I have read all of John Grisham’s books to date and I have liked all of them, though some less than others. Still, I think he’s a great writer and he always keeps my interest. Until the last one.
I recently read Camino Island. At first, I was enjoying it. The writer made me wonder where the story was going, who would get caught, who may get killed, and so on. As the story went on, I became somewhat bored, and by the time I hit the pages in the 200’s, I was definitely bored. I also didn’t like the characters much, but especially the main character. She was wishy washy in her role and, in my opinion, a little arrogant. Maybe that’s how Grisham wanted us to feel about her. I wasn’t impressed.
So, on Goodreads I rated this book a 3 and I hate doing that, especially for authors I typically enjoy. This one was a book I just couldn’t give more than a 3 rating. Sorry John, I’ll try your next book.
