I really enjoyed this book. The characters' descriptions were great. I really enjoyed these quirky characters who always found themselves in troubles and their relationship together. The book had lots of hilarious situations. A serious book at the same time, as it described the power of the pharmaceutical industries and the sleazy lawyers who represent them as well as those, often just as sleazy, who make a living taking them to court for putting dangerous drugs into the market. But honesty was not totally lost... With some sad cases getting help from honest lawyer... Not all are crooked. A good read. Recommended.

One word to describe this book....boring. I usually like his novels so I kept reading through one third of the book, but it did not get any better. Too much courtroom talk and no action. Returned it without finishing it.

a formula book but enjoyable to read!!

As with most Grisham novels, an excellent read. I found the conclusion especially satisfying. The lines between the 'good guys' and 'bad guys' are blurred, as is their outcome.

Didn't have time to read and had to return. May get it out sometime.

A satisfying read. As usual Grisham makes it easy for the reader to get involved with the characters and to care about what will happen next.

An excellent book by Grisham about the craziness and insanity of the modern tort lawyer system that promises very vulnerable people their "justly-owed money that they have been somehow screwed out of.
Meanwhile, these over-blown "ambulance-chasers can get very rich for shaking down the business that they are going after. (John Edwards made 16 million off of 1 lawsuit!)
Grisham very accurately portrays the damage that this kind of lawsuit can do to everyone:the victims, the companies being sued, and the lawyers themselves.
This kind of lawsuit should definitely be reformed and Grisham does an excellent job in giving a very good portrayal of the flaws of our legal sytem!
