It may seem a strang e choice to review a book coming 10 years old, however, this continues to be sitting on my shelf getting dusty, and as oahu is the only Grisham book I have not read, I chose to use it while I waited for that new Lee Child to be sold. I'm glad I did. - Bronx DUI LAWYER
It tells the story of Michael Brock, Corporate Lawyer earning lots of money, pretty wife, fast lane to partner status and millionairedom. Everything is rosy until a strange incident occurs. A vagrant, a street dweller hijacks the lawyers inside their tower-block office and before he is able to explain his demands, special-forces blow him away. The vagrant's brains are splashed over Brock's face. It changes his lifestyle, but it might.
He starts to take a desire for the homeless, he resigns his cushy job and big bucks, loses his wife, and represents pro bono unpaid legal focus on behalf of the street people, and that's just the beginning of his journey.
This book concentrates attention on homeless people in American inner cities. Whether their plight has greatly changed inside the intervening a decade We have not a clue, but my prediction is things haven't altered much.
Of course with Mister Grisham's books the narrative rushes along. I had been never tempted to duck any pages and it's also very easy to see why he's got shifted numerous copies of his books over time. I liked this one a great deal. It had been thought provoking, retained my attention throughout, despite the fact that I sort of guessed the ending well before I personally arrived there, I used to be never disappointed.
If you like Grisham, you'll such as this. If you don't like Grisham you'll likely still like it. Definitely recommended.
Coincidentally this time John Grisham was in London to collect an eternity achievement award for amongst other things, selling over 250 million books. Incredibly he stated he had never won an award before. Perhaps writers ought to be more valued by people, and feted too. - Bronx DUI LAWYER
