Girls Talk - All Time Favourite

Thursday, October 28, 2010

Seriously, only one all-time favourite book?

This is a hard task. It is almost impossible for me to choose. Usually when I love a certain author, I'd read his/her range of books over and over again. But if I must choose, okay then.

Hmm....the best recollection I have of the most reads I've had of one book is - The Pelican Brief by John Grisham.

I don't know how many times I've read this story. I've lost count after the first five times. And I don't even own a copy of this book. The story is just so compelling and stays vivid in my mind. It probably also doesn't help that I've watched the movie a couple of times and so everything is made unforgettable, firmly imprinted in my thoughts.

The gist of the story, as borrowed from Grisham's official site:

"In suburban Georgetown a killer’s Reeboks whisper on the front floor of a posh home… In a seedy D.C. porno house a patron is swiftly garroted to death… The next day America learns that two of its Supreme Court justices have been assassinated. And in New Orleans, a young law student prepares a legal brief… To Darby Shaw it was no more than a legal shot in the dark, a brilliant guess. To the Washington establishment it was political dynamite. Suddenly Darby is witness to a murder — a murder intended for her. Going underground, she finds there is only one person she can trust — an ambitious reporter after a newsbreak hotter than Watergate — to help her piece together the deadly puzzle. Somewhere between the bayous of Louisiana and the White House’s inner sanctums, a violent cover-up is being engineered. For someone has read Darby’s brief. Someone who will stop at nothing to destroy the evidence of an unthinkable crime."

This is my book entry to Girls Talk this week.
