This book is a one of Penguin Readers Level four books and written using 1,700 words. Also this book is a retold version of John Grisham's The Street Lawyer. After finishing the book I didn't feel satisfaction. I felt not enough feeling because the story isn't complicated. It 's because this book has only 16,500 words and original book has 97,759 words.
It is difficult to choose which book I must read between a long original story and a short retold story. If I read 100,000 words it takes more than 20 hours. And I need three or four hours to finish reading the retold version. But I recommend reading original version for this sort of novels if you can. I think the taste of a original writing is important for enjoying the story. (This topic has 236 words.) Do you like this topic? Then click
