The Litigators is written very mechanically, with basically zero plot twists or surprises. The characters had elements of being interesting, and the book spent a lot of time developing their personalities but never plugged them in to an interesting story. As the story moved along I kept waiting for
Most disappointing was the lack of intrigue or suspense. The story is obvious and generic, the bones of which have been told a million times over (down-on-their-luck litigators stumble onto huge liability case against major corporation). Yet, even within this framework, Grisham could have added some turns or features to keep the reader on the edge of seat. The only reason I kept reading was because I kept thinking the twist was
The day he left the law practice
yes, he's great
yes the settlement of the lead case
I find fiction more enjoyable audibly in general. The actors/readers are usually quite good at the dialects and accents.
Even though a bit slimy, I thought Wally Fig was hilarious. David, of course, is the hero with real heart for others - especially the undeserving (Oscar & Wally!)
Absolutely. Not possible, though
I have enjoyed every book by John Grisham... obviously some better than others. This was fantastic. And I was glad for a happy ending for the hero. A fantastic listen. Like
Not 5 stars, but an easy 4 stars. The start of the story is great... bail from work and spend the day in a bar.
Grisham's dry humor brings this book to life. It's another book that is a must read!
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.
