This is a very good story which is different from several other Grisham novels in that it is partly set in Brazil. Another one that is hard to put down!

I enjoyed this book especially the bits set in the area of South America called the Panatal. This book is now going back to daffodil-2.

REVIEW:- " I've just read this book for the second time as I could remember really enjoying it first time around. At first I thought I wasn't going to enjoy it so much as before but after a chapter or two I really got into the story and empathised with the main character Nate. I was surprised at how emotional I got about Nate-a recovering alcoholic. John Grisham described so well Nate's hallucinations when he was ill. I felt I was there with him. I would add that I think John Grisham's earlier novels are mostly superior to some of his later ones e.g. Skipping Christmas and Bleachers but he can still turn out some good ones IMHO.

I enjoyed the legal cut and thrust in this novel but the journey to and through Brazil was brilliant too. Luckily I had forgotten how the story ended and it didn't disappoint."

I'm reserving this book for another bookcrosser who I'm meeting for the first time next month.
