The story is compelling: young attorney in a high-paying, high-stress, large law firm ducks out of his office one day, heads for the nearest bar, goes off on a a bender, and meets up, drinks up, and eventually joins up with a colorful lawyer from a struggling two-person practice.
When Oscar Finley has the heart attack during opening statements in their big lawsuit.
His characterizations are vivid and he makes the story come to life.
I haven't read Grisham in years, so I was surprised by both the Hiassen-esque humor as well as the clever plot line. For me The Litigators was a departure from Grisham's past fare, and, if my enjoyment is any indication, a wonderful sign of things to come. Who knew that Grisham could be so versatile and so much fun? I highly recommend this audio.
Yes, A great story. After veering away from his early works, Mr. Grisham goes back to his roots with this one. Awesome story line with the perfect ending.
Tell us about yourself!
Grisham makes his characters likeable people. The plot thickens and although a bit cliched with the cliches he himself created, it's a goo dstory.
Yes the plot kep us on edge because we come to like the characters and want them to win/ get away with it and survive happily.
Rachel, the office secretary and Wallik the main character because he was so opena nd relaxed abpout the mayhem going on around him. Boutsikaris' reading was good since it went by unnoticed.
No, it was the humour that I enjoyed.
I enjoyed Grishim's witty humor and ironic parallels with my own life as he describes a person who has had just enough and then takes a leap of faith into a wild adventure. Then he wakes up to find he's not in the dream he signed up but definately not in the nightmare he was in before. The main character works his way around roadblocks to eventually find his place in his profession. The other supporting characters bring humor and reality to his adventure and to me made it a very enjoyable book.
Insight into mass tort litigation
His presentation was excellent. I can't believe that reading the book would add to his reading.
I never read the print version...but I consider the audio edition fantastic, loved it.
I was constantly worrying about the characters in the book. Even when I wasn't listening, I thought about the book.
When the hero found the "Nasty Teeth" I knew everything was going to be OK.
Love John Grisham - I know I'll always enjoy his books!
This book was fun to listen to. The narrator's ability to portray all the characters gave you the ability to "see" each one. This story made you laugh, made you sad and gave you the ability to feel each character feelings also. By far one of, if not the best audio books I have purchased. This book is better listened to than read.
