Publisher's Summary

Oscar Finley: street cop turned street lawyer. Wally Figg: expert hustler and ambulance-chaser. David Zinc: Harvard Law School graduate. Together, this unlikely trio make up Finley & Figg: specialists in injury claims, quickie divorces and DUIs. None of them has ever faced a jury in federal court. But they are about to take on one of the biggest pharmaceutical companies in the States.

David gave up his lucrative career at Chicago's leading law firm for this: the chance to help the little guy stand up to the big corporations. But if Finley & Figg have right on their side, why do his new partners feel the need to carry guns in their briefcases? David thought he was used to cut-throat law from his days at Rogan Rothberg, but this is something else. He knows he was right to get out. He just may live to regret his new choice of firm....

    Story
    "Worth it in the end"

    Grisham usually develops his story line and characters very thoroughly and grips the reader in a problem -- usually a David and Goliath -- that needs to be resolved.

    The Litigators was less compelling and engaging with regard to both these aspects. However, it was definitely worth persevering with because the resolution was, as usual, satisfying and clever. The reader, Dennis Boutsikaris, although professional, had a drawl and flat tone that contributed to a book that I felt largely lacked Grisham's usual vibrancy and energy.

    Story
    "A slow starter gained pace finished in a hurry"

    I've been disappointed in John Grisham's later novels but managed to stay with this one to the end. He goes into great detail in bulding his unattractive characters and the lengths they go to to cling onto the coat tails of the big firms, but somehow he scrapes in towards the end.

    It was an eye opener to the world of 'ambulance chasers' who have created a monster in the legal system causing bona fide companies and professionals much angst as they are led to the slaughter of their expertise and characters for megabucks by these unsavoury lawyers. That said, it was a good yarn.

    Story
    "Got better as it went along."
    What made the experience of listening to The Litigators the most enjoyable?

    Not knowing where the story was going, which was a nice change


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Litigators?

    finding the toy responsible for making the boy sick


    Which character – as performed by Dennis Boutsikaris – was your favorite?

    I can't remember her name but the 96 year old in the bar that David Zinc drinks with.


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

    A David and Goliath tale with a twist, you don't always have to win to win.

    "A good partnership"

    Another brilliantly written book and the narration by Dennis Boutsikaris did it justice. I am now on the look out for other books that Dennis Boutsikaris has recited.

    Story
    "Fairly dry."

    I expected a little bit more action from this, especially after the beginning, which was intriguing. Got lost in the middle with all the paperwork, but listened to the end just to find out what happened. All in all, a fairly flat book, both in terms of the content and the performance.

    "endearing and gripping"

    This is unusually for Grisham, a heartwarming story. But still as gripping with unexpected twists and turns as you would expect from such a story spinner. The reading is also well done and makes the complicated legal terms easy on the ear.

    "A legal roller-coaster"

    I'm a fan of Grisham's legal thrillers and I really enjoyed this one as I couldn't predict the twists and turns there would be next as an ill-assorted threesome of lawyers take on a big pharmaceutical company with bottomless wallets. It's real David and Goliath tussle with many humourous interludes interleaved with the author's hall-mark taughtly written court-room scenes. There's a strong cast of memorable characters and I was sorry when the book ended.

    "Good Read"

    Another great John Grisham book. The usual court room drama and plot but this one has some funny characters as well. Excellent. Give it a go!

    "Guess what happens..."

    I like Grisham's work normally and like a bit of legal intrigue but I guessed what was going to happen far too early and although the words were good and reading fine I was glad to get it finished.

    "An absolute delight"

    I had not previously read any Grisham books but was so inspired by the enthusiasm shown by participants on Radio 4's "A good read" to this particular title that I decided it was time to take a look. But instead went for the audible format (great whilst driving or walking the dogs).



    You will immediately warm to this set of shambolic characters - and you will enjoy every minute of the story - which is exceptionally well read. Can thoroughly recommend. Have now just listened to my 2nd Grisham audible - that was great too...

    Story
    "david and goliath"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Litigators to be better than the print version?

    N/A


    What other book might you compare The Litigators to, and why?

    I haven't listened to many courtroom drama books. this one is a good one when it gets to the courtroom scenario.


    What does Dennis Boutsikaris bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    he brings the story to life with voices for the various characters. far better than reading the book. he made it a very good listening experience. I have listened to him before narrating books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    there isn't enough free time in a day to listen to it all in one sitting. it took me 3 days..


    Any additional comments?

    really liked the three main characters, Oscar, the head of the little firm, wally always on the the lookout for the big one which will scoop millions, and newcomer david free from his last soul destroying job and enjoying the freedom he now has.
    a little slow as the author introduced the characters but gathered speed as events unfolded..
    I fast forward the speech where it came to the political part, I didn't think it added anything to the story, that's why 4 stars.

    "A Good one of John Grishams"
    What did you like most about The Litigators?

    I have always liked John Grisham from his early books - I went off them a bit in the middle and started to find them excellent again after an Innocent man. It seems like he has gone back to his element. The narration is very good.
