posted a Quick Tip about The Last Juror. March 29, 2011
The Last Juror
Grisham has moved up a very large notch. With The Last Juror, he has proven his ability to write compelling human drama that doesn't rely upon simple chills and thrills to make the reader turn the pages. …

The Last Juror
Mississippi's Ford County local weekly newspaper hangs on the edge of bankruptcy and Willie Traynor, a rather shiftless ne'er do well college dropout, hears from a chum that a publication like …

Bleachers
If you're looking for a legal thriller, "Bleachers", neither legal nor thriller, is certainly not the drink for which you thirst! In a quiet, pastoral yet moving style of writing which he …
posted a Quick Tip about The Broker. October 02, 2010
The Broker
More than just an enjoyable spy vs spy thriller with the legal sub-text for which Grisham is so well known. As difficult as this might be to believe, it is also a charming romance and a well done travelogue …

The Broker
With technology stolen from two US defense contractors, a cutting edge satellite surveillance system dubbed Neptune was secretly built and launched under the very nose of the CIA and the rest of the world's …

The Broker
A powerful thriller that says a great deal about the power and misuse of power in the CIA combined, as difficult as this might be to believe, with a rather charming travelogue of the city of Bologna! …

The Rainmaker
In my headline, I described this as one of Grisham's most engaging works.  This is a big statement for me, because I can be a Grisham fanatic at times.  I've just about read every single …

The Associate
Another lawyerly Grisham. A good not too intense summer read.
reviewed The Associate. June 26, 2010
The Associate
The Associate written by John Graham is a balanced book. It is really good but the ending could have been better. Towards the end, you find out what the main character did, he could have done it at the …

A Painted House a novel by John Grisham
This book was recommended to me by three separate people. It's definately an interesting read.

The Last Juror
The year is 1970, and callow college dropout Will Traynor, with six months of journalism experience, buys the local newspaper in Clanton, Mississippi. The business is moribund until a woman is raped and …

The Associate
Interesting how I will probably be in the minority on this one. To me, John Griham can do little wrong with his writing. The Associate is really no exception. The story is detailed without being boring …
reviewed The Rainmaker (book). January 05, 2010
The Rainmaker
Methinks that John Grisham has a mellower side to his writing than we've seen thus far.       Certainly "The Rainmaker", rather than being the legal thriller that one might …

Bleachers
Most sports books involve a team that is struggling, there is conflict, both internal and external and then they manage to rise up and win "the big game at the end." Fortunately, and that is one of the …

People ask: How do you feel when you hear that ten lawyers drowned. They answer: It's a good start.   This joke could have been written by John Grisham whose best novels focus on the diabolical …

A Time to Kill
I am putting my neck on the line by going against thegeneralconsensus here. I liked alot of the book. Especially thelawyer. But I cannot say it is one of the greatest books I have ever read. It is …

A Painted House a novel by John Grisham
John Steinbeck is one of my favorite all-time authors (The Grapes of Wrath, East of Eden). Grisham has managed to capture Steinbeck's style and weave a tale that captures the reader right from the first …

The Associate
If you have read the last few John Grisham fiction books, then you probably don't have to read this review. The Associate contains the typical Grisham elements: nefarious agents seeking to pervert the …

The Associate
I read some of the reviews before I read this book to try and get a feel for it and from what I was reading I was like "uh oh", I hope this isn't a Grisham bomb!! Thankfully this book IS NOT near as bad …

The Associate
This novel grabbed me on the first page. Why is this bright young law grad doing community service? Why is the FBI stalking him? And why is he so nervous? The plot reminded me of The Firm, which I enjoyed. …

The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small
Unlike most of the known reading universe, I am not particularly a John Grisham fan. I like his writing, but his subject matter, legal thrillers, does nothing for me and in fact I avoid such subject matter …

The Runaway Jury
The Runaway Jury is one of those old favorites that I find hard to review because I know the plot and the characters so well that it is impossible to recapture the sense of suspense and mystery that I …
