Back with another new novel John Grisham seeks to expand his horizons with a story free of much legalese but with the slightest hint of some criminal activity A heist at one of Princeton's libraries puts a number of original F Scott Fitzgerald's manuscripts in the hands of some career criminals uick acting FBI agents are able to scoop up two of the five but the others are still in hiding along with the manuscripts When one is rumoured to have surfaced at a small book shop on Camino Island the FBI's Rare Asset Recovery Unit pegs Bruce Cable as being involved and plan keep an eye on his bookselling operation Meanwhile Mercer Mann is approached by a private security firm to help with the reacuisition of the manuscripts under the guise of writing her next novel Mercer has struggled with her craft and is not sure she wants to play sleuth particularly if it means returning to Camino Island where she spent many summers with her grandmother Taking a risk Mercer agrees to open some old wounds and pretends to be writing while surrounding herself with the local writing community Slowly Mercer begins building bridges with Bruce Cable in hopes of learning about the manuscripts However as she grows closer to an answer Mercer may have second thoughts of toppling all she has built in a short period of time With millions of dollars on the line Mercer must decide what is most important to her Grisham shows that he has talent to pen novels that keep lawyers and the law outside of the narrative Sure to appeal to a different group of readers the story offers some interesting insight into the craft of writing the next 'great novel' I have long been a fan of John Grisham and his novels having cut my teeth on his legal thrillers throughout the years This story differs greatly from those and serves a completely different purpose While the legal thrillers are usually uite sharp edged this book shows a much smoother edge to Grisham's writing The characters offer an interesting mix giving the reader a great sampling of both mannerisms and characteristics that complement one another at times and clash at moments to offer some dramatic flavour to the story One might say that the characters are a lot softer than Grisham usually presents but the genre might play into that alongside the intended audience The plot and setting are also a much softer transitioning from the rough and tumble heist at the beginning to the oceanfront setting of Florida where the breeze and sand denote a peaceful place for the book to develop One also has a feel of romance and emotional discovery in this book where the reader is subjected to Mercer's inner turmoil and portions of her self discovery as she grows closer to the man she is supposed to betray Its structure also left me a little baffled choosing 'chapters' in what are surely part divisions and then chopping up the chapters into enumerated pieces clearly of the usual chapter variety I will admit that the book was well crafted and kept the story moving forward but I feel it tapped too much into sentimentality and the development of the author's process than gritty legal battles and a dark exploration of the criminal element which better suits Grisham as an author and my enjoyment of his stories This book will surely create a stir both good and bad for the vast number of Grisham fans I am happy to have offered my five Canadian cents and will watch as things transpire Kudos Mr Grisham for another interesting novel While it was not my favourite your versatility shines through by penning this piece I am eager to see how it is received Likehate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at

Camino IslandWorking for an even mysterious company A generous offer of money convinces Mercer to go undercover and infiltrate Bruce Cable’s circle of literary friends ideally getting close enough to him to learn his secrets But eventually Mercer learns far too much and there’s trouble in paradise as only John Grisham can deliver i. Every time I read a book by John Grisham I am consistently reminded of what a great storyteller he is His style is compact direct and to the point and pulls you in immediately I wasn’t 10 pages into his new book “Camino Island” and I knew that I would be spending most of the day focused on reading it The good news is that it was worth itRather than focusing on lawyers it takes aim at the world of bookstores publishing and writers It begins with a skillful heist of five John F Fitzgerald manuscripts from a secure vault below Princeton’s Firestone Library The manuscripts end up in a secondary black market and a young female writer Mercer Mann is hired to go undercover an investigate a popular independent bookstore owner and prominent dealer in rare books that is thought to have or know who is in possession of the manuscripts Using a background that is second nature to Grisham works well and provides interesting tidbits and name dropping throughout the book As usual Mercer is in over her head and the reader is right there with her The plot develops fast and flows well His prose is easy to read and take in as the pages meld together in a character driven adventure that captures your attention Even though this book is one of his shorter ones just under 300 pages it is well worth the time Overall Grisham knows how to tell a story that readers enjoy I especially appreciated his respectful name dropping of Stephen King support for independent bookstores a nice small shot at The uestion to ask myself is whether I ever really read a bad Grisham book Although some are better than others the answer is no All of them have been good better or best If you’re honest you are probably nodding your head right now “Camino Island” is one of the better ones Just try it
