Jedna z niewielu książek, która spodobała mi się mimo, że wcześniej obejrzałam film. Czyta się przyjemnie i lekko. Ciekawa akcja i trzyma w napięciu do końca, zwłaszcza jeżeli nie widziało się wcześniej filmu.
I'm sorry, but I just couldn't finish this. It was just, I can't even explain how bad it was. The writing was IMO pretty bad (please don't kill me Grisham fans). I could not for the life of me get into it.
