A subject overload

Once I had become informed of what's happening in the Appalachian coalfields, the book became more like a documentary than a novel. I couldn't help wondering how this rape of America's scenic beauty could be allowed to continue and for a few chapters my outrage bubbled. But the urge to turn the page diminished and, although I finished the book, I was left with a flat feeling - dare I say a wee bit bored by it all?

Wouldn't waste time or money on this one. Boring! Really disappointing especially coming from Grisham! All over the place and left me feeling flat. Felt like it was a rushed book just to get one out there.. Is there a sequel...who knows, certainly feels like there should be, but if there is I definitely won't be taking the time or paying top dollar to read it.

I found this book to be only "fair". I wasn't gripped like previous books. In fact I was bored. I had to struggle to finish it.
