Review of ‘The Tumor’

Posted on Updated on

Author John Grisham, who has penned several award-winning legal thrillers, says that The Tumor is his most important book. The story of Paul, a 35-year-old man diagnosed with a brain tumor, is first given as it happened, then Grisham provides a fictional account set in the future when ultrasound can be used to successfully treat and control such conditions.

While this lacks the suspense of the average Grisham novel, and is mainly a promotion for the ultrasound treatment, the author’s skill with words makes it a worthwhile read.  An interesting subject, but not Grisham at his best, so I give it four stars.
