The Racketeer by John Grisham

Talk about beach reading!  Were we?   Well, last night at book club, Grisham failed as a beach reader–rather ho-hum fare from a usually  exciting author.

All agreed it “went right along” up to a point, but was an unbelievable, contrived plot and maybe better as a Hollywood movie.  Too bad, but all our choices can’t be winners.  Noise of Time for next month should be interesting—story of Russian composer, Dmitri Shostakovich, and his trials and tribulations under Stalin.  (One club member loves his fifth symphony and has a recording of it.)

Bye for now.
