PERSONAL OPINION

This book “ The Pelican Brief ” is about a judges life… for me it's very

interesting, the murders and this world of investigation are great.

The last three chapters have been the most exciting part of the book

for me, because they come to the conclusion of the story.

I recommend this book because you can understand most of the

things it would say to you, but there are a lot of characters and for

me It's a little difficult to understand; one of the reasons is because

we don't read the book frequently and so I can't remember all.

But I like it so much, and if you want to spend some time thinking in

this world… read it!!!!!

cause of deaths was the killer Khamel. On the other hand, Darby

started an investigation, and this lead her to the Pelican Brief.

At this moment, they pursued her for kill herself because she knews

so much.

Six months later, all the magazines of the country announced the

death of the President. Gay Grantham wrote an article about him and

his dark past: “Someone killed him when he was having a bath in the

bathroom of the White House.” The citizens don't believe it.

Some days later, Khamel appears hangman in the Central Park.

Then, all the accusations ended.

At the end of this, he confess: “The dead is a joke. I like to play with

it, with you lives! You don't really know what the Pelican Brief is…”
