Great surprise. It saved the book.
Emotion for each character.
John Grisham is as predictable as a Walt Disney movie.
I very much liked the story, where one could "do the right thing and the money would follow." But I think the character of David Zinc could be developed further - he is a little bit single dimensioned. And the character of Nadine Karros, a leading defense attorney, was a disaster. No one would have ever believed that she is a competent attorney except to take John Grisham's word for it. The repeated mentioning of her legs was just insulting. I think any female reader would be offended by the poor writing of this character despite a good book overall.
Yes. The pace was perfect.
Maybe. I don't think this is a big screen movie, but I will definitely order the DVD.
Although serious, I couldn't help but laugh at some of the characters situations and comments
Grisham's legal novels have come to be standard fare on my reading menu, when they come around every year or so. I expect a well laid out story with impeccable use of language throughout. Not too exciting, not too complicated, and generally not too many surprises. This story fall right into step with many of his others. However, it is written well enough that it engages the reader and certainly was not a waste of time. I listened to this book while travelling for about 12 hours and it filled the time nicely. Nothing too memorable in the long term, but certainly an entertaining read/listen.
I enjoyed this book and especially the interplay between the young attorney who quit his $300,000 job and takes a job with a couple of cheezy lawyers. I enjoyed the legal and personal interplay between the main character and the rest of the characters. I found myself laughing at what the ambulance chasing lawyers did but had this bemused grin as our Harvard attorney figures out who and what they are and where he fits.
I strongly recommend this book and believe that you will find it relaxing, entertaining, and enjoyable.
When the Harvard attorney realizes he needs to ask questions durinig litagation and scores some major points by basically making the VP looking devious and misleading.
I have not heard him before.
When the toy company president accepted responsibility for lead painted toys that caused brain damage without litagation and then when this same president apologized to the family at his funeral. That is the way a business should behave.

Den liknar mycket han redan skirvit om lite olika former.
Uppläsningen var bra som vanligt men han är bättre i Child 44.
Bra historia men förutsägbar och Grisham har ju redan skivit flera liknande böcker. Boken är bra och det är alltid underhållade och spännade när Grisham skiver.
Yes. It is easy listening, well developed storyline, and you get to know the characters.
The re re rehabbed drinking law partner. He is someone we all know. John G. did not demonize him, but was real with the struggle the guy had and how it affected everyone.
Yes. He did not take away from the story at all. Very easy to listen to.
No. It was a pleasure to get back to it each time. I looked forward to listening to it.
This is not an edge of the seat page turner, but a really good read. Thanks again Mr.Grisham.
I have. Overall, I enjoyed his take on the far less glamorous side of law; Ambulance Chasing. True to his usual form, the main legal character ends up being a moral hero. Still, I found the book engaging and entertaining - I think John Grisham could write a book about sanding a desk and I would like it. Fun read.
One of the main story lines in the book is about a massive Tort case; it was interesting to read his take on one of the many ways these cases can be handled, so to speak.
I liked the scene where David joins the
This book did not really have many emotional aspects; it was mostly an entertaining read...
You have it!
I was disappointed because I usually really like Grisham. The story is predictable. I kept waiting for a twist in plot, or something interesting to happen, but it never did. This book was a complete waste of a credit, as well as a waste of time.
