A few weeks ago I started reading ‘Runaway Jury’ by John Grisham. I’ve seen many of his book-to-movies and really enjoyed them so I thought I’d give one of the books a go. Sadly, it wasn’t anywhere near as good as I thought it was going to be – I couldn’t even finish it! Yesterday morning I decided to give up just over halfway through the book. In the story they were only three weeks into the litigation with no sign of anything coming to an end any time soon, and I just wasn’t getting into the whole legal jargon enough to keep me hooked.
I’ve since moved on to the Harry Potter series – I’ve been told its a crime to not have read all the books! I only have limited time these days to read for recreation so I figured it was better spent reading something I’d actually enjoy.
Has anyone read ‘Runaway Jury’? Is it worth sticking it out? Did I just pick up a dud John Grisham the first time? Or am I better to stay buried in Hogwarts for a while?
