Publisher's Summary

The classic legal thriller and huge bestseller from master of the genre John Grisham.

David Zinc has it all: Big firm, big salary, life in the lawyer's fast lane.

Until the day he snaps and throws it all away.

Leaving the world of corporate law far behind, he talks himself into a new job with Finley & Figg. A self-styled 'boutique' firm with only two partners, Oscar Finley and Wally Figg are ambulance-chasing street lawyers who hustle nickel-and-dime cases, dreaming of landing the big win.

For all his Harvard Law Degree and five years with Chicago's top firm, Zinc has never entered a courtroom, never helped a client who really needed a lawyer, never handled a gun.

All that is about to change.

    "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.

    "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.

    "really great listen. Grisham as always delivers"

    I always enjoy Grisham, listening to him is like putting on a favourite sweater, comfortable and you know what you're gwtting, and the litigators did not disappoint.

    I thought it was well read although sometimes the intonation or expression didn't quite match what was being said but on the whole well acted.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish.

    "Analysis"

    A different approach from Grisham. If you like your story to be more streamlined this is not for you.
    It's a group of stories within a story but non the less for all that it has its own merits just not Grisham's usual style.
    Enjoyable in a different just didn't have quite the depth of subject matter or moralistic\ethical stimulus that Grisham's writing brings to some of his subject matters with some of his great legal plots.

    "it all kinda happened in the last hour"

    A long build up that was eventually rewarding, but it just took to long. I honestly lost interest half way through, only to be woken up towards the end. A decent listen, but I wouldn't put it in any of the top lists.

    "Another gold star for John Grisham."

    This excellent story gathers steam after the introduction of its characters, and it was hard to put down. Classic Grisham fare.

    A Lawyer who escapes the treadmill, finds himself at the bottom of the ladder. The characters, the relationship and plot make this audiobook a jolly good listen.
