    Sycamore Row is the second book of the Jake Brigance series, the sequel to the bestselling debut novel of John Grisham, A Time to Kill.

    Summary Of The Book

    Sycamore Row picks up three years after the trial of Carl Lee Hailey, where A Time to Kill left off. Mr. Seth Hubbard instructs one of his employees to meet him by a Sycamore tree on a Sunday afternoon. Upon arriving at the location, the employee finds his boss dead, hanging by a noose from the branch of the Sycamore tree. Mr. Hubbard decided to end his life because his terminal lung cancer was too painful to cope with. He did, however, leave a very specific set of instructions for his funeral and subsequent burial.

    Meanwhile, Jake Brigance is caught up trying to get insurance for his burned down house. His new secretary informs him that a letter from Mr. Seth Hubbard has arrived for him. It is a revised holographic will that renounces his previous one, wherein all his money was to go to his children and grandchildren. In this revised will, Hubbard wishes to leave the bulk of his money to his housekeeper, Letitia Lang, a little to the church and some for his brother. He asserts that his bullheaded children will fight the contents of the will, and Jake is entrusted the responsibility to make sure that doesn’t happen.

    A convoluted trail follows thereafter, just as Mr. Hubbard had forewarned. The story proceeds in a fast-paced manner, delving into the details of a fiercely controversial trial. Another exemplary legal thriller by John Grisham, Sycamore Row is a page-turner.

    Not a bad read!

    Had a high expectations because of the prequel. Nothing like it, though.

    Sycamore Row starts promisingly, holds the readers' attention pretty decently, slacks in the middle, turns predictable towards the end. However, Grisham manages to churn out a pretty decent book by the end.

    Don't compare it with the master's best books, don't compare it with its prequel, and don't have too many expectations out of it. Else you will be disappointed.

    Boring

    The book is very boring. I will not recommend it until and unless you are a complete book worm.

    One of my best reads

    The start is good, the middle is dull, but the End - is exceptionally good. A superb end and I guess that's when realised why the book became a bit dull in the middle. It's all a built up. Once the courtroom trial starts, you will read till midnight (or probably even till morning) to finish it because u just don't want to get ur eyes off the book. Great built up, superb suspense, and immaculate characterisation. Read the book till the End. Don't leave it midway, you'll really miss something.

    Interesting but fairly predictable

    Decent story but a little predictable especially towards the end. Not a page turner but a very decent airport read.

    Sycamore Row by John Grisham (Review)

    The book consists of 550 pages.This book is all about racial America in the 1980's.It is filled with raw emotions.At a time it was even legal to brutalize the blacks.John Grisham hits the hidden emotions & hit them hard.This book demands justice for the blacks when you reach the climax.It is even sometimes awful to think humans can be that ruthless.In the book an old man named Seth Hubbard tries to bridge the gap of injustice.Nevertheless the book boasts of the same characters as in A Time To...

    John Grisham like always

    John Grisham's book like always is a good read and this book has been a good read like the others. Well bound, smells good (I kind of like the smell of new books) and a good size to hold in the hand and ready. The ordering process was very painless and the delivery was done before the expected date which was a good experience.

    A good read...

    About the book : Although a good story it does not match up to "A Time To Kill".

    Sycamore Row

    Typical Grisham style with enough courtroom drama to keep the book alive. Deeply engaging and as we near climax, it simply becomes impossible to put the book down. A must read for all legal thriller lovers!

    A journey into the past... Another exciting courtroom entertainer from John Grosham

    I haven't penned down too many reviews but, this book prompted me to write one.
    With 'Sycamore Row', John Grisham takes you back to Clanton City, Jake Brigance, Carl Lee Hailey and "A Time To Kill'. If you have enjoyed A Time To Kill, you will enjoy Sycamore Row as well. It is a fast moving book about a Holographic Will (and of course racism). The beginning is interesting and dramatic. As always, when the trial begins, John Grisham writes so elegantly that one actually hears and sees the cour...
