The Innocent Man

This is a true story about an innocent guy who was charged of death penalty, spent years in prison and how finally he was rescued and free of all charges. John Grisham's first non fiction book. A great subject to work but unfortunately Grisham failed to tell the story in his typical compelling story.

Reading this book seems like having a history book with endless dates and events. The prologue is quite long. The detail is so boring. This is far from Grisham's best work. A boring read. I only read half of the book, checked the pictures in the book and skipped to the end. What happens to Grisham? His works are getting more and more dissapointing. I miss his engaging old works.
