7 out of 10

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.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

This book was given to goldenwattle when we met for the first time today. She will probably re-release it soon without reading it. It's one of my very favourite Grisham novels so I hope it travels on to find someone else who enjoys it as much as I did.

Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

Journal Entry 8 by winggoldenwattlewing at St Stephen's outside Chapelfield Mall in Norwich, Norfolk United Kingdom on Thursday, May 18, 2017

This book has not been rated.

Released 3 mos ago (5/18/2017 UTC) at St Stephen's outside Chapelfield Mall in Norwich, Norfolk United Kingdom

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Released outside St Stephen's Church, Norwich, in the Cemetery that backs onto the Mall. (Initially, I left it outside Norwich Castle, but I returned about an hour later and the book was still there, so I decided to place it here instead. BUT, weirdly, someone had stolen its cover. The hardback book is fine, but now it has lost its outer cover and been left naked in public. Really, really strange, because why would someone want its cover only?)

If you take this book the previous readers would really appreciate if you could please log your find. That way we can all follow the book's journey. Bookcrossing is spam free and your details are private, or you can log the find anonymously. Thank you and enjoy the read.

Oh dear, "my" book is naked! It's a good job I always label my hardbacks on the dust cover as well as on the hard cover. I hope some kind booklover picked it up later, before it rained, so it can be read and enjoyed again.

Hello! I found this book in the garden of the methodist church outside chapel field in Norwich! I am an art foundation student and within my current project I have been looking at how you can pass hope through illustrations, researching book movements such as thebookfaries and booksontheunderground so it was VERY exciting to find this book, I left a piece of artwork in its place a couple of weeks later as a thank you (see www.instagram.com/hopefulline/ which is my anonymous instagram account following the art work that I am currently hiding around norwich for people to find). I am sorry it has taken me so long to post this blog entry, I am looking forward to reading this book in the sun once I have handed in my project next week, and then will leave it in another place for someone else to find! thank you daffodil-2 xx
