"Keeps the reader hooked... From the creepy first chapters... to the vise-tightening midsection and on to the take-the money-and-run finale." (The Wall Street Journal)
"Irresistable...seizes the reader on the opening page and propels him through 400 more." (Newsweek)
I kept thinking, "Oh no, watch out for that guy you can't trust him"..."It's no good, Mitch, you're smarter than that...no, no!" I was with him all the way!
I loved Mitchs' creativity! No wonder he was 5th in his graduating class! I loved how he handled Them. And he was cool in every sense of the word.
That was the only part I didn't care for about the story. He tried to be so slick and he came off sounding "smarmey". His accents were all off. Sorry, couldn't do it in '3 words'.
When Abbey confronted the Fibbie on the bus and relayed to him so much info about the operation.....he was confounded that she knew so much and wasn't even aware of who she was. And then when she told him just how many files they had copied ...... Wow! He was amazed. He knew he wasn't dealing with just any lawyer.
Once I knew this Bendino Law Firm had thier hooks into Mitch, I couldn't put my mp3 down. I had watched the Firm on tv last year, so I had him in my mind.......mmmmm.
I have long wanted to listen to the audiobook of The Firm but Audible only had an abridged version. When I saw that they had added an unabridged version, read by my favorite narrator Scott Brick, nonetheless, I jumped on it. The book is very good but winds up deviated significantly from the book. The story is definitely entertaining, but I have to admit, this is one of those rare cases where I think I preferred the film. That being said, it is an excellent audiobook that was engrossing and kept me engaged. As such, I am happy to give it four stars.
This is a compelling thriller and well-read. I prefer later Grisham, in which the characters have more depth and complexity, and social issues are brought to life. The reading is competent and well-paced.
Succeeds as entertainment.
I couldn't put it down. The author's narrative allows you to experience what's happening at all time. Very detailed, but not boring. I highly recommend it
I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
So,so,so much better than the movie!!! I can't say enough about the way John Grisham writes his books easy to read,suspenseful and drama drama drama and u still don't know what's next. This book goes so far into the corrupt world and the place lawyers and mobsters have in it. Mitch and Abby only have one way out!!! And u need to read this book to see how they got out with or with out the FBI's help
The storyline was very interesting. At times I thought the story move kind of slow. There was some repetition which bored me. I wish the characters were developed a little more. But the intelligence of the main character and his way of negotiating was extremely interesting. I would definitely recommend this book.
