Book Review: “Ordinary Grace” by William Kent Krueger

Ordinary GraceOrdinary Grace by William Kent Krueger

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The book started off a bit slow for me because it isn’t a shoot-em-up body slamming adventure. In fact, it is an extremely well thought out murder mystery based on a theme many of use who are older can relate to, namely the tendency of humans to prejudge others on some very sketchy information and to base our accusations of even complex cases like murder on whether we like or dislike the race, profession, work ethics or social class for the person whom we suspect.

I loved the period of time for the setting in the 1960’s. Of course, you would say, you were in late adolescence, early adult hood during that time and a whole lot of the description rings some concrete bells about that era. It is also a good depiction of small town society at that time and certainly would fit with a lot of 50-60’s era towns in Montana and the undercurrents that guided or controlled people’s lives.

Read it! Stick with it even if you aren’t into the religious parts, because the book has a lot to say to people everywhere about the human condition.
