An involving edition to the TB series This is another welcome addition to John Grisham's "Theodore Boone" series, This series of books is essentially written for a younger readership than that which reads Grisham's primary novels. However, John Grisham is such a master of novel-writing that his TB series can be read with pleasure by an older audience - even if just for a bit of lighter reading and a break between the previous and the next novel to come off the Grisham production line. The title of this book, "The Accomplice", follows the general pattern of titles for this series (e.g. "The Abduction", "The Fugitive"), titles which give a slight hint as to what adventure Theodore Boone is about to undertake. In this novel, the "crime-obsessed kid" decides to become the court advocate for a friend who has been inadvertently caught-up in criminal activity. Wherewith the title of the book, the friend was regarded as an accomplice in the crime and was charged according, Enter Theodore Boone. Though desiring to become "the best courtroom lawyer in his state", it is just that "at the age of thirteen, Theo is years away from being a qualified lawyer and his friend, Woody, needs a lawyer right now." From this basis Grisham develops the narrative of the story to involve well-known characters, and otherwise, from the previous novels in the series. And, of course, the narrative develops to a fulfilling conclusion which, again, encourages the reader to consider that TB will, one day, realise his dream. This is story-telling that involves the reader; the book is attractively covered; good value for money; and, of course, another edition to line-up on the bookshelf in what has become a most impressive literary output.
Excellent Excellent as always. Theo alas will always remain 13. I and I'm sure others would like to see an older Theo, perhaps even one in law school?
Enjoyable Having read some of his adult books, for fun thought I'd give this a go. Enjoyable story for younger readers.
Very good Unusual one. All about Woody and his brother Tony. Mixing up with Garth. Just shows what can happen. Luckily they have got Theo as a good friend.
The Accomplice A darn good read for young and old, alike. This story moves along at a good pace and I didn't want to stop until I had reached the end. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Brilliant Another top book in the series , just wish we had them more often , find them easy to read and can pick up and put down my kindle and take off from where i left.
Little Lawyers growing Yet another in Grishams series, waited a while for the next one to appear. Great read, and good flow to it. Arrived very quickly, packaged well and no damage.
Cutely believable John Grisham always makes me impatient to turn the page and as long as this continues I will read every book he writes.
Latest Theo Boone novel Another good story from John Grisham, highlighting issues with the current law system in the U.S., the divide between those with money and those without, whilst keeping us engrossed with a well thought out story line. A really good read.
As usual a great book from John Grisham As usual a great book from John Grisham
