This story develops three types of lawyers. Each has his own motive. It was a good listen.
Ce n'est pas grave!
This book was only mildly entertaining, with somewhat implausable character developement. I really thought I would like it better than I did. It had a "formula" feeling.
This is a very good book but you keep asking yourself, haven't I read this because it reminds you of others of Grisham's novels. I love his novels as I am a paralegal, but this one just kept reminding me of a mixture of others he has written somehow. One in particular The King of Torts.
Yes becauses I enjoy his subject and it is difficult to find someone (who isnt' an attorney) who understands the law so well and make it enjoyable.
Don't really know if I have a favorite.
not really it kept bugging me that I felt like I had read it before.
John Grisham is a very good writer when he has a very strong subject. I have two favorite books he wrote and it would be nice to get more like those, the Client and The Firm. He hit those two on the head.
Yes, it is the accent and humour in the voice of the reader that makes the book.
I am a retired Child Psychologist who delights in her three grandchildren to whom I passed on the love of reading. They read vociferously.
It made me laugh. It made the laws that rule our country seem somewhat sordid.
Add more depth to the characters.
The accents and dialects
Grisham is a favorite and I will continue to read him.
I am a huge Grisham fan and I have read or listened to all of his books. While I liked this one, I found it to be very similar to his book
Grisham's early novels were carefully crafted and very entertaining. However, his more recent tries have not had the same quality in my opinion. Lame plot and predictable ending.
I enjoyed the pace and tone of this taped edition. The time flew and I enjoyed listening to all portions (beginning, middle and end).
In retrospect I would have rather re-listened to The Client or The Firm. But if you like the standard Grisham approach (young lawyer against all odds, with lots of "Inside Baseball" lawyering info) then this will work for you. Narrator was good.
This book kept me reading, non-stop. The story pits greed against social justice . Although it is fiction, I learned a lot about the murky world of pharmaceutical drug trials. I will want to read this book again at a later time.
