Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
Seriously, has Grisham's writing always been this tedious? During a 4 hour road trip yesterday, during which I had little to occupy my mind other than this audiobook, I found it only slightly less interesting to look at the cows, the grass, the trees, and the ass end of the truck in front of me. Sometimes I even had to rewind because I didn't know what I'd just listened to.
