Disappointed. Not one of Grisham’s best. Rather predictable and boring.

Fabulous read. Grisham never disappoints.

John Grisham’s The Guardians is a book that follows “innocence” lawyer, Cullen Post, who tries to free innocent men from prison. This book started off promising and overall kept its stature. While it did have a few slow and boring parts,…

This was a good read. A true John Grisham novel. I couldn't put it down.

An incredibly fascinating story. Entirely, completely thorough but not too slow at all.

This is one of Grisham's didactic projects, telling us all about the workings of an Innocence Project. It details the pitfalls and triumphs of getting innocent prisoners out of jail. Grisham uses the first person point of view well to good…

A classic Grisham novel - well written, captivating and hard-to-put-down. Use of the first-person was at first a deterrent for me, but I warmed before the 5th chapter and was hooked - regardless - by the 2nd.

Another great book from one of my favorite authors. Very good story line, great character development and difficult to put down. Most enjoyable.

This is a very slow moving Grisham novel, flat characters, plodding storyline. His last few books have been very low quality and great disappointments. Go back to someof his first books which had depth, character development, action,…

An excellent picture of the Justice system as seen in the U.S. So many tragic outcomes for those who are not part of the controlling elite. Incidentally, we have just seen this from the President who was able to free his pal Stone. No…

I have always enjoyed reading John Grishams books which include his non lawyer stories. I found this book a quick & easy read with an interesting story line, character development--so much so I read it over two evenings. The Guardians is…

I always look forward to a John Grisham book, but unfortunately none of the new ones come anywhere near his early novels. Just couldn’t get interested in this, very disappointing.

My first read of John Grisham. Found it long and a little to much detail in parts. It was a good story line but also had to many charters for my liking. L Gibson March 9 2020

This book moved very slowly and was mostly boring and predictable. I did finish it, but had to take it in small chunks.

Generally find Grisham's novels much more interesting than this one. Rather boring and certainly not worth the "wait" time to read it!

Loved it, very emotional at the end. I want to donate to innocence groups now.

I loved this book. The guardians are a group of people who try to (And often succeed) open old cases and prove convicted people innocent. Quincy Miller is one such convict who has been charged with murder and is on death row. The book…

Although this novel is a little better than the last few ones it does not reach the thrilling level of Grisham's first books 25 years ago. Easy and enjoyable o read, but we know the end from he start!

Hard to give Mr Grisham anything less than 4 stars! It's a solid, captivating story told by a master. Is it as good as Pelican Brief and many others, no. But a very pleasant way to spend a snowy winter afternoon :-). It is also a good…

Finally, John Grisham has hopped off of his soap-box (Gray Mountain, The Rooster Bar) and returned to the style that made him famous. Although somewhat confusing at times, this novel held my interest for the most part. Some aspects were…
