Loved the plot loved the writing. But had to take a star away for the pace. There were just too many chapters that seemed to drag out between Mitch and Abby. ( )

I had read this novel way back in the mid-1990s, much before I was on Goodreads. The release of the sequel prompted me to pick it up again (paired with the audiobook this time). One of my favorites from John Grisham, I enjoyed it this time as much as I did over twenty-five years ago. The only difference is that this time, I could visualize the setting having visited Memphis, The Peabody (loved those ducks!) and The Rendezvous (the food is delicious!). It was fun to be able to relate to those experiences!

Mitch McDeere, fresh out of Harvard Law School passes up the opportunity to work on Wall Street for a small firm in Memphis, Bendini, Lambert & Locke, with an enviable salary, benefits, and ample opportunity for growth. Mitch promptly packs up and moves to Memphis with his wife Abby. Little did he know then that The Firm was being covertly investigated by the FBI for financial crimes and links to the mob and he would be right in the middle of it all, endangering his career and his life. The narrative follows Mitch as he looks for a way out before it is too late.

The Firm by John Grisham is surely one of his best works and one that has stood the test of time. Despite this being a second reading, I was immersed in the story until the very end. Well-thought-out characters, consistent pacing, a gripping plot, and Grisham’s masterful storytelling – what more could we ask for? Could not recommend this novel enough!

I paired my reading with the audio narration by Scott Brick which made for an entertaining immersion reading experience! ( )

The legal firm in this book is a horrible place. I only wanted the lead character to find a way out, but it took too long to be very enjoyable. This is one of the volumes that made me suspicious of any long book. ( )

Riletto dopo tanto tempo mantiene intatto il fascino della prima lettura. Grisham ha uno stile e un modo di raccontare che mi avvince e conquista ogni volta. ( )
  Raffaella10 | Jun 7, 2023 |
Of all Grisham's novels, The Firm is one of his best. Engaging, evocative and filled with surprises, it takes the reader on a journey into the 'dark' world of a law firm immersed in illegitimate enterprise, aka paradox. I read this book when it first came out, so memory of details isn't spot on. That said, the film adaptation has been one of my favorites, Tom Cruise aside :) Regardless, I'm a fan of Grisham's storytelling, his remarkable knowledge of law, trials, and all things associated.
