The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'The Chamber':
Reviewer amazon.com wrote:
"The decision to bomb the office of the radical Jew lawyer was reached with relative ease." So begins Grisham's legal
leviathan The Chamber, a 676-page tome that scrutinizes the death penalty and all of its nuances--from racially
motivated murder to the cruel and unusual effects of a malfunctioning gas chamber.
Adam Hall is a 26-year-old attorney, fresh out of law school and working at the best firm in Chicago. He might have
been humming Timbuk 3's big hit, "The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades," if it wasn't for his psychotic Southern
uncle, Sam Cayhall. Cayhall, a card-carrying member of the KKK, is on death row for killing two men. Knowing his
uncle will surely die without his legal expertise, Hall comes to the rescue and puts his dazzling career at stake, while
digging up a barnyard of skeletons from his family's past. Grisham fans expecting the typical action-packed plot should
ready themselves for a slower pace, well-fleshed-out characters, and heavy doses of sentimentalism.
