5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiringly Brilliant., 21 Jan 2005
This review is from: The Firm (Mass Market Paperback)
If I ever saw a classic Grisham this is it ladies and gents. This was the very first Grisham I ever picked up, my dad assured me that it was excellent and on that basis gave it a read. I would like to offer YOU the same assurance. This book is simply inimitable. If you have a liking for the legal and a thirst for thrillers, hay presto, this is what you've been looking for.
The Firm tells the story Mitchell McDeere - Mitch, practically the best that Harvard Law School has to offer, is in demand. All the big boys want him, Wall Street, you name it. After the interview he passed before he got there, he starts work, as a tax layer for Bendini, Lambert & Locke, a small Memphis firm that are apparently more of a family than a firm. The trouble starts hear.
What started out as a very rosy beginning for Mitch, a new BMW, house and student loan paid off by the firm not to mention a huge salary, begins to turn into a nightmare. The firm is not legit. Their crooks. Now Mitch has to get out.
This book, I think, was once described as a compulsive page turner, and man, thats so right. Comfortably within my top five books of all time. And something you need to read! Very strongly recommended to the first time reader of the fantastic and brilliantly talented Grisham.
If you've never read a Grisham - you've never read.

Dear Dahlia89

Amazon puts audio and text book reviews in the same place.

Next time, please make an intelligent comment (if you're capable of doing so).
