I got this as an honor-book from the library to take on vacation. I realised a few chapters in that I had read it before. Hell if I could remember how it ended. Now I've finished it I realised why I didn't remember it before. 'Cos it had a lousy ending. Still, all power to Grisham for dragging me in once again. Rich author bastard.

I liked it.  I thought it was very emotionally realistic.  But it didn't stick with me over time, I guess, because I had to think..."sweethearts?  which one was that?"
