The best part of the entire experience was the wonderful performance by Dennis Boutsikaris. If I could, I'd have that guy narrate my life. The story was not a thriller in the least, and at times seemed downright boring. I don't know if this is the norm for Grisham novels, but for my first foray into the Grisham universe, I was quite unimpressed. I was hoping for it to be "Firm" like (sadly I've only seen the movie) and less-stories about an old divorcee and drunken ambulance chaser.
This is not as wonderful as Boutsikaris' performance in "Game Change" but almost matches it. Perhaps with better material...
The Litigators would do quite poorly with a follow-up book.
Nothing exciting. Grisham's earlier work I liked much better. Maybe it's me, but not that great.
Fun story with great characters. I enjoy Grisham legal thrillers for the fast-paced action, dramatic courtroom maneuverings and interesting story lines. The Litigators delivers.
Formulaic, plodding and predictable. The term "phoning it in" comes to mind which, now that I found out that JG is producing his most recent books "in collaboration" with another writer, makes sense but still made for an decent audiobook.
Great believable tale
Finding the Nasty teeth
I always enjoy listening to a good story
just enjoyed all of it.
I loved the humor and the speed of the story.
I liked the main character and his side kicks.
Yes, and Dennis is one of the best.
I don't know....but interesting question
The only think Grisham didn't get correct were his facts around clinical trials. I understand it is a novel but John could have put more research into it.
Probably not. It was not one of my favorite Grisham novels.
It just seemed a bit 'simple' compared to some of his other stories - needed a bit more suspense, perhaps.
No, it took me about 3 days to finish it.
Even the most unlovable of them have their humanity and kinship to us all and none more than the three most unlikely partners (four counting the secretary) one is ever likely to encounter since the hey day of Dewey, Cheatum & Howe (Three Stooges, if you're wondering). Attorneys are not well loved anyway but these guys really take the cake... but they grow on you. It's funny, and very human and sometimes the good guys come out on top. Law and Order it ain't, but boy what fun this was. I could hardly wait till the end and LOVED the old one-two knock out score against big corporate bad-guys!!! Like the three-stooges approach to legal services, you remember, Able, Unable and Pitiful and we got 2 outta three!!! LOVED this and may actually make me a Grisham fan!
I did not read the print version.
Follow your dream and love what you do.
Thank you Mr. Grisham for another excellent book.
Looking for good thrillers
I recommend the book. It's a typical John Grisham story, fast paced, nice twists about the end of the book.
Dennis makes a great performance reading the book. However, an hour and a half before the book was over it sounded like different voices were reading the sentences. I must say it was annoying.
