Everyone knows that screenplays are not always true to the book or clumsily truncated versions, but I enjoyed the movie by this name. However, the book is one of my favorite John Grisham novels. Mixing legal and insurance (as they do in the real world) and revealing the relationship between the two and the real lives that get mangled in the process strikes an authentic chord with anyone who's had to deal with such issues, and makes the rest of us shudder because but for the grace of God . . . And Mr. Grisham makes the characters easy to identify with or villify. Of, course we are (as we should be) left none the worse for the read and always with hope.
Loved the book and the movie!
John Grisham at his best.
How wonderful it is to read a book that has everything. This book has emotion, action and drama. There were parts of the book that were hilarious. It is well written and has those off the wall details that make the book very entertaining. The characters feel real. So how could I stop reading it with all these qualities?
in his first court room thriller since a time to kill, John Grisham tells the story of a young man barley out of law school who finds himself taking on one of the most powerful, corrupt, and ruthless companys in America- and exposing a complex , multi billion sollar insurance scam
Another great Grisham book.
A John Grisham classic. Better than the movie. A great read for a long trip on the airplane or train because it keeps you turning the pages. Grisham's details and rich characters are compelling. I definitely recommend this book to Grisham fans or newbies alike!
A young lawyer who does yard work in exchange for rent. He has only one job: an insurance dispute that leaves a family devastated and opens the door for a lawsuit.
As always, John Grisham weaves a story more and more tightly until you are entangled in the story and have to see how it ends.
this was a great great book. personally, my favorite of john grisham's novels.
This has four cassettes and is read by Michael Beck. This is a very good story. To complete law school he has to provide free legal advice to senior citizens. His first client was mistreated by a large insurance company.
Another great Grisham suspense!
