I decided to give this book a try, since people are always raving about Grisham and his court room dramas. I found it mildly enjoyable, although a tad predictable and a bit redundant at times. I felt like it dragged on for much to long, and could easily have been trimmed down a few hundred pages and still keep the same story. The characters were well-developed for the most part; there were a few who quietly faded into the background, only to re-appear occasionally as though to remind the reader they still existed. Because it was written in the 90s, some of the cultural references were dated and unaffective. For the most part, I can understand why people enjoy his novels so much; they're light and breezy, and have just enough plot twists for the average reader to stay involved. Perhaps I will dive into another Grisham story soon, but not at the moment. 3.5/5
