A Good Long Ride

4 stars

I’ve read every one of John Grisham’s novels, many of them more than once. He is easily one of my favorite authors. But his previous book, Sparring Partners, was not good at all, and I was afraid it might herald a permanent decline. I'm glad to say I was wrong, because The Boys from Biloxi is a strong rebound.

This new novel is written in an unusual style for Grisham, covering multiple character arcs over a long span of time. But it works — so well, in fact, that I often felt I was reading a non-fiction account of fascinating historical events. Definitely recommended.

Review of 'The Boys from Biloxi' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

So predictable that you can see things coming 300 pages away, but that doesn't matter. The journey there is thoroughly enjoyable. Like floating on an inner tube down a lazy river on a sunny summer day. Grisham's storytelling at its best since The Client. Which, wow, was 29 years ago.
