Review

Praise for John Grisham:'The best thriller writer alive' -- Ken Follett, Evening Standard 'His stories are ferociously plot driven: they will keep you awake all night' -- Independent on Sunday 'Grisham is a superb, instinctive storyteller' -- The Times 'Few writers have so much to say, the skills to make reading what they say an irresistible pleasure - and the clout to say it to an audience of millions' -- Independent 'Enthralling characters and mesmeric plot' -- Time Out 'As exciting as a car chase with a load of dynamite thrown in' -- Daily Mail 'Grisham reigns supreme' -- Sunday Express 'No one does it better than Grisham' -- Daily Telegraph 'Grisham knows what he's doing. The book is crisply written (with some agreeably sly one-liners) and the narrative canters along.' -- Andrew Taylor, The Spectator '...entirely gripping...' -- The Evening Standard 20111201 'Grisham in reliable form.' -- The Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin 20111126 'The Litigators is Grisham at his very best, fast-paced, funny and packed with living and breathing characters that you'd love to share an after-court beer with. Set aside a weekend for this one, because you won't want to put it down'. -- Irish Examiner 20111112 'This is the master of the legal thriller at his best. You won't want to put it down!' -- Press Association 20111112 'After a slow build setting the scene, the case turns pear-shaped; and by the time we get to court, there's a compelling argument for readers to demolish this classic page-turner in one epic sitting.' -- Townsville Bulletin 20111119 The Litigators reminds fans of this genre just what a creative genius Grisham is. A very entertaining read.' -- Launceston Examiner 20111112 'Grisham is back on top form with this courtroom thriller... Unusually for Grisham he is injecting quite a lot of humour into this book which I found worked really well... 'The Litigators' is a courtroom battle that will keep you turning the pages until the end, wanting to see the big guns fail, but you will have to wait until the last few pages until you find out who wins. A welcome return to form for Grisham.' -- Crimesquad.com 20111112 'Grisham hasn't lost his deft touch. What a rollicking ride it turns out to be.' -- Sunday Telegraph and Sunday Herald Sun 20111204 'A tremendously entertaining romp, filled with the kind of courtroom strategies, theatrics and suspense that have made John Grisham America's favourite storyteller.' -- Gympie Times 20111203

A thoroughly enjoyable outing from the master of the legal thriller. Our hero, David Zinc, walks out of his high-pressure career in a huge, high-flying law firm; and walks into the firm of Finley & Figg, ambulance-chasers extraordinaire. Oscar, Wally and their secretary Rochelle (to say nothing of the dog) only just manage to keep their heads above water by pursuing injury cases and divorces, and their tactics are not the most ethical. David is a Harvard graduate and son of a judge but has never actually been inside a courtroom. This mismatched group suddenly finds itself handling a potentially massive lawsuit against a major pharmaceutical giant, being represented by David's former employers.

This book is much more light-hearted than some of Grisham's other novels and has lots of humour. Wally dreams of making it rich with one massive settlement, Oscar dreams of being rich enough to divorce his wife, while David dreams of having enough energy left at the end of the working day to start a family with his lovely (and very understanding) wife, Helen.

Well-written, as Grisham's novels always are, this time we get an insight into the distinctly unglamorous and uncertain life of the lower echelons of legal life and while it might not be much fun for the lawyers, it certainly is for us. Despite their flaws, all three of the lawyers are enjoyable characters that we warm to more and more as the book progresses. My only complaint is that Grisham's books are usually stand-alone, so we probably won't get to meet with them again. All the more reason to enjoy this outing. Highly recommended.

I have only read a few of Grisham's books and they tended to be heavy going at times - I only bought this because it was on offer in a national supermarket chain. It is as if this book was by a different author. It flows surprisingly well and fits together quite naturally.

While there are moments of black humour you can see quite early on what is going to shine through. There is no preaching or long speeches educating the reader in case law or legal process which aids the flow of the story. The characters are quite real and beautifully portrayed a little at a time rather than big chunks up front. I would have liked a bit more detail as the story closes but perhaps it was written this way to set up a sequel and if so then I look forward to it.

Essentially this is the story of someone who in a moment of apparent insanity walks away from their high paid job and I suspect there are a few of us who would love to be able to do likewise.

I'm not sure what I am going to read next as this will be hard to follow and I rarely feel like that after finishing a book.

Oscar Finley an ex cop, and Wally Figg a recovering alcoholic run a law firm in Chicago with the help of their assistant Rochelle. Their speciality, ambulance chasing, hustling injury cases and any other scam they can find proves to be not too profitable, this small company who call themselves a "boutique firm" are always looking for their big break. Along comes David Zinc, a Harvard graduate who has been working for a lucrative law firm, very high salary with too much pressure. No longer able to cope David decides on a whim to leave, after spending a drunken day in a bar reassessing his life he finds himself walking into a new job working for the incorrigible Finley and Figg. The story unfolds as the opportunity arises for these three dynamic men to take on a large pharmaceutical company who appear to be selling a lethal drug. A thoroughly interesting, well written and enjoyable read.

After the disappointment, as reviewed, of John Grisham's `the Associates', I did tend towards the belief that Mr. Grisham had perhaps lost his writing `edge', a problem not unknown in the creative world.

But my interest and admiration for this craftsman has been rekindled by his latest offering, `The Litigators' because in that novel, Mr, Grisham is back on top form. His dialogue is crisp, and in places extremely funny.

His plotlines were brought from real life, his writing about the small boy, damaged beyond all help by a negligent toy manufacturer is both real and understanding; his characters weren't cardboard cut-outs, but real, imperfect human beings.

I liked the manner of his hero's awakening to the drone-like truth of his existence, and especially the scenes in Abner's bar, with one of the strangest walk-on parts ever crafted being the 93 year-old millionairess who just liked getting sozzled.

A triumphant return to the best-seller listings from this wordsmith and craftsman

A short review: I paid £7 for this and have just read it through in just less than 7 hours. All the main characters are portrayed as decent people especially Mr and Mrs Zinc. As someone else said the ending is easy to guess from about a third of the way in but that does not stop this being a cracking story. If your favourite film is (like me) "A Wonderful Life" I think that there is every chance you'll enjoy reading this. Not a five star effort but well worth four I think !

The basic story is hopelessly improbable. A stressed-out Harvard Law School corporate law associate at a major firm gets drunk, literally falls into a two-partner, no associates, no - ethics litigation firm and goes to work for them merrily signing pleadings, bank guarantees and promises of huge damages to contingency fees clients. BUT it is a hugely enjoyable story which had me laughing out loud at times. I was absolutely gripped, desperate to know what would happen next, read it through mealtimes, cut the dog's walk short and was half-surprised by the ending. It is a great fun read.
