Staff Review - Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer by John Grisham
Thursday Dec 06 2012
Posted in: Staff-Picks-and-Reviews

by Whodunit

Theodore Boone is an ambitious 13-year-old who has a peculiar passion for legal matters. He acquired this interest through his parents, who are both respected lawyers. I?d consider this a classic John Grisham novel that has been slightly tempered so it appeals to a younger crowd.

The 100 Year-old Man who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson is a clever, light-hearted novel. This is particularly surprising when you consider that it comes from Sweden, as the typical Swedish fare falls well within the darker spectrum of the genre.

This year I have chosen a series instead of a single title for my book of the year. I made this decision because the books have been published over a fairly compact period of time. The author is Ian Hamilton and his main character is Ava Lee, a Chinese-Canadian forensic accountant.

The British were the leading creators of early crime fiction, and, not surprisingly, many of their authors and settings involved not simply the United Kingdom, but the far-flung corners of the Empire, those parts, coloured red on maps and on which the sun never set. This essay will examine a few...

Terry Pratchett has become exceedingly prolific of late, which considering his condition ? he has a rare form of adult dementia -- is not surprising. I imagine that he wants to get as much of his ideas out and onto paper before he is no longer capable.
