Hard to believe, but there was a time when the word "lawyer" wasn't synonymous with "criminal," and the idea of a law firm controlled by the Mafia was an outlandish proposition. This intelligent, ensnaring story came out of nowhere--Oxford, Mississippi, where Grisham was a small-town lawyer--and quickly catapulted to the top of the bestseller list, with good reason. Mitch McDeere, the appealing hero, is a poor kid whose only assets are a first-class mind, a Harvard law degree, and a beautiful, loving wife. When a Memphis law firm makes him an offer he really can't refuse, he trades his old Nissan for a new BMW, his cramped apartment for a house in the best part of town, and puts in long hours finding tax shelters for Texans who'd rather pay a lawyer than the IRS. Nothing criminal about that. He'd be set for life, if only associates at the firm didn't have a funny habit of dying, and the FBI wasn't trying to get Mitch to turn his colleagues in. The tempo and pacing are brilliant, the thrills keep coming, and the finish has a wonderful ironic flourish. It's not hard to see why Grisham changed the genre permanently with this one, and few of his colleagues in a very crowded field come close to equaling him. --Jane Adams
"Taut, fast and relentless... A ride worth taking."—San Francisco Chronicle.
"Keeps the reader hooked... From the creepy first chapters... to the vise-tightening midsection and on to the take-the money-and-run finale." —Wall Street Journal
"Irresistible... seizes the reader on the opening page and propels him through 400 more."—Peter Prescott, Newsweek.

socieconomic ladder and establishing himself within his associates...then later to find that his entire
future is in jepordy. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has never read any of Grisham's
books or has not the silightest interest in law or any matters related to it. This is a fantastic novel that
I managed to stay up untill 4 AM sometimes reading it because I could not put it down. As I said,
this is a great way to be introduced into John Grisham's works. By far this is my favorite novel of his
and of any other multitude of genre or author I have had the pleasure of reading. The Firm is also
probabally the most ejoyed and is revered as his finest work. This is true, pure Grisham at his best.
This book I highly reccommend.
STRENGTHS/WEAKNESSES: Grisham's character development is perfect in a sense where you know the characters, but not too well. The predictability of the book is impossible as well as the ability to put it down. The scene changes act as a stimulant for the reader, not elaborating one part of the book too much. Grisham did a supurb job in entailing drama, suspense, and humor into his work.
This book was the first of Grisham's I read and it will not be the last.
