Grisham usually develops his story line and characters very thoroughly and grips the reader in a problem -- usually a David and Goliath -- that needs to be resolved.
The Litigators was less compelling and engaging with regard to both these aspects. However, it was definitely worth persevering with because the resolution was, as usual, satisfying and clever. The reader, Dennis Boutsikaris, although professional, had a drawl and flat tone that contributed to a book that I felt largely lacked Grisham's usual vibrancy and energy.

I've been disappointed in John Grisham's later novels but managed to stay with this one to the end. He goes into great detail in bulding his unattractive characters and the lengths they go to to cling onto the coat tails of the big firms, but somehow he scrapes in towards the end.
It was an eye opener to the world of 'ambulance chasers' who have created a monster in the legal system causing bona fide companies and professionals much angst as they are led to the slaughter of their expertise and characters for megabucks by these unsavoury lawyers. That said, it was a good yarn.

This is unusually for Grisham, a heartwarming story. But still as gripping with unexpected twists and turns as you would expect from such a story spinner. The reading is also well done and makes the complicated legal terms easy on the ear.

I had not previously read any Grisham books but was so inspired by the enthusiasm shown by participants on Radio 4's "A good read" to this particular title that I decided it was time to take a look. But instead went for the audible format (great whilst driving or walking the dogs).
You will immediately warm to this set of shambolic characters - and you will enjoy every minute of the story - which is exceptionally well read. Can thoroughly recommend. Have now just listened to my 2nd Grisham audible - that was great too...

Wonderful as always. The reader has a great voice with a good use of tone and inflection to highlight the story. Hail John Grisham, master of legal storjes.
As a JG fan I have high expectations of these stories. I have not been disappointed.
