About Grisham, I find his work interesting from the inception, but after reading a dozen of his book. I kind of noticed a template for his work. My best novel so far is Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. (Am a medical guy, so non medical people might find it boring)

yes quite true, grishams books follow a certain pattern. i think i have a crichton in my collection, but cant remember the name, will check for it and get back to u

Yeah, people's attitude about borrowing books and never returning it might be annoying. I have my way of sending them off my coast. If you need a book from me then you get Dan Brown: "Angels and Demon or Da Vinci Code" Once they see the volume, they drop it and go away.

Yes, the volume scares them off. What i noticed is that most of them do not have reading habit. They just like the way i display the book in my room and they think they might, pick up reading habit from borrowing and reading my books.

uceee: Did James Hardley Chase write the Nick Carter series too? I haven't been able to find another of it since around 2005.

The NC series are not popular in those days, the few of us who bought and read a few considered the books as unserious, unrealistic and too violent, we moved to chase and we got a better bargain. NC's lead actor never never do anything wrong, he is always the best in everything. He was fashioned in the moldova of Sean Connery of the James Bond 007. This is the little i could remember about the books. You may never find any more copies to read.

Then, thriller was a hit! The book industry was just evolving into a huge commercial one, so author wrote for market sales

I still dnt find Grisham boring, he is a Lawyer and most of his works are in line with his profession. I'm a law student, so i can relate well nd not get bored

I did not say his books are boring, i just kind of noticed that all his book follows a pattern, like a template. When reading his work, i can guess rightly what will happen in the next chapter (This was after i have Read almost a dozen of his book).

As a Law student, you'll always find his work interesting, (when i was reading his books last year, my phone dictionary is always at work...lol), Just the way i Find Dr. Michael Crichton's work interesting.
