The Client is a worthy read with an intriguing, thought provoking plot. The book manages to keep the readers attention well throughout and culminates in a predictable but exciting finale. I was again hooked after another of Grisham's legendary first chapters and consumed the book in a week. My only complaint is that Grisham placed too greater emphasis on description often holding up the story's flow. As a result I often found myself skimming pages in the middle section and feel that the book could have been significantly shorter. I have, therefore, given it four stars as opposed to its easily achievable five. However, don't let this deter you from reading it, as it really is a classy book. Buy it.
