Recently Read by Brian Crow...

The Appeal by John Grisham.
This is the latest in Grisham's long, popular line of legal novels. The story, as usual, is based in the south, (Mississippi to be exact) and, typically, involves small-town citizens involved in legal action against a large conglomerate. This time, it's a huge chemical company polluting a small town, and a jury awards a large settlement to one of the residents.
Grisham brings in several memorable characters throughout the book, some likable and some not, and weaves them into the story beautifully. Overall, the book should appeal (no pun intended) to experienced Grisham readers who will already have an idea of what to suspect, and to new Grisham readers who will undoubtedly search the archives for his previous works.

Thanks to Dr. Crow (Sport Management) for contributing a "recently read"! Now how about the rest of you?
