"If this is the first John Grisham book you have ever read, please do not judge him off of this. He is brillant in all of his books pertaining to law. This book is written well....don't get me wrong, but the story is just too boring. I couldn't finish it.
I do recommend John's other books.......this one must have been an experiment for him."
"I was looking for something dark; I got it. 2/3rds of the book takes place underground. Maybe Hell is supposed to bore you to death and that is the authors point. In which case, it's Genius! The description on the back of the book sounds good. It describes the 1st 3 chapters, which are excellent! Too bad the rest of the book is all downhill...maybe that is why it is called "The Descent"."
