2. The Brethren by John Grisham
Long before his name became synonymous with the modern legal thriller, he was working 60-70 hours a week at a small Southaven, Mississippi law practice, squeezing in time before going to the office and during courtroom recesses to work on his hobby—writing his first novel. John Grisham is an international phenomena in himself with such impressive titles as A Time to Kill, The Rainmaker and The Pelican Brief, everyone loves the gritty realism combined with the poignant humanism found in his Southern Gothic tradition. Grisham's writing offers a brilliant efficiency to storytelling which is uniquely found in the way he delivers his bestselling books. The Brethren is often cited as Grisham's funniest work, it is as always, well-written as well as undeniably funny. The book portrays uneasy parallels to our own society and forewarns of how easy it could be to slide into a complacency where we accept the worst from our government officials.
