The Firm | [John Grisham]

The Firm

At the top of his class at Harvard Law, he had his choice of the best in America. But he made a deadly mistake. When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought he and his beautiful wife, Abby, were on their way. Mitch should have remembered what his brother Ray -- doing 15 years in a Tennessee jail -- already knew. "You never get nothing for nothing."

Publisher's Summary

At the top of his class at Harvard Law, he had his choice of the best in America. But he made a deadly mistake. When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought he and his beautiful wife, Abby, were on their way. The firm leased him a BMW, paid off his school loans, arranged a mortgage, and hired him a decorator. Mitch McDeere should have remembered what his brother Ray - doing 15 years in a Tennessee jail - already knew. "You never get nothing for nothing."

Now the FBI has the lowdown on Mitch's firm and needs his help. Mitch is caught between a rock and a hard place, with no choice - if he wants to live.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Grisham page-turner!"
    What did you love best about The Firm?

    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!


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

    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'.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Very different from the movie"

    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.

    "Excellent Book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Firm to be better than the print version?

    Yes, it was easier to differentiate the characters.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, it kept my attention the whole time. The book was better than the movie.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but he was very good


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Full of suspense.

    "predictably gets suspenseful"

    Just when it got predictable, it got suspenseful. My wife and I listened together everytime we got in car.

    "FANTASTIC"
    Where does The Firm rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    'The Firm' is right up there with 'The Stranger Beside Me,' which I've listened to no fewer than 10 times. I have listened to this book 3 times since I've purchased it and I uncover more with each listen.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like suspenseful books with interesting characters this book is for you.

    "Riveting!"

    I loved the movie so I was pretty sure the audio book would be good too. Since I gad not read the book, I was unprepared for how much better it was than the movie. I plan to listen to this frequently till I have every nuance under my belt. This was pure bliss!

    "Best one yet"

    I'm fairly new to audible and have listened to a few books before this one. And by far, this one has been the best one I've listened to and will be listening to all Grisham's books. Only downside is after listening I watched the movie with Tom Cruise. Used to like the movie but not anymore. Like always book was far better.

    "Not Grisham's Best"

    This book was pretty far out on the plot limb for a Grisham novel. I read the original way back when books were on paper. I'm still a fan of Grisham, I just like some of his other work better.
