Court is in session!!!!!

Here we go, third quarter. Time for me to read a book... yay. I have selected a book by the name of Theodore Boone: Kid Lawyer, by John Grisham.

Quick synopsis: Theodore Boone is like obsessed with the law. He spends heavy amounts of time at the courthouse viewing cases and dreaming of his future as a star lawyer. His high enthusiasm quickly gets him deeply involved in a local murder case....
Essentially this is an awesome mystery book.

So I have read roughly 50% of the book so far, and this is probably the 1st time I am actually enthusiastic about reading this book. Murder trials and mysteries tickle my interests and Grisham did a good job of captivating my attention. This book is so easy to read I literally just fly through the pages. I find no internal burden or struggle when I open the book. It's been a long time since I read a book i didn't have to force myself to pick up, or slit my wrists after I had put it down, and its relieving I found one that I actually enjoy for a change.
This book is amazingly entertaining. Who doesn't love the tension and mystery of murder trials? This book flows easily and keeps me on my toes, happy, and from breaking out the literary cannon....  I just really like fiction novels like this and I can easily see myself returning to Grisham whenever I'm finished with this book. The one thing I like most is how a young 13 year old has the character and genius to be like a prodigy lawyer. I enjoy debates and arguments because they're a warfare of wits, and seeing a young kid who is good at being a lawyer is impressive. I wish I had the audacity and cleverness to out wit anyone...

Well, I need to go read this book more, so now I leave you with a question: What's your favorite mystery???
