The Runaway Jury by John Grisham

Hey Guys! πŸ™‚

I am back again with a book opinion. I promise other posts too, soon. πŸ™‚ By the way, I recently came across a beautiful blog for book reviews and I was amazed how much people love reading. Indeed, reading is a complete pleasure in itself. πŸ™‚

Coming back to this book, it is the 7th book that I read as part of theΒ Brunch Book ChallengeΒ and as I said, I’ll be logging my opinion about every book that I read as part of this challenge. In case you want to participate in this challenge too, read up about itΒ here.


This is the kind of book for which I want to force everyone into reading it. Now, the strange thing is that this is not the kinds (at least for me) which you will remember for a lifetime or which will surely feature in your favorites list. Still, I want you to read this. Well, basically, this is not something that will touch your heart for a lifetime but when you are reading it, you will enjoy and savor it to the core. It is a very intriguing and page-turner kind of fiction and this being my first John Grisham, I am definitely looking forward to more. He mostly writes novels about the law and legal cases. I don’t knowΒ about you, maybe you read a lot of suspense/thriller literature, but as for myself, Β I couldn’t get the ‘why’ part of the ending till the time it actually was explained. So, I am happy that this book kept me hooked till the end.


Also, what I loved was that this book gave a social message, an important one at that, just through means of a story. In case you care, *spoiler alert*,Β the legal case that John weaves in the book is against tobacco companies who make humans more & more addictive to cigarettes. Interesting topic, isn’t it?

In my opinion, it is a good read and you should definitely give this a try.

Take care & keep smiling πŸ™‚

  1. Hey hey hey πŸ˜€
    You changed the header na?
    Awesome it is πŸ˜€

    I have a few John Grisham books lying somewhere..haven’t read them yet though πŸ˜€
    Will find this one somewhere soon πŸ™‚

    • Hey Bhakti πŸ˜€ Thanks about the header. I actually changed the theme, it is kind of similar to the previous one, but some small but very important and much-needed changes happened because I started using this one πŸ˜€

      I got this book in book fair for 50 bucks :D, and yes, do read it soon.

      PS: I’ll do the kajal post asap. πŸ™‚

      • Yes The previous theme was 2011 i think? πŸ˜€

        πŸ˜€ There was a book fair here 10 books for 280 ( 100bucks for 1kilo πŸ˜› ) Haven’t read even a single one yet πŸ˜›

        You can take your own time…:)

  2. I have never read any Grisham books before or heard of the Brunch challenge but I always secretly peek at them while I’m at the library. Which would you describe as the best Grisham book or is this the only one you’ve read? Would you recommend this one?

  3. I love reading Grisham too. I have read ‘A Time to Kill’ and ‘The King of Torts’. I used to read Paulo Coelho mainly but when I read Grisham for the first time, I would use your words here ‘I felt I was hooked’. Haven’t explored any more books from him after that.

  4. Ok…added it to the queue of to-read…of some 50 odd books! And yes, I like the changeover you have made to your blogpage…looks much more attractive!

    • I earlier read it as re-read. I was surprised that you make list for re-reading as well. πŸ˜› Btw, do you actually do that? Making list for re-reading?

      • Hmmm…interesting question…I don’t think I ever like making a list for reading…I take whatever i feel like….I have presently some 30+ books which are waiting to be read…but, I don’t think I have thought of any particular sequence in which to read them…and yes, I am a BIG time hoarder of books! πŸ˜€ How about you?

        • I love buying more and more books, and I love making reading lists too (the fact that I love making lists for anything also helps, I guess). The only thing that is bugging me these days is that I have become a very slow reader compared to my childhood. Like, really slow.

          • Oh! that is true for everyone…last week a friend gave me GB Shaw’s Pygmalion….It took me 3 sittings to finish a play, which should ideally take one! And I am a pretty fast reader! So, don’t be too hard on yourself! πŸ™‚

            • what i mean is that i take a LOT of days to even finish 200-300 pages books (And that’s the avg length of books that i read), while as a child i could finish books of that length in one go or two. 😦
