Hi. Welcome to the blog. I'm writing this for school assignments, and my first one involves the book I'm reading right now.

So, at the moment I am reading The Innocent Man by John Grisham. I'm not very far into it, but so far I'm liking it. I also read In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, and I find myself comparing both the crimes described and the presentation of each by the authors. Capote is much more in depth about the facts of what happened, whereas Grisham's opinion is much more obvious in his writing. Both of the books are about gruesome murders. Innocent Man is only the murder of one person... so far. I like how the author gives so much background on Ron Williamson. However, I do suspect that he is not the murderer; he just doesn't seemt to fit. Ron may be a burned out drunk, but he doesn't come across violent or crazy; murder and rape just don't seem like something he'd do. So I'm hoping he didn't do it. It would be to tragic for him to lose his dream of playing Major League baseball and then go to jail for murder. Especially if he didn't commit the murder.
