The Testament By: John Grisham

This book started great, then slowed down to the point that I was going to give up. However I was already invested into it so I pushed through. It then got better. Sadly, as I have found with the last few Grisham books, it was a bit anticlimactic. This story is about a rich old guy that leaves a will that causes a ruckus between his kids. The fortune (11Billion) is left to someone that is unexpected by any of the ex-wives or degenerate kids.  As I most Grisham books you have multiple story lines taking place. I wanted to love the book but it was hard. And the ending was very disappointing.  As I was finishing the book, I was pinching the remaining pages as I do to see how much "runway" is left for a good ending.  I did not see there was enough runway in this book and when you get to the end, you will agree that it was in fact anticlimactic.

I really wish it would have ended differently. Dam-it Grisham, come on. Couldn't you have hooked up Nate and Rachel?  She saved him.  It could have been a great relationship where Nate and Rachel wed and since he was leaving law, he could have gone with her to the place that saved him by almost killing him.
