It was a feel good book, and I love the action of the story.
Dennis Boutsikaris in my opinion brought the book alive, he kept my attention. He was able to express excitement, was able to actually paint a picture of the characters and through out the novel could be very animated or serious at any given time. He made the novel. With his impressions of the characters, I found myself laughing out loud, sitting forward in my seat during suspenseful periods and wanting to finish off the novel no matter what. Great narrator. Thank you
The novel made me laugh, made me happy, sad all of the ups and downs of a great novel.
I have never listened to a audio book before, this was a first. I listened on my Samsung Galaxy S3, and Dennis Boutsikaris helped to insure that I will continue to listen too more audio books. I've already told friends about it, and about the narrator.
We see lawyers like these on TV daily, decrying the evils of certain drugs or pharmaceutical companies. I loved reading (listening) to just how thier info is gathered and cases put together.
My most memorable moment was the same as for Zink and the rest of the team.....all the information was wrong! It was not dangerous and they were in deep trouble.
None in particular.....Zink facing up to his father-in-law, diving into the elevator, pulling the F&F law firm into shape, the secretary at the firm...priceless.
Not cry at all....at times I thought "yeah, go get 'em." Then, oops.
A very good book......get it. Hey, it's Grisham for gosh sakes!
Tell us about yourself! Female, Realtor
Close to the top.
When the main attorney found the lead based toy for sale at a truck stop.
All of it.
Nothing extreme. Light hearted and funny at times. Not Grisham usual.
Great ending; left you happy and content.
Not his best but his usual character types, values and tying up loose ends were all there so I enjoyed it for the most part. Not as gripping as his best stuff - Time to Kill, Street Lawyer - but if you`re a Grisham fan you will have a good time. I liked the hero`s pursuit of justice to the end and looking out for everyone to include the AC - the firm dog. I didn`t like the long drawn out tort trial that wasn`t the main part of the book although probably necessary to lay out the way forward for the hero`s future success. Also tired of stereotypes of the knock out female lawyer, cute wife, etc. They are always tall and slim while the anti-heroines are dumb and busty.
Sure if they are Grisham fans and want something entertaining. Grisham is entertaining and keeps your attention.
It would make a good movie - all his would although some of the ones made into movies sucked. Time to Kill would have been a lot better if they stuck to the original. Pelican Brief was okay....The Firm was good. Street Lawyer would be great if they made it. Maybe his books are better off as TV dramas.
Maybe Grisham should come up with a female heroine - and she doesn`t have to be Harvard grad and beautiful. His male heroes do tend to be Harvard grad and idealistic. Something a little more realistic would be interesting. But I do like his small touches of looking out for the little guy, doing the right thing by everyone, and wrapping up loose ends where everyone comes out all right.
Yes, Grisham writes another stunner!
Oh, yes......would have really been great to do that
Worth the time!!
Yes, I know that we are reviewing the books at Audible, and this one is very good within the genre, but often there is little review of the narrator beyond one sentence. I will get to the book in a minute, but a little more about Dennis Boutsikaris's performance first. Boutsikaris has a quality to his voice that really kept my interest. His range and intonation are excellent. What I look for are the ability for the performer to keep his voice in character and to make voices of the opposite sex sound believable. Boutsikaris does both very well (I remember only once mistake in the entire text). Additionally, he gives the book exactly the right amount of excitement for the genre.
If you are looking for an exciting mystery, this book is not it. The story revolves around three very imperfect lawyers and the trials and tribulations of their practice. The book contains two product liability litigations/class actions, and quite a bit of it rings true, a simplified account of what can happen in these cases.
The Litigators is very light reading, with several of the characters being somewhat funny exaggerations of what are clients and fellow lawyers. It goes fast and held my attention. At times, it had me laughing out loud (remembering my own experiences in similar situations).
Highly recommended as a light, yet detailed, novel about the law. Not recommended for those looking for a legal mystery with a lot of action.
No. I enjoy reading a book, but the reader of The Litigators was excellent, and I thoroughly enjoyed.
Yes. The plot kept me guessing until the end.
Due to being on the road hours most days, I'm an avid Audible fan! I live vicariously through the stories as the miles pass.
Enough already! We got the point -- over and over and over.
Although we have really enjoyed other JG novels, we don't recommend this one. Two sad characters who have no redeeming qualities. A storyline that emphasizes this over and over and over until the very end when the third character changes things and the first two fade into oblivion. Unimaginative. Boring.
well told story of the ins and outs of lawyers. I did not know lawyers hated each other and attacked each other like this. It is nice to hear the way some lawyers work, and how some are just parasites!
The quality of sound was not very good and made it harder to enjoy. Also I did not like that much the narrator's voice but that's my personal preference.
Fast action and surprising turn of the main character's life.
I will not comment here since I didn't like the voice ...
Absolutely, many times!
