When a friend loaned me this book, I read the plot summary and wondered how a civil trial could possibly be as good as a typical Grisham plot of criminal behaviors. Well, I was hooked pretty quickly. Grisham's talent as a storyteller is evident, because I was able to keep up with all the different backgrounds and opinions of the jury members with no effort at all. I was worried that I'd not be able to keep track of the jury members, but Grisham made them each a unique being, and their manipulation at the hands of the jury-tamperers was fascinating to watch.

When I read this book back in 2003, I commented that I never thought it could be made into a movie, because how could someone bring all these characters to life as well as they were done on the page? It has been made into a movie now, so I suppose the next step is for me to watch that.

A precedent-settling legal battle against big tobacco is in the hands of the jury, but one of the jurors is manipulating the verdict. Was a major motion picture.

A very suspenseful tale of jury duty. You never know what's going on behind the curtains.
