Please be advised that there appears to be an error on page 177 of your new book The Associate. It is not the usual grammatical error you sometimes find in books where the wrong word or incorrect tense of a word may be used. In the paragraph starting with "Brother Manny issued the questions --- " at the top of the page you appear to have mis-identified the person with whom Brother Manny is having a conversation as Kyle ( Kyle felt as though he could chat for hours --- )when I believe it should, in fact, be Baxter Tate. The book is extremely interesting but this "error" kind of jumped out at me and I had to reread it ( this paragraph and the preceding few paragraphs )several times to make sure I was not reading it and interpreting it incorrectly. I would have thought that your proof readers might have picked up on this error. I thought you might want to know about this situation even though it is after publication and not much could be done about it, if anyone else even notices it.
Best regards and keep on writing such interesting books. They are very enjoyable and entertaining.

I loved his first books. Rainmaker was
brilliant, The Firm - great! Since Street Lawyer, they've gone downhill. Love him, but he needs to spend more time writing and get back into the character-building. Also, does he have script approval for the movies? I think they absolutely stink! They change SO MUCH detail, it's ridiculous. After the books, I can hardly watch the movies.

I just read The Appeal. Shame on you John Grisham for forgetting the most critcal lessons of story-telling. The readers will always be for the underdog, want satisfaction and justice and the bad guys to loose. This book could have been a great movie if only you had changed the ending. Ron Fisk was a God fearing man but he totally ignored the sign from God when his little boy was hurt. If he had written his opinion to uphold the verdict rendered in Mississippi for Baker vs Krane imagine how the reader would have felt? Justice would have been done and Barry Rinehart and Carl Trudeau would have leaped from tall buildings. Readers want satisfaction not a case history. Even having Carl Trudeau's disgustingly expensive boat blown out of the water by a fast moving cigerette filled with drugs and driven by two idiots high on drugs would have been some consolation. Think about it.

Just finished The Partner. Great book, but the ending was terrible. Did Eva steal the money? If so. why not steal it all? Did something happen to her? The ending of the book is like watching a fabulous fireworks show, only to end the show with hand sparklers!!
