Theodore Boone: The Activist (Theodore Boone #4) by John Grisham

Sunday, 12 January 2014
"Theodore Boone is back, and he’s facing his most dangerous case yet. As Strattenburg sits divided over a hot political and environmental issue, Theo finds himself in the middle of the battle. When he uncovers corruption beneath the surface, Theo will confront bigger risks than ever to himself and those he loves. But even face-to-face with danger, Theodore Boone will do whatever it takes to stand up for what’s right."

Theodore Boone, the kid lawyer from Strattenburg is back in the 4th installment of the series. The town is facing a serious issue and Theo and his friends are counted in.

An ‘un-needed’ bypass is to be build in Strattenburg. It’ll cost two hundreds million dollars that the city doesn’t have and will ruin acres of land. This is just one out of a bunch reasons why the bypass is un-needed.

If you’ve read the last three books, you’ll find Theo’s character developments here. (Still) described as a talented yet down-to-earth kid lawyer, the author will show you another side of Theo in some chapters (that will make you love him more).

The characters seem so real you can feel what they’re feeling at the moment. It’s like you’ve know them for a long time. When you read this book you’ll ask yourself what’ll happened next and the answer for your question is always unexpected. The book is thrilling and heart-breakingly beautiful I even cried.

I read this book for 5 days, according to Goodreads, both at school and my house. I didn’t read this book for two days in a row because I can’t concentrate on reading those past two days but I can’t wait to get my hand on it. Finished it at school on Wednesday as my first read book in 2014 but unfortunately the ending didn’t gave me much feels. Not because it’s not good, I think, but because I’m rushing to finish this book. I’m planning to re-read a bit of the ending again though, so I might get the feel. If you haven’t read the last three books, you still can understand the story because it isn’t related with the previous books. 

I still remember the day when I went to Books&Beyond to buy this book and literally jump because I found it in one of the display and suddenly broke because it’s a hardcover book and I bring money only enough to buy the paperback one (around IDR60.000-IDR70.000) when it costs about IDR180.000 so I left the store with nothing. It was May 2013, a day or two after the book’s published. Everytime I went to the store I was hoping if I could bring this book home right at that moment but with my lack of money, I brought home this book on January 30th.
