THE APPEAL—John Grisham—Using a toxic waste issue in a small Mississippi town, Grisham focuses on the issue of election of judges rather than some form of appointment. His good guy are very good; his bad guys are very bad and there are few in-between. The appeal explores a range of interests which could benefit or be harmed by the election of one with a specific agenda, and the types of possible candidates who might become involved in the judicial election process. Throughout are stories of fictional but not unreasonable instances to substantiate the story. Reviews seem not really mixed, just pretty neutral. Good read but in many ways kind of unsatisfying. Better than many recent books, but not as good as his first efforts. Still no reason not to enjoy.
