  • John Grisham The Appeal??

    Anyone read it?

    Just really wondering if any of our lawyer types have read it, and what do they think about the underlying issue of politics in the judiciary and is real life anything like the book?


    Oh, and so far a pretty damn good book, audio book...

    I read the book, and although my wife says I would have made a good attorney, I'm not in the law business. I found the book to be interesting, albeit a little predictable. I'm sure that, to a degree, there is some truth to how politics and money intermingle with the election of judges. One need look no further than Madison County to see countless examples of abuse of the system.

      I've read every one of his books and have enjoyed them for the most part. I need to check this one out.

        Maybe the worst ending to anything ever

              I thought The Chamber was the worst Grisham novel, horrible ending

                    It was GREAT, I was gonna come home from work and give it a madyaks super duper write up, all the way until the last few FUCKING PAGES.
                    Really good story, if you are a dad and really get into the book you might cry at one point. But the last few pages were like he mailed it in, he could have gone so many different ways, he had so much there to work with and he just bent me over and said....

                    I was pissed.
