    A sporadic and eclectic mix of dark and miserable storytelling, made all the better for me as it was narrated by Mr Grisham himself A shadow was cast over every thought This town of Clanton seems just horrible A mix of disparate and dark characters with storylines combined My favourite without a doubt was the last story of the lovely man suffering from HIV, and the selfless lady who cared for him It was a short story collection where there was n

    This book was so bad I couldn t finish it I normally have enjoyed every other Grisham book and can depend on them for good light entertainment and occasionally a very well done, enlightening story Ford County must have been written because Grisham had a commitmment with his publisher to churn something out The book is a series of seven short stories abouth life in Ford County, Mississippi the scene of an early Grisham novel I went through the first two storie
