The Litigators

For my first read in August I read, The Litigators by John Grisham.  The story follows lawyer David Zinc, who is burnt out at his job at a big law firm and finds his way to the ambulance chaser law offices of Finley & Figg.  F&F are two partners who have a slew of their own issues and shortly after Zinc comes on board they decide to take on the biggest case of their careers in hopes to finally get rich.

Another recommendation from my Grisham fan husband, and I really enjoyed this book.  A lot of Grisham's work comes off as very technical and serious, however this book was fun.  The characters and overall feel felt more laid back.  I enjoyed each character and the cases they worked on were interesting and easy to follow.  I have always appreciated the knowledge that Grisham puts into his work, he really knows his law which makes the stories more engrossing and authentic.

I highly recommend reading this book.  It is very well written, enjoyable and another win for Grisham.


  1. Read this one last week. I thought it was good but predictable. The characters were fun though! I appreciate the details too.

    I did finish the Bloggess and Ian Michael Black books. I agree with you completely on both :)

  2. His books usually are a bit predictable, tis true. I'm so glad you thought the characters were fun too! I think it is why I enjoyed this one so much, I love laid back Grisham :)

    Hurray! Thanks for coming back and sharing that with me, makes me feel good. Thanks for sharing your current read on your other comment, I hope you'll keep doing that too. I'm always looking for new things to read!

  3. Back to tell you about the other book. I was only half through the first chapter when I commented.
    It gets weird.
    Like, ummmmm....super great and weird and creepy and ohmygosh gross by the end of the first chapter.
    And then it gets boring.
    Really boring.
    And then good again.
    Back and forth through the whole thing.
    I finished it but wasn't as thrilled as I was in the beginning.

    1. Thanks for the update! Good job finishing it! I feel guilty when I don't finish books no matter how bad they are, lol. Except classics....I'll admit I only read parts of several of those assigned in high school :)
