6. A Painted House: A Novel
This novel depicted the style, way of expressing and writing abilities of the author and in this book he has delivered a quieter and more contemplative story of the boy on the poor farm. Although it is not a great thriller but it is a great story that could not have sounded more real.in fact the ending of the book did not really seem like the end, it just kind of stopped due to some ideas in the story so well developed characters and just go for read.
7. Calico Joe
A surprising and moving novel of fathers and sons, forgiveness, and redemption, set in the world of Major League Baseball. An enjoyable heartwarming and exciting story of a baseball and this book is hard to put down when someone is reading. The story is easy to understand and quick to read but the characters development is weak and the ending is unsatisfactory. Younger can take fantasy of this book.
8. The Partner
The book is interesting, has a twist, unexpected and well throughout the story. It is an excellent novel with a lot of fun to read. The writer tells about the partner in the law which is very suspenseful and unbelievable and there are too many coincidences to be realistic. Besides many of complaints about the ending of the book but you will enjoy the nonlinear story, telling style enough to trust the author with the end. All readers are to make up their own mind about Lanigan’s fate.
9. The Street Lawyer
This book is quite boring and you will find the book very dry to read. The story lines are slow and the characters are not as well-developed as some of his other books. The lessons he was trying to get out in the story are good, but he just stalled and made the book way longer than it should have been. The concept is good, but irregular points are there in it, it just does not grab one’s attention the way most of the author’s novel do. The irregular plot of the novel is not attractive, due to which readers have not found interest in this book yet.
10. The Brethren
Grisham has produced some books really liked by the readers and some are not good. One of them is The Brethren book, it is old sort of novel and it is the story of how some crooked judges are able to run a scam from inside a jail and how a completely evil general tries to bug an election and start a war. This book has an implausible plot, poor character development, and a lame ending. It disappoints the reader after reading this book rather than excitement. Therefore, it is not a highly recommended book for the readers.
