The mostly white town of Clanton in Ford County, Mississippi, reacts with shock and horror at the inhuman crime.

For T I chose Grishams first novel, and his best IMO. It‘s a very powerful book & brings up a lot of questions that need answering still. In a southern town, a young black girl is raped, beaten & left for dead. When her attackers are put on trial, her father takes justice into his own hands & kills them in the courthouse. Put on trial himself, a white lawyer battles to save him & the south from boiling over into violence.

I‘m almost half way through this book and the storyline is now focused on the defence for Carl Lee Hailey, the man who killed his daughters abuser in cold blood. The main idea is the conflict between whether the circumstances justify Carl Lee‘s decision or if murder of any kind is inexcusable. The theme of this part of the book is morality, as the jury start to decide whether Carl Lee‘s actions are punishable.

marleed I read all 3 Jake Brigance books in summer ‘21. It really is interesting to see how John Grisham‘s writing of the Deep South changed over the course of 25 years. And by changed I mean the use of the N-word. Oh, and his newest book released this month includes Jake Bigance in a Novella. 8mo

I‘m about a third of the way through this book and so far, it‘s a good read. The first part describes the abuse of a young African American girl by two white men, and the investigation into the incident. Eventually the young girls father decides to kill the men that abused his daughter. The theme in this story is justice, it‘s shown through the use of the courtroom, and the fathers decision to take revenge on the men.

Lucas.Authier If you like books about law and the judicial system, you‘ll like this book 9mo
marleed Last year I read (and enjoyed) all three books in the Jake Brigance series essentially back to back. What I found fascinating in the near-20 year span of the writing is John Grisham‘s use of the N word. In book 1 the word is all over the place - and hard to read - by both good guys and bad. It‘s use in A Time for Mercy is very limited and only by the antagonist. 9mo
MissYaremcio Nicely done Lucas! This looks like a thought provoking novel! 6/6 9mo

#SavvySettings @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs

This month each prompt will be a book I've read that also has a movie. 😁

I was a big fan of early Grisham writing, and this book and movie are both favorites still. Of course, I think I was also 13 or 14 when I read this. I have not read any of his books published in recent years because everything started to feel repetitive. This book and The Client though are still great #Courtroom reads.

It took me most of the month to get through this bit by bit because the graphic descriptions of rape of a child and the language were hard for me to take in large doses. There‘s no denying though that this is a great story, one of Grisham‘s best. That said I‘m on the fence about reading the rest of this series.

Jeannineth I have read all of the Grisham legal thrillers and this is my favorite. If you do continue, I would recommend Pelican Brief. 1y
Prairiegirl_reading The second book wasn‘t that great. I felt that it was only related because of the name Jake Brigance but the main character could have been anyone. I wasn‘t impressed. I‘m a Grisham fan but I won‘t read the third one. 1y
marleed I‘m glad I read this even having seen the movie on multiple locations. The ubiquitous use of the n-word by both protagonists and antagonists was difficult for me. I‘m diving into book 2 of the series later this week. 1y

I‘m glad I read the book (but for the n-word) even though my memory of the movie is so strong. It‘s still my goal to find this as a thrifted book in the wild - the joy of book hunting. 1y

My John Grisham stack is significant and I‘ve been waiting to read books 2&3 in this series until I read book 1. Having seen the movie several times, I hadn‘t read the book. I finally went for a library copy because it‘s comical how unsuccessful I‘ve been at hunting down a thrifted copy of this book. I liked it, I‘m glad I read it, but boy the frequent use of the N-word, even by protagonists, was hard to read.

Cazxxx I love Grisham! 1y
marleed @Cazxxx Over the years I‘ve read several John Grisham novels, but it‘s been in the last 3 years that I‘ve decided to read his full catalog, and it‘s been fun! I moved to an area where thrifted books are abundant so I pick an author and go down a rabbit hole with their books. It‘s become a hobby separate from reading. I‘m now hunting full collections of series for 2 friends (Harry Potter and Junie B Jones).

I'm a John Grisham newbie and I've never seen the movie (😱) so for such a well-known book I actually went in blind. While I would have preferred that the n-word not be used *quite* so liberally, I can understand why this is a popular one! Although my other bone to pick might be the length, considering that the facts of the case are basically known and unrefuted from the beginning, and the only actual question is whether or not it was justified.

#JumpStart2021 #FamousAuthorsDebutNovel I chose this prompt because it illustrates the start that famous authors came from. Not all debuts live up to their later heights, but I found in this case, it‘s actually my favourite Grisham novel. Much better than the Mathew McConaughey movie, though I did enjoy that, the book is much much better. Of course!

Clwojick I don‘t think I‘ve read anything from this author, so I‘ll have to see if I can get my hands on this book! 2y
Lizpixie @Clwojick it‘s brilliant but very confronting. It‘s about a young African American girl who gets raped by racists and the aftermath when her father takes the law into his own hands. I cried through a lot of it😢 2y

I finally got a chance to stack all my legal fiction together. I haven‘t read one in a while but I plan on re reading some of these next month. I started reading legal thrillers in law school and became a Grisham fan. John Grisham‘s name is considered to be synonymous with modern legal fiction. Some of my favourites by him are A time to Kill, the Litigators and the Firm.

I believe this was one of the first John Grisham novels I ever read. I remember it being very readable, despite being set in the worlds of the legal system. Great tension, but not overwhelming. Great characters that you want to root for!

#HeyJune Back in the day I read a TON of legal thrillers and John Grisham was my go to #paperbackwriter 💙 I must have bought every book he wrote in the 80‘s and early 90‘s but I have no clue where they went🤷🏼‍♀️I won The Whistler from GoodReads last summer but it‘s still sitting on the TBR shelf 😕 His first book, A Time To Kill is still one of my favorites.

SledgeReader @AshleyHoss820 @Cathythoughts @CouronneDhiver @TrishB @Cinfhen I loved his books when he was fresh and never missed one.

I gave this book a So-So because many things in it made me feel uncomfortable. All the sexism and racisim made me want to stop reading and most of the characters had atleast one really annoying aspect in them (they made stupid decisions or said idiotic things or just were generally annoying). But the book was well written and easy to read. The story progressed easily and the plot was interesting. 📚

This is starting to get REALLY ANNOYING! This part when translated says:

"He wanted a beautiful wife who stayed at home, had children and didn't want to "wear the pants in the family". It was love at first sight." ?

Tough read for a feminist. ?

SandyW You are reading a period piece. You just have to keep telling yourself, things were different back then. 5y
Martta @SandyW That's true! Although racism combined with casual sexism is a bit strong combination. I've decided to read this through because it's an image of its time. I'm so happy I didn't start with this when I read my first Grisham. 5y
SandyW I know what you mean. I just finished "The Other Boleyn Girl." Mary was married off at 12, and they just keep giving eligible daughters to the king for their own social positioning. We may still have a long way to go, but even with all the inequities and craziness today, I'm glad I live in this century. 5y

There is a lot of sexism in this book. Some I think are unintentional. The men in families order the women to be quiet, not to take part in family's money issues, to stop asking questions and to follow orders and so on. This is so annoying because the book itself is really interesting! It's just that there are no not-sexist male characters around!!!! 😠

Even though John Grisham is entertaining to read it is a pity how rarely he has strong female characters in his books. I know he has some stories that have a female lead or strong female personality otherwise but it's still sad how often he writes the women as wifes, steady girlfriends, grieving mothers or just victims.

ReadingSusan So true. 5y
callielafleur That's why I loved The Client, an amazing female lead. 5y
Martta @callielafleur I haven't read it yet but it's in my TBR pile. I think The Pelican brief has a female lead as well but haven't read that one yet either. I think I've read now around 7 John Grisham books and most of them had really interesting male characters but only a few good female characters. Should really read one of those two next. 🤔 5y
callielafleur @Martta I will be totally honest and say that it has been a really long time since I've read these, and I've seen the movies more recently. From memory, The Client has a really good female lead, where the Pelican Brief has a good female assistant. It would be interesting to revisit them! 5y

Nute A Time to Kill is neither easy or fun. It broaches an act of violence during a deplorable time period. He has other books that are more palatable and might be more suitable for the type of read that you are desiring right now. I think that you will find this book unsettling. 5y
Martta @Nute Yep, this wasn't exactly what I was expecting. It has way more difficult themes than many of his other books. It is a difficult read in subject wise but I decided to read it through. The writing is still his usual style eventhough many of his plot and character choices makes me mad. 5y

Mehso-so

Blinded with anger & certain the law will not be on his side, Carl Lee takes justice into his own hands, killing the white men who raped his 10-yr-old black daughter. Young Jake Brigance strives to keep his client from the gas chamber during a criminal trial that pits white against black & draws out the scuzziest members of the rural South. A compelling & cringeworthy read, filled with enough misogyny to last me a lifetime. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

quote
wrenaymuhree

Then came Carla…She was a Dean's List scholar in liberal arts with no intention of ever doing more than teaching school for a few years. Her family had money, and her mother had never worked. This appealed to Jake – the family money and the absence of a career ambition. He wanted a wife who would stay home and stay beautiful and have babies and not try to wear the pants. It was love at first sight.

Well. 🙃
