The Broker

I’m yet to read a John Grisham book that I don’t like, and The Broker was no exception. The book tells the story of a high-profile lawyer who quickly falls from his position of power, after accepting a jail term as a way of protecting him from very powerful enemies. 6 years in to his 20 year sentence however, he is unexpectedly pardoned, and sent to Italy by the CIA under what he presumes is a witness protection type program. Of course, there’s a much more sinister plot behind his release… but I’ll let you read the book and find it out for yourself.

Fans of previous Grisham books won’t be disappointed with this one. His style of writing makes his books uber-addictive, and if you’re like me then you’ll have trouble turning the light off and going to sleep. It’s just easy, and enjoyable reading. Grisham’s descriptions of Italy – the people, fashion, culture and most importantly food – make it sound like such a beautiful place to live! To think, that’s where 2 of my favourite foods were invented – pizza and pasta. Yummo! Now, if only I could speak Italian…

Anyway – call me an easy reviewer, but I didn’t find any fault with this book. Kristy and Craig both thought it ended a little quickly, and a little too conveniently, but I found that it wrapped up just nicely. I’d recommend this book to anyone. gerrod.com rating: 9/10.
