gray is ruthless and fearless. Just the kind of lawyer you need deep in small town Appalachia.
Samantha Kofer is a world away from her former life at New York’s biggest law firm. If she is going to survive in coal country, she needs to start learning fast.
Because, as Donovan knows only too well, the mountains have their own laws. And standing up for the truth means putting your life on the line…
My thoughts on the book
I love John Grisham books generally and this one is no exception. I really enjoy the courtroom dramas, and although this one doesn’t have a lot of courtroom stuff, it still has a lot of lawyer based parts and there’s plenty of drama!
This book tells the story of Samantha, who is thrust into a very small town law practice after working for one of the biggest firms. It tells of her struggle to adapt and her relationships with the various other lawyers in the small town.
Don’t be put off due to the small town – there is a lot happens here!
Conclusion and rating
Fast paced and very readable, this book is a page turner that will keep you guessing until the very end! I might be a little biased due to really liking this author’s work, but I would highly recommend it for anyone who loves a bit of drama and the busy life of a lawyer at a law firm! 5/5
