A Painted House by John Grisham Book Log 1

I think I got too tired of Sense and Sensibility. It’s just a thin book but it is taking me weeks to finish it. That says a lot about my interest on the story. So here I am reading John Grisham‘s A Painted House.

The last John Grisham book I read was The Chambers and it was quite depressing. Also, I have read The Firm-– very very thrilling– and I am pretty sure I have read another Grisham but I forgot about the title. Well, legal drama is quite a new interest for me which started when I got so obsessed with Drop Dead Diva. Now I am watching Suits. So when I visited the local bookstore, I took A Painted House because I think it’s about time for me to take a rest from classic and give myself a dose of legal thriller. (Picked up this one together with Alice Walker’s The Color Purple.

And here I am , realizing the fact that APH is not a legal drama at all! However, reading the first few chapters, I have to give it to John Grisham for his impeccable storytelling technique. It’s like hearing from Luke Chandler (the protagonist) himself. I am liking the sense of humor of the protagonist mainly because he reminds me of Luke from Modern Family. Give me a week, I’m done with this book!

Trust me.

PS: Isn’t it obvious that I watch a lot of series?
